Wow. I think this is a great idea on TDA's part. Especially more so "Ghost Galaxy" theme and not pumpkins and typical Halloween stuff. Can't wait!

Ok, our October trip just got a whole lot cooler! I am so excited for more fun Halloween stuff!

I really hope that they do the Halloween fireworks while we are there!

Yep! I agree. With yet another attraction to lure in October crowds, attendance will probably be sky-high! At least it won't all be concentrated in New Orleans Square - more people will be spread out to different areas of DL. The thing is, they need to do more with DCA. I know they have the TOTP there at night, but not everyone wants to pay extra for that. They need to do more with DCA in the daytime in terms of luring people in for Halloweentime AND for Christmastime. They already removed Santa from DCA last year, and now there are whispers that Santa's Reindeer Round Up may not be happening in DL this year at all (because of the BBQ being there), so Santa has to go and sit somewhere other than the 3 hotels!

I know. It's tough, but I have to take one for the team and do the 'field work' and 'research' so I can accurately report back to everyone!

Yeah! Reeeeeeaaaall tuff!! Somehow, I'm not feeling too sorry for you.

J/K!!!

I think DCA is somewhat OK for Halloween, but for not for Christmas. I wonder what they will do with all the construction going on over there? The place where the Christmas tree use sit is gone. It would be pretty, if they could set in up in Sunshine Plaza and have Santa there!!!

Oh and for Halloween, they could decorate ToT again, and have random drops like WDW!!! Now that would bring some crowds over there!!!

So cool, especially since I will be there in mid-October! Everybody cross fingers that they do fireworks (just for me) on Columbus Day!

Strangely, the last time I rode Space Mountain (at DL) was during the Rockin' Space Mountain time. It's been since ... hmm ... 2001 since I rode the "regular" version. I did ride it at WDW last fall, but that's not the same.

Thanks for the updates

Santa does need to be somewhere other than the 3 hotels, and it sounds as though the BBQ may boot poor Santa out of his Reindeer Round-Up. I think they should put him in DCA just to make it a little more Christmasy there, but who knows...

There were reports last year that the ToT was kind of lame in terms of the Halloween decorations, and that there wasn't much to it. Is that true?

I notice that Storybook Land Canal Boats and Casey Jr are closed for chunks of time starting in August, and they are both reopening right in time for the official start of the Holiday season at DLR. Hmmmm.....they must be adding some new stuff in there. I know that Storybook Land has had some miniature Christmas trees and things in the past, but perhaps they are going to do an even bigger holiday display this year and go all out? That would be so cool.

Thank you so much for posting those pics for us. That looks way, way cool and I for one, am very excited to try it. I think it will make Space even more popular. Better get those FP's early in the day.

And Sherry, your comment about research made me think of the Cheerios commercial where people say "yeah, this is gonna be real hard, but I think I will manage somehow".

Looks really cool. Kind of silly two of their big attractions (SM and HM) are down during their huge D23 convention though!

Oh yeah! I have seen that commercial! Well, if I have to extend (snowball) my trip into a longer one in October JUST to report back to fellow DIS-ers on new Halloween stuff, I will just have to suck it up and do it. And then, in December, my favorite time of year at DLR, I will also HAVE to report on the holiday goings-on, and extend my trip then too! Oh well! This is very important information to learn, so all in the name of the DIS!

Interesting.

Sherry, are you seeing, like I am, a reason for PPH to be 221 throughout October now?

Yes! I thought of that very thing earlier today when I read Tinkermell's first post! That definitely crossed my mind! That holding pattern may keep holding after all, darn it.
