Well i've only been to WDW once when i was 5, but the space mountain ghost galaxy was the Best! The stars in the main room looked like they were dimmed for it to be scarier and the ghost was awsome! To bad its now gone, But christmas is now here. :D

I heard through the grapevine Mickey's Halloween Trick or Treat Party may move to Disneyland this year because of World of Color Opening.

I really hope not. It is a popular event but moving it to Disneyland. Would do a dis-service to guests at Disneyland Resort. WOC will close half it rides by 8 p.m. Disneyland will most likely close by 5 p.m. to get ready for TOT Party.

Having been to Disneyland on a Friday evening already puts lots of pressure on a single park when DCA closes early.

Any word on what they mean by the "revamped" Haunted Mansion Holiday?? :?

Also, it sounds like they've been taking notes from Disneyland Paris. They've been doing up Halloween bigger than Disney World for many years now. :mickey:

I haven't seen anything revamped about it. The only thing they changed since the year before was the gingerbread in the Ballroom scene. One year he was in a coffin and last year it was a gingerbread carousel.

As long as it doesn't end up like HKDL, I think it'll be ok...

The Gingerbread house thingy in the Holiday Haunted mansion is different every year, it is an actual gingerbread creation made by the head dessert chef at the resort. As for the "re-vamped Holiday Haunted Mansion" every year they tweak a few things that didn't work the previous year. They also add in new effects that you really don't notice unless you have a great memory. This year the revamped is the fact that they painted a lot of stuff after the removal of the HHM in January. I haven't heard of any big new things but if I do I will let you all know immediately.

I haven't noticed anything being repainted but it's good to know you'll keep us informed!

The stuff that was repainted were things like the move walk ways and escalator, but that happens often and many of the props and the character that are in the HHM since they were starting to show their age, not much so far. I have heard inklings of a possible scene change, but I hear that every year, sort of like the new videos for soarin rumors....

I'm with ya on that one! I love Patrick Warburton and I can't get enough of Soarin'! Now, it would make sense if they changed the video for WDW's version since Soarin' Over California doesn't make sense in Florida...but as long as there's a CA theme running through DCA, Soarin' should stay as is.

Wanna talk about celebrating Halloween? I discovered recently on YouTube a video of how DLP celebrated one Halloween with the Phantom Manor. It's a projection show on the manor itself, which is covered with totally with white sheets. Interestingly enough, it was in 2004, before Disney did similar projections on IASW at DLR during the 50th Annivesary celebrations. Here's the link:

Yes! I do recall seeing the projections on IASW. I loved that show that they did before they turned on the lights for IASW Holiday and I hope they do it again.
