First Look at NEW ‘Encanto’ & Tiana Topiaries for 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival

    Ahead of the March 1st start of the 2023 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, Disney has provided a first look at the new Encanto-themed topiaries and the new Tiana topiary. Here’s the announcement:

    Innovation can take many forms and often requires a group of people working together to make it possible. That’s what’s happening right now as teams across Walt Disney World Resort – from Horticulture to Merchandise – prepare to make the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival more spectacular than ever before. 

    Guests will see the fruits of all this work when the popular springtime festival debuts on March 1 and continues through July 5, 2023, at EPCOT.  

    Disney Horticulture and Walt Disney Imagineering worked together to design, build and grow diverse topiary masterpieces, including the debut of fearless Princess Tiana from the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic “The Princess and the Frog,” plus the courageous Madrigal sisters and young Antonio from Disney Animation’s Academy Award-winning “Encanto.”

    This process of pushing boundaries and growing new magic began nearly a year ago. Talented artists developed sketches, Imagineers designed 3D models, skilled welders molded frames, and horticulture specialists chose plant materials. The results are charming, whimsical – and definitely photo-worthy!
