Disney Floral used to be located in the Disney Event Group building on Live Oak Lane, so they weren't near any horticultural/landscaping buildings on property. I feel for all those who lost their jobs.

They are all very underwhelming. Are there better offerings available from in-room dining?

I never thought they were worth it at any price.

They have the shipping/delivery charge added on top of the prices. This junk food box has contents worth $20 at best, add on another $10 for the cheap bag and you've got $30 plus markup.

Then go and do it yourself. The whole basket probably costs $40-50. Then you need to pay someone to build them and delivery them. Then you need profit.

Remember when Disney outsourced IT and made Orlando people train their replacements?

A Dollar Store shopping bag with a sleeve of Oreos and a few other tidbits for $99. Magical. Disney is still getting their cut. Except now, they don't have to lift a finger to get it.

This is an odd one to me considering how much golf built part of WDW's image at one point.

I don't know for sure, but I'm 98.8% sure that Disney Floral was it's own thing, outside of Horticultural/Landscaping. Living with the Land is probably it's own thing or tied into Horticultural.

note2001Jun 06, 2023

Does anyone know if Floral was a part of Horticultural / Landscaping, and also if Living with the land is a part of that same department?

TheMaxReboJun 06, 2023

probably just didn't get used enough to justify having a group and dedicated employees for it Makes it more efficient to outsource it to a third part that already has existing staff, etc. anyway
