Little teapot playhouses and tiki lounge chairs: Disney comes to yards

June 13 |

Thanks to the link shared by Cortney, today we wander back into the world of interesting content from HGTV (whoa!) with their new show, My Yard Goes Disney.

Issues with Disney aside, it's hard to argue that Disney parks aren't an inspirational place when it comes to the entire Imagineering realm. (Plus, I mean, we all know about Bats Day, which makes Disney enjoyment more awesome.) Anyway, now some gung-ho Disneyphites are bringing the magic to their own homes — after winning a contest, of course. Let's look!

SUPER EASY Disneyfication! Mouse up your lawn with carefully manicured flowers.


I may watch if only to see how they made this effing teapot-playhouse. Love the blades of grass made of fabric, too.
This yard was meant to reminisce of the Disney Cruise Line -- and it's smart! I'm not sure I'd want to tend a large pool, but a bitty wading pool? Totally.

Were I to have a crew come to my house and use their Disney magic to find space to even do such a thing to my yard, I'd want something based on that Imagination! pavilion at EPCOT Center. Ooh, or maybe the Norway Pavilion.

  1. Me to! Getting some more on my tea pot tattoo on Monday. I am a little bit of a tea fan. ;)

  2. I love the idea but I really wish they had done this at different elementary schools across the country. These kind of backyards have a certain shelf life and might be completely removed by a future homeowner. Whereas at a school, they'll be used forever! With school budgets being cut across the board and some inner city schools having no playground or cement only playgrounds, imagine how appreciated this would be.

    • I LOVE this idea! Maybe we need to write these shows and suggest that idea.

    • I agree, especially about the "shelf life" of these sorts of projects.

      I ALSO agree that we should write in to this show and get them to consider the school idea.

      Btw, this ^^^is why I love the Offbeat franchise so much. Ideas like these.

    • No. Shit. Reading about the show, I just imagine the families' kids growing up and then…awesome teapot, doin' nuthin. :(

      • Fuck that! If I had a teapot in my backyard that my kids were "too old" to play in, I'd convert it to a little studio for myself. YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD FOR TEA PARTIES!

  3. This former lifeguard knows – maintaining a wading pool is *just* as much a PITA as maintaining a bigger pool. And if your pumps are old and horrible… sometimes even worse.
