    There has to be more Halloween decor coming....right?

    Man I was kinda very disapointed this weekend with the offical Halloween season kicking off and got my hopes up pretty high to see the expansion and more decor I been reading so much about throughout the year. Well to me, it just seemed like they did the opposite and took away most of the decorations instead. I mean it was more like "try to spot the pumpkins". So I know the chances are slim to nill but I sure hope they will be adding more through the month of Sept. Because if not, then why even do the special event in Anahiem? Even at CA where the Halloween Parties to be held didn't get dressed up to be Halloweeny enough. But for me this Halloween year wont be a loss since I will be attending WDW's Halloween Time in 3 weeks for our honeymoon so least I have that in my pocket to enjoy better Hallween decorations.

    Re: There has to be more Halloween decor coming....right?

    I agree. All the Halloween is up front in both parks, while the lands seem largely undecorated. I think a lot of people will be disappointed.

    Disneyland's "Halloween Time" billboards are everywhere, yet the parks don't really do much for Halloween. Haunted Mansion Holiday is long in the tooth, and Golden Screams hardly justifies a trip to the park. Candy corn Acres, while cute, is just a tiny little area in the Sun Hub at DCA.

    If they are going to advertise Halloween, they really need to do it on a similar scale as they do Christmas.

    Re: There has to be more Halloween decor coming....right?

    I didn't realizze how long in the tooth Haunted Mansion Holiday was, until this year. Lines on opening weekend were almost non-existant (then again it poured rain on Sat).
    Now, as to the haloween decorations, I didn't see any previous years decorations but I think the Haloween decorations this year were fine...and possibly a little much for my taste. I can only take so much orange, and I personally would have been fine had they just done up the orange bunting on Main St. and left all that silly pumpkin stuff out. Just my opinion and personal preference, I thought the pumpkin stuff/Candy Corn acres was kind of tacky looking, and thrown together.
    Just because it's a holiday, doesn't mean it needs an overlay, what's next Disney's Valentine's Day? Disney's Earthday Time?

    Well I guess if you want more halloween decorations you can expect places like knotts scary farm or universals horror nights these are halloween extremists. which sounds delightful.

    Well I did read somewhere that they are going to do some Day Of The Dead decorations at Rancho Del Zocalo ... or maybe I dreamed about that one.

    I think it'd be fun if they did a little something for all those unknown holidays around the year. More reasons to visit the park more often- to see what they did this time!

    Re: There has to be more Halloween decor coming....right?

    I mean I'm happy with all the decor and I'm so glad they are celebrating Halloween. But I just remembered through the year I been hearing more money going towards decorations and expanding into other lands. So got my hopes up high. I guess I should just expect this as the max they will do.
