4. Peter Pan, Captain Hook and the Crocodile

This is another classic but a good one. Peter Pan and Captain Hook are once again in full battle with the Peter Pan topiary being located way up high on the rooftop of a building in the UK Pavilion. At the same time the hungry crocodile is keeping his eye on Captain Hook.

3. Donald Duck and friends

This topiary scene is the first one you will spot when entering Epcot and is a rare one that actually changes every year. Daisy Duck, Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louis are all out in full force at the entrance of the park. This topiary makes for some amazing pictures with the wonderful Spaceship Earth in the background.

1. Beauty and the Beast

Our top spot goes to this “Tale as old as time” topiary scene from the movie Beauty and the Beast in the France Pavilion. Belle, Beast, Cogsworth and Lumiere continues to greet guests in France and almost all of the topiaries now has the more advanced, detailed face. The flowers and wonderful fountains in France make this an incredibly charming spot and definitely one not to miss.
