The most colourful and best smelling gardens in Dubai is finally opening for its seventh season today (Sunday November 4), and this time its joined by a list of classic Disney favourites, huge floral animals, a new dining experience and much more.
Dubai Miracle Garden is now in full bloom, and is open for all visitors to see its brand-new huge cat structures, three elephants that spout water and a turtle with its own private garden on its back.
Making a return is Disney’s iconic character Mickey Mouse, which was put up earlier this year for his 90th anniversary and broke a Guinness World Record for the Tallest Topiary Sculpture.
Now he’s joined by the rest of his cartoon friends just so he doesn’t get lonely, including Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy and those cheeky triplets Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
The colourful characters won’t be as tall or use as many flowers as Mickey, who stands at 18 metres tall and uses 100,000 plants and flowers, but they’ll be a sight to behold nonetheless.
The 72,000 sq m garden also features a new dining experience at the Floral Palace, where foodies can sit inside or out and dine among “millions of flowers”.
Dubai Miracle Garden now has 250 million flowers, with 70 different types, and 50 million plants to make up each of structures and buildings.
Tickets for adults are now priced at Dhs50, and Dhs40 for the little ones aged three to 12, while people of determination and kids under the age of three get in completely for free.
Other Dubai Miracle Garden Guinness World Records include the “Largest Vertical Garden in the World” and “Largest Floral Installation”.
