They work mostly at night but keep the park looking fresh by providing some of its most important details, the landscape and seasonal decor. Disneyland’s Horticulture and Resort Enhancement team is definitely the under-sung heroes of the resort.

From carefully manicured flowers on Main Street, U.S.A., to desert plants in Cars Land, the landscape is part of the detail that tells the “story” of each land in the parks. More than 800 species of plants indigenous to 40 nations grow at the Disneyland Resort, making it one of the most extensive and diverse botanical locales in the western United States. The Horticulture and Resort Enhancement team manages the landscape plus the annual addition of seasonal décor for Halloween and Holidays.

The 2014 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is still two weeks away, but already Disney is moving pieces into place. The horticulture team has been busy putting the giant Flower Quilts together and the festival team has been working on booths and displays across the park.

Yesterday I took a nice stroll through the park and captured some of their preparations for a fun look behind the process of assembling a great show for guests.
