The troll topiary and panda topiaries have been installed for the 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. We previously noted a butterfly topiary and Tinker Bell topiary had been installed.
The troll topiary is located in a planter at the Norway Pavilion. He’s outside Anna and Elsa’s Royal Sommerhus, facing the World Showcase Lagoon. The Norway Pavilion will also have Anna and Elsa topiaries located nearby.
The troll is yellow with fluffy green pants. He holds a walking stick with a lantern hanging at the end of it.
Trolls are creatures in Nordic folklore. They were prominently featured in Maelstrom, the Norway Pavilion boat ride replaced by Frozen Ever After. There are still some troll decorations throughout the land.
There are three panda topiaries, appearing to play and eat bamboo in a flower bed near the edge of the China Pavilion. One panda is on its back while the other two sit up.
The China Pavilion will also have the returning Bamboo Garden and the new China Penjing Garden: “Discover ancient Chinese art that recreates miniature landscapes.”
Check out the full list of topiaries and global gardens coming to the 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. The festival will run from February 28 to May 27, 2024 — a full month shorter than previous years.
