Dis­ney World has re­vealed part of its lineup for the Gar­den Rocks con­cert se­ries and iden­ti­fied a new top­i­ary that will de­but dur­ing the up­com­ing Ep­cot In­ter­na­tional Flower & Gar­den Fes­ti­val. Theme park­go­ers will be able to see a leafy ver­sion of Remy, a char­ac­ter from “Rata­touille” and a key fig­ure in a ride de­but­ing next sum­mer.

The new Remy top­i­ary will be in­stalled in a Rata­touille Gar­den in the park’s France pav­il­ion, which also will be the home of the Remy’s Rata­touille Ad­ven­ture at­trac­tion. The gar­den will fea­ture veg­eta­bles used in a rata­touille recipe, Dis­ney says. Other planned top­i­aries for the 2020 fes­ti­val will de­pict Dis­ney char­ac­ters such as Tinker Bell, Snow White, Bambi, Buzz Lightyear, Anna, Elsa, Miss Piggy and Ker­mit the Frog.

The event’s Gar­den Rocks con­certs will fea­ture first-timers Daugh­try (“It’s Not Over,” “Feels Like Tonight”) and Don McLean (“Amer­i­can Pie,” “Cry­ing”). The con­certs, in­cluded in park ad­mis­sion, run three times daily dur­ing the fes­ti­val.
