Disneyland Pumpkins, Part I

A week ago, I posted some pictures from the carved pumpkins at Disneyland, the ones from 2008 anyway. I've since been there twice and have taken many pictures of the carved pumpkins there. I wanted to share about half of the batch now and I might post the second batch maybe later today or some time this weekend. Perhaps the carved pumpkins will keep you company while I'm in Nevada.

Anyway, all of these pumpkins are absolutely fantastic. The pumpkin-carvers (if you can call them that) are amazing. It's one thing to carve a pumpkin, but another thing to give it life. And most of the carved pumpkins out at Disneyland have lives of their won.


I know I posted this before, in the last Friday Leftover entry, but I just think it's so stinking awesome! Can't get enough of this!
The quality of this picture is kinda crappy but I'm sure you can tell who that is even if the picture is a bit blurry.

I'm not sure who this smiley-faced character is supposed to be. I know, I should probably know this but I don't. Anyone recognize this person?
Another one I can't quite place. Maybe if these characters had bodies I could tell who they are.
This, however, is Boo from Monsters Inc. Not sure about the picture quality though. Sorry about that, but I haven't found my charger for my good camera. Guess what I'll be doing this morning?

Here's Remy and Linguini from Ratatouille, except Remy's not hiding under Linguini's hat. He's bearing it all for the world to see.
Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean. With all the tentacles or whatever they are on his chin, I'd have thought this one wouldn't be possible on a pumpkin, but the awesome carvers found a way.
Ursula's just as evil-looking on a pumpkin as she is in The Little Mermaid. She's a big, imposing figure and has a smug look on her face, like she's plotting to do something wicked.
Not, that's not a real pumpkin but the girls liked it anyway.

I keep wanting to say that first unknown is from Alice in Wonderland, but I'm not sure. Amazing how they do those!

Ah talent -- I'm lucky if my carved ones turn out remotely close to what I was hoping for...

Great pumpkins...we usually go to Disneyland in October, but not this year, so thanks for sharing the pumpkin pictures.
