Music Garden Melodies Playground
Location: Along the Imagination Walkway between Future World and World Showcase
Hum your favorite tune on the way to a rockin’ fun zone that’s as sweet as nectar!
Starring Disney’s “Fab Five” topiaries, including bandleader Mickey Mouse and his fellow members Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck, this outdoor wonderland is filled with hands-on amusement and even lights up after dark.
Children can express their creativity by playing instruments like drums, chimes and xylophones—and tap into their adventurous side by tackling state-of-the-art net climbers. Music-themed plants also add a clever touch to this sonic scene.
