Snow in Florida? That's the idea behind My Yard Goes Disney's latest project. HGTV's design team, with inspiration from Disney's Blizzard Beach, are turning the Thompson's backyard into a winter wonderland. From the icy blue slide and floating 'icebergs' in the family's new pool, to the snowy sand castle, the Thompsons will be chillin' in their dream yard with two active boys. Plus, host Brandon Johnson and the crew are installing a Blizzard Beach-style snack bar and a ski lodge stove to help mom and dad entertain family and friends.
The Morales' daughters have all of their princess dreams come true as HGTV's designers turn one little girl's drawings for a Disney-inspired backyard into a reality. Host Brandon Johnson and the build team creates a Snow White-style village, a backyard model train set that Walt himself would have loved and add a Cinderella-style dollhouse all the way from England. Mom and Dad get the royal treatment, too, with an extended entertainment area and a mini golf course reminiscent of Disney's Fantasia Gardens.
Dive in for a great adventure 'Under the Sea' with the Castro family. Host Brandon Johnson brings his HGTV crew to the Castro home to create an underwater playland for two little mermaids, complete with a a new rock slide and a huge King Triton mural. In a My Yard Goes Disney, our designers create an underground viewing window so mom and dad can watch as their daughters swim and play. Plus, the family gets their own Caribbean style dining area and a pink clamshell cabana, inspired by Ariel's Undersea Adventure at Disneyland Resort's California Adventure park.
My Yard Goes Disney creates an adventure-themed backyard inspired by the fun at Disney's Animal Kingdom. The Krantz family's unfinished treehouse is turned into base camp with kid-friendly climbing net and an amazing zipline with twists and turns around the yard. The zipline has an incredible finish with a splash ending in a new pool. Plus, for the wanna-be paleontologist, the backyard gets a new dinosaur digging sand pit.
Get your inner science geek on as HGTV's My Yard Goes Disney crew creates an educational backyard inspired by Disney's Epcot. The Trautwein family loves all things scientific. Brandon Johnson and crew aim to please with a geodesic greenhouse in the backyard, featuring hydroponic plants just like the plants at Disney World's The Land. That's not all, there's a Mickey Mouse shaped splash fountain, a butterfly garden and an amazing bike that flies through the air.
Rev up your engines for a magical backyard transformation as the Richeson's Merritt Island yard is transformed into a Radiator Springs-inspired racetrack! HGTV's design team is taking a cue from Carsland at Disney's California Adventure Park and giving some fun loving boys a chance to burn some rubber. The My Yard Goes Disney pit crew will design a racetrack big enough for two race cars to race side-by-side. Plus, what racetrack would be complete without a full service garage? And, when the boys are ready for a pit stop they can cool off in their geyser and cactus fountains. Buckle up! This is one ride you won't want to miss.
A bit of Hawaiian magic is coming to the Green's backyard in Merritt Island, Fla. The HGTV design team is taking inspiration from Disney's Aulani Resort and Spa on the island of Oahu, giving this surfing family a tropical destination in their own yard. From a pool and spray fountain, to a custom backyard surf shop, this family will spend their hot summer days in style. The family can spend cool nights sharing stories around their new firepit. For a final magical touch, the build team hid mythical Menehune characters around the yard to remind the family of their trip to the Aulani Resort.
Head down to the boardwalk with the We family. The family loves the Disney Dream and Castaway Cay. That's HGTV's call to action to create We Cay. The crew creates a sandy beach with a 40-foot long boardwalk right in the Wes' backyard, but the fun doesn't stop there. The Wes are getting a new lagoon pool, a bridge leading to their own private island and some fun Nemo-inspired water features. Plus, Mom and Dad aren't left out. They get their own private cabana. There's plenty of Disney magic in store as My Yard Goes Disney.
Pack up the camping gear and head to the Monize backyard, a Fort Wilderness Campground and Lodge inspired play space. With a five acre yard, the Monize family has given HGTV's My Yard Goes Disney design team plenty to work with. The team is coming up with ideas to keep this active family busy on into the night. With winding bike trails, an exploding geyser splash zone and a camping area, this yard is a dream come true, and when night falls, the whole family can enjoy watching their favorite Disney movies at their very own outdoor theater. Grab your gear for a magical outdoor adventure!
HGTV's design team searched the country for a family with plenty of Disney spirit and found the Browns in New Jersey, a family whose love for all things Disney is out of this world. That's why the HGTV crew is turning their backyard into a playground inspired by Disney's Hollywood Studio's Toy Story Mania. With a Buzz Lightyear-style spaceship for the boys, a toy barn and a pizza oven for some Pizza Planet fun, this family's yard is going Disney in a big way. The fun doesn't stop there. We're adding some All-Star Sports Resort fun to the yard, too, so the boys can enjoy all their favorite sports right in their own yard. Mom and Dad won't be forgotten. They're getting their own hot tub for relaxing. The Brown family's Disney memories are about to go to infinity and beyond.
Get ready to combine a little bit of fairy dust with a swashbuckling good time as the Galloway's back yard is magically transformed into an imaginative playground.

What little girl wouldn't dream of her very own Pixie Hollow complete with a pedal splash pad? What little boy wouldn't love a real pirate ship to take him on adventures? And, mom and dad get to relax on their new deck with a wave-inspired shade structure to watch the dramatic play unfold right in front of them. So put on your costumes and get ready to dream up an amazing Disney Fantasy adventure!
