The new Gardens of Wonder will comprise of 10 different theme-based gardens. They will be installed in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, and will feature 30 entirely new art pieces, kinetic Disney and Pixar sculptures which will “come to life” and celebrate nature and embody the diversity of popular Disney and Pixar characters and offer an enchanted promenade for our guests.

Each of these pieces has been imagined thanks to the expertise and creativity of our horticulture and entertainment teams and is produced by local craftsmen whose know-how has contributed to Disneyland Paris experience for many years. Inspired by various sources of influences: from windmills for children to the world of Salvador Dali, among other things – the 30 pieces of art will be installed in 10 different theme-based gardens and will represent a wide variety of Disney and Pixar Characters, from Princesses to villains. For example, the Garden of Asia will include sculptures of Baymax (Big Hero 6), Mushu (Mulan) and Sisu (Raya and the Last Dragon).
