It’s a Halloween double feature from Mousetalgia. Save some time to listen to two great episodes to one of our favorite podcasts. There’s no turning back now . . .

Knott’s Halloween Haunt and Mickey’s Halloween Party

As the spooking season gets under way, Mousetalgia compares Knott’s venerable “Haunt” with Disneyland’s “Mickey’s Halloween Party” to contrast the two extraordinarily popular seasonal events. While Knott’s features scares, mazes, and entertainment for mature audiences (Elvira is back!), Disneyland focuses on characters, atmosphere, and candy, candy… and more candy. Is either attraction better or worse? Do the audiences overlap? You be the judge as we look at the features of both events. Also, ABC’s fall lineup is garnering praise as well as jeers – Kristen shares a few thoughts about some of the new shows. Plus, a listener reviews a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland – and more.


Ghostly Adventures by Disney, Halloween history

Are you brave enough? Find out in this episode of Mousetalgia, when we take you on an Adventures by Disney trip to Scotland and chase down myths, legends, and spine-tingling ghost stories. Follow in the footsteps of the Pixar team that created Brave on a trip to Scotland, and learn about what makes an Adventures by Disney vacation unique in the world of traveling and touring. We also discuss Disneyland Paris and tips for enjoying that resort. Next, Kristen and Jeff give Halloween a Disney twist – Jeff by reporting on the history of the classic Halloween spook house, and Kristen by reading from a Mickey Mouse Club Magazine article on the origins of this bewitching season. Also, tips to help you give your Halloween party a little Disney magic; a listener takes another look at Knott’s Halloween Haunt – and more.
