I see that a number of us decided to check out the first day of Haunted Mansion aka Nightmare Before Christmas and the Halloween decorations ... in spite of the threat of rain. I see threads so far that show hollywood 1939, Singing Angel7242, Aniko, almandot and localdisnyfan were there with their super duper cameras. Also Darkbeer was there and he told me about the price increases (see his thread on that here):
Yesterday morning while looking at localdisnyfan's photos I made a spur of the moment decision and decided I HAD to go the park and see everything and go on mansion. So after work I headed on over.
Here are some of the photos I managed to take.
I arrived around 1:30 PM to lines that were non existent at the entrance.
The floral Mickey is really well done. The colors are more brilliant then what is showing up in this photo.
Here is a close in view of the flowers and pumpkins used:
Off on the sides are these floral jack-o-lanterns
Some general shots around Main Street
Some of the characters were out in their Halloween costumes
All along Main Street they have jack-o-lanterns decorating the windows and balconies along with Fall flowers.
Some merchandise in one of the store windows
All around the partners statue are jack-o-lanterns representing the different lands. These are lit at night but I forgot to go back and see them. Hopefully someone who can take night photos can get some good shots of them sometime.
Tarzan represents Adventureland
Jack represents New Orleans Square
Woody represents Frontierland
Poo represents Critter Country
Roger Rabbit represents Toon Town
Tinkerbell represents Fantasyland
and finally Buzz represents Tomorrowland
There were a couple of children, probably brother and sister, who were dressed to the hilt with makeup and everything. Everyone was taking pictures of them cause they were so darn cute
Fall decoration in Frontierland:
It was a beautiful day. This was taken around 2:30 PM and the clouds had not started to come in ... yet.
Next up will be the mansion. Gonna take a break right now
