I hope it turns out better than Santa Kong did for USH! :lol:

WDW sells itself as a vacation (especially during the holidays), so upping their seasonal offerings should only further help them bring more locals in.

^ But I'm not sure that's what they're targeting? Their business seems much more set in the families that visit every decade from all over the earth (who I'm sure they make more money on per person/day) than the locals.

Personally I'd love to see seasonal stuff, but I'm not sure it serves the mail market that I think WDW is targeting.

Oh, I really hope so! I'm sure there will be a lot of eyes on this one to see if a seasonal make-over of an attraction will go over well. I totally understand why WDW doesn't do it, but I'd love to see Haunted Mansion Holiday here!


Why doesn't WDW do it? You have me curious now.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I think the majority of people who visit WDW have already planned their vacations regardless of what the holiday offerings are. It certainly enhances their experience and may help entice them to return next holiday season, but I doubt there are many people out there who are now planning trips to WDW because this was announced.

On the flip side, locals (or anyone in range to make it a day trip/mini vacation), might be enticed to go back to the park because it is something new for them.

I love donkeys more than me.

I'm timing my next visit to coincide with the holiday season, even as an "occasional" visitor the seasonal offerings add a lot to the experience. But they probably don't give the same boost to attendance at WDW as DLR, where the APs will turn up in their thousands to experience a new sandwich!

Kind of stinks Jingle Cruise wasn't as great as we imagined.. at least the free food made up for that.

I've gone pantless!

Yeah, the Jingle Cruise definitely looked underwhelming. I'm always amazed at how awesome the castle projections look.
