HMH is fine and all but there are 2 reasons that I don't favor it. First is that it takes the original mansion out of comission for 5 months out of the year if you count the 2 months to set up and tear down. That IMO is way to long. Second is that some of the new affects get taken out such as the floating leota ball and the new bride.
Other then that, its a good show.
I must say, I don't care for the way HM closes for setup and teardown of the holiday overlay. I'm sure that some closure time would be needed for renovation (that probably ends up getting done during the setup and teardown times), but this practice really does take the HM offline for too long, I think.
For me, I love the overlay and I love the soundtrack but after 5 years or so, I'm kind of feeling done with it.
I'd love to see the HM in its original state for Halloween again.
My two cents.
This is an interesting thought. The overlay makes way more sense during the Christmas season than it does at Halloween. They really should close it in November to add the overlay. I would MUCH prefer the original HM for Halloween itself.
