    There Is A "Tastes Of The Haunted Mansion" (Disneyland)

    Hey Lou.

    I came across this on Doombuggies.com:

    Haunted Mansion Exclusive Dinner Event, 2000 (Disneyland)


    On October 25, 2005, thirty uber-fans of the Haunted Mansion were treated to the meal of a lifetime: A midnight dinner inside of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. For $2000 a head, 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 Disneyland's 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 chauffers and 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, and the diners found themselves eating alongside surpise guests Imagineer Rolly Crump, who shared stories of the Mansion's creation, and Alice Davis, widow of Imagineer Marc Davis (and Disney legend in her own right.) Throughout the evening, Jack's beau Sally played classic rock tunes on a harp, and other characters provided ghoulish entertainment throughout the evening. At the end of the meal, diners were presented with 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, with 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, right).

    Yes, I think that Lou should have a "research trip" for the next one. And I should be his escort since I discovered it . Maybe you can come as the "camera man" or the "microphone holder" or something . . . I dunno . . . Lou, what do you do during these "research trips?" And are we on?

    Haunted Mansion Events

    Hey kids! I must say I'm pleased and surprised to see my original article still being read all these years later (yes, I'm the Scott who wrote the piece for Doombuggies). To those folks who are interested in participating in another such event, Disney just formally announced a 40th Anniversary Bash (but unfortunately, I can't post a link here as my post count's too low).

    If it's 1/10 as cool as all the other Mansion dinners, it's sure to rule! And yeah, there will probably be another article about this one also...*grin*

    So once again, thanks for the kind words about my article!

    Don't you need someone to accompany you for those things? Can I please go with you???? I'll clear it with DH and be there at a moments notice. I promise to be a very cute and fun escort (in the platonic sense )! Plus I have some writing skills. I can even help with the article! Yes?

    Well, ANYTHING is possible and the event's a ways away, so...*grin* I don't know much good I'll be to ya, tho'. Disney doesn't comp anyone tickets and I have to buy mine every time they have an event. But options are a good thing and enthusiastic Mansion fans are good to have around, so let's see where everything is when we get closer to the event!
