Guests visiting the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort this fall can participate in a new scavenger hunt! Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, a new pumpkin hunt, is lots of fun for the whole family. Let’s take a behind the scenes look at this hunt.
For Steve and his fellow artists, the last couple of weeks have brought a new artistic challenge in preparation of a new guest offering. For Steve and team, it’s been a labor of love, painting the thirteen pumpkins that make up this pursuit, each one inspired by a different Disney character. “The time to paint each pumpkin varies” Steve shared, ranging between one to three days. Which one took the longest? It’s hard to say for sure, but the “details that went into the Moana and Tiana pumpkins really set them apart,” and for that reason are two of Steve’s favorites.

For the three artists working on the project, the “most challenging aspect was drawing the layout, and painting on such the oddly shaped and uneven surface.” For any of us amateurs that have tried our hand at pumpkin painting or carving it’s easy to understand the difficulty behind this project. After two weeks of hard work, Steve and team will be able to see the pumpkins being admired by guests of all ages. “It feels great to showcase some of the stuff we paint, the guests seem to enjoy it.” We know the guests will love it! We can’t wait to see all the colorful creations in person, only at the Downtown Disney District. Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit will be available from Sept. 9 –Oct. 31, 2021, while supplies last.
