Disneyland Volunteers to Build Giant Maleficent Dragon for Canstruction Event in Orange County

Disney engineers can make art out of anything and canned goods are no exception.  This year Disneyland Resort’s Canstruction team, made up of Disney designers and engineers, will create an amazing 10-foot-tall Maleficent piece for this years Canstruction Orange County art exhibit.   The Disney team has chosen Maleficent to commemorate the return of Fantasmic to Disneyland.

What is Canstruction?   According to their website Canstruction:

“combines the fun of a design-build competition with an ingenious way to help feed hungry people. Local prominent architectural, engineering, planning, and design firms, and students mentored by these professionals, create phenomenal structures built entirely out of canned food. The structures go on view to the public at South Coast Plaza (in conjunction with the Festival of Children), John Wayne Airport, and ARTIC throughout the month of September.”

This year marks the 10th anniversary for the event.  The Disney team has been participating since the beginning in 2008.
