Dubai Miracle Garden is usually open from October to April each year. It is closed from May to September due to high temperatures (averaging 40 °C), which is not conducive to admiring the flowers.

For the summer period, the garden goes into seasonal reconstruction mode, after which new floral themes appear here, which are called the new season. Every time this new season arrives, visitors are always in for a big surprise. The flower garden is transformed to such an extent that in each new season, visitors cannot believe that they have already been here.

The flowers are maintained by reusing treated wastewater through drip irrigation with an average volume of 750,000 liters of water per day. According to representatives of the Dubai Miracle Garden, the Dubai Municipality diverts the city's wastewater and sends it directly to the garden. The garden filters the water again and turns it into high quality water for use in the garden. The garden is watered only after closing for the night.

Dubai Miracle Garden in the Guinness Book of Records

A Disney Avenue was created in the garden, made up of 9 Disney characters, and they were all made up of flowers and shrubs. Each of these characters was as huge as the previously created Mickey Mouse character, and some even bigger than the previous one. Disney characters included Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto and the triplets (i.e. Huey, Dewey and Louie). Goofy was the biggest of all. This entire avenue was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the largest topiary.
