Disney Haunted Mansion Trick or Treat Up Special After Hours Event, Guided Imagineer Graveyard Tours, Halloween Fun – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We had a fantastic time last night at the Haunted Mansion Trick or Meet Up (also called the Trick or Treat Up) after hours at the Magic Kingdom! We met at Blizzard Beach (below, left), where we were transported by Disney Cruise Line buses to the backstage area behind Splash Mountain. It was first-class all the way! The Haunted Mansion was brilliantly lit (below, right). 

 

Imagineer Jason Surrell (below, left) talked a little about the Haunted Mansion inside The Hall of Presidents. He’s quite the comic anytime he’s in front of an audience, and a lot of fun to listen to (as you’ll hear in the video). He answered a variety of questions from the audience, giving out Imagineering pins to guests who had a question chosen. Haunted Mansion prints were shown on a board in front of the room (below, right). The most interesting question to us was probably why we don’t have a Haunted Mansion Holiday, a wonderful attraction at Disneyland. The answer is what we expected: Disneyland is a locals park, and Walt Disney World is less so.

 

Video #1 – Haunted Mansion Imagineering Talk by Jason Surrell, Trick or Treat Up Walt Disney World 9/29/11 – Imagineer (and comic) Jason Surrell talks about the Haunted Mansion at the Trick or Meet-Up at the Magic Kingdom last night!

Mickey and Minnie were in the Halloween finery, we enjoyed being able to meet them again (below, left). There were several candy stations, we were given Halloween Party bags of candy that we filled to the top (below, right). We love the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, it was nice to have a smaller version of it here!

 

We were treated to different goodies, including chocolate desserts (below, left) and what looked like bloodshot eyes (below, right). The eyes were cheesecake bites!

 

Dr. Facilier (below, left) strikes a pose for us. There were quite a few character opportunities! A Haunted Mansion maid walks her dog, letting us know that the pup is in potty training (below, right).

 

Imagineer Peter Carsillo led our tour through the Haunted Mansion interactive queue (below, left and right). It was quite informative, even though we’d been in it so many times to photograph and videotape! One thing we learned was that the caretakers footprints (and his dog’s pawprints) are seen in the sidewalk inside the emergency exit. There is a doggy door we’d never noticed either!

 

Video #2 – Haunted Mansion Imagineering Interactive Queue Tour, Disney World Trick or Treat Up 9/29/11 – Imagineer Peter Carsillo takes us through a detailed tour of the Haunted Mansion Queue, with some details that we didn’t even know! This was during the Haunted Mansion Trick-or-Meet Up Event.

The Dagger Dans sang to everyone (below, left), and we even had a special ride by the Headless Horseman (below, right).

 

Donald gets on one knee for Daisy (below, left) at the end of the night. Mickey and Minnie wave goodbye to all the tweet-up guests!

 

One of the most special parts of the evening? Seeing Cinderella Castle (below, right) lit up with it’s Dreamlights! We received a print at the end of the night, to remember the evening by (below, right).

  

Video #3 – Cinderella Castle Dream Lights Testing 2011 Magic Kingdom Haunted Mansion Tweet-Up 9/29/11 – We were at the Haunted Mansion tweet-up tonight, and the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights were testing! The Castle Dream Lights will be part of the Christmas season offerings starting in November.
