Since we have not seen any HMH updates since the second year it was open, what would you like to see in the Mansion during the next overlay?
I know that quite a few people are not fans of the overlay but have fun with it! It could be completely random, just as long as it floats your boat!
Since I am a person only filled with bad ideas, what are yours?
There have been some smaller changes since the 1st and 2nd year
of the HMH. It's best to do this by year. I'm sure others here
can help fill in things that were added/deleted during the various years:
2001: HMH 1st year, new holiday overlay encompassing practically
every nook and cranny inside and outside the mansion.
+ Music Box Music from Phantom Manor at EuroDisneyland was transported to the outdoor queue. Jack O'Lanterns on hill behind Mansion, on Mansion and on fence surrounding mansion, Cobweb candelabras on
Mansion. Countdown Clock on front of HM
+ All new Narration voiced by Cory Burton and new soundtrack throughout attraction. Skeleton heads and branches in entry.
+ Breaking Stained glass windows in stretching room. Huge Jack Face instead of hanging dead guy.
+ Changing portatrait changed, Noel and HoHoHo Spiderwebs over the
2 busts at the end of hallway
+ 1st sighting of Scary Teddy, which replaces the Raven during the Holidays
+ Zero floating in endless hallwayand his pile of bones
+ Maneating plants and Wreath in the corridor of doors and sing
meniacal "Deck the Halls"
+ Madame Leota's 13 Days of Christmas and floating tarot cards,
chain and candle tree.
+ Gift floating out of sack, Zero floating above dinning table, Gingerbread
house, which is designed differently each year. Huge Mansion Tree with
Spiders moving up and down, skelleton head and Jack o'lanterns, The
library is revealed with a tree of books
+Giant Snake in attic, wrapped packages
+ Mansion covered with Snow, Huge curlycue hill with jack o'lanterns
covering the entire hill, lighting in time with the music. Audio animatronic
Jack and Zero greet us, 2 different bonedeer floating in two different
areas, 4 gigantic Jack o'lantern Angels, Singing Jack o'lanterns replace
the singing busts, a mummy tree, Lock Shock and Barrel flats at end
replace the 3 Hitchhiking Ghosts.
+Little Leota replace by Sally as she watches Sandy Jack fly across moon.
+ Christmas Scarols are prominently displayed and heard in the queue.
+ The major change is the musical score (however the narration poem
remains the same) The musical score inside the mansion now includes songs from the movie.(Lock up the sandy claws, primarily)
+ Oogie Boogie invades HMH. Oogie Boogie makes his appearance
outside and inside the Mansion in several different places and forms,
the largest is the audio animatronic Oogie and his wheel of misfortune
now replace the plywood Lock Shock and Barrel.
+ no major changes, with exception the new design for the ginger
bread house on the table.
+several of the oogie Boogies do not appear this year.
+just the change in the gingerbread house design
+ the "HoHoHo" and "Noel" on the cobwebs in front of the
moving bust at the end of the changing portrait hallway,
now light up in red and green.
+ Best Gingerbread house yet!!! include moving arms of
monsters trying to tear apart the gingerbread house from
+ New effect for the Sandy Jack flying in front of the moon
(by the little Sally on the upramp, exiting the mansion)
+ Christmas Scarols no longer played in queue
I'm sure I've missed several of the changes, but these are
the major ones I recall.

Re: Your Idea for Future HMH Overlay
I vote for putting the Mayor of Halloweentown in there somewhere! Preferably animated, saying something similar to the quote below...
i say put him next to the coffin in the conservatory and have his head spin around
I think they should move Boogie to Leota's room it could be his turn table with Sandy Claws on the table
for this scene change the 12 days of christmas tarot cards to tarot cards with pictures of santa clawz in differn't forms of torture so to indicate that oogie is trying to decide what form of torture to use on santa clawz
