Halloween How-To: Carve Pumpkins Like A Disney Pro

posted on October 23rd, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager


Lon Smart, a Creative Concept Artist for Disney Parks, has a very cool job this time of year. He gets to design a lot of the pumpkins you see on Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

We recently visited with Lon to get some of his go-to carving tricks, which include: using a dry erase marker to draw (and easily erase mistakes) on your pumpkin, choosing items like bike lights or glow sticks to light a pumpkin, and giving a pumpkin extra character by adding paint or accessories.

Check out more of his tips below.

Lon also shared some downloadable templates you can cut out and use to create your own expressive pumpkin. Check those out below.

Halloween is still a few days away, but guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios can experience a Halloween thrill 365 days a year at the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

That’s because the storyline of The Twilight Zone – Tower of Terror attraction is set on Halloween night – October 31, 1939, when five passengers mysteriously disappeared in the hotel’s elevator.

This attraction looks even eerier at night. Do you prefer to ride during the day or after the lights go down?
