  • HMH or NO HMH, That is the Question

    This was brought to my attention at another post. Some people dont LIKE Haunted Mansion Holiday, and feel that the Haunted Mansion should remain unchanged all year long. Im curious how many people feel that way.

    I know I have a friend who likes HMH, but feels that the first year score was better then the current score, but how many people feel that HMH should just go away completely and leave this classic attraction unchanged for the holiday season?

    I don't feel that way at all! I have only been able to see the first HMH and I was very excited by it. I had not even seen Nightmare and I thought the overlay was very imaginative and entertaining. I don't think it takes away from the attraction as a whole and I really think it adds something special to look forward to at christmas. I think it was a step in the right direction and a smart move for the park.

      I like the change. It makes you look forward to the next time you come when it will be different.

        I like it a lot. As long as it is not a permanent overlay - we look forward to it every year.

          I like it... but I am getting tired of it.

            I think that HMH is a great overlay and fits the season.

              I like it a lot but I wish they wouldn't do it this year to celebrate the 50th

                It was a lot of fun! I do agree that it should only be kept for the Holidays though.

                Hmm...maybe they can turn Zero gold in one scene for the 50th!

                  I'm one of those people who like HMH more that HM, the overlay is so interesting and entertaining. I'm also very partial to halloween, so I've always been amused by the holiday combo idea.
                  I do think it would be nice if WDI continued to evolve the overlay, to add new and interesting things every season or two.

                    I agree with you.... I like HMH better than the HM... However it gives me a new appreciation for the HM than before... It would be nice to evolve the overlay wouldn't it... I would suppose they have to with some of the changes made to the HM this year...

                    Ironicly, I like HMH better than the movie Nightmare Before Christmas... But I thought the overlay was particularly clever and whimsical.... And much better than the IASWH overlay...

                      Although I really like HMH, I always look forward to going back to the original version. It's nice to have something different for a while, but I like the details and theme of the original better. That being said, I really like how they seem to either add or change something in HMH every year. And now they've done that to the original too .

                        Keep it. But don't do it this year.

                          Variety of the spice of cliche.

                          I'm not implying that HM or HMH is cliche. It is, by far, my favorite ride in either guise. I just finish out my cliches with the wor d 'cliche.'

                            variety is the spice of life, HMH is nice because it keeps the HM well maintaned and offeres imagineering a chance to make tweaks and changes everytime a switch occurs

                            I do agree with those who say the origional first year soundtrack was better (admittedly it wasn't much to do with Nightmare before Christmas but this new edited stuff is just way to cut back and doesn't fit as well if you ask me, it lacks the variety the origional score provided)

                            I say keep the overlay going with new additions and tweaks to both HM and HMH occuring on alternating years for a while (keeping this attraction up to date with the latest effects technology, it's already very amazing )

                            I would also really apperciate if they brought back the origional soundtrack

                            my only complaint with HMH is it runs in October (and dispite what some people claim this ISN'T a Halloween ride it is a Christmas ride and very blatantly so HM was much better thematicaly with Halloween and I would like to see Disneyland take some que's from Tokyo and start doing more elaborate Halloween decorating)

                              NBC is a nice movie and artisticly amazing. But I'm one of those people who gets turned off to something when its overhyped and pushed down my throat (i.e. Winnie The Pooh). Thats why I think Im so over HMH with Jack, Sally and that Evil Teddy stuff everywhere... And that damn song by lock shock and Barrel... It's worse than small world! I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I will be the brave one and say I dont like HMH and hope they send it to WDW!

                                sending it to WDW wouldn't technicaly work since they arn't technicaly engineered exactly the same (even though they visualy look pretty much identical)

                                I agree on the Lock Shock and Barrel "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" song repeating it doesn't even sound that good o_o

                                have you downloaded the origional music from Visionsfantastic.com? it's sooo much better it has good variety and doesn't sound repetitive

                                  I like it better than the regular.
                                  but it should stay seasonal.

                                    I think it looks tacky.

                                      I love NBC but I thought the overlay was lacking. Too many objects and not enough awesome animatronics like Jack. My friend and I thought the attic room could be changed into Finklestein's laboratory or something. After going on it two years in a row, I'm ready to have the regular one back for the holidays.

                                        I say keep it, but maybe change it a little bit every year. Also I think that they put it in way too early. I understand that they do it before holloween, but the overlay is mainly about christmas right? October is way to early for christmas imo. Mid November would be better in my eyes.
