Topiary Displays Sprout Up in China and Morocco Pavilions
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog recently, you’ll know that Epcot is in the midst of a very exciting, and very festive, changeround!
With less than a week remaining of the 2023 International Festival of the Arts, the park is still ablaze with breath-taking artwork, foodie delights, and Broadway music spectaculars.
However, while all this buzz is still going on, the park is also getting ready for the next big event of 2023.
Can you guess what it might be? We think all these gorgeous blooms our MickeyBloggers spotted this weekend might give it away!
Yep, we can already see and smell the sweet scents of the 2023 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which is due to begin in the park on March 1st!
Each year we see the Walt Disney World garden and Imagineering teams get to work nice and early to transform the park into the most spectacular of seasonal displays. This includes dazzling floral beds, herb gardens, and more – but one particular type of display that always get us talking is the festival topiaries.
Each year, we absolutely love admiring all the cute, character and themed topiaries crop up in all corners of the park.
We were so excited when our MickeyBloggers found the first two displays arrive in the World Showcase this weekend!
Our journey begins in the Morocco pavilion, where this captivating floral display has just arrived.
This pop-up garden features delicate trees and towering designs resembling studded dried fruit ornaments, with intricate ceramic planters stuffed full of a range of herbs and other fragrant greenery.
The flowers studding this display are radiant shades of orange, yellow, and pink, bringing beautiful Moroccan sunshine to the pavilion.
We love it!
Moving around the World Showcase, our MickeyBloggers also spotted some sweet, familiar faces over in the China pavilion.
It’s the panda topiaries!
These absolutely gorgeous pandas can be seen playing in front of the pavilion’s iconic temple, with each of the three bears happily enjoying a sprout of fresh bamboo.
They may be intricately cut from shrubbery, but it’s hard to resist climbing in and giving these pandas a cuddle!
We’re so excited to see the first garden and topiary displays arrive at Epcot, and we’ll be on the hunt for many more as the Flower & Garden Festival draws nearer. In the meantime, you can check out some of the displays we enjoyed at last years’ festival here.
