Why Are There No Bees At Disney World?

Bees, flies and other bugs at Disney World and in Orlando In Florida, insects are around throughout the year, but we seldom see any on the Disney grounds. This is because Disney is usually aggressive about getting rid of pests.
Is Disney home to bees?
You Will Not Be- Consider How the Walt Disney World Resort Recycles Its Gingerbread Displays During the holiday season, the are a beloved tradition at the. Many guests return year after year to experience and marvel at the magnificence of these culinary masterpieces.
But have you ever wondered what becomes of the gingerbread displays after the holiday season? I am aware of your eager anticipation. The solution is bees! “Ten years ago, while performing our annual gingerbread display cleaning, we observed that bees were attracted to the sugar left on the displays after deconstruction,” said Barry Stockwell, a Planned Work Specialist with Event Decorating Support.
“We brought the display pieces to our Disney tree farm and arranged them in our field so that bees could collect the sugar from the wooden structures.” It is only natural that we would look to nature for assistance at Walt Disney World, given Disney’s commitment to conservation and environmental stewardship.
Due to the global decline in bee populations, Disney has made it its mission to provide pollinators with more habitat and resources via pollinator-friendly gardens located throughout the property. And for the past ten years, we have surprised local bees with this sweet holiday gift. Now, thousands of local bees visit the displays annually to indulge in this sugary treat, which aids the dwindling bee population by keeping them well-nourished during the winter months when food sources are scarcer.
After the holiday season has concluded, the Walt Disney World Event Decorating Support team and Pastry Chefs begin the recycling process by removing gingerbread from the wooden structures used to construct gingerbread displays. After the gingerbread is removed, it is recycled for use in composites, leaving behind a wooden structure covered in sugar-based royal icing.
The team then disassembles the structure and transports it to the tree farm at Walt Disney World Resort. Then, it is up to the bees to find and collect the sugar-coated wooden pieces. The wooden pieces are then power-washed with hot water, and the display is stored until the next holiday season. Check out the beginning to end of the process on the Disney Parks TikTok.
What happens to the Gingerbread Houses will astound you. This story gets even sweeter! The honeybees who visit the gingerbread displays hail from Central Florida. Honey bees can travel approximately two miles in search of nectar, pollen, and in this case, sugar.
- The Conservation Manager for Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment, Zak Gezon, remarked.
- Eeping the bees well-fed enables local farmers to harvest honey for sale in markets or to contribute to honey blends that are sold wholesale to large companies for use in culinary creations, including gingerbread.
Be on the lookout for these bees as they fly across our parks and resorts collecting nectar, sugar, and pollinating the flowers.

The food produced is organic because no chemicals were used. There is more to the video; it is interesting to see all the environmentally friendly ways Disneyland Paris uses its resources to produce healthier and fresher vegetables, local honey (while pollinating the plants), and more.
Here are some photographs we took of the Disneyland Paris honey. Pooh is featured on the label’s front. And a look at the label’s reverse side. It is not always for sale, but when it is, I purchase it for myself and as gifts. Always impressive is the amount of consideration Disneyland Paris puts into its environmental practices.
Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director for Disney Parks, writes in the Disney Parks Blog, “Disneyland Paris is home to a beautifully balanced ecosystem.”
Exist serpents at Disney World?
Wildlife at Disney World, courtesy of KtP It is a given that you will observe wildlife at Disney World. You may encounter alligators, snakes, and other animals while on vacation. They are a component of theme parks and attractions, in particular. However, they lurk in other locations, such as resorts and the Seven Seas Lagoon.
Disney’s Walk Around the World bricks will be destroyed, but there will be a take-home brick option. As improvements are made to the resort’s entrances and walkways, the personalized Walk Around the World bricks near Magic Kingdom park and the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC) will soon be removed to make room for the future.
Originally, the bricks were scheduled to be on display until 2011. Due to the fact that the bricks were not designed to be removed individually, guests who purchase them will not be able to take their brick home with them. Bricks will be removed as the resort installs new walkways, additional metal detectors and bag screening stations, and remodels tram loading and unloading areas.
Beginning with those in front of Magic Kingdom park and at the TTC, all personalized bricks will be removed in stages. There are currently no plans to remove the Disneyland versions of these bricks.
