    Pulling our daughter out of school to come to the World in Feb. For homework , she has been asked to find examples of energy conservation at the parks, take photos of them and then make a presentation to her class upon her return. Any ideas? Thanks

    Hi Sarah!

    That's a great idea for an assignment for your daughter to take on while at Walt Disney World.  Walt Disney World, as you can imagine, uses a ton of energy every day!  While much of the energy conservation examples are located out of sight of guests, there are a few that you'll be able to see throughout the properties.

    1.  Solar panels on Ellen's Energy Adventure should be easy to spot and photograph.

    2.  Energy efficient light bulbs are installed throughout the property, and should be easy to find as well.

    3.  Air conditioners are also on energy efficient settings, you should be able to locate them easily inside a restaurant, or in your hotel room.

    4.  Towels at Walt Disney World resort hotels are only replaced if a guest requests it.  By leaving your towel hanging, you let 'mousekeeping' know that you'd like to reuse your towel (saving TONS of energy each and every day!)


    I'd also like to guide you over to zannaland.com.  She has a great post about Walt Disney World's green business model.  Just type energy conservation into the search bar and the article titled "Just How 'Green' is Walt Disney World" will pop up. 

    If you have any questions while you are on vacation, ask a Cast Member.  They'll be happy to help!

    Have a magical vacation!
