Yesterday, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival opened. One of my favorite times of the year, I love to see all the amazing topiaries created by the horticulture team at Walt Disney World Resort. Below is a look at Peter Pan aboard Captain Hook’s pirate ship from the 2007 festival.


You have plenty of time to see this year’s topiaries. The festival runs through May 17th.


  • F&G is our favorite time to visit WDW. Saw it in ’13 and ’14, plus many years before. Eager to see it in the future.

  • Topiary Joe (Joe Kite) lives here in our small mountain town and still makes beautiful topiaries that are found all over the world. He did make a special contribution to the Disney parks.
