A couple of weeks ago I read a thread on here from someone asking if anyone knew if the Halloween party would be at DL or DCA this year. The majority of the comments didn't know but seemed to want to keep the party at DL. One in particular eluded to the fact that the writer didn't think that there was anything that could really be done in DCA that would be good for Halloween on the level of Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion Holiday, or Halloween Screams fireworks.
I totally disagree with that comment. This is the one time where DCA's generic visuals may be it's strength. True, the last time I went to the Halloween party 4 years ago it was pretty ho-hum. But it was also only like 20 bucks. That leads me to creating this thread. Not so much a feasibility thing (well, sort of) but more of a brainstorming one. If you were going to spend 50 bucks (about the price of a full days admission to any park) to go to this evening only event, what would you like to see if the party were moved over to DCA??? How would you like to see the parks and rides transformed??
I myself would love to see the ToT over lay from 2007 return. The bat arch, the storm and lightning, the decorations inside. It was awesome!! But lately ToT is sort of a yawn at Halloween.

Disney has two usable buildings in the Hollywood Backlot. I would love to see a Disney themed maze a la Knott's Scary farm or Universal Horror Nights. Obviously not as scary, but think of what Disney could do with all it's Imagineers. Perhaps something where we enter the haunted house of the classic Mickey cartoon The Lonesome Ghosts (YouTube it since I'm not sure if I can link to it on here). Heck, they could even run the cartoon in line so guests would know what to expect.
Is there any way to run the California Screamin' trains in reverse??? If so... How cool would that be?? Reserve 2 trains for backwards operation only and wheel them out for the Halloween party??? Maybe change the soundtrack and completely enclose the scream tunnels. I guess you could even incorporate projections.
What are your ideas????

I guess this is a better video of ToT. LOL. It even has the bat projections.
