Good morning! This day in Disney history, Oct 25th, 2000. 30 lucky Haunted Mansion fans dine in the popular Disneyland attraction as part of a $2000 a plate Fantasy Dinner offered by the park. According to doombuggies.com: "These lucky guests were given Disney's famous white-glove treatment & an evening to remember. In addition to the Mansion meal, attendees were invited to a private lunch @ Club 33 & were given tickets to a "Disney Divas" event the following evening. The night of the Mansion dinner, guests were picked up from their hotel by zombie chauffeurs & carried in stretch limousines through the back alleys of Disneyland Park until they ended up at the fog-shrouded gates of the Haunted Mansion. Greeted by a number of guest ambassadors, the diners wind their way through the deserted Mansion queue, noticing that each of them had a personalized tombstone emerging from the fog. Jack Skellington himself was the emcee for the evening & the diners found themselves eating alongside surpise guests Imagineer Rolly Crump, who shared stories of the Mansion's creation & Alice Davis, widow of Imagineer Marc Davis (& Disney legend in her own right.) Throughout the evening, Jack's beau Sally played classic rock tunes on a harp, & other characters provided ghoulish entertainment throughout the evening. @ the end of the meal, diners were presented w/their own death certificates: "Death by Chocolate." After dinner, the guests were taken through the Haunted Mansion - first in Doom Buggies as usual, and next by foot, w/the lights on, in a rare backstage tour. Finally, another trip was offered in the Doom Buggies - although this time, costumed entertainers hid amongst the shadows to provide unexpected scares. After a relaxed trip back to the hotel, each guest arrived in their room to find their customized tombstone waiting on the bed - along with a personalized charger created by Elisabete Gomes" (pictured below).

According to doombuggies.com dinner was served in "The Great Hall (the Changing Portrait corridor) where a long dining table stood set for thirty and heaped with dozens upon dozens of dead flowers. Each setting was graced with a severed Mickey hand holding a menu for the evening." - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 9:05AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of Aug 3, 2015
It's going to be HOT at Disneyland this week with weather in the high 80s. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity), which is light for summer crowds. We expect it to be busier this week, however the hot weather does play a factor in crowd level as it tends to keep the locals away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 3, 2015 11:58AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  488.4 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7122 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  383.1 #555 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  160.8 #2482 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1420 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4704.3 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.3 #10619 9:33AM
