I did the UE this past Friday. They start you out in DL, take you around there for a bit, then you go over to DCA where it ends and you are given your party wristbands, a trick or treat bag, a pin and a sweet treat. From there, they escort you back into DL. Seems like it would have been easier to just start in DCA to begin with instead of walking back and forth.
Also, they no longer use headphones on the Haunted Haunts tour. They have in years past, but now headphones are only used for the Holiday and Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour. Just an FYI in case anyone has a hard time hearing. Our tour group was full, and we really had to huddle in close to hear what our guide was saying. Make sure your wearing deodorant on these hot days!! LOL

We were there from Sept. 27 through 30, and the fastpass was never available for HM during our stay. At times the line wasn't bad. But, at others, it was very long, winding out into the walk way and off to the side where they had extra rope lines set up.

Modegard, Eddygirl, MommaU4, can you say more about the UE? Did you use a regular ticket to get into the park for the morning, or just your MHP tickets to enter when it's OK for party guests? People keel saying that you have to use a PH day because we will be in both DCA and DL, so I wondered about your experience.
Any hints at the sweet treat or anything a mama would want to know before taking young children on the tour? Please PM me if you fear ruining any surprises for others on the board. I want the kids to be surprised, not *me*.

Interesting that they aren't using the mic's. It was so convenient in WDW. What time was the tour? And what time were you let into the party by?

Thank for the info! We are really looking forward to the tour and Halloween party. I was sure they would start the tour in DCA and end in DL because of the party when you do UE, strange they would not. Oh well.

Was Friday night very crowded for the party? I heard it was sold out.

I am hoping it will still be hot when we get there next week! In Alberta it is windy, cold and rainy this week. I am dreaming of that California sunshine and the heat!

It was an oversight on my part as we took a ton of the glow sticks from Michael's for the nights we stayed for fireworks and WOC. I should have taken them for the tour.

Have fun!!!!!!!
Great idea! I am hoping to find some cool Halloween glow necklaces or something similar while we are in DL. Did you see anything like that?

Yes! There is a very cute Mickey pumpkin necklace available throughout the parks (I saw them at both DCA and DL). I'll post a picture in a few minutes.

Thank you so much for the map Sue!

Can anyone tell me where Snow White is? Since we are going as Dopey and Grumpy, I would really like to make sure we get our picture taken with her.

I wish it said on the map which characters were where...

Hi All - Figment just got back from a trip to Disneyland for Halloween! He "dressed up" as Lightning McQueen and a pumpkin (depending on the day).



We rode Haunted Mansion Holiday several times and here are some photos from the ride. It'll take two posts because there are so many photos!

Here are some from the outside. Starting with the mansion itself:


The scarecrow. He's also on the pin for this year's HMH pin.


The pets in the cemetery. I never noticed the area in front of Sparky's grave being dug up before!






The Oogie Boogy topiary


Now inside the ride...most of it seemed to be very similiar to last year, with the exception of the gingerbread house. The giant Jack head in the elevator!


The potraits in the walkway that change (these aren't necessarily in chronological order). First the sled...



Then the snowman...



Then the mansion...



Then Jack...(I missed/forgot to get the one of him in regular outfit)


Then Sally...



Then we're onto the ride...those pictures coming later tonight or tomorrow!

And if anyone has any information on Star Wars character appearances either in the day or during the party I'd appreciate it. That's something my boys (including DH ) would actually stand in line for.
Jack and Sally were together intermittently near haunted mansion. When we got in line they were both there but she took a break so we only met Jack. When we walked by later it was just Sally. And another day it was just Jack. So I would say it is hit or miss that you would meet both.

During the party Jack was in a different area closer to the New Orleans. He had a special holiday back drop. The line was long so we didn't wait. Sally wasn't with him while we were in the area.
