At the Disneyland Resort, there is more to our landscape design than good looks. With Southern California’s seemingly endless days of beautiful weather, we experience less rainfall than other parts of the country. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new ways to conserve water.

Our Horticulture team, with the help of Walt Disney Imagineering, designs landscapes that not only fit the theme of the area they will be planted in, but also include water-savvy plants. These plants have leaves that are small, waxy, thick, silvery or hairy to minimize water loss. Additionally, they are wide or deeply rooted to maximize water uptake.
