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  1254.3 #111 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  5818.8 #14 9:05AM
