Especially if you go with a non-rider who "Accidentally" picks Fastpass for attractions they can't ride.

Fastpasses are now tied to the individual park ticket, and they take your photo at the gates now too.

No doubt crowds will pick right back up next week when the holiday decorations and overlays are in full-swing.

Speaking of overlays, so if I understand this correctly, the Halloween overlay of Mission Breakout happens as soon as the sun sets, right? And the regular version of the ride still operates during the day? If that's the case, then I'm gonna have to plan out grabbing Fastpasses for it accordingly.

I also read that Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Rockin Roadsters will get Halloween overlays too? Do they mean just the decorations or the rides will have new songs to dance along to?

^Yes, Mission Breakout will be two different experiences in one day. At a certain time, it will switch to the night time version.

As for the two Cars Land rides, the parks blog doesn't say to what extent the overlays will be, so we'll have to wait and see!

^ What I have found out, from Micechat.com

Luigi’s will become “Honkin Haul-O-Ween” with all new songs as well. Disney promises haunted versions of classic Italian festival songs with names like “Terror-antella” and “The Chop Top of Carsoli.”


And here's page to go to, with a lot of photos of newly Haul-O-Ween-ed CarsLand.
And I did read somewhere, Mater's attraction will get a new jamboree song, too.

I hope that WOC, maybe next year, gets involved in the Halloween season if the plan is to shift the Halloween party over to DCA. Some of the decorations have gone up at DCA, and they are pretty charming. It is rather impressive that they planned for GOTG to be part of the Halloween event as well.

Now that a few weeks have gone by here.... :wink:

Something to discuss:
If Disney actually built a third gate in the Anaheim area, what would the possibility be (and put the reality of permits, zoning, the public et al, to the side, for the moment), of them creating the exact same Gondola System they're currently building at WDW? And running it from the (eventual) Marvels Land, beside the ToT (and behind CarsLand) in DCA, to that third park, and back? Parking would also be at the other park, of course. But this would be a literal "Parks Slider", themed however they wished to present it.

It makes sense to me, for now, and definitely ups the 21st century way of mass transit, in a way Europe, Asia, and other continents/countries have done for years and years, lol. Universal did it with a train - why not Disney with above the ground (i.e. flying) travel? If the WDW system works well, they may consider it for the West Coast.

Or maybe not. :mickey:

A gondola station, would be easy to place in this possible/probable Marvels Land space.

The night time version, After Dark, is insane. There's so much airtime, I was hardly in my seat for a majority of the ride. At one point, it was hard to distinguish if we were being pulled up or down. I tried to get video of the new digital mapping effects on the outside of the building to post, but my phone bricked after vacation. They're very cool.
Tigga, please!
