Did You Know Disney Uses Melted Ice for Sidewalk Water Art?

Just when we think Disney has thought of everything, they go and surprise us again! Even though April (Earth Month) is coming to a close, Disney is still sharing impressive ways they are conserving and reusing right down to what seem like the simplest of things. Instead of using more water, Disney actually reuses melted ice for such things as sidewalk water art! Check out the details below.


As shared via Disney Parks YouTube: “The Disneyland Resort is always looking for ways to conserve precious resources, especially water. In this episode of Field Notes, we will learn how cast members including Patrick and Kyle from the Outdoor Ventures team were inspired to save water in their work location.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
