The lesson is included in the garden’s usual entrance fee of Dh50 for adults and Dh40 for kids 12 years and below, free for people with disabilities and children below 2 years of age – to be noted there are limited spaces available for this event).

Guests are invited to register at 9 am at the garden’s VIP entrance, with the lesson starting at 9.30 am promptly. They are required to bring their own mat and outfits. For children attending under 8 years of age, or not wanting to participate in the yoga lesson, there will be a number of fun activities provided by dairy company Arla Foods – including a Mickey & Friends themed face painting station, a ball pit, colouring station, and an educational healthy food spinning wheel. Arla Foods will also host a sampling stand at the event, offering guests a range of refreshments.

Once the lesson finishes, guests are able to enjoy the gardens’ 72,000 sqm space of magnificent sculptures and designs, including Disney Avenue’s magnificent floral structures based on the Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck; and Huey, Dewey, and Louie – weighing an average of five tons each, with least 30,000 flowers and plants used for each character. The opening of the garden’s Disney Avenue follows the recent unveiling of an 18-metre floral structure of Mickey Mouse to celebrate the iconic character’s 90th anniversary, which earned Dubai Miracle Garden its third Guinness World Record.
