When it comes to attractions, if you asked anyone visiting Walt Disney World which park is lacking, they’d probably say EPCOT. Although the universally beloved park is home to Spaceship Earth, fabulous food, and unique festivals, it’s lacking in the attractions department, at least regarding rides. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to see and do at EPCOT, and with new Disney films like Wish (2023) to influence the sights and sounds of the famous park, the 2024 International Flower and Garden Festival has seen a few new arrivals that are turning heads.

The festivals at EPCOT are some of the best offerings at Walt Disney World. The current offering is EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival. This annual event at Walt Disney World Resort celebrates the wonders of flora with breathtaking floral displays, enchanting gardens, and vibrant topiaries. Guests can explore the World Showcase, adorned with stunning blooms, and participate in horticultural workshops to learn gardening tips and tricks. The festival also features live music, delicious food offerings, and interactive experiences for visitors of all ages. Don’t miss this magical springtime celebration at EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival.

Although you’ll find tons of fabulous food and drink around the World Showcase during the Flower and Garden festival, another huge draw is the amazing topiaries that pop up all over the park during the Spring celebration. Each one brings to life iconic characters and scenes from popular Disney offerings, typical of what you’d expect at Walt Disney World.

This year’s festival edition is no different but brings a few new astonishing topiaries to EPCOT, including one that is beautifully bright, especially at night!

Ashely Carter posted recently to X, formerly Twitter, a fantastic shot of this new attraction at EPCOT, a Wish-inspired topiary that can be seen with Spaceship Earth lit up in the background.

If you haven’t seen it, Wish is a heartwarming, Walt Disney Animation Studios animated film that takes viewers on a magical adventure.

Although the film didn’t perform well in theatres during its release last year, the story, which features the voice talents of Ariana DeBose (Asha) and Chris Pine (King Magnifico), combines classic Walt Disney Animation Studios features in an attempt to bring the golden age of Disney animation back to life.

With fascinating characters like King Magnifico and Queen Amaya, Wish is a better movie than received initially, and its new topiary at the 2024 Flower and Garden Festival is a must-see, perfect for those Instagram photos, especially at night.

Although this particular topiary is turning heads, you’ll find many others as you venture around EPCOT and the World Showcase. Miquel from Coco, Elsa Anna, and other newcomers like Groot await guests at the 2024 International Flower and Garden Festival, one of the most highly anticipated events you’ll find in any of the four Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort.
