Greetings from California! I’m writing today’s Disney Parks Blog entry from a room overlooking the brand-new water slides at the Disneyland Hotel. Yes, I’m at the Disneyland Resort filming. Could there be something Disneyland-inspired coming soon to “My Yard Goes Disney?” I’ll never tell…
Now, onto this week’s episode. It’s definitely a favorite, based on a classic attraction. Ready for a not-so-subtle hint? Okay, here we go, “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s yard for me!” You guessed it: A Pirates of the Caribbean-themed yard. I think even Captain Jack Sparrow would be proud!
Tonight, you’ll meet the Delaney Family. Patty and Mike are personable, energetic parents with three kids who love Pirates of the Caribbean. We spent a wonderful day filming at Magic Kingdom Park with this enthusiastic family and needless to say, it was a pirate-filled experience. And, those Caribbean plunderers weren’t the only pirates who were around that day – you might catch a glimpse of Peter Pan and his pirate nemesis. (On a side note: Is it your dream to ride the attraction a dozen times in one day? If so, then I did it for you on this film shoot!).
Taking inspiration from our Imagineers, the HGTV Designers created a spectacular space for this terrific family. The yard is amazing, from very cool water spaces to an over the top, one-of-a-kind, custom-built pirate ship. See it take shape on “My Yard Goes Disney,” tonight on HGTV at 8 p.m.
Check out the sneak peek:
I’ll see you again right here, next Monday. Now, I wonder if I have enough time to try out the new Monorail-themed waterslide before our first filming today.
