Disney Unveils Artificial Grass Landscape at Magic Kingdom – by AlternaScapes :: Orlando, Florida
April 6, 2015
AlternaScapes is helping revamp one of the most renowned areas of Disney Parks’ Magic Kingdom. Located between the end of Main Street and Cinderella Castle, the Central Plaza is visited by thousands of enchanted fans each year on their way to see the legendary princess.
Exciting changes are planned for Central Plaza – landscaping renovations, sculpted gardens, additional pathways, expanded restaurant seating and even a special viewing area for fireworks and other performances.
Already in process, the multi-phase enhancement project is scheduled to be completed in 2015. Disney chose EasyTurf because it is the best synthetic turf on the market and AlternaScapes is proud to have sold and installed this job at Magic Kingdom.
Disney wanted to bring beauty and uniqueness to Central Plaza’s landscaping areas. Take a look at the pictures of the finished product.

Walt Disney World includes property that covers 27,258 acres (11,031 ha; 43 sq mi), in which it houses 27 themed resort hotels, 9 non–Disney hotels, four theme parks, two water parks, four golf courses, one nine-hole walking golf course for young golfers (no electric carts allowed), two themed miniature golf courses, one camping resort, one residential area, and additional recreational and entertainment venues. Magic Kingdom was the first and original theme park to open in the complex followed by Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which opened later throughout the 1980s and 1990s.*
More than 17 million people visit the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World each year. It is the world’s most popular theme park. “It is what people think about when they think of Disney World,” explains Deb Wills, founder of AllEars.Net. A Disney character parade cuts through the park and heads down Main Street, USA, every afternoon, and a fireworks spectacular lights up the sky many nights.**
