New artificial turf around the Mickey floral planter at the Disneyland Park entrance and the Haunted Mansion front lawn will be unveiled on Friday, September 2 when Halloween Time kicks off at the Anaheim theme park.
Disney has been slowly rolling out the artificial turf all over the park over past few weeks and months as part of a drought-fighting water conservation effort.
The high-end artificial turf used at Disneyland is harder to spot than the low-cost versions found in residential neighborhoods that look like synthetic green carpeting with visible seams. Disneyland uses eight different types of artificial turf with gray, brown and off-white blades intermittently woven in.
Recently, the lawn around the Storybook Land floral received the treatment over three days in July.
