Throughout March, we are paying tribute to Women’s History Month in a variety of ways at the Disneyland Resort, celebrating women and their inspiring contributions through art, song, food and stories.
Our first female star is none other than Minnie Mouse, who for the first time, has her own floral display at the main entrance of Disneyland park! The creation of Floral Minnie was led by Disneyland Resort Horticulture Specialist Stacy Wise and a team of 13 horticulturists. Minnie’s iconic bow consists of 750 individual Nemesia flowers, and the display overall has 1,900 individual plants, including pansies, violas and petunias. And her eyelashes are adorable!
Additionally, the Downtown Disney District brings several special offerings throughout Women’s History Month!
Chalk muralist Marcella Swett is returning to the Downtown Disney District! If you saw Marci’s wonderful work during Celebrate Soulfully as part of Black History Month in Feb., you know her pieces are powerful and spectacular. From March 15-31, 2022, she will create two different designs honoring women, located near the Downtown Disney LIVE! stage. Swett, a senior production artisan with Disney Live Entertainment, is an award-winning visual artist and native Southern Californian whose career has spanned more than three decades.
Sprinkles is introducing their first Female Chef Series for Women’s History Month! Launching with Dark Chocolate Passion Fruit, this decadent dark chocolate cake filled with a delicious passion fruit curd was crafted by the Chef Brooke Williamson. As part of the series, Sprinkles is also making a donation to the Step Up Network to help empower young women with the skills and resources to reach their full potential. Dark Chocolate Passion Fruit will be baking until March 13.
Ballast Point Brewing Co. is also paying homage to famous female chefs with special menu items inspired by these chefs who represent different eras, cuisines and talents that pushed boundaries and paved new ways in the culinary world.
Lovepop is featuring a unique assortment of empowering 3D greeting cards with phrases such as “Stronger Together” and “Girl Power,” and a pop-up card of Star Wars’ Princess Leia.
