Disneyland is celebrating Halloween time with a fun offering: Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit!
And the best thing is, anyone can play because is taking place in the Downtown Disney District! So no need to buy tickets to the park to enjoy this fun activity. During the event guests can search throughout the district for character-themed pumpkins, fill a game board with stickers and redeem it for a spooky prize.
“I love Downtown Disney because every year we get to decorate it totally different for each season,” said Sara Dehghan, the Resort Enhancement team lead who managed the project. “There’s a lot of space for creativity.”
So for Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, Sara’s team transformed different shaped pumpkins into classic Disney characters, for example for Goofy they picked a taller pumpkin, and for Mickey a more round one, it’s all in the details after all. They made sure to pay extra attention in all the details for each character pumpkin.
The painting of these beautiful pumpkins were in charge of Steve and his fellow artists, they have been painting 13 pumpkins that make up Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit. Each one is inspired by a different character. “The time to paint each pumpkin varies ranging between one to three days” shared Steve. When asked which one took the longest, he said the details that went into the Moana and Tiana pumpkins really set them apart.

Here is a hint for you, the location of these pumpkins are related in some way to each character, for example Mrs. Potts is brewing outside Starbucks and Princess Tiana is playing at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, see what im talking about? So try to look for locations related to each character to find them more quickly!
Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit will be available from September 9th through October 31st while supplies last. Guest can join on the fun by purchasing the game board with stickers for $9.99 at select merchandise locations like World of Disney, Disney’s Pin Traders, Disney Home, The Disney Dress Shop and WonderGround Gallery. Once you complete the challenge, you can redeem your prize at World of Disney or Disney’s Pin Traders.
