Does this mean that HM won't be done up in Nightmare Before Christmas this fall? Or just that there won't be an "event" with a show and stuff? (I've never been to a DL event or seen HMH, but I'm going in October and was hoping to see HMH!)
I can understand why they might not want to do any of the HMH stuff this year. If tourists are coming to see the big 50th (you know Eisner's got his fingers crossed on this one!), and the "celebration" is lasting for the entire year, they might not want to change a classic attraction so drastically. I can see how tourists could feel slighted at missing the opportunity to see the original version of the HM.

I think that might be the case as well, but still, the thought of not having Jack deck the Halls this year is enough to make me CRAAAAAAZY.
I absolutely love the Haunted Mansion Holidays version and I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be there.
Dustysage or Al..... Where are you??? We need your insight and knowledge!!!!!!!!!!!!
I only hope we never lose sight of one thing... that it was all started by a mouse!
Well I am curious if they just cancelled the MARKETING EVENT this year... or if the budget for both the Event and the Overlay got piped into the celibration...
Al, Keven, Sue? We neen some clarification here... What's the smack?
I have heard this rumor pop up before. I think we were reassured that the HMH merchandising event is being cancelled, NOT the HMH overlay. The merchandising event is going to happen at WDW this year. They will be getting the HMH overlay for the first time.
I think that the overlay brings in too much money for them to cancel it. My son would be quite disappointed if they didn't let Jack come back for his yearly visit.
Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.
I thought I read somewhere that last year was the last time they do the HM Xmas overlay. I may be wrong..but i tought i read that somewhere. Oh well... yah i doubt theyll do it this year due to the 50th. Maybe some halloween stuff here and there but not the full blown one that theyve been having..
Sorry I'm not in the majority on this one. I've never like the HMH. Course, I'm not into the fetishes of stripes, zipper scars, and white face the way Tim Burton is...
I wouldn't shed a tear if it did go missing.
I have to agree with DisneySavor. I wasn't much of a fan of the overlay myself.
Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
I LOVE HMH! I love HM period and the overlay is awesome!!!! Merchandise event- who cares really- but I can't see them ditching the overlay. Why in the world would the 50th make any difference? The 50th is running for a year! A few months of HMH is only going to do better!
Would you expect them to ditch the Small World Holiday??? The 50th should not make any difference at all.
