Scary Mountain...

Boo! Boo! Boo!


I know many of you have heard rumors about this...

Some people have been reporting this already. I didn't want to say anything just yet, as I've known about the proposal for about a month, but hadn't heard if it got approval. Well, it appears that it now has.

Brady McDonald, over at the LA Times Daily Travel Blog has gotten confirmation about it. The theming overlay that Hong Kong Disneyland got for their Space Mountain known as “Ghost Galaxy” back in 2007, will have a new scary soundtrack, lighting and Halloween-style projections. This will come in addition to the new themed holiday fireworks and many more villains being seen inside the parks.

Go over to the blog and see the details...

It looks to me like the LA Times source is MiceAge. I don't know if I would call that a confirmation.

If true, I'd say it's awesome. Just so long as they go back to the traditional theming after Halloween.

I'm just hoping they really spiff up Space Mountain down in the Magic Kingdom. I've always liked Space Mountain, but I thought the music at Disneyland was better, and I have always thought that Space Mountain could use crisper, brighter graphics in the ride itself--brighter stars, brighter meteors and planets and so on. I'm looking forward to finding out what all they've done once it opens--I enjoyed the refurbishment of the Haunted Mansion--even though I may not be back down there for several years. I was very sad to find it closed when I was down in Orlando in April, and even sadder that that meant the Tomorrowland Transit Authority was closed--hope that comes back in all it's glory, and remains. Never cared for the rocket cars or whatever replaced the WEDway People Mover down at Disneyland.

they were doing this for Tomorrowland Cast members as part of the Tomorrowland Halloween parties in 2008.

Honor, can you at least hint at or mention things whenever you get wind of them?

It'd be so nice for you to be the one to at least mention things 1st.

What sucks now is every time anyone touches miceage/chat for the next 5 months or so and hears about the Halloween stuff they'll have to read- "AS AL LUTZ/WE SAID HERE FIRST!!!!!"

It's like Miceage/chat physically pleases itself with saying that.
