There is a dazzling array of over 70 topiary displays – some brand new!, gardens and exhibits—each featuring seasonal designs or several popular Disney characters, including some new ones.

Remy topiary is brand new for 2020.

Brand new in Epcot’s topiary lineup is Remy, a rat character from “Ratatouille,” standing on a piece of cheese in the France pavilion. He’s surrounded by planting that represent the ratatouille ingredients. (Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is set to open this summer.)

Topiary Magic Awaits You!

Some of the topiaries have moved around due to all the construction, but they’ve all returned this year!
