This annual celebration will be slightly different, but beautiful flowers, topiaries with character, fan-favorite entertainment, and family fun can be found around every corner.
Throughout the park, guests will be able to find topiaries of beloved animals and Disney characters that have been hand-created by Disney horticulturists.
