For today's Disney Flashback we decided to highlight something that is constantly "flashing back" to us, since it appears each and every year around this time! Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is quite possibly our favorite time of the year. There's a new feeling in the air, a new atmosphere if you will; the villains are front and center, there are new attractions and shows to see that really put you in a festive, albeit naughty mood, and it's just plain fun to be around Disneyland when all of this is going on.
Hands down, though, one of our favorite attractions this time of year is when The Haunted Mansion is all transformed and "Tim Burton-ed" into the Haunted Mansion Holiday, featuring Jack Skellington and all of our friends from the Disney classic, "The Nightmare Before Christmas".
We know that a lot of people feel very strongly about this attraction one way or the other, and that the feelings on it run from "We hate it, bring back the classic!" to "We love it, never bring back the classic!", and we're definitely somewhere in the middle. We would fight tooth and nail to see the classic return to us every winter, but we're also not too ashamed to say that we look forward to Jack roaming the halls again each and every Halloween.
And it's almost that time again! Halloween has snuck up on us really quickly this year, and it's almost time for the transformation to be complete. We didn't even realize it until we were at Disneyland earlier this week and noticed that The Haunted Mansion was down for refurbishments. As soon as saw it, though, we could feel the excitement coursing through our veins! When this article publishes on our blog, it will be 7 days (September 16) and counting until Halloween at Disneyland! We can't wait to get out there and enjoy all that this time of year has to offer and share it with everyone on the blog.
We know this is last year's picture, but it is a Flashback after all
