    Design Notes

    Mickey Melons

    Leave it to the Epcot science team at WDW Resort in Florida to come up with fresh produce shaped like Mickey Mouse. The newest: Mickey melons, just in time for summer.

    At the Land greenhouse at Epcont, experts shape young watermellons in special molds until the fruit forms the familiar shape of famous Mickey. The watermelons, which can be seen on the "Living with the Land" boat ride through the greenhouses, will soon be offered as a treat to guests.

    Mickey-shaped cucumbers are already being served on salads at Epcot, and Mickey pumkins are in the works.

    This was in the gardening section of the Buffalo News 6/18/04 Buffalo NY :mickey:

    I wish I could go back sooner, too!! (Can't wait to pay 2x as much for a melon now that it has "ears")
