According to the Disney Parks Blog, Michelle Giger Rohrmann manages the nursery where the flowers were grown.

She and her team realized with the parks temporarily closed, the lilies intended to decorate the parks for the spring could still spread joy.

The blog said the flowers were gifted to the Osceola Council on Aging and added to Meals on Wheels deliveries near Disney World.

“I’m glad that they are able to be enjoyed by these folks. I hope this will be a bright spot in their day,” Rohrmann said.

“To me, the lily is really symbolic of springtime – after a long, hard winter, the first thing to pop up is a lily. It’s a good representation of how we’ll come out of this together. We’ll pull through this. Better days are on their way.”
