Apply Now for "My Yard Goes Disney"

The folks at HGTV's summer series "My Yard Goes Disney" are seeking out new applicants who are interested in giving their yards the magical Disney treatment.

Jay Shatz, executive producer and director of the show, has now opened up his website,, for more applications. For the show's first season, applications were sought from those living in and near Orlando and Cincinnati. However, the contest appears to be open to people throughout the U.S.

Those wishing to apply can head over to the website, fill out an application and attach a personal photo, a family photo and a backyard shot. Also, a compelling story on why applicants should be chosen for the show is required.

As of now, the show has not been picked up for a second season. Says host Brandon Johnson: "It will depend on the number of submissions and enthusiasm from the HGTV demographic."

Joe says I can't apply because I relocate more than I change my underwear. And just as they would finish, I'd announce we are moving.

There may or may not be valid precedence for his angst.... =:o

I love watching the show and would love for my nephew to have something in his yard instead of just a plain yard. If you can help you can contact me via my email.
