You can’t miss it … Floral Mickey. He greets you in all his colorful splendor as soon as you enter Disneyland park. For many guests, he is often the first photo of their magical day, making it one of the most-photographed locations in Disneyland park. The flowers that make up Mickey’s face vary depending on the season. During the cooler seasons, Violas are often used; during the warmer seasons, the outstanding Disney Horticulture team plants alyssums. These are specifically chosen because they give Mickey that “black and white” look in a photograph or from a distance. I know what you are wondering … How many flowers are used to create Floral Mickey? If you include the scrolls on the side, it’s 7,000 plants total — 4,500 on Mickey alone. Check out the video below to see how Floral Mickey has changed through the years. Enjoy!
