The official start of winter is still a few days away, but spring is already in the air at Disney. The Disney World horticulture team is busy creating topiaries, hanging baskets, and flower towers. This is in preparation for the 2022 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.

This popular Epcot festival runs from March 2 through July 4. This gives guests 125 days to enjoy unique cuisine, gardens, topiaries and fun entertainment.

Since the festival is taking place during the Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration, be on the look out for special touches. This includes a new main entrance topiary display with Goofy and a 50th-themed birthday cake.

Also, favorite Disney Character topiaries will be included. When visiting, be on the lookout for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Germany pavilion. Lumiere and Cogsworth will also greet you at the France pavilion.
