To be honest, I always thought those famous Mickey-shaped pumpkins were fake (and some are) until I found out that Disney Has A Secret Greenhouse Where They Grow The Mickey-Shaped Pumpkins.
Now, I need one!
According to the Disney Parks website, Living with the Land is an attraction located in Future World at Epcot where guests can see these magical pumpkins.
“Discover a cornucopia of fruits and veggies from around the world—some modified to jaw-dropping effect. Feast your eyes on 9-pound lemons, Mickey-shaped pumpkins and more. Glimpse live eels, tilapia, catfish and freshwater shrimp in our fish farm.”
Apparently the Mickey-Shaped pumpkins are made with some special care by growing in special molds that are hung throughout the facility so that they take that special shape.
You can actually watch how they are made in the video below. It’s quite cool. I mean, magical!
Neat right? I bet you’ll never look at a pumpkin the same way again! Now all I need to know is where can I get one?!
