Today In Disney History ~ June 20th
“If you can’t visit a Disney theme park, why not bring a special part of it to your home? This partnership between HGTV and Disney Parks makes that possible for lucky homeowners who receive a backyard makeover that will be the envy of the neighborhood. Whether it’s a magical Mickey Mouse pool, a topiary shaped like the family dog or a tree house inspired by a Disney movie, hanging out in the yard has never been this fun.”
My Yard Goes Disney ran for two seasons. During this time the show’s host hosted panels at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Season One had four episodes, Season Two had eleven episodes. The yard themes were based on Disney Resorts, Theme Parks and movies. In the the first season’s episodes several Mickey pools were built, a backyard train station was created, a backyard safari came to life, a pirate yard was created, and a classic character yard with a Chip and Dale treehouse was made as a Christmas surprise. In the second seasons episode’s a Blizzard Beach inspired yard was built, a Princess and Mini Golf play zone came to life, an underwater playground was created, a “basecamp” and Cars themed yards were unveiled, an Aulani inspired yard came to life, a Fort Wilderness camping inspired yard was built, a Hollywood Studios themed yard came to life and another Pirate themed yard was built.
