    ATrip Back in Time....October 2005 Trip!

    Came across these photos lately on a disk and thought I'd share them....the occasion was the last ever Haunted Mansion Holiday event, and the only one I attended.....still divided on the attraction, but the event was worth it. The trip also coincided with Gay Days, so those two ensured I met up with a lot of people I knew there for either event....so enjoy a peek back in time and some unique photos! And also, as a disclaimer, all Mansion flash ride photos were taken at about midnight, with empty doombuggies all around, to spare the retinas of others...

    EDIT: This was in fact October, 2004....my bad...




    Awesome, very friendly pair of Asian tourists I ran into a few times










    A rare sight...a photo with me in it at DL!! If you can figure out which one I am...heh.....like Where's Waldo, but a whole lot less fun.






















    Expedition: Atlantis anyone?






    Some awesome HM design models...

    And now over to the Mansion....


    One of the NBC characters that was wandering around the extra ticket event...






















    Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for looking!

    Are you sure these were from Oct 05? I ask only because the Castle was all covered up...and I seem to recall it that way in late 2004 for the 50th decor and refurb that was going on........but I could be wrong.

    It could have been 2004....my brain gets fuzzy two years in the past heh or so. I thought it was 2005 due to thinking the first Haunted Mansion Holiday event was in 2001, and I went to the forth and final one they held....but I could be wrong on that as well.

    It's cool. I just figured with the 50th in Full Swing in 2005, they wouldn't have covered up the Castle as it was in your photos - and I do recall that they covered it up in 2004.....

    Not a big deal. Enjoyed your photos nonetheless.

    Thanks for the kind words, and indeed, you are right...it was 2004, I just had a brain lapse for a second heh.

    I'd be all for having more Halloween specific characters out in the park definitely, at the very least...

    I agree. We were there in Oct 2005 and the Castle was most definitely not under wraps.
