  • [Idea] Holiday versions of Disneyland rides (Xmas + Halloween)

    All this talk of the upcoming Xmas version of Jungle Cruise has got me wondering...if it were up to you which rides do you want to see get a holiday version of and which holiday?

    My Picks

    Halloween:
    Big Thunder Mountain
    Jungle Cruise
    Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin

    Christmas:
    King Arthur Carousel - probably not very possible to put holiday garland around the horses and stuff
    Small World - what currently exists is okay
    Haunted Mansion - I would like something more classic and fitting for the Haunted Mansion with no character overlays. In other words I would get ride of The Nightmare Before Christmas stuff. The overlay doesn't work as well as it should.

    Toy Story Mania - both holidays could easily work (Christmas and Halloween games!)

    I agree with The Haunted Mansion. No character overlays. But I know, sadly, I'm in the minority here.

      I believe given the choice, I would overlay one *land* and call it done. Maybe rotate it every year/few years, but still leave most of the park open as it is intended to be rather than an overlayed holiday debacle.

      I'm also increasingly anti-Christmas and EXTREMELY anti-Christmas merch, so take that as you will.

        Not necessarily overlays, but I'd like to see some Halloween decorations in DCA. There's so much potential.

          TSMM
          HM but for less time, start closer to Halloween
          Small World ok as is
          Like the Idea of the Carousel
          Autopia Winter Wonderland, add Christmas trees, faux snow
          Tarzan's Tree House, Jane decorates for Christmas.
          Muppet Vision Christmas Carol
          Maybe a bit more on Storybook land...they do a bit as is.

          and...

          Soarin with Santa, that is all.

              "AP News Wire: December 13, 2014 Disneyland. Fourteen Disneyland guests died today, apparently after beating their heads against walls and railings until cerebral hemorrhaging rendered them unconscious and then dead. Witnesses report all fourteen guests were in line for Star Tours and shared the same last words - 'Oh God no, not Life Day"."

                      Yeah I'm not big on all the Christmas overlays over the top decorations and such. However I like what Halloween brings. Instead of more christmas overlays, I could go for a few more halloween themed ones like the incredible Ghost Galaxy overlay.

                        I don't mind Haunted Mansion Holiday, but I think the pre-Oogie Boogie versions had a stronger ending to the story in that it actually finished the story of Jack's Christmas Party at the Mansion. The Ghost Host's narration tied everything together nicely. Oogie just comes in really abruptly with no buildup at all.

                        As far as something without Nightmare for a Christmas Mansion goes, I'd be curious to see something done with the original plan of retelling A Christmas Carol.

                          I would like the Carousel with a Holiday overlay. Change the horses out with Christmas decorates ones or Reindeer, garland around the edge of the roof.

                          TSMM is rather simple and surprisingly not yet done.

                          I would like one attraction per land for DL. No dual season attractions after HMH.

                              I think overlay's appeal to locals and especially APers, but unless it's all going to be the same quality as Haunted Mansion, I'd rather they not. I personally don't like Ghost Galaxy at all, and I'd hate it if they did something that lame in other rides too (thankfully it's pretty easy to just ignore the Ghost Galaxy part, but it does seem to make the line a LOT longer).
