Touring the New Solar Facility at Walt Disney World #earthmonth

Re-post in case you missed it!

This morning I was invited to tour the new solar facility at Walt Disney World.  The panels at this new area have the capability to power two theme parks!  That’s pretty impressive!

The solar facility was built in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and solar developer Origis Energy USA. Disney environmental and horticulture experts have helped make more than 2/3 of the facility pollinator friendly with plant species that attract insects like butterflies and bees.  The site itself is amazing and I have some photos and videos below to share with you!

While I was there I got to sign a solar panel that will be displayed behind the scenes at Animal Kingdom! The tour was quite a learning experience and I’m thankful for the invitation from Disney! You can see more coverage on our Instagram page at themainstreetmouse!
