This special "limited time event" at Disneyland was a total joke, in my opinion! I had read in a few columns that Disney had been working on this for nearly a year to make it really exciting. NOPE!
They set up a dance floor in front of the train station in Town Square, had a live DJ spinning top 40 dance music, with special lighting effects from behind. Plus, they had some photo set-ups for a few Disney Villains near the flag pole area.
Please tell me how ALL THIS (which wasn't much) took nearly a year to come up with? This entire set up they did is used for Grad Nights, Mickey's Halloween Party, and probably other events too. Infact, you can do all this (minus the photo-op with the Disney Villains) when you go to the Tomorrowland Terrace or the Mad T Party. And then there was the grid-lock in Town Square and the lack of cast members to assist with guests traffic.
For me, there was no "WOW FACTOR" at all with this event. No imagination was used to create something that could have easily been done for Friday the 13th and the villains. So what, they kept the Park open for an additional 13th hour (1am) so that guests could dance in front of the train station. Doesn't get more exciting than that, folks! (note sarcasm)
Please talk some sense into me the next time I think about wanting to do a special Disney event they host.
I will now get off my soapbox and breathe again, LOL!
