I am sarcastic. Usually people don't get it. I love Disneyland, hockey, and reading romance novels. Weird I know!

Went on the holiday haunts tour tonight which got hijacked by Gracey who has apparently been hijacking tours for years and is a legend. This was my first encounter with him, anyone know about this legend?

Master Gracey from the Haunted Mansion. I love the Halloween Haunts tour, primarily because of Gracey. You might not recognize him with out the rope around his neck. - Atora  2702.0 #44 10:29PM
THAT'S why the name sounded familiar! Thank you... Now, how would he hijack Ghost Galaxy? 😱 - SPandEvLover  3982.8 #31 10:33PM
He hijacks the tour which goes on Matterhorn, Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion and ToT. He plays a very important role in "helping" the team fight evil villains that have stolen the magic of Disneyland.  - Atora  2702.0 #44 10:35PM
The tour is awesome! - Atora  2702.0 #44 10:36PM
Aha thank you Atora, he cut ally hijacked our whole tour and sure lots of fun facts about Halloween legends. We were lucky enough to get to ride ghost galaxy with him! - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 10:38PM
Thank for the info! That sound pretty darn cool😁😁 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1282.7 #127 10:46PM
As if I didn't wanna do the tour bad enough already! LOL Thank you!!! - SPandEvLover  3982.8 #31 10:47PM
Nope but now I want to know too! - PrincessDuckie  862.7 #206 9:59PM
I hope someone knows, all I know is that as we were walking around people were calling his name and taking pictures of him. Hopefully someone knows! - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 10:15PM
He is the Master of the Haunted Mansion, Master Gracey.Β He joins the tour to "help" the group find clues on various attractions. The team needs to get to a specific destination after finding all of the clues in order to prevent the villains from taking over Disneyland. So much fun! - Atora  2702.0 #44 10:31PM
master Gracey is actually a reference to Disney Imagginer Yale Gracey as an homage  who came up with a lot of special  effects for  the attractions for HM and Pirates - Dave  13313.0 #2 10:48PM
Is Gracey portrayed by anyone in this picture?  I'm confused how this picture relates to this post.  - PrincessDuckie  862.7 #206 12:07AM
I am also curious about this post. - Boundin  620.7 #311 1:02AM
Mater Gracey is the cast member in the first row.  - Atora  2702.0 #44 6:19AM
Now I want to do this tour. Sounds fun! - LaPearleNoir  1639.4 #96 6:37AM
It is so much fun! Last year if you bought the tour, it included the Halloween Party do that you didn't have to pay for both. If you're planning on going to a Halloween Party, check and see if they are offering the tour that night (and if this deal still applies)! - Atora  2702.0 #44 9:22AM
It was an awesome tour $60 after ap discount, we got to go to both parks and learned a lot about the parks and Halloween and rode ToT, Matterhorn, ghost galaxy and haunted mansion (VIP without waiting in line) as well as learn the history and a few scary stories abut them. We also go 2 Halloween treats a Carmel dipped mallow and a candy corn sugar cookie and a limited edition haunted mansion key pin. Totally worth th $60. - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 8:38PM

Went on the Walk in Walt's footsteps tour today, something I learned and never noticed before are the initials for Walt and Roy Disney are in the railing of the dream suite over looking rivers of America. While everyone associates Walt as being the imagineer behind the park it wouldn't be here without Roy who found ways to fund all of Walt's big ideas!

That is cool, thank you for sharing! - Wonger7  14.5 #8288 8:12PM

Had the pulled pork hot dog from Coke Corner today! AMAZING!!

I agree. I'm not a big meat eater, but I'd be willing to share this with somebody just to taste it. - MoChuck  130.9 #2965 4:35PM
Is that coleslaw on your hot dog? What's the other item on it? It looks yummy!!! - BriarRose110511  230.9 #1553 7:03PM
Putting coleslaw on hotdogs is really popular in the south. My hubby and I were thrown off when we ordered one in NC. Lol - LilMissPixie84  309.5 #816 7:05PM

I rarely branch out of my food routine while at the parks: sun dried tomato pasta for lunch and Hungry Bear burger for dinner. Next visit I need to have this. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #607 11:27PM
You can never go wrong with Hungry Bear. - Witchie77  364.1 #598 12:51AM
I concur....Hungry Bear is real good too! I love their chili cheese burger and the sweet potato fries....mmmm! - LaBelleParis  1315.0 #122 4:59PM
I'm definitely going to try to get that pork dog on Saturday, when I go back to the's looking R-E-A-L good :P - LaBelleParis  1315.0 #122 4:58PM

Lines were a little too long for our little ones yesterday but we still had tons of fun doing things we have never done before, storytelling in innoventions, met asimo the robot, watched jedis get trained and played in goofys yard. Fun day no rides!!!!

My son and I did the same thing yesterday! He had no idea there was a petting zoo or the innovations game area at DL and told me at dinner he had so much fun and didn't even need the rides. It's nice to enjoy DL without running around trying to cram all the rides in :) - lacha1305  13.1 #8789 5:52PM
I know what you mean, it was so nice not feeling like we were in a rush to get a bunch of rides in just went at our own pace and enjoyed everything! - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 6:20PM

Who knew going to dl could be so stressful, ready to leave today for the next 3 days an my princesses says her tummy hurts :(. Called the hotel to see if we can change the reservations and was told no and it's non refundable....not sure what to do :(

Argue with them. They are going to get their money either way if you change your reservations. Ask for a supervisor, explain the situation, and offer that you will go through them on the new dates, or never again. Sorry your kiddo is sick. - madsdad  1868.2 #83 7:56AM
Thanks, I will call back and throw a fit...don't mess with a woman with a sick kid.. It might not end up pretty! - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 8:07AM
Could just be gas. I would check her temp and if its normal, I'd head out. If you still aren't comfy taking her, try talking to the hotel manager and explain your situation. - Linzee  1141.2 #148 8:03AM
Well it didn't take long after I posted this for it to become official sick! I will call back and argue, see if it gets me anywhere! - akpoppins  263.8 #1182 8:06AM
Oh bummer. Don't take no for an answer, make sure you call the hotel directly (if you didn't already) the 800 numbers only go to a call center. - Linzee  1141.2 #148 8:11AM

We'll probably know more once the tree goes up on Monday - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.2 #9 9:08PM

2013 - Big Thunder Rehab - Rumor - (5/10/12) According to one Screamscape source, salaried members of management at Disneyland were informed of the rumored plan to take Big Thunder Mountain down for an extensive rehab from January 2013 and reopen it in Summer 2013. Or at least that was the plan… have to wait and see if the timetable of work that needs to be done will agree or not. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #280 8:02PM

I agree, but I have loved all the pics, and if I lived down there and didn't have a ticket, I would be looking for one, too! I am anxious to see how many people get the ears and if it catches on. I really hope so, because we I come back at the end of the summer, I can't wait to see it. But I'm sure it won't be as awesome as these AP events where EVERYONE is wearing the ears. *cries in disappointment 😭 - PrincessKristin  780.8 #229 8:02PM
