New Art Installation Blooms Big at Downtown Disney
Whether you are planning a shopping or dining excursion to Downtown Disney, one thing is for certain- you’ll definitely want to take some time to stop and smell the (Disney-themed Roses.) Here at MickeyBlog, we’re excited to share the news that a new art installation has bloomed up at Disneyland’s Downtown Shopping District.
The Disneyland Resort Enhancement team was inspired to create this colorful addition to Downtown Disney after seeing anamorphic art installations in other public spaces around the world. The installation is designed to represent your favorite Disney characters, celebrate the season and add a big dose of Disney magic to your visit! Specific pieces include Mickey and Minnie Mouse having a picnic in the park, Donald chasing his hat and Goofy slipping while eating his ice cream. All o the images and styling were derived from the “A Mickey Mouse Cartoon” Series.
As you can see from the image above, this blooming exhibition is themed around the “Fab 5” as the core characters. The timing couldn’t be more perfect with Mickey celebrating his 90th birthday with a little help from his friends. Each pose is inspired by the unique personalities of each character.
One of our favorite things about this bloomingly beautiful installation is that in front of each planter there is “stand here” markers on the ground. This provides the perfect vantage point from which to check out each of the pieces. The markers are even meant to represent Mickey Mouse’s shoe print. How cute is that!?
More than 40 different varieties of plants were used to bring these colorful spaces to life. Each planter brings bright colors and textures including strong reds and yellows made to represent Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and sunflowers for Donald Duck. In addition, a variety of topiaries were inspired by the cartoons and visitors will find spirals, globes, cones, cubes, pyramids and more!
The incredible planters you’ll discover during your Downtown Disney visit are the end product of over 20 Horticultural and Resort Enhancement Cast Members who played a role in the design, fabrication, installation and maintenance of the overlay. This incredible exhibition is just one of the many the Downtown Disney District comes up with each year! Be sure to stop by an check out the Summer exhibition while you can because it won’t be long before it makes way for Fall.
