    Haunted mansion holiday 2013

    So I heard that some things were going to be changed for the Haunted Mansion Holiday 2013. Does anyone know what that is that they are changing? If they haven't/won't tell anything that's fine.
    I'm going this year, and I would like to be in on everything like what kind of parties their having, what kind of special releases their having and stuff like that.

    I haven't heard anything - but they do change the gingerbread house in the ballroom every year. They usually unveil it and have an article/photos on it on the Disney website...and it's always a work of art. That's one expected change you can look forward to seeing.

    Yeah! I know that they change that every year
    This was on the Wikipedia, so I'm just curious what it means...
    "On September 13, 2013 (Friday the 13th) the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland will open in celebration of its 13th anniversary outfitted with new effects and set pieces."
    I'm very curious to know what the new effects and set pieces are....

    Well, Wikipedia's not a trusted source for anything...so until Disney (or a reliable source) says something, take it with a grain of salt.

    There is supposed to be a Villains party on September 13, 2013 as part of Limited Time Magic. Not sure if that involves the Haunted Mansion, but the dancing trees from the Sing Along Songs video would be SWEEEEEEET!!
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    I doubt you can expect much, first of all, they started decking out the Haunted Mansion in 2001, not 2000, so 2013 would be the 12 year not the 13th year. That would be the first indicator that nothing major is going to happen. Now, they could possibly do something because it is 2013, ending in "13" but I think that would be a stretch. They change certain elements every year, not just the gingerbread house, slight changes, so it's always slightly different. I wouldn't be keeping your hopes up for something major though.

    Actually, that's quite the opposite... I was actually really hoping that nothing major was changed! haha!

    Someone needs to go change that Wikipedia page then! I remember I've been once because I have to fly there, and It was back in 2011. But, I do want to go back this year.
    September 13th is Friday the 13th, and that's when it opens, and then it is 2013, so maybe they might do something involving the number "13" inside, but like I said, I'm really hoping that nothing too big get's changed.....

    Not quite sure what you mean by sing along video, but I know that that's the singing tree from The Nightmare Before Christmas...

    This year marks the 20th anniversary of The Nightmare Before Christmas. I wouldn't be surprised if the DLR did something special to mark the occasion.

    Yes, 2001 was the 1st year for Haunted Mansion Holiday, and that does in fact make 2013, the 13th year that Jack will Deck the Haunted Mansion Halls.

    WDW does have a special pin event for 9-13-13, on their events calendar, but not for DL Anaheim. At the recent Tiki room event, they did have a table displaying some of the future pin releases for 2013, and this did include some pins scheduled for release on 9-13-13 at DL.com

    Re: Haunted mansion holiday 2013

    I'm hoping they do something a bit more substantial - for the first several years, the opening of the Holiday overlay was an event as everyone flooded the ride seeing what's new from year to year.

    Then the changes became much less substantial or noticeable. I haven't actually gone on the overlay the last two years for that reason. I'm hoping this is a decent modification, as it'd make it worth putting back on the 'worth dealing with' list.
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    I have no idea, Vanitas. Hopefully if there are any changes, they're improvements. I love the Holiday overlay.

    I know right??? It's my all time favorite movie!
    This may sound like a lie, but it's the truth i promise: two years ago, I was sick on the week of Halloween (the flu) and I decided to sit down and watch the Nightmare before christmas that entire week to memorize it. I watched it 3 times a day for 7 days (21 times) and so now, to this day, I know it from beginning to end....

    I'm sure they will have new pin releases (I REALLY hope so! ) but I don't know if it will be a day or not....

    Yeah, as long as they don't take out my favorite parts
