I think it's time for us to drop the subject of rule bending, am almost sorry that Jagdacrajou posted it in the first place on this thread since it caused so much discussion on the board. If he/she choses to rule bend, it's his/her choice, but I hope that that person will look at what's been said on this forum and think twice about doing so. So let's do the Holloween Time Information Boogie, and hope that they release the info sooner than later, since the wait is getting downright scary!

Thankfully most posts in the discussion have been pretty civil. Adults can discuss things and have different opinions without it getting heated. It's sad when it gets out of hand though. I feel bad for Jag because he/she was chastised so much for one little comment. A comment in which even stated she would leave if asked so I'm still not seeing anyone breaking any rules. But whatever. This certainly isn't the place to debate it. We can agree to disagree, I think.

Hopefully they will release more info soon. I'm mostly just waiting for park hours for my dates. Sadly, it'll be quite a few weeks for those, I'm sure.

Of course, a little creeping dancing never hurt anyone.

Okay, this is probably a dumb question, but here goes:

The Space Mountain Halloween overlay, what exactly is it like?

Is it an all day thing or something that only runs for the Halloween parties?

I remember a long time ago hearing that they had some overlay that was easy to switch on just for evenings or something. But I have a bad memory.

It is all the time. It is pretty much a big old scary ghost chasing you through space. It's a lot scarier than than the regular ride and all Disney ghosts to date.

It's funny - we are all waiting eagerly for different elements of info to be released!!

AmyPond mainly wants the park hours. Others want more details on the MHP, specifically. I am chomping at the bit for the press release thingy (which was released from D23 at this time last year) and the bullet point thingy that comes out on the DLR website every year, with the full rundown of what's in store for HalloweenTime in general. I am still kind of curious to see if DLR will decide to make Halloween Screams available to anyone on non-MHP nights - even just one non-MHP night a week. But primarily, I want to see if there are any new things added to the line-up of Halloween decorations or events, or if anything has been taken away since last year!!

I'm in the same boat as you, waiting for the park hours and entertainment schedules to come out. It seems like they don't want to release this info until they are 6 weeks out from the dates you want. I'm eager to see if they are going to have the WOC during the weekdays in Oct, as I may book a WOC picnic package if it's going to be on during the weekdays. Hopefully we will find out this info in the coming weeks as well. Until it's a waiting game until more info is released.

Did anyone notice that they posted the entertainment schedule through Sept. 10th, and there's still nothing about WoC on the calendar that Friday? I've heard rumblings from people who said CMs told them there would be no WoC in the fall, and now I'm starting to wonder. I can't imagine them not doing it, especially during HalloweenTime. We desperately need some HalloweenTime info. I'm sick of speculating.

It's fun to "watch" all of you get excited as you get your tickets to the Halloween party. We have decided not to go this year - of course, we may change our mind on that any time. hahaha!

I find this statement very interesting because that's not how Disneyland handles Grad nights. The Park closes. It's cleared completely. Then Grad Night guests enter. They must arrive on a bus with their school and stay until sunrise. No one is allowed to leave early. So.... how exactly did you experience the above? That's not how Grad Night happens.

Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy is an overlay. It runs with the overlay day and night, regular hours and party times. Last year was the first time they did it.

Hope this helps,

There is no way they won't do WOC at least on the weekends. They've spent way too much money. I think they real debate in Disney's eyes (and possibly why they haven't released any info yet) is will they have it more than just Friday-Sunday.

I can't imagine them not doing WoC either - at least sometime in the the Fall, even if not every night. They put so much $$$ into that show, and they have basically added all kinds of colorful additions to DCA it bring everyone's attention to the idea of color. They've made a major deal out of WoC. With no Halloween party in DCA this year, and the Electrical Parade not on the horizon until winter, I would hope that they show WoC at least on weekend nights in DCA.

Thanks for the info on Space Mountain, everyone.

Sherry, the bullet points will mention the decorations? If so, THAT is definitely infomation I am interested in!

People mentioned Candy Corn Acres before. That's just decorations around the Bugs Land area, right? I've seen some photos and thought it looked so cute. I'd love to know if they are doing that again!

If anything you would hope they would have WOC on the nights of the MHP as a way to appease the people kicked out of DL once the party starts. But so far for the calendar after Labor Day there is nothing for WOC. Very frustrating. Although it would make dy meal decision much easier and would mean a definite yes for the Fantasmic! dessert seating.

Basically, the little bullet point list thingy that usually pops up on the DLR website will kind of list the highlights of the season, like HMH, SMGG, the Halloween Round-Up, Mickey's Halloween Party, Halloween Screams, Candy Corn Acres, etc. It will also make a mention of 'spooky' or 'ghoulish' treats and merchandise. It will say something about the decorations and the pumpkins along Main Street.

The press release thing that D23 put out last year (but could come from either D23 or the Parks Blog this year) lists the same stuff but is a bit more detailed. It will go into more detail about specific food items or explain that Jack Skellington is the Master of Scareamonies for Halloween Screams, etc. This is where I am curious to see what the wording is when they refer to Halloween Screams and if it truly sounds as if they will only show HS during the MHP or if they might let other people see it on non-MHP nights.

That's exactly what I was thinking, too, Jazz. In fact, I just assumed that from the beginning - as soon as we learned the MHP was heading over to DL. I just assumed that the master plan by DLR was to lure all the people kicked out of DL over to DCA to see WoC. I would be surprised if things did not transpire that way.

I agree with that too. Why would they move the party over AND get rid of the Electrical Parade if they weren't going to do World of Color? All I gotta say is there better be a really good reason for sending off the DEP!!!

Also on the September schedule, I was surprise not to see the firework show on Sept. 10. Just like everyone else said on the thread, I was curious why the DLR moved the Halloween party from DCA to DL. But after what I read so far, it does make sense to move it to DL and get all the guests who are not participating in the MHP to go over to DCA and go see WoC. I'll be shocked if WoC if not running after Labor day.
