  • No Walt Disney World HMH.....EVER?

    I just read over at Scream scape that the idea for Haunted Mansion HOliday at WDW may have been dropped all together.....

    http://www.screamscape.com/html/walt_disney_world.htm

    Read it for yourselves dang gum!

    Not that I mind though....Ive ridden it so much, Im practically bored with it by now :ap:

    What the theory is hows is since WDW is mainly tourists.. adding HMH may disrupt people's visit.. (even if it is during the holidays.. and country bear does a holiday show..) hence no IASW holiday... or sadly HMH....

      Not everything has to be cloned.

        I think that reasoning is a bunch of crap. People won't "get it" or "want it" because they are tourists from other countries?! and yet they've introduced Halloween in general and the HMH in both of the international Disneylands. Those countries didn't really care about Halloween, and yet now they have better celebrations than we Americans do. What's up with that?!

          I can confirm that the story is correct... WDW Management isn't interested in closing the mansion for that long on an annual basis.

            From someone who has experienced WDW for many years, and now just learning about DLR here, I have to say it is a shame. HMH is wonderful, and has quite a following out here. I understand the frustrations about cloning attractions; perhaps a few changes to make it unique to WDW, but we used to fly to Anaheim, almost just for HMH during the holidays. Course now we can drive....

              I say HOORAY!!!!!!! It's about time Disneyland has something unique that WDW can't have. Sometimes I get sick to death of WDW-this and WDW-that, "The castle is bigger", "There's more to do", "Let's go celebrate WDW's 50th Anniversary!!!!!"

              Give America a reason to come to Disneyland. Pirates is better. Small World is better. Space Mountain is better. And we get two, count 'em, TWO amazing holiday overlays because Disneyland deserves to be the favored Princess in the Disney Royal Family.

              OMG!! Sorry everyone. I stepped away and apparently the ghost of Walt Disney just threw up all over my computer... :angel:

                DL does not equal WDW

                What does that mean? DL does not cater to the same audience as WDW. People go to WDW a week or two every year or so and fly in and stay on site, people go to DL every weekend or once a month (or less) and drive from their house. WDW wants to minimize downtime of rides to keep tourists happy, thus no HMH, which would make the HM go down for 1/6th of the year.

                  lets review the list...
                  Alice... Pinochio.... HMH... Matterhorn...IASW holiday...and some more.. You should remember that WDW doesn't have these... (though Everest is a modern version of matterhorn if you think about it..)

                    Don't forget Indy. Even though Dinosaur is the same track layout, I still want to see Indy, since it apparently (and most likely deservedly so) is far superior to WDW's Dinsosaur.

                      I agree with that, but I would have liked to see what could have become of HMH (one of my utter favorites) in the larger expanded format that WDWs HM could provide.

                        Is WDW's Mansion that much larger than Disneyland's? I don't remember it being larger. It's got an extra room (the library), but isn't that about it? And the library isn't all that. I still think Disneyland's Mansion is better. I mean, it's got a freakin' elevator, not just a silly ceiling that rises in a poor imitation of the classic Disneyland effect.

                        :!$#%: Walt Disney's ghost! I just got my computer cleaned up and he's back for more...

                          Yes it is. Dinosaur is good, Indy is fantastic.

                            DL's elevator HAS to go down. Gotta get to the show building.
                            WDW's, I believe CANNOT go down. Water tables and such.

                              I agree. There was a big stink here (or at MP, or at WDWMagic) about Fantasmic! going down for a week in January a couple years back.
