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).

Such great info! What an experience. I'm wondering where they would have eaten ? Is there a room inside the mansion that can accommodate that many tables? - tuesday737  1291.5 #161 8:50AM
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  6631.6 #23 9:05AM

This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14386 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.2 #232 9:06AM

Does anyone have any info on the Matterhorn reopening?  It makes me sad there is no official date yet! - AngiMouse  563.3 #410 8:46AM
I heard, on Thursday, that it will probably be another month or so. This came from a guy whose buddy is on a construction team there. Not sure what truth there is to it, but it's all I got AngiMouse  - DisneyDiane316  2665.4 #65 9:08PM
I went to the Disney site and it doesn't say, but I was searching/googling last night and another site said April 22, but I have no idea if it is correct.  I want to know how long the Red Rose Taverne will be open.  I even emailed/contacted Disneyland through their website but I haven't got a response. - dianeburns1998  137.3 #3093 6:11AM
AngiMouse, I just checked, it was undercovertourist and it says April 21 ( not 22-oops).  I have no idea if it is a legitimate site. - dianeburns1998  137.3 #3093 6:14AM
Pirates is open now, right?  How about the Bobsleds?  List needs updated.  - MeridaFan  4263.8 #43 12:32PM
Pirates has been open since last Thursday. Matterhorn should be open towards the end of April. Then Indy will be down for the majority of May (so I've heard)  - DisneyDiane316  2665.4 #65 4:22PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  108.5 #3638 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  11902.3 #9 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  4727.9 #38 10:28PM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1090.4 #203 1:19PM
You're allowed to do it from the sign in front of each attraction or if you go on it a lot and can see the line is shorter/longer you can post that.  - secretagentangel  11902.3 #9 9:04PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people.
