I also thought the article from, I think, Mouseplanet - http://www.mouseplanet.com/9319/Here_Comes_SpiderMan - was interesting - about the possibility of the Marvel characters making their debut at DLR this year in terms of walking around and mingling with guests in DL, and how the Halloween season might be the perfect time for it.

I don't have a problem with Marvel becoming a part of the Disney family - I think it was an excellent business move on both the part of Disney and Marvel, and a super mega money deal, no doubt. But I think that if the Marvel characters are going to be part of DLR, they fit much much better in DCA. Does anyone else agree with me there? They don't fit in Disneyland itself. However, based on that article, it sounds as if they will be roaming around DL and not DCA, or both perhaps. They fit soooooo much better in DCA.

Also, in that same article about the Marvel characters walking around in DL this year, there is a mention of the rumor (only a rumor) that the Candlelight Processional will have its last holiday in DL this year and will then move over to the Hyperion Theater in DCA next year.

Okay, while I have not yet seen the CP during the holidays, it is something I hope to do. I can tell - without even having seen it and just seeing photos and hearing reviews - that the CP belongs sooooooooo much better in DL. It doesn't belong in DCA! DL adds so much extra magic to the setting of the CP, I would think, that the Hyperion would not.

Sometimes I wonder what Disney/DLR/TDA is thinking with their plans! (Having both TSMM and HM closed on Labor Day, for example.) I know there is a method to their madness, and they probably think everything through very thoroughly, but putting the Marvel characters in DL and the CP in DCA? That's all kinds of backwards/Bizarro World stuff!!

I know the CP thing is only a rumor at this point, and may never come to fruition. But it really belongs so much better in DL. The setting in DL is perfect for it - with that whole 'bygone era' feeling of Main Street.

This makes me wonder IF DLR plans to unveil something else in Disneyland proper for the holiday season in 2011, if they move the CP to DCA. Hmmm...could it be.....a Very Merry Christmas Party (assuming the MHP goes off without a hitch for HalloweenTime)? I bet it is!!!

I know some don't like the seperate ticket holiday parties, but I don't mind them. We are planning our next trip to DLR (after this one) for December 2011 for my DS and new baby's birthdays. I would love to take them to a Christmas holiday party!

As for Marvel... I had heard the possibility of them making an appearance at the parks for Halloween, but hadn't seen the actual article so thanks for that. I don't mind them coming out for Halloween, but I think they should roam the Hollywood area in DCA, not DL. As far as year round goes, another poster on
a different message board suggested a Marvel themed restaurant with character photo ops in DTD. I personally think this is a great idea. Her suggestion was to change ESPN Zone's theme to Marvel, while I don't know about that, I do like the restaurant idea.

What I find interesting is that the DLR spokesperson said moving Halloween to DL was because "guests wanted more room," specifically NOT mentioning WOC.

However, the information in both of the above-referenced articles has as the underlying factor the impact of WOC - yet many people are reporting that CMs are saying it will not be running after Labor Day. (I realize the articles contain "rumors and speculation.") Just an interesting addition, IMO, to all the swirling mass of confusion....

And yes, Sherry, I think you are completely correct in guessing MVMCP will be coming to DLR!

I agree! Ideally, the best idea would be - if space allowed - for a Marvel-themed restaurant in the Hollywood area in DCA. There probably is not enough room for another restaurant in DCA without getting rid of other stuff, but that would be ideal. I'm not sure about changing ESPN Zone...although ESPN Zone is shutting down many of its locations (not the DTD location so far, however), so you never know!

When Dick Tracy was roaming around DL back in 1989 or 1990 or whenever it was, that never worked for me either. He didn't fit into the DL feeling at all. If DCA has existed at that time, he would have been ideal for that park!! It will feel the same way for me with Spiderman, etc., roaming around DL at any time other than Halloween (I can accept him at the MHP, maybe, but as part of a regular roster of appearing characters in DL, I don't like it). He needs to be in DCA or DTD.

I don't mind the idea of separate ticketed events like holiday parties so much, as long as there are clear advantages to buying those expensive tickets and going to the parties. As long as it is very clearly defined that there will be things available at these parties that will not be available in the parks at any other time, then it makes sense to me. People then have the option of buying the tickets or not.

I still think the CP fits so much better in DL, so I can only imagine that if the CP is heading over to DCA in 2011, something must be taking its place in DL as a 'signature holiday event.' And what fits that description better than the VMCP? (Which probably means that the famous 'snow' on Main Street will become a VMCP exclusive!)

The timing would make perfect sense, too. I'm assuming DLR/TDA wants to see how the MHP goes at DL this year, and what bugs need to be worked out. If it goes off without a hitch or without too many hitches, then by the time MHP is over, their Christmas holiday plans for DLR in 2010 would long be in place so having a VMCP in DL in 2011 would work out much better.

I noticed that as well! I was confused by it - by all accounts so far, there is no WoC after Labor Day (even though I think there is a secret plan in place to have it run into Fall and Winter, but Disney will say it's "back by popular demand"). I'm sure WoC has a great deal to do with the fact that the MHP is now in DL this year, whether DLR acknowledges it or not. I don't think they moved the party to DL just because guests wanted more space. I think they definitely did not want a conflict between WoC and the MHP/TOTP. It would be too tough to pull off both of those things in DCA, which is a smaller park to begin with. If there is no WoC or MHP in DCA this year, I hope they have something else Halloween-ish in DCA at night...which we would know if the stupid official press release of HalloweenTime info would ever hurry up and come out!!!

I agree that Marvel characters would be better suited at California Adventure or Downtown Disney.

And I also agree that the CP is better suited for Disneyland.

Just like everyone else, I am still confused why there won't be WoC after Labor Day. I also agree why DLR moved the MToTP over from DCA to DL. Not for just the extra space that DL has over DCA, but to promote WoC even more and letting more guests to see the show. We are just waiting until DLR puts WoC on the website after Labor Day.

It is a good start with the info on the HalloweenTime information on the OC website. But, I'm getting tired of not seeing it on the DL website.

We've been discussing it on the other forum which has many CM's that post, and most of them indicated that if a CM states that after Labor Day there won't be WOC, that they're probably just mis-informed. Disney hasn't fully updated their calendar (we all know how long it takes ) and that they're probably trying to figure out which days of the week to have WOC and also the number of shows. They were thinking it would be more of a Thursday-Sunday type of show during the late fall/winter months. I can't see them spending all this money and promotion on WOC only to shut it down after Labor Day for whatever reason.

The thing that makes sense to me about moving CP to DCA is that it REALLY creates traffic issues at DL. If you have ever been to the park during CP and NOT had an interest in the event, it is crucial that you plan your entire day around it or else you get stuck.

Last year a friend of mine was headed to DLR on CP day. I asked what their plans were for the day. He said, "Avoid Main Street at all costs."

I got my tickets for October 1! Sooo excited - we were lucky enough to be at WDW last year and went to MNSSHP (which we had been to a couple years before). The year before, we went to the ToT party at DCA, and were sorely disappointed in the parade and the party as a whole - I'm holding out hope that it will be more like MNSSHP, and I'm going to sit here and wish for a parade with a Headless Horseman and Haunted Mansion dancers until it actually comes true!
