I was thinking about holiday overlays today and how WDW doesn’t get them anymore. I know there are those who feel passionately about whether or not Florida should ever get the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay at the Haunted Mansion. For the sake of this discussion, let’s just pretend for the moment that we all agree that the reasoning against it really is that shutting down such a high-profile attraction for two months a year (and altering it for several more) is bad for business (I know we don’t and won’t really agree on that, but we’ve had that discussion already).
So with the headlining E-ticket attractions off the table, wouldn’t it be a good idea to look at doing something special for less popular attractions? While missing The Haunted Mansion might arguably ruin lots of people’s rare or once-in-a-lifetime trip, there are lots of other attractions that wouldn’t have nearly as big an impact should they be shut down for periods of time, but conceivably could draw back the repeat visitors should they get a special holiday upgrade (this, I think, was why The Country Bear Jamboree was a great choice for this treatment).
That’s a long, wordy way of asking, what less popular attraction do you think might make for a good holiday overlay candidate?
