    Exclamation The Fab 5 Go Abstract at the Disneyland Resort

    The Disneyland resort is celebrating the 5 Fav with a new abstract art installation:

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse having a picnic in a park, Donald Duck chasing his hat in the summer breeze, Goofy slipping while eating his ice cream and some fun summer icons. The artwork styling was pulled from the series, “A Mickey Mouse Cartoon.”

    We decided to celebrate our “Fab 5” as the core characters for this overlay. Mickey Mouse had a big year with his birthday, so we thought it was appropriate to continue celebrating him and his friends. Their poses are inspired by their personalities.

    The installation is designed with the spirit of discovery in mind and is meant to be interactive. When you approach the planters, you see elements of each character randomly placed about; but as you shift your perspective, you begin to see the image as a whole. We really want our guests to have fun in search of that discovery moment! For those who have a challenge finding that right perspective, we have “stand here” markers on the ground at each planter. The markers are Mickey Mouse’s shoe print.

    Each planter brings bright colors and textures to support the scene, such as strong reds and yellows for Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, sunflowers for Donald Duck, daisies for Daisy Duck and wild Gomphrena around Goofy. Pluto, Chip and Dale have Lions Tail for height and Carex grasses to play upon the idea of Pluto protecting his yard from the pesky mischief-makers, Chip ‘n Dale. A variety of topiaries were inspired by cartoons, distinctively-shaped in spirals, globes, cones, cubes and pyramids.

    Each season, the Downtown Disney District surprises and delights visitors with innovative, eye-catching visuals. Keep a look-out this fall, when more even more surprises pop-up in the planters!
