(Photos) 2015 Topiary Tour: Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Daisy Duck

The main planting bed at the entrance to Epcot has long been the centerpiece for topiaries during the flower and garden festivals.

This year is no different. The area, known as the “helicopter bed” by cast members (because a helicopter hired to take photos the day before Epcot opened hovered over the flowerbed and in doing so the downwash blew apart the planting bed) is host to a famous scene of an old Disney short.

The entrance to the 2015 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is a topiary scene inspired by a 1935 short called “Mickey’s Garden.” The scene includes Chip and Dale topiaries, plus Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto in a comical gardening scene.

More than 15 varieties of flowers, plants, and other garden materials are used to create the scene.
