Pumpkin carvers use the tools of a sculptor to bring an extra dimension of magic to the traditional Jack-o-Lantern carving. This year Disneyland has a pumpkin carver doing their thing every day at the Halloween Carnival in Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree. Check out some of their work:
Disney Channel star Olivia Holt (“I Didn’t Do It”) teams with one of Disneyland’s pumpkin carvers at the Big Thunder Ranch to deliver some tips for carving your own perfect Disney themed jack-o-lantern at home.
Oh yeah, there’s a pretty cool contest at DisneySideContest.com. Upload your own Disney Side pumpkin for a private party at the Haunted Mansion and a stay in Cinderella Castle Suite:
Follow us below the jump for a collection of jack-o-lanterns carved at the Halloween Festival at Disneyland.
