Disneyland’s Floral Mickey Through The Years

train-floral-mickey

The first and last photo of many a guest’s Disneyland visit is taken in front of the world renown Floral Mickey. So popular was the first one, that they’re a common feature of every Magic Kingdom style park. Of course, Mickey has seen a few changes over the years:

It takes over 4,500 plants to make Mickey’s face. The whole display can take around 7,000 plants. Flowers used depend on the season, of course. Violas are good during cooler seasons and Asylums for warmer temps. From a distance, these colors appear to be black and white.

How many photos do you have of the Floral Mickey? Can you name the Magic Kingdom where the Floral Mickey is not found in front of the train station?

    Actually there are two Magic Kingdoms which don’t have a Mickey in front of the Train Station. One is Disneyland Paris; here the Mickey is at the entrance of Disneyland Park in Fantasia Gardens, just in front of the Disneyland Hotel, which is the entrance to the park. The station is behind the Hotel.
    The other one is Tokyo Disneyland; Here the train station is not at the entrance of the park, but in the middle of Adventureland.

  2. Very cool little video! That 2007 Mickey is a bit creepy, though- Halloween? Nice work!

    Am I the only one that thinks the vintage ones look much better than the newer style of the 2000’s?

      You’re not alone. I think the current version looks like the mask from the Scream movies.
