Here’s how he and his team decorate the Resort for Halloween. You’re sure to pick up a new idea for this year or the next.

If you’d like to see more behind-the-scenes video showing how we decorate for Halloween, check out an earlier post yesterday about the giant pumpkins on Main Street., U.S.A., and at the entrance to Disneyland park.
