Everything Disney coming up flowers

by Julia Hart A spring break band trip to Disneyland during her junior year at Sunnyside High School made working in the Disney World franchise an absolute ‘must do’ for Lizze Sustaita of Sunnyside. A nine-month internship in 2013-14 with the Walt Disney Company at Disneyworld in Orlando, Fla. cemented Sustaita’s belief that Disneyland and Disney World parks are the “happiest places in the world.” While working in an all-Disney environment, Sustaita gained an appreciation for the park’s lively and colorful gardens and especially for the finely detailed topiaries. Here are a few of her favorite topiary displays.
