A Holiday Trick or a Halloween Treat at Disneyland Park?

Do you or any of your neighbors decorate your houses for Halloween? Or do you know someone who does? I’m talking something so spook-tacular that you become the talk of the neighborhood. One of my close friends transforms the entire front of his house into a ghoulish delight almost every year, featuring everything from a headless horseman coach to a haunted graveyard with life-like – or I guess you could say “dead”ly – headstones and even a pumpkin patch.

Item in the New Line of Halloween-Themed Collectibles Available at Disney Parks this September

So now that I’ve got you thinking about what you can do to decorate your homes this year … ask yourself, how can you add a little Disney magic to your own holiday décor, making you the talk of the town? Need a little help? This year, the ever-popular character pumpkin heads that sit atop the main entrance to Disneyland park have inspired a new line of Halloween-themed collectibles, set to debut September 17. Entertainment artists and designers Brian Sandahl and Tim Wollweber have a knack for creating the incredible and this year is no different. Brian and Tim have gone back to the drawing board, creating pumpkin heads in the shape of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto, and a sled-full of nightmarish holiday treats reminiscent of displays that come alive daily in the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction.

There’s a little something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for something festive and fun or nightmarishly frightful, we have skull wreaths, pumpkin candelabras and even a sculpture that is sure to be the perfect “gift” and addition to your collection.

Take an in-depth look at these new releases and the back-story about how these artists make the magic come alive on ArtofDisneyParks.com. And if you are in the mood to start decorating early, stop by the Disneyana Shop on September 17 from 9–11 a.m. and meet these “spirited” individuals who are sure to “haunt” your holiday season.
