Oh, you mean you'll order after July 16th when they go on sale? Yep. Might as well get it all done in one swoop.

Disneyland at Halloween

One of the coolest things about the Halloween production happens at night. The sky above the castle has all kinds of images projected on it. I can't remember if it is during the fireworks or afterwards. They projected monsters, pumpkins and a variety of other things. All very fun.

Forgive me if this as already been discussed, but on the Podcast yesterday they mentioned that World of Color might get a Halloween overlay? Anymore information on this?

I read the same thing. There are 9 million WoC-related threads on the DIS at the moment, but somewhere, in one of them, HydroGuy posted some info from a Disney person who said that WoC is kind of built or set up to change themes like that. They could do a holiday WoC show or a Halloween show. I don't know if they would do it this year - so soon after the regular World of Color began. I would think they would want to wait at least a year or two before they start doing overlays, but you never know.

Toy Story Midway Mania is also set up for a Christmas and Halloween overlays (Mr. Potato Head already has his recorded holiday chit chat programmed in), but when they ever get around to springing the overlays on us is anyone's guess.

On the Good Morning America short for WoC the guy said they had 10,000 projections available so I would imagine adding it in would probably be easier for WoC than any of the other attractions. I can't wait to see it if they do!

I'm sure it will be really cool when they do. I imagine a Christmas overlay would be absolutely gorgeous, and they could really play up the whole villains thing for Halloween.

In fact, why do I think that the Halloween Party will eventually move back to DCA, with a Halloween overlay-World of Color as the main focus of the party (and reason to charge more money)?

I don't find it hard to believe either, Sherry! Although I don't think the Halloween Party would move back until after the expansion is complete, but you never know. As always, time will tell. Too bad time never moves quite as fast as we'd all like for it too. I would so love to see a Halloween/Villains WOC!

Do they do anything special or different for the Indiana Jones ride during Halloween? With the cavernous queue and the ride itself taking place in the setting it takes place in, it sure seems like it'd be a great ride to add some Halloween flavor to during that time of year.

Are you referring to the projections that occur during the Halloween fireworks show? If so, that show will ONLY be shown this year during the after-hours Halloween special event party that costs an additional ticket to attend.

Nope, nothing special to Indy.

Hmm...I called the Disneyland Tickets number (714) 781-4400 and spoke to a lady who was kind of grouchy. She told me that you can only "upgrade" to with one ticket and that Disneyland does not allow someone to use two tickets toward an "upgrade". I told her that I know someone who has used two unused tickets to "swap" for an AP before and she told me that Disneyland does not allow it. I asked if she could call the DL Bank to double-check and she told me that she has worked in tickets for 35 years and knows for a fact that it cannot be done. Ugh...so rude! Too bad I didn't catch her name

But yea...I think I will try calling later today or another day and hope that I get a more helpful CM

I would definitely call again. I try to go by the "best 3 out of 5" rule with CMs...LOL

Yes, definitely keep trying until you get someone who isn't locked into that mindset. Because...quite frankly, even though the grouchy CM has worked in tickets for 35 years, she is wrong! I mean, let me clarify - she may not be wrong in that they don't allow it. Perhaps DLR does not allow it now. (Remember I told you the last time I did a swap in October of last year, the CM at the ticket booth - while very pleasant and nice - said she had to check with the supervisor because they aren't supposed to allow it.) Maybe they finally decided to stop allowing it once and for all, but this CM you spoke to seemed unwilling to even check with the DL Bank to see if it was ever accepted in the first place! Clearly it was. I did it on two separate occasions - once for an AP and once for 3 Park Hoppers.

Now there may be allowances because of the kinds of tickets I had, which had no expiration dates on them as well as being unused, and they were not discounted tickets. They were full price. Perhaps combining the GAD and the LMT tickets together would not be allowed. But this CM you reached on the phone seemed like she didn't want to acknowledge that it had ever been done with any kinds of tickets. It doesn't hurt DLR in any way to do a swap with one day/one park tickets - they aren't losing any money at all. But the rules for the GAD or LMT tickets may be different.

I remember that one of the CMs I got on the phone last year told me that some CMs are aware of certain things DLR is allowed to do or not do, and other CMs have no idea that certain things are allowed or not allowed. So it's entirely possible that this 35-year CM has no clue they can do such a thing because she's never personally had to do it for a customer, OR it's possible that DLR no longer allows a swap and the CM just doesn't know that it was ever allowed it in the past.

I wish I could recall the name of the CM I spoke to who helped me on the phone and took the time to check with the Bank. I may have put her name in my TR somewhere. Why do I think it was Janelle? Something with a 'J,' I think. I'll have to check my TR from last year and see if I can find her name when I have time. If I can think of the CM's name, maybe you could even ask for her specifically.

This differentiation that Sherry just mentioned about her tickets being non-expiring and non-discounted is huge.

Let's look for one moment about how DLR handles WDW tickets. They will let you use one day at a time from a non-expiring WDW PH. Sherry's tickets were non-expiring. I know the GAD tickets expire. Do the LMT ones? I think this is the key difference in Flitterific's situation.

Not to say you shouldn't ask again, Flitterific, but I think the expiring factor is key when it comes to swapping.

Forgive me if this has been asked because I haven't read thru all the posts...

Can you order on 7/16 or do the tickets sell out before then? I think I want to take me DS who is 5 to MHP this year...He's never been to DL...Is it good to to MHP on your first visit? Will he get the full experience of DL during that time?
