Behind the Scenes: Larger-Than-Life Halloween Pumpkins at Disneyland Park

posted on October 10th, 2011 by Erin Glover, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort

As you enter Disneyland park during Halloween Time, you’re greeted by oversized Halloween pumpkins in the shape of some of your favorite Disney characters. Since it’s not easy to find a Pluto-shaped pumpkin growing in the patch, it’s up to the Disneyland Resort Creative Development team to work a little magic. In this video, we went behind the scenes with “Pumpkin King” Brian D. Sandahl, Senior Designer for Disney Entertainment Creative Development, as he prepared these and other Halloween Time decorations for their debut last month.

Will they ever do a Nightmare Before Christmas redecorate at the Haunted Mansion in Walt Disney World?? I’d love to see that, but not albe to fly cross country with my 5 children from Virginia.
