Disney’s Interactive Gardens & Topiaries
Park goers are sure to be wowed by almost 100 topiaries on display at this year’s festival. Marvel at stunning topiaries shaped like your Favorite Disney characters including Anna & Elsa from Frozen or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as you stroll throughout the park. In honor of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie coming to theaters in March, look out for a new Belle topiary that will debut at the France pavilion.
