Dubai Miracle Garden breaks records with flowery Mickey Mouse tribute

The world’s largest natural flower garden, Dubai Miracle Garden is once more successful at leaving crowds speechless and amazed with a brand new floral structure. In honour of Disney’s most beloved character that will soon be celebrating its 90th anniversary, Dubai Miracle Garden showed the world a majestic flower sculpture of Mickey Mouse. This beautiful homage also celebrated the recent licensing deal established between Dubai Miracle Garden and The Walt Disney Company.

When addressing the new partnership, Abdel Naser Rahhal, creator and co-founder of Dubai Miracle Garden and vice chairman of Cityland Group, the developer of the botanical property said:

“We are very pleased to partner with The Walt Disney Company to bring their beloved Mickey Mouse to life through the wonderful medium of flowers.Dubai Miracle Garden’s imagination and creativity in coming up with novel and exciting floral displays will be a perfect complement to the appeal of classic Disney characters who will be revealed in amazing new displays in the future.”

Moreover, Chafic Najia, senior vice president and general manager of The Walt Disney Company Ltd, added:

“Mickey Mouse is one of the world’s most iconic and beloved characters, and we are proud to be able to celebrate such a unique touch point at Dubai Miracle Garden with UAE residents and visitors, and enable them to connect with Disney and our characters. We look forward to celebrating more local experiences for Disney fans in the UAE and across the Middle East region in the future.”

The 18-metre high tribute has earned the grand park a third Guinness World Record title, this time for the Tallest Topiary Sculpture (supported). Featuring approximately 100,000 plants and flowers (including White Petunia, Red Petunia, White Geranium, Yellow Viola, Zinnia Marigold and Green Alternanthera), the sculpture weighs almost 35 tons. In order to support the grand Mickey Mouse replica, designers created a 7-ton steel structure resting on a solid 50-ton foundation of reinforced concrete.

Sources also stated that Dubai Miracle Garden has further Disney characters planned for November when it reopens for the winter season. This unique and amazing attraction filled with flamboyant greenery is open from 9am to 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 11pm on Friday and Saturdays. Regular admission is AED45 per adult and AED35 per child (from 3-12 years). Entry is free for people with disabilities and children below two years of age.
