We are excited to share our experience at the Magic Kingdom and what you need to know about the Transportation and Ticket Center, otherwise known as the TTC.
On this quick episode of the Obscure Disney Podcast, we are talking about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. With dates now beginning in August, How early is too early? Listen in to get our take on Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a separate-admission Halloween-themed event held annually during the months of August, September, and October at the Magic Kingdom theme park of the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando, and at Disneyland Paris Resort outside Paris, France. The party began as a response to the Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Florida. Disney’s event caters to a traditional family atmosphere, whereas Universal’s has more of a “fright-centered” event with their monsters (Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, Jason Voorhees, etc.)
The event encourages guests to dress up in Halloween costumes and celebrate the season with themed events throughout the park. Normal rules prohibit guests over the age of fourteen years from dressing in costume; however, this rule is waived for the party, although anyone dressed as a Disney character is prohibited from signing autographs or posing for pictures with other guests so as not to be confused with regular cast members (the Disney term for employees) in those roles.
On this episode of Obscure Disney Podcast, we discuss Disney’s Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom. We talk about Hat Box Ghost and the Fantom Manor in Disneyland Paris.
The Haunted Mansion is a dark ride attraction located at Disneyland Park (Disneyland Resort), Magic Kingdom, and Tokyo Disneyland. The attraction, although differing slightly in every location, places riders inside a haunted manor resided by “999 happy haunts”.
The Haunted Mansion features a ride-through tour in Omnimover vehicles called “Doom Buggies”, and a walk-through show is displayed to riders waiting in the line queue. The attraction utilizes a range of technology, from centuries-old theatrical effects to modern special effects featuring spectral Audio-Animatronics. The Haunted Mansion has inspired two similarly themed attractions, Phantom Manor and Mystic Manor, which exist at Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland, respectively.
