Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Celebrates Lunar New Year

By Rachel Green, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Last week, just in time for Chinese New Year, we shared some exciting news from Shanghai Disney Resort and its Garden of the Twelve Friends—a whimsical area of the theme park that recasts twelve favorite Disney and Disney•Pixar characters as members of the Chinese zodiac. “Jolly Holiday” lambs from Disney’s "Mary Poppins" were selected in honor of the Year of the Sheep. The Garden of the Twelve Friends will feature a garden wall decorated with flowering vines and colorful mosaic vignettes created in collaboration with local Chinese artists and craftsmen, and will resemble a classic Chinese garden where families can gather and relax together.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Takes Steps Towards an Eco-Friendly Future

By Rachel Green, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Last week, the Disneyland Resort was honored with a Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award, California’s highest environmental honor, for waste-reduction efforts. The program distinguishes organizations that are leaders in environmental stewardship and that make notable efforts to conserve California’s natural resources. Over the last 10 years, the Disneyland Resort has doubled the amount of waste diverted from landfills, and is working toward the long-term goal of achieving Zero Waste—a distinction already awarded to Circle D Corral at Disneyland park. In addition to recycling paper, cardboard, plastics and metal, Circle D Corral composts all animal waste, hand towels, laundry lint and coffee grounds from Disneyland Resort restaurants.
