    Wikipedia article on "HalloWishes"

    I've done a complete article on Wikipedia on the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Haloween Party fireworks show:

    Wikipedia: HalloWishes

    Critiques and comments are welcome.

    Looks good, though Corey Burton didn't do Hallowishes as far as I know. He REALLY sounds like Paul Frees, and this guy doesn't. And you don't mention that the story of the show is basically that the various Disney villains are going trick-or-treating to the Haunted Mansion, hence the doorbells throughout the soundtrack.

    I do believe Burton does the voice of the Ghost Host as he has offically replaced Paul Frees (as of 2006) as Master Gracie. Another soundalike was used for the safety message.

    But he didn't do HalloWishes as far as I know. Corey did the spiel only for Haunted Mansion Holiday...

    Whoever did it - and don't they just use sound clips for their vaults ? - just wanted to say great write-up. Now then, how about the Parade and the Headless Horseman? Will be there October 31st - have got my tickets. Look for the Wicked Witch of the West escaped from the Great Movie Ride!
    Now I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic !

    Not gonna lie... it kinda sounds like Kevin Michael Richardson (Gantu in Lilio nad Stitch) to me as the Ghost Host but I was never sure. It doesn't sound like Corey Burton.

    Well, you're looking at 'im, hon. The only sound clips that were used were of Madame Leota, Thurl Ravenscroft on the first verse of "Grim Grinning Ghosts" and the hostess saying "Hurry back!" post-show. Everything else was done in Hollywood.

    As for the parade and Headless Horseman, that will be in a future writeup on the event on the Wiki down the road.

    Re: Wikipedia article on "HalloWishes"

    No offence, well written article and all, but is there a place for an article of a spin-off of a fireworks display at a theme park on Wikipedia? That place is turning into a fan site for everything faster then you can say "The various incarnations of Comic Book Guy and his Natural Habitats".

    The purpose of Wikipedia is to provide as much information as possible on any topic anyone could ever wish to explore. On of the off-chance that someone needed information on Hallowishes, as I'm sure many people will, this article will be available to that person. Physical encyclopedias obviously have space limitations, but wikipedia does not. In my eyes, the more the merrier as far as articles go!

    Right. I might make an article request for Gordan Ramsay's cat then. I'd like information on it.

    Nice work! That information will be very helpful for guests wishing to visit the Magic Kingdom during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

    I'm a Wikipedia user myself and I just put categories on as well as corrected one of your voice credits (Got Little Leota's voice actress off quite a bit there).
    Do you suppose you'd be willing to contribute to http://disney.wikia.com
    It really needs the help and the more people working on it the merrier.
