Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort

Valentine Flowers at Disneyland Resort

posted on February 8th, 2011 by Michele Himmelberg, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort


Flowers or candy? It’s the great Valentine’s Day decision.

I adore chocolate, but on Valentine’s Day I always prefer flowers. That’s why I get to tell you about the new floral displays at the Disneyland Resort this month. (My colleagues will tell you all about sweet treats at the Resort later this week.)

The horticulture team is dressing up Disneyland park with beautiful yellow tulips, pink pansies, red azaleas and more. The floral displays include Valentine-sculpted hearts in the planters at Town Square. The hearts are reminiscent of Victorian Valentine cards, as some have a lace pattern and others have stained-glass highlights.

Here’s what to look for around the park:

At Town Square: pink tulips near the flagpole, yellow tulips and pink pansies in the lawns, pink and red azaleas in the bench planters, and needlepoint ivy climbing up the two-foot high Valentine-sculpted hearts.

At the Hub, on Main Street, U.S.A.: pink double-tulips at the Partner’s Statue; pink, yellow and white tulips with a daffodil mix; and baskets with shades of pink and yellow.

Minnie’s House in Mickey’s Toontown: A three-foot tall Valentine heart sculpture appears to be growing straight up through Minnie’s garden on her front lawn, and it’s surrounded by pink and red azaleas.

If you’re not visiting the parks this month, the horticulture team does amazing work throughout the year with holiday-themed décor, exquisite topiaries and the ever-changing “Floral Mickey” at the entrance to Disneyland park.

Here’s a quick look at some of the beautiful flowers and gardens that celebrate Valentine’s Day and add a festive touch to the Disneyland Resort.

Which gardens do you enjoy seeing at the Disneyland Resort?

I absolutely adore the heart sculpture in Minnie’s Garden! I wish there was a way I could just pop in to see it in person!!! I also appreciate the fact that the decorations match the land that they are in! Great job, Horticultural Team!!!! Two Mickey-size gloved thumbs up! :D

I love when there are tulips around the park. They make the prettiest photos. I think I will just have to come up there on Thursday and Friday to see them.

My hubby and I literally just got home from spending the past 2 days at Disneyland. We went to celebrate our 25th anniversary and I was so excited to see these Valentine decorations on Main Street. Each one was different. We had one of the photographers come take a picture of us and she moved us to a couple to try out some ideas she had. We had so much fun!!!!

Hi Michele,
Could you tell me the name of the music piece that is playing in the background of the video? I love it! When I hear it, it reminds me of the good ol’ Main Street U.S.A.! Thank you!

Yay! It’s the first time in my 50 years that I’m going to be able to see the park during Valentines.
