This year, there are three new topiaries debuting for the festival. Right at the entrance to the park, Guests will be greeted by Asha, Wish and Valentino from the all-new film Wish. Over in Mexico, Dante and Miguel from Coco will be debuting in topiary form. And right in front of the all-new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction, Groot will be taking root.
