  • A.I.:What could be added for the future Halloweentimes?

    Okay, I don't see a post on this, so here goes.
    I certainly hope Halloweentime at Disneyland goes well. We've read from Al's posts that the folks in charge plan on rolling it out at least a few more years, each time adding more Halloween stuff. So, what could they add to the parks to make it more of a "Disney Halloween Treat"? I haven't been, yet, so I don't know about everything they have, but I've got some ideas of things I'd like to see.
    * I'd like smoke machines pouring smoke above every body of water at the parks, unless it would interfere with the AAs or something.
    * I'd like a scavenger hunt that any guest could take at anytime of the day. You could gather facts around the park(s), and everyone would get a prize at the end (like a piece of candy or a button).
    * I'd like creepy sounds coming out of the windows on Main St. and New Orleans Square.

          Re: A.I.:What could be added for the future Halloweentimes?

          i really like the smoke machine idea

          i would also like to see the halloween theme spread to all the lands in the park, maybe add a different, recurring "spooky" theme for each land

          for instance, in adventureland, add the idea of that spooky tiki idol character from the new ToT ride over in Tokyo, or some made up african diety like it. maybe you see the statue in multiple places in black lit areas of the indy queue, him and his cronies replace the hawaiian gods out front of tiki, stuff like that (plus requisite cobwebs w/ giant spiders on them scattered throughout the land)

          NOS is pretty much set

          maybe added bats in places like critter country, ichabod, headless horseman statues, etc

          villians invade fantasyland and toon town

          aliens (some little green ones from toy story, mostly scarier types, and some star wars ones) take over TL

          frontierland maybe give us some witch trials or something? or is that too un-PC now a days?

          i dunno, im tired, what are all of ur thoughts for each land?

            interesting idea! however, some may consider it somewhat un-PC. it is a very unique idea though!

              well knowing how disney has been operating the last decade or so, anything remoted un-PC probably would be scratched, but the idea just came to me.....

              what if they did witch trials of Disney witches? evil queen, malificent, heck even ursula (use fantasmic!'s water screen system for that one)...

              "is it true you gave a one ms. snow white a red apple?"
              and have a bunch of frontier villagers yelling and rabbling and whatnot....

              "sentence is eternity as a hag, while THIS PRINCESS (points to any or all little girls in the audience) becomes the fairest of them all!!!" bring the girl on stage, give her a little cheap tiara or some candy or something like that...witch gets taken away in handcuffs

              i dunno, i guess so long as they keep the hanging/burning/killing kinda stuff out of it, they might be able to pull it off? maybe??

              but as i said earlier...im tired, ill probably wake up tomorrow and see that all of these ideas blow lol maybe ill have some better ones in the morning

                I'd love to see them steal the one good idea Knott's had, by turning frontierland into a ghost town after dark, and have dry ice all over the place, and ghosts coming out and stuff. Oh, and put creepy stuff in the BTM railroad during the inclines and slow parts.

                    I'd like to see the bodies of water covered with fog.
                    I'd also like to randomly see (at night) thunder sound effects in the hub and anywhere with strobes. Just a little thing to add a bit of atmosphere.

                      I think the different themed lands would be a great idea. I especially love the idea of putting the disney villains on trial. That could be hilarious!
                      I was thinking this morning about the smoke machines and the problems they may create for the ducks and swans. I'm not sure if they would create a problem, because they blow out steam, but maybe they could only come on at a certain time or something?
                      It could be fun if creepy ghost stories could be told at a campfire in the Big Thunder Ranch/BBQ area, or something. They could display elaborately-carved jack-o-lanterns themed to Disneyland Resort characters and attractions over there, and just turn it into a western halloween wonderland.
                      I really want to say that Frontierland could be themed to being constructed over a Native American burial ground, but I'm pretty sure that would be a no-go. So something else nifty could be done there. I guess the actual plans are to expand the theming of Frontierland each year they do Halloweentime, so we'll see what they do.

                        I think it might be a better idea that instead of the Villains being on trial, that they are just area characters. Afterall, why put them on trial (good versus evil) at a time of the year that is meant to be spooky.

                        I'd add shadowy projections to some of the areas around Main Street, add spooky noises into the recesses of the jungle, and really play up NoS on its spookyness with the fog on the river, sounds coming from TSI during the night (with the occasional ghost walking around), A Halloween Version of Fantasmic (Frightasmic?) and more spooky area themed character walk around entertainment.

                          WDW has a special ticketed event for the Magic Kingdom. I think some or all of the ideas you propose could be done, but at a SPECIAL party atmosphere. Add to that trick and treating.

                          Some ideas I would like are more towards a party. I would like more pumpkin treats through the park, like pumpkin cake, pumpkin ice cream, and of course pumpkin pie. Hot Apple cider at night would also be nice.

                          Of all the suggestions, the special parade and fireworks would be the top of my list. One wants to make Disneyland fun, but not a spooky place for children. I think that Main Street should be left a happy place, but the Rivers of America could be more ominous. The fog on the river idea is a good one.

                                I agree. I think that Tomorrowland would be a great place to decorate. I think that sending the message that the future has nothing fun, it is a bad idea. I would love to see bat or pumpkin images float around the ground or walls.

                                  *What I'm about to say. I keep thinking this would be cool to see at night* I keep thinking it would be neat if they made some kind Skeleton Dance theme. Have some people dress up like Skeletons and try to do that Skeleton Dance.

                                    I definitely agree. The villians don't get enough exposure at all. So let Halloween be their season to shine. Make them the stars of the fireworks theme/music and especially the parade.

                                      I totally agree about keeping the park un-scary for children. I think a little spooky is okay, but seeing as it is a park meant for all ages, I think they should lean towards humor rather than blood-curdling. Even HM has humor throughout it. They'll be able to reach a larger audience that way. Let Knott's and Universal scare the bejebus out of people. Disneyland should keep it fun for everyone.

                                      And yes, definitely themed food! Mmm.... themed....

                                        having villians dominate halloween time at DL would also be good testing grounds to see how the public would react to an all-villians themed land (or dare i say it? an entire theme park dedicated to them?)
