    Didn't WDI or TDA at one time have an idea for a Screaming overlay?

    I wonder if they could completely cover the two sounds tubes and add a special effect for Halloween

    There was a rumor a while ago around the time when the DCA improvements were announced that it was getting a villains overlay. Not sure if it was credible or not

    Yes I remember, but It was more than a rumor. When TDA and Burbank where in the mood to get guests involved in the DCA change and opened up the preview center they also released several conceptual ideas and a couple showed a Pier themed to villain characters and another themed to an all toy story theme.

    I remember really loving the original idea for the northern side of the Pier which included a tiered viewing area with lots of rockwork and tidel pools down at water level. Those pools would have been a water play area during day and standing viewing at night.
    That's when Mermaid was going to be located where goofy skyscool is and would have been themed as a seaside cliff with water running down from it and a stream going under the parade route and connecting to the rockwork by the bay

    If there can be a Little Mermaid and Marvel funny book space ride in DCA, there can be a Nightmare Before Christmas ride. You all know where I'm going with this.

    There was a post on TheNeverlandFiles (RIP) about a spookhouse like attraction themed to NBC for Paradise Pier. I miss that site

    Might as well do that. They sell the merchandise all year round and if it's as popular as everyone claims and they're trying to draw more people to DCA, there you go.

    That's actually not a bad idea. The NBC IP does seem crazy popular after 20 years!!!!. I bet a ride themed to this all year would always do well. Half the merchandise at the resort seems related to NBC already, so it must sell well. Then the Haunted Mansion could avoid all the down time, and you don't need to miss the regular version if you come to the park from August through January.

    Or, being Disney, you keep both up and sell twice the NBC merch.

    Holiday crowds during non-holiday times this year with massive lines for Haunted Mansion have proven that the classic version is still mega popular as long as Disneyland is really packing them in. I feel bad for the cast members trying to manage the lines wrapping around that fountain and constantly having to tell people to keep moving. Stupid guests.

    So nothing this year? No Halloween fireworks at all? I guess at least DL won't lose night entertainment on Friday nights during the party this year.
