Can You Find EPS Foam in Disneyland or Disney World?

Fun in Disney is a given. Fun with Foam in Disney is often hidden in plain sight.

As you can imagine, using EPS foam, a strong, versatile, lightweight building material, is perfect for floats and as sculpting material for characters. In various stage and experience sets it is often the way to go. EPS foam can be transformed into anything and can create any type of environment. It is the perfect material of choice for a place where your imagination runs wild!

Pair its lightweight properties with a creative mind and talented hands and EPS can quickly transform any space into a magical wonderland and bring colorful characters to life. As Mr. Disney himself said, “If you can dream it, you can do it!”

Although we do not have the inside scoop with Disney and what was made with EPS versus other materials, we thought it would be fun to explore the internet seeking ways EPS could have been used in building or sculpting applications. We think you’ll find that the possibilities really are endless!

In our online travels we found several story blogs that feature floats constructed out of EPS. It might even inspire you to want to build your own. We found a site for that! Check it out here.
