I'm hoping it's nothing more than a decision hasn't been made on exactly how often they will be showing WOC during HalloweenTime and the rest of the Fall. It sucks for people trying to make PS 60 days out if it gets added in later, lol. But from what CM's on the phone said, the decision as to if/when WOC would be playing had not been made yet. But they also said it may not be known until September! I really can't see them waiting that long for an anouncement. That would really, really suck.

I think, as Sherry has said many times about many things, DL is still trying to figure it all out...

They hadn't planned originally on moving Halloween to DL, then hurriedly did. They announce the fireworks as an exclusive, get all sorts of flak, change their minds and decide on a mix-in (I know, it was a rumor, but someone posted when they talked to guest services, they were asked how they would feel about a mix-in, so sounds like they were at least floating the idea), get flak for that idea, and now are back pedaling, etc etc.

It just seems to me like they are trying to figure out the right way to do things and it may take a while. They may want to see what ticket sales are like.

And as far as WOC, October is also the windy time here in SoCal. Fireworks are cancelled all the time. People have complained already that if a breeze is blowing, it messes up WOC somewhat. And we all know what happened when they had to cancel WOC that one night after people had paid for dining. So they need to decide how to handle WOC during that season, if at all.

I hope I am not sounding negative - not trying to! Just saying IMO we may not know details "soon" as it seems like DL has been flying by the seat of their pants and it hasn't been working out too well.

I'm hoping that they will be having WOC on during Holloween time, because if they were to have it on a MHP night, I would be inclined to book a WOC picnic, as I doubt the family would be interested in seeing it when we go down in Feb/11. So I'm hoping that they make a decision regarding this soon so that we can all start making our plans around it, if you want to see it.

I bet they are waiting to see what ticket sales are like. It wouldn't surprise me, if ticket sales weren't great for the Halloween parties, if they ended up letting people stay in the parks. Why? Because in reality, it typically boils down to money. If they leave it a mix-in, more people will stay and buy snacks and spend money in the shops.

However, if ticket sales for the parties are good, I don't see them allowing people to stick around as long.

Other than the fact that some people here don't like it, why wouldn't Disney allow people to stick around even if sales are good? They really don't lose anything by doing so. They gain the possibility of additional revenue from food and merchandise. I can't see how Disney loses by allowing people to stay.

Other than people pissed off that they spent good money on tickets to an exclusive party that is no longer very exclusive?

Exactly.

When I spoke with GR they said they had received a good number of people asking about the exclusivity of the event, based on what they read on line.

I'm sure Disney heard it loud and clear that if they allow those that did not pay to stay for the parties ticket holders would be expecting a refund.

So yeah Disney *does* stand to loose revenue if they allow non ticket holders to stay for the parties.

Those that already purchased tickets might want to email GR and get it in writting that non ticket holders will not be allowed to stay and bring that email with them to the party. Better safe than sorry.

Anyway....I'm still checking the D23 site and the DLR site to see if anything magically appears about HalloweenTime. They are taking their sweet time in putting it up! Don't they know I am anxious for info, for corn's sake? ("For corn's sake" is something that Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy used to say, and I always got a hoot out of it!)

If Candy Corn Acres makes a return to DCA this year, will that be the only touch of Halloween inside DCA? Now that the Halloween Party is gone from DCA, will Candy Corn Acres be all that's left in DCA? The Candy Corn C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A letters were gone last year, much to my dismay. Will they make a final return this year before those letters are removed for good? Wouldn't it be cool if they decorated A Bug's Land for HalloweenTime?

Will the Villains return to the rather awkward (and not very spooky) photo op spot near IASW? Personally, I thought it was an odd location for a Villain photo spot last year. The area was kind of shaded a bit and some of the photos came out less than bright. I wish they could set up a photo spot for them in NOS - I think that backdrop would be so much better, but I guess they have to save that for Jack and Sally.

I keep checking too Sherry! I find it funny to have the tickets officially on sale to the general public and still no information. Are we not dancing hard enough or something?

Ummm.... I very specifically started my post with the fact that some people don't like it.

I guess this Creepy Dancing Guy is not getting the job done.

As you said, we gave him meaning and purpose to his life, and this is how he pays us back!!

You know who I think has the magic touch? Tablefor5! Remember when Tablefor5 did a special Memorial Day version of the HalloweenTime Information Boogie and then Heather from the Parks Blog released the info about the MHP going over to DL the same day or the next day, along with the HalloweenTime start date?

Tablefor5 - where arrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeee yoooooooouuuuuuuu?

It will be disappointing for the people who paid for the tickets and there are non ticket holders in the park during the party. If Disney said that it is only exclusive for guests who have MHP tickets than they have to keep their words by what they say or get a lot of guests who bought tickets asking for refunds.

I'm getting impatient with DL not giving out the HalloweenTime information so everyone can plan their trips.

Hm. This makes me re-think my future plans with Creepy Dancing Guy. He's breaking my heart already.


I think I need to come up with a new plan of attack here.

Hmmm. Nah, I'm all tapped out.

Good point. Which makes me wonder if Disney will SAY it's exclusive but then on the days of the party be a bit lax about kicking people out. We shall see, I guess.

When are they removing the letters for good?

Will Jack and Sally be around all day or just for the parties?
