Less than two weeks ago, we brought you a first look at Disney’s themed carved pumpkins adorning the Magic Kingdom. Now Disney is sharing ideas on how to design your Halloween jack-o-lantern.
They’re boasting 182 unique designs all along Main Street U.S.A., including different designs and shapes like a hot dog pumpkin over Casey’s Corner and even a snowman pumpkin. These hand-carved pumpkins on the buildings and in windows have been redesigned with different designs and shapes, according to David Hartmann, an art director with Walt Disney Entertainment.
Here’s a video round-up of the pumpkin designs they’ve created this year:
For those of you who will be carving your own jack-o-lantern for Halloween this year, Disney has also offered some advice, straight from the people who make Main Street, U.S.A. so unique this time of year:
My own tip is to pick a design that appeals to you personally. Don’t worry about what others want to see. It’s your pumpkin and you can create whatever you’d like. I usually choose a character I’m fond of from movies, television, or video games, and run with it. A pumpkin carving pattern can be found online for nearly every pop culture character, so you don’t even have to be an artist to create an amazing jack-o-lantern. It just takes time and a little focus to get the job done. Happy haunting!
