So I filled out the survey to express interest in the Haunted Mansion Room for 1 More event (before I saw the price tag) because I knew I'd be on property then anyway. Today I got an email informing me that I hadn't been selected to the guest list, but there was some very interesting info at the bottom of the email:
We appreciate your enthusiasm to volunteer to join us for the Room for 1 More Haunted Mansion Event, but our ghost hosts are deeply saddened to say that you have not been selected to purchase a ticket for this event. As you can imagine, there were many more requests for plots than we were able to fulfill. You are, however, included on the waiting list. Should not all of the foolish mortals choose to purchase their tickets, names from the waiting list will be emailed as space allows.
Questions may be directed to the spirited team at Walt Disney Event Services by calling 407.827.7600 or emailing to [email protected].
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Walt Disney World® Resort on Saturday, October 1st at Magic Kingdom® Park.
So it sounds like there will be some sort of official 40th anniversary celebration in the MK on the actual 40th. Does anyone know anything about this? Anyone heard anything about this? AFAIK this is the only official source that's even mentioned something like this.
