Mickey Mouse has broken a record in the Guinness World Records for world’s largest topiary display! The iconic Disney display was created in a collaboration between The Walt Disney Company and the Dubai Miracle Garden in Abu Dabi using an array of flowers and greenery.
New record: Tallest topiary sculpture (supported). Dubai @dubaimiraclegarden in UAE have created this 18.06 m (59 ft 3 in) tall Mickey Mouse to celebrate their licensing partnership with The Walt @disney Company 🌺🌸🌼 The sculpture was created using a blooming colourful array of almost 1,000 different plants and flowers (including white petunia, red petunia, white geranium, yellow viola, zinnia marigold and green alternanthera). The sculpture weighs around 35 tons and is supported by a four-ton steel structure with a concrete foundation of 50 tons (45,359.2 kg) of reinforced concrete. Park visitors can expect to see more Disney characters in the near future. ______________________________ #mickeymouse #dubai #dubaimiraclegarden #guinnessworldrecords #officiallyamazing #flowers #topiary #uae #disney
