First Mobile Statues Added to Gardens of Wonder in Disneyland Paris for 30th Anniversary

Ten “Gardens of Wonder” are coming to Disneyland Paris to celebrate the park’s 30th anniversary later this year. Each garden will have a different theme, and in total there will be thirty abstract mobile statues representing different Disney characters. Statues have been added to the first four gardens, which surround Sleeping Beauty Castle at the center of the park.

DLP Report shared photos and videos of the new statues on Twitter. Here is Maleficent, right in front of the castle, in the villains garden.

The Ursula statue has her surrounded by green strips of metal representing water, seaweed, and Flotsam and Jetsam.

The Jafar statue just uses his face, instead of his full body, with his snake-shaped staff sticking out of the top. Watch DLP Report’s video below.

Near Casey’s Corner is a garden with Dumbo, Cheshire Cat, and Winnie the Pooh characters. The base of the Dumbo mobile has circus stripes, and the crows from the film circle around Dumbo and Timothy Q. Mouse.

Winnie the Pooh and Tigger are in an umbrella floating on circles of metal water. Tigger’s holding a kite and birds fly around them.

In a space-themed garden is this statue of Stitch hanging off a palm tree. The base resembles a beach with surfboards, and is surrounded by water-like pieces.

Next to Stitch is a mobile of Eve from “WALL-E.” She spins opposite Earth above a silvery ball.

Another space-themed mobile features three of the green aliens from the “Toy Story” franchise spinning around a gold pole in their spaceships.

None of the mobiles are currently operating, but we’ll definitely see them in action on March 6, when the celebration officially begins.

The final garden that has been set up is water-themed. Ariel is surrounded by water-like pieces and fish on sticks.

Nemo, Marlin, and Dory peek out of a purple anemone on this mobile statue. It is surrounded by seaweed pieces and other fish.

Finally, there is a Moana-themed statue that draws inspiration more from her sailing boat, with the hear of Te Fiti carved into the sails and a swirl of water below it.

Take a look at the Cinderella statue, which Cast Members got to preview in January, and some of the statues when they were under construction.
