Happy Earth Day!

posted on April 22nd, 2010 by Betsy Sanchez, Manager of Media Relations, Disneyland Resort


Today the Disneyland Resort celebrates the 40th Anniversary of this very special day.

This morning, we were joined by local school children who helped us release thousands of ladybugs into our landscape in a bug’s land at Disney’s California Adventure park. The experience taught students about the advantages of beneficial bugs and how they seek out pests in the landscape, reducing the need for pesticides. Over the course of the day, we will have released more than 140,000 beneficial insects. While we release beneficial insects throughout the year, on Earth Day we also wanted to share the experience with these students to help them understand how they can also help the environment. Check back on the Disney Parks Blog to see photos from the event.

Like many companies, the Disneyland Resort is focused on efforts to protect our planet. Have you ever wondered what steps the Disneyland Resort takes to be “green?” Check out the video below to find out.

Wow! I think it’s awesome that Disneyland is using more environmentally friendly ways to run the parks.

Since the Disney resorts are visited by so many guests, it’s good to know they are running in a clean way.

What a wonderful, considerate to mother earth, innovative way that the Disney parks have organized things to be so earth & environment friendly!! We need Disney Representatives to solicit to Washington DC to be Ambassador’s to this Nation, Representatives of good practice and an example for all the world over. I feel proud of Disney for being so inventive and actionable on conservation for all of us and our future generations. Way to go Disney!!! Walt is shining down on you and shaking his head in agreement :)
