HGTV TEAMS WITH DISNEY PARKS TO CREATE FANTASY-FILLED BACKYARDS IN "MY YARD GOES DISNEY"

New York, N.Y. [For Immediate Release - May 10, 2011] Homeowners who want a license to create over-the-top backyards worthy of a theme park will get it with HGTV's new weekly series My Yard Goes Disney, premiering on Monday, June 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. During the six-episode series, hosted by R. Brandon Johnson, HGTV and Disney Parks will team up to surprise lucky families with a spectacular backyard makeover. Whether it's a collection of water-spouting elephants, a miniature teacup ride or a magical pool inspired by Mickey Mouse, HGTV brings the fun and spirit of the Disney Parks home.

"Disney and HGTV are teaming up to transform backyards into the ultimate family hang-out spot," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. "This series features spectacular fantasy makeovers that only the Disney team could imagine and HGTV could pull off."

In the premiere episode, viewers meet homeowners Tommy and Angie Bradburn, a couple who spent many childhood vacations at Disney Parks. Tommy and Angie now want to share their passion for the parks with their children. To create new family memories - and bring the distinctive look of a Disney design to their home - the Bradburns, along with the children's grandmother who lives next door, open their backyards for a Disney-inspired makeover.

While the kids enjoy the parks with their grandmother, Brandon and the design team arrive to install a 200-foot long Disney Magic Kingdom(R)-inspired train that runs between the two yards. A Tinkerbell-themed design, complete with an oversized teapot, is installed in the Bradburn's backyard. Next door, Grandma's outdoor space is equipped with an 8-foot tall sorcerer's hat. When it's time to reveal the amazing results, the whole neighborhood arrives to celebrate.

Visitors to http://www.hgtv.com/makemyyarddisney can get in on the Disney-inspired action from Tuesday, May 31, through Monday, July 18, 2011 by entering for a chance to win a five-day, four-night trip to Disneyland(R) or Walt Disney World(R) Resort. In addition, the winner will meet with a Disney horticulturalist and an Imagineer to find out how they can bring some of the Disney magic home.

Future episodes of My Yard Goes Disney will feature a Pirates of the Caribbean(R)-inspired makeover complete with a pirate ship, water cannons and a water battle station. Other makeovers will include a Disney's Animal Kingdom(R)-themed design with thatched-roof tree houses, a replica of a safari Jeep and a handcrafted fire pit.
