One Florida family brought Disney World even closer to their home by constructing a miniature version of the theme park in their own backyard!

With the help of  HGTV and Disney themselves, Tommy and Angie Bradburn surprised their children with the ultimate, over-the-top, outdoor makeover complete with mini replicas of some of Disney World’s most famous monuments.

The Bradburns spent many vacations in the Orlando parks and wanted to bring the same sense of excitement and wonder to their children’s everyday lives.

The children went to the actual theme park with their grandmother, who lives next door, and came home to the surprise of their lives.

In their own backyard they found a Tinkerbell-themed design, complete with an oversized teapot.  A 200-foot train runs into their grandmother’s yard where the children found an 8-foot tall replica of Mickey’s famous sorcerer hat.

The makeover is all part of a new HGTV show: My Yard Goes Disney. Future episodes of the show will feature backyard makeovers inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Fantasia.

HGTV’s general manager, Kathleen Finch, describes the series as “spectacular fantasy makeovers that only the Disney team could imagine and HGTV could pull off.”

My Yard Goes Disney premieres Monday, June 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
