HGTV SEEKS ONE LUCKY DISNEY-LOVING FAMILY FOR FANTASY-FILLED, OVER-THE-TOP "MY YARD GOES DISNEY" MAKEOVER

New York, N.Y. [For Immediate Release - November 21, 2011] If your family dreams of a backyard makeover that is worthy of a Disney theme park and even bigger and better than last year's My Yard Goes Disney creations, HGTV is looking for you.

Between now and January 30, 2012, HGTV wants you to submit your compelling story, photos and video in a nationwide search for the perfect family to help create a fantasy-filled backyard inspired by Disney Parks. One lucky family will be selected to transform their outdoor living space into their own year-round recreational resort.

Last season, My Yard Goes Disney host Brandon Johnson helped homeowners create a Pirates of the Caribbean(R)-inspired makeover complete with a pirate ship, water cannons and a water battle station; a Disney's Animal Kingdom(R) park-themed design with thatched-roof tree houses, a replica of a safari Jeep and a handcrafted fire pit. Other backyards featured a Tinkerbell-inspired oversized teapot playhouse, a Mickey Mouse-shaped swimming pool and a 200-foot long Disney Magic Kingdom� park-inspired train.

"In 2011, we saw spectacular fantasy makeovers that only the Disney Parks team could imagine and HGTV could deliver - transforming everyday backyards into ultimate family hang-out spots," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. "With this new opportunity, we're searching for one lucky family ready to make their space an ultimate Disney Parks-inspired dream come true."

If you think you have a compelling story and want to be the family bringing Disney Parks to your backyard, visit http://hgtv.com/MyYardGoesDisney before January 30, 2012 to find out how to submit your story, photos and/or a video to apply for your chance to receive one of this year's amazing outdoor spaces based upon favorite Disney Parks inspirations.

The family selected for the makeover will be featured in the season finale of My Yard Goes Disney as one of the 11 Disney Parks-inspired makeovers in 2012. In addition, HGTV will take the magical inspiration inside as well in their special, My House Goes Disney, airing in March 2012.
