As Halloween approaches, we at Disney Parks thought it was a great time to have you show us your Halloween Disney Side. And what better way to do that, than with a contest!
Starting today and running through November 4, you will be able to upload your favorite Disney Parks-themed Halloween photos to enter for a chance to win a private “Midnight at the Haunted Mansion” party for you and three guests with a spooky overnight stay in Cinderella Castle. All of the details and information on how to enter can be found at DisneySideContest.com.
Photos can be themed to four categories: Home décor, food and beverage, pumpkin carving and costumes.
And each Monday this month, the Disney Parks Blog will feature tips for your photos from some spook-tastic Disney and celebrity experts.
This week, it’s home décor.
We caught up with decorating and design gurus Sabrina Soto and Michael Moloney at Disneyland park recently, getting some great “haunted” home décor tips from Disneyland Resort Enhancement Manager Chris Barnhill. Now, Sabrina and Michael are not just superstars of design. They also have amped-up their Halloween cred as the hosts of “The Great Halloween Fright Fight,” airing on ABC Tuesday, October 28, which spotlights Halloween-embracing homeowners who have turned their properties into macabre masterpieces.
Chris shared with Sabrina and Michael some simple tips for haunted home décor, based on the creepy creations he and his team conjure up for Halloween Time at Disneyland. They include some eerie eyes (a la the wallpaper in the traditional version of the Haunted Mansion) and two sinister treasures based on decorations seen inside the Haunted Mansion Holiday which is inspired by the classic animated film “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Those are great tips. I’m going to my craft store right now! Oh wait! I can’t win!
Oh well, YOU can; and that’s what counts!
Don’t forget, we want to see your most frightfully-fun Disney Parks-themed Halloween photos. Check out DisneySideContest.com to enter for a chance to win some eerie, scary prizes, including that private “Midnight at the Haunted Mansion” party for you and three guests with a spooky overnight stay in Cinderella Castle.
