Disneyland Paris is dedicating Earth Month to nature and the environment, all with a touch of magic that everyone can discover from home. Guests can learn more about the resort’s commitments as a sustainable and responsible member of the community, find out about how the Magic Keepers on the horticulture team are maintaining the magic at Disneyland Paris, enjoy some fun themed activities and participate in special broadcasts of nature-inspired Disney shows by tuning into the Disneyland Paris Facebook page to enjoy all the magic.
Throughout April, Disneyland Paris shared updates on its continued commitment to environmental stewardship, which includes three key priorities to be an innovative and sustainable tourism destination – reducing environmental impact, enriching biodiversity, and inspiring guests and cast members to take action for the environment. Find out more in this video!
This month, Disneyland Paris also took time to recognize some of the “Magic Keepers,” who continue to maintain the magic at the parks, even during this exceptional period. This includes a small group of cast members from the Nature and Environment team, who are taking care of our resort’s green spaces by tending to the thousands of flowers, shrubs and trees that bring Disneyland Paris to life.
Throughout the year, the horticulture team, consisting of gardeners and arboriculturalists, carry out innovative and sustainable initiatives to encourage biodiversity throughout Disneyland Paris, with more than 400 hectares of green spaces, maintained to preserve the local heritage and ensure that the magic of nature continues at the resort.
Finally, Disneyland Paris’s environment team partnered with the start-up Wakatoon last spring to launch an interactive coloring game for guests that combines play and creativity with an environmentally-friendly message. Today, we’re excited to bring you an at-home, digital version of the game! Families can color drawings of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, which can then be uploaded to the Wakatoon app to see the images come alive and reveal educational messages on how selective sorting works.
