    Come to DLR where Jack and Sally greet guests all day every day from September 13 - January 6 right in front of the Haunted Mansion. No party ticket or MagiCuff required!

    Hands down, Jack and Sally were the absolute best character interaction my kids have ever experienced. We met them at DL a couple years ago, waited in line for over an hour because no one could say exactly when they were coming out, and so totally enjoyed them!

    As for the Haunted Mansion overlay, if you have never seen it, don't knock it. It is incredible, like being completely immersed in "Nightmare Before Christmas." It was beautiful and so well done that it was hard to be annoyed about the original being altered.

    Now if only they'd get Zero to fly before the fireworks . . .

    ...he does at Disneyland. ;) That show is exclusive to their hard-ticket Halloween Party though, and it's pretty much the only highlight in comparison to WDW's superior MNSSHP.

    In 2009, no hard ticket was required. It gave us all goosebumps to see Zero fly!

    Yup, we had one year of sweet freedom. I still can't bring myself to buy a ticket for the party.

    I didn't mind it when APers could get a ticket for about $37. But they've taken away so much and nearly doubled the price!

    The good thing is we can still ride Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, and the regular firework show and parade are better than the Haloween ones. When you look at it that way, you're not really missing anything.

    No - then you'd have some rooms Nightmare-themed and some normal, which would be nonsensical to say the least.

    But then you would have rooms finished when riding while other rooms were still the same, would look a bit odd plus guests wouldn't get it.

    Not to sound naughty but technically if you are there during a day when they do the MNSSHP can't you just stay inside the park? I know they have wristbands and check them but if you avoid the rides or shops you should be able to just sorta blend in. So I feel that if you are there just to view the parade/show you should go unnoticed.

    Not to mention it would take even longer to install if it was only done during third shifts.

    The last couple of years it seems they have gotten more vigilant about checking for wristbands. I've seen cast members stopping people just walking around and double-checking to make sure that people have them.

    At Disneyland they wander around New Orleans Square during the Haunted Mansion Holiday season. They just seem to wander up and down staircases, through alleys, and then pose in front of the Mansion, riffing with people the whole time.


    They keep it very casual and natural at Disneyland, so it will be interesting to see how they play this at WDW.

    I bet you anything the only reason Jack and Sally haven't made it to WDW sooner is due to their inability to be photographed by PhotoPass.

    Really? Due to some silly contractural legal thing?

    And lawyers wonder why they have a reputation somewhere between a used car salesman and a congressman.:rolleyes:

    Characters are not allowed as much rope to improv at WDW as they are at DL, I would expect love & shove
