Good morning and TGIF!

This day in Disneyland history, Oct 25th, 2000: Thirty lucky Haunted Mansion fans dine inside the 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 and an evening to remember. In addition to the Mansion meal, attendees were invited to a private lunch at Club 33 and 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 surprise guests Imagineer Rolly Crump, who shared stories of the Mansion's creation

crump

as well as Alice Davis, widow of Imagineer Marc Davis
(both Disney legends)."

"Throughout the evening, Jack's beau Sally played classic rock tunes on a harp, & other characters provided ghoulish entertainment"

Jack and Sally

Wonder what they ate? Here is a menu from the event:

At the end of three course meal,  dessert was served: plates of elaborate dark and milk chocolates in hand-crafted shapes. YUM! Diners were presented with their own death certificates reading: "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"

I would have LOVED to have gone to this event!!  Sounds like so much fun!!  Imagine getting to walk through the HM!  I hope all those in attendance were as excited about that as I know all of us would be!   Thank you for this wonderful piece of Disney history!  Great job, as always!   - MeridaFan  4244.2 #38 7:16AM
Me too! At $2000 a plate, I'm guessing they were pretty "die" hard fans don't ya think? ::giggles:: What would you have been most excited about? Thank YOU Ma'am! - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:43AM
I think the walk-through would be most exciting to me. Closely followed by being able to go on it 3 times in a row with no waiting!  😂😂😂 Death by chocolate and wine would be pretty awesome, as well!  What would be your favorite part? - MeridaFan  4244.2 #38 8:10AM
That is very interesting information - adventuremickey  285.3 #1073 7:10AM
Oh good! Glad you enjoyed the read! :) - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:30AM
Wow, thanks for sharing. That would have been an evening to remember!  - LovemesomeDoleWhip  108.7 #3533 7:13AM
I agree! But a pricey one too! ::giggles:: Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6549.5 #19 7:37AM
Awesome! Thank you!!  - ythdudette  1527.5 #118 7:18AM
Wow. Never knew this. Very intersting. I learned something today. Thanks.  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  978.1 #201 7:34AM
How great it would have been to attend this event. Sally playin the harp...... Death by chocolate. Yes please!  Thank you. Duchess_SMK for another frighteningly delightful history post. A fabulous Friday to you.  - GrumpyPirateDad  1951.3 #94 7:57AM
I would have loved to it!  But I can tell you that even if I could afford $2000 a plate I would not have done it for something only a few hours long.  $4000 for my husband and I to have dinner?    Did the money go to charity?   I might have done it I knew the money was going somewhere really needed.  Sorry, I got hung up on the money!😊. Sounds like an awesome experience though. - AZDisney  610.5 #355 8:07AM
Wow. Very fascinating. I would not have wanted to go, because at the time I was 13. Maybe if it happened again, I would like to... Minus the CMs jumping out to scare me! 😨 - BriHizzle  374.8 #639 8:25AM
I so wish I could've done this. It's my favorite ride at both Disneyland and WDW. My favorite things would've been the "Death by Chocolate" and walk thru with the lights on. Thanks for this info. I hope they offer this again some day. 😃 - erinten  539.9 #409 8:38AM
I so remember wanting to go to this!  - Disneykarij  266.7 #1258 8:42AM
that would be awesome! - OhanaPhoto  6474.8 #21 8:43AM
Wow for two grand I can stay five days at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. However, it does sound like fun. Thanks for all you do.  - Midasgold  633.3 #340 8:46AM
I think it included accommodations at the grand. - bluefairy  643.8 #332 12:17PM
Wow, that would be amazing! In a world where I could afford that, anyway 😉 I think the best part would be the walk through, closely followed by riding it again with people jumping out to scare you! - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #349 8:56AM
Awesome!!! I would have done it for sure. $4k is not cheap, that's double te French Laundry, but talk about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Or would be once-in-a-DEATHtime? Lol - Normstar  102.8 #3631 9:00AM
So very cool!! 💀 - CinderellE-79  1025.5 #193 9:18AM
Great write up! $2k for the privilege... oh the life of the 1%ers! lol. It sure dos sound special though. Thanks again for your crazy attention to detail! - CobbPR  7314.7 #16 9:35AM
What a great event. So detailed as always. Boy, Jack sure has evolved.  - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2180.9 #76 10:10AM
I was thinking the same thing of Jack. - TiggersAndTinks  182.3 #2290 4:58PM
I much prefer his current look lol - BeatleMike  635.6 #338 8:33AM
Sounds like fun. I wonder if they would do this again.  - Chumash28  1343.7 #141 10:35AM
Add me please.   Fantastic post! - turkeylegman  911.8 #214 10:44AM
I remember reading about it when it happened. How fun for the attendees! - PrincessDuckie  928.5 #209 12:04PM
I recall that they did this again around March to celebrate 100 years of Marc Davis. - CM_Shadowgamer  2577.9 #60 12:07PM
Wow how cool! - brguest85  239.1 #1550 1:15PM
I would do anything to have done this! That must have been so amazing. Easily worth the two grand. - madsdad  1868.2 #98 1:22PM
Sometimes DL only gives to the rich or famous.....like a night in the Dream Suite. - april_december  299.7 #970 1:32PM
A few have won a night's stay to the Dream Suite via radio stations and shared their experiences and pics with us. 😊😊 - misschurro  7611.9 #12 1:42PM
they also give a lot for Make a Wish families and the military  - Linzee  1396.9 #134 1:47PM
Another awesome post! I would have given my right hand to have that experience. Sounds absolutely incredible! - missmimi90  2034.2 #86 2:02PM
Thank you Duchess for all you do for MW. It was such a pleasure to finally meet you at the Birthday Bash! - IHEARTSIMBA50  495.0 #460 2:57PM
OMG this sounds so amazing!!  I would have loved the tour with the lights on.  I'm sure the whole night was awesome!  Thanks for the history as always Duchess.  Really appreciate your time in posting for all of us to enjoy!  👻 - MinnieMousewife  917.0 #212 3:24PM
30 lucky people! Great article, thanks for posting the link - Witchie77  388.5 #606 4:15PM
Thanks for this.  I've missed your posts on Disney history!  What a treat! - TiggersAndTinks  182.3 #2290 5:00PM
I remember hearing about this! I would have loved it! I'm not superstitious by any means, but I think the personalized tombstone would creep me out! Lol - nerdgirl  86.0 #3930 5:05PM
I would make a deal with the shadow man to do this j/k (I'm watching the movie right now)👑&🐸.....To have a tombstone made for you by Disney that you could keep as a suprise would be the best - bonedaddy909  1623.5 #112 5:39PM
Read the entire article... sounded so amazing! Wow!  - carminaire  869.8 #225 6:12PM
Wow, I can't even tell you how much I would have LOVED to be at this event! What a dream!!   - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #198 6:15PM
WOW!!! That would have been an amazing night! Thank you for sharing this.  - WhatTiggersDoBest  687.3 #309 6:47PM

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!!👏👏👏 - secretagentangel  7416.0 #14 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2873.3 #52 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.7 #262 7:07AM

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 month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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  643.7 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7519 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 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  182.3 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.6 #1045 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #76146 12:12PM
Have Saturdays been less busy then Tuesdays or Wednesdays recently? - TiDoubleGuhErr  0.3 #88789 12:07AM
