The International Flower & Garden Festival is currently taking place at EPCOT, with limited-edition merchandise collections, outdoor kitchens with hundreds of food and beverage offerings, and topiary displays, exhibits, and gardens. Guests can experience this springtime spectacular from March 2 to July 4.

Of course, topiary displays play a crucial role in making this festival remarkable, portraying beloved Disney characters like Goofy, who is accompanying the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration Cake, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, Figment, The Three Caballeros, Anna and Elsa, Winnie the Pooh and friends, and Tinker Bell. Guests can also visit an all-new Encanto-inspired garden available until May 22.

While many of the festival’s topiaries and flower gardens are stunning, blooming pieces of art, some exceptions can be found, as Twitter user Olivia (@streetmosphere) noted when she stumbled upon the photo of an underwhelming Scar topiary.

Responses quickly came in, asking how they hadn’t seen the photo before, and saying Scar was allergic to pollen, not to dive into other plant-related discussions that came up in the conversation.

After visiting magicthrougha_lens’ (@magicthrougha_lens) Instagram profile, we found out Scar wasn’t the only one going through a rough time with seasonal allergies, as Simba’s topiary isn’t much better looking.

After digging deeper into these topiaries, it was found the photos are from around 2010 and just recently resurfaced, causing hilarious reactions and proving the significant improvements the character topiaries at EPCOT have (fortunately) gone through over the years.
