    If you could make Haunted Mansion Holiday better....

    What would you do? Honestly I would focus more on the queue line. I mean either at the entrance of where the tombstones are I would have a few actors dress up as "Dead Singing Carolers" who would sing the Haunted Mansion Holiday Scarolls that you hear being played over the speakers. Plus I would only have the singers come out during december (or whenever most other Disneyland carolers come out to sing in the park).

    What would you do to make the Haunted Mansion Holiday experience better?

    I was extremely angry when they turned off the fog in the queue line. The first or second year they had the fog coming from where the pumpkins on the hill were. Then they turned it off for some reason.

    I guess the only thing I would do is have more of the scarols - seems like they only do a few of them. Other than that, I think it is perfect!

    They also could add those purple lights they turn on during the special event. These are very simple changes.

    I agree. I bet people got headaches or nausiated though from the fog/dry ice.

    Destroy the Scarols.
    Return to the original soundtrack but leave out the scream-a-long element.
    Replace current "ghost will follow you home" things with Lock, Shock, Barrel.
    No music in the outdoor queue, but have fog and lighting at night.
    Have something less cardboard, more 3D at the Doombuggy loading station.
    Replace Jack's head in the stretching room with a full body Jack (a la Hopper in ITTBAB).
    Put some NBC characters to the graveyard.
    And...
    Flying reindeer skeletons please!

    It would be nice if they gave me a lunch break and two 15 min breaks daily. Standing at the exit with that wheel of fortune gets a bit tedious.

    A better Halloween focus. Maybe more of a transformation from Halloween to Christmas, instead of christmas in October. It's not really a Halloween makeover.

    Totally agree with the Lock, Shock and Barrel thing, that's been bugging me since day one. You'd think that would be their first impulse.

    The one in Tokyo has all these Sally AAs in there...why couldn't we have some in ours?

    Re: If you could make Haunted Mansion Holiday better....

    Good points made so far.
    I would bring on the fog with that eirie back-lighting.
    I would reintroduce the hidden Oogie Scavenger hunt.
    Put in some more L,S&B.
    Add flying skeleton reindeer hanging on the ceiling in the graveyard scene!
    I like the live scarolers idea, but what if they were just roaming the area? Not just the queue.
