  • [Review] Happiest Haunts Tour

    Just got back from the Happiest Haunts tour. Our tour guides. Erin and Rachel were really great! The tour was very entertaining, more than I expected Our tour ended with VIP seating for the firework show which by the way, the halloween fireworks show is really well done - I thought it was way better than the "Magical" All in all, I give the tour an A+ well worth the money.

        That's good to hear!
        Just curious, but what do they show you guys during the tour?
        Anything different from what a regular Disneyland visitor would see or know?

              I'd like to hear more too. I was considering it, but I wanted some first hand stories first.
              Details please!

                Disneyland's website shows $64. From what I recall, Disney visa, deluxe & premium APs, and AAA members get a discount.

                  First...I really could not imagine that it would be worth the $$$ (about $65 bucks each or so...luckily I get a CM discount) but it really was.

                  The ticket to the tour also incudes your park admission (even if blocked that day) and front of the line...including walking past all the fastpassers to the front of their line too. and even going in the back door on space mountain. (that did twist a lot of the people in the fastpass line)
                  The park was crowded so this was really nice.

                  The tour guides are more actresses...so they are in character the entire time - It started out at DCA in a little conference room backstage...this "ghostbusters" type tour guide, really funny and crazy and hyper bursts into the room and checks everyone for ghostly activity - passes out some headsets and then takes us out a backdoor and down the street to tower of terror. they tell some stories about ghosts, etc then you go on the Tower ride...When the elevator doors open, the ghostbuter tour guide is gone and suddenly there is the creepy ghostlike girl who acts all goth and sullen, she then takes you around DCA a little telling stories of gobblins and the basics of where halloween comes from. When she rides the Thunder Mountain ride, she literally does not move a muscle. just sits there unemotional and stiff throughout...so later ghostbuter reappears in the park and the ghoul guide disapears...more stories, space mountain ride, then take the train over to New Orleans Square where we proceeded to upset a HUG CROWD of people as we all (20 of us) walked past a very long fastpass line straight into the elevator room. We saw the ghost tour guide - her name was Rachel...hiding inside the Haunted Mansion waving at us - apparently she was an escaped ghost from the mansion that had to get back. After that, the walk you over to the hub and seat you in those benches right in front of the castle for the fireworks show. give you a treat. and bid you farewell. Oh and the crazy hyper tour guide makes us sing some strange marching song the entire walk from HM to the hub through the crowd etc....It was fun, the stories were well told, the guides for nearly flawless. I was impressed and have heard from many others that the Christmas tour is great too. I will be booking that one when it comes around. It's really a little different way to experience DL.

                    I want to do this on our trip this month, but was unsure how much different it would be from walk in walts footsteps, and if it would be worth the $64 and if the kids would like it. lets here some more please!

                      I talked with a couple of people on this tour that said walk in walts footsteps is really nice too. What more would you like to hear?. I guess Walts tour isn't silly. the happy haunts tour is kind of a walking play? your guides are entertaining you,not really guiding you. then you throw in a couple of rides, great seats to the best fireworks show I've seen at DLR and you have a pretty good bargain.

                      How old are the kids? We didnt take any of our kids on this tour

                        It is interesting that you had such a great tour. We went on the first tour, on the first day and it was horrible. Erin was fine, but our ghost guide was awful. She couldn't remember her lines and kept forgetting to turn on our headsets.

                        BTMRR was closed so they gave us a fastpass to use later that night. Our 'reserved' viewing was in the AP Plaza behind a nice huge tree. Couldn't see a thing.

                        This was our first tour (ever) and I doubt we will spend the money on another one anytime soon.

                            I am glad you enjoyed the tour! We are going on it on Thursday. It is our first time doing any kind of tour. We are hoping it will be lots of fun.
