Let's go the the Disneyland Resort now....
Normally I would go to Disney California Adventure. But Disneyland was offering the Halloween season with Haunted Mansion Holiday and Ghost Galaxy. My goal was to visit Haunted Mansion Holiday before the crowds hit
Halloween Time 2013 has begun
The pumpkins are back on Main Street U.S.A.
Getting in line for Haunted Mansion Holiday was over by Cafe Orleans.
Cast Members were stationed on the front lawn, telling Guests to keep the line moving.
If one wanted pictures, to step aside and let others pass or take pictures while walking
No Fast Pass being offered. Makes the line move faster as it constantly flows through
They were using the Fast Pass distribution area as a Jack Skellington and Sally meet-n-greet
A banner on the front porch proclaims the 13th year of celebrating Haunted Mansion Holiday
It's as if this pumpkin was laughing at how funny the tree looks
Inside the stretching room, a new projection was installed on the portrait gallery ceiling.
It is a giant stain glass window of a Christmas wreath
As the room beings to stretch, the Christmas wreath stain glass window changes colors
There is no more giant Jack Skellington head that telling us "Happy Holidays".
It is now a new projection with Jack and Zero.
As you can see, the projection includes the light house steeple and the hanging man
This new projection is much better than the giant Jack head. I always felt that it was anticlimactic. But with this new projection, it ties in the scene very well.
The portraits now have an animated Zero flying through them.
Zero leaves the reindeer painting and then flies through each portrait.
Very creative and humorous
Uh Oh. The five times I went on Haunted Mansion Holiday, the portrait with the changing Snowman kept having issues
This years Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house
Recognize the woman holding the "Line Starts Here" sign?
She's the Canoe cast member who was on one episode of the "Every Role is a Staring Role" video
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad refurbishment continues
At Big Thunder Ranch, it is now a Halloween Carnival
The line up to meet the Villains inside the tent
Pirates League can also be found at the Halloween Carnival
Over at Disney California Adventure...
New Halloween themed Mickey Ear head bands have appeared
The frosting on the poison apple's glow in the dark
Queen of Hearts Halloween Mickey ears headband
Maleficent and Ursula Mickey ear headbands
Inside Laz Feliz Five and Dime Wait, was this Big Top Toys signage always here and I never noticed or is it new?
Looking at the signage from Elias and Company
Over at the Mad T Party, it is decked out a bit for Halloween Time
I am running out of time and need to head out to make it to my prior commitment out of town....
I don't think they want me to leave ha ha
That will conclude this pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out
Until Next Time...
