The Disneyland Resort celebrates Earth Month each year by providing fun and interactive ways for children and families to learn the importance of preserving the environment – at the Resort and in our local community.
Earlier this month, cast members from around the Resort created treasures of “trash” from recyclable materials found in their work locations during the Environmentality Art Challenge. The top eight creations were voted upon by cast members and guests. The winning masterpiece, “Junkle Cruise,” was created by the Facilities Manufacturing Animation team.
On Earth Day, April 22, guests helped release 70,000 ladybugs at the Downtown Disney District, as they learned about environmentally beneficial insects such as ladybugs and bees. And in Disney California Adventure park, guests played games, measured their own footprint and learned about native plants.
Locally, Disneyland Resort donated and planted two trees at Edison Elementary School in Anaheim in honor of Arbor Day. And, children from Boys and Girls Clubs of Anaheim, Garden Grove and Central Orange Coast enjoyed a private movie screening of the DisneyNature film “Born in China” at AMC Downtown Disney with complimentary popcorn and drinks in celebration of Earth Day.
