HGTV’s My Yard Goes Disney-PHOTOS and Sweepstakes

Remember when we told you last October about the casting call for the upcoming HGTV show on Disney backyard makeovers? Well the show is now a series called “My Yard Goes Disney” and is about to premier on June 6! EDIT: Casting Calls are again on to appear on My Yard Goes Disney!Β 

Set your DVR’s and get ready to watch the magic as some very lucky families get the backyard a Disney fan could only dream of. Upcoming episodes feature such fun additions as an over-sized tea pot, a train track that goes around a yard, a sorcerer’s hat, an Animal Kingdom tribute and a Mickey-shaped pool inspired by Disney Cruise Line.

Here’s a look at the first episode from HGTV’s site:

My Yard Goes Disney
Mushroom seating area and family-tribute suflowers

Mushrooms become chairs and tables when the My Yard Goes Disney team transforms the Bradburns’ neglected backyard into the perfect spot for fun and relaxing. The yard also includes 200 feet of railroad track and giant sunflowers to honor special family memories.

HGTV My Yard Goes Disney Small World
This is just amazing - Small World in your yard! It'd make me want all the attractions I think!

Here are some photos of the Animal Kingdom safari-inspired backyard:

My Yard Goes Disney
From HGTV: "No safari is complete without a savannah-worthy vehicle. Behind the lion is a Jeep that's been converted into a kid-safe playspace. In the distance, water-spouting elephants provide a fun space to cool off."
