It's the most wonderful time of the year. No, not that. Dubai Miracle Garden is back for the seventh year.
It’s the brightest and best-smelling garden in the city and, this time, it’s joined by a list of classic Disney favourites, huge floral animals, a new dining experience and much more. The 72,000 sq m Dubai Miracle Garden has 250 million flowers, with 70 different types, and 50 million plants to make up each of structures and buildings.
Visitors can 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 at 18 metres.
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.
