All of us are so excited that we’re about to embark on another season of HGTV’s My Yard Goes Disney. Here’s the best news – we have eleven brand new episodes this year – and it all starts tonight!
You’ll be meeting the Morales family – Geo, Gwen, Kayla and Emma. Like most of us, they love all things Disney. But, with two girls ages 5 and 3, is it any wonder that they love the Disney Princesses? So much, in fact, that young Kayla told the HGTV designers exactly what she wanted in her backyard. So the designers went to work and created a spectacular space, with a Fantasyland-inspired village and a one-of-a-kind Castle known to belong to a favorite princess who might be looking for a missing slipper…
Another favorite spot for the Morales family is our very own Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course. A similar course ends up in their yard, too. (When you watch the episode, be on the lookout for my friend Goofy. He showed up while we were filming, and tried to give Emma some “how to golf” pointers. I’m told that the cast members over there are still trying to find the 46 missing golf balls he used to demonstrate his “fool-proof hole-in-one technique”…)
Anyway…the end result? Their backyard – just like Walt Disney World Resort – became a place where a couple of little princesses’ dreams come true. Just look!
Now, I’ve told all of you that I have the best job at Disney…and because of this season of My Yard Goes Disney, it’s even better than before! I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with a dozen wonderful families all over the Walt Disney World Resort, and at the Disneyland Resort as well. We travelled to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawai’i…and two lucky families were aboard our brand new Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy. All of them now have spectacular new backyards inspired by these magical places, and we can’t wait to share them with you!
Speaking of Aulani…next week, I’ll be writing to you from that beautiful spot in paradise, as I help celebrate the Magic of Healthy Living with some of our Disney Channel friends. Until then, enjoy tonight’s show at 8 p.m. Eastern time on HGTV.
