At the recent Disneyana Convention, ConventionEars were treated to a sneak peek at the new Nightmare Before Christmas overlay of the Haunted Mansion. This presentation was enough to spark a major case of what I've termed "Mansion Envy" among the Walt Disney World contingent.
To make matters even worse, 1000 people were lucky enough to get tickets to the Nightmare Before Christmas Enchanted Haunted Evening. Guests at the October 3rd Merchandise Special Event will attend a panel discussion with Nightmare notable Tim Burton and Danny Elfman, as well as Haunted Mansion Holiday Show Designer Steve Davison. They will then ride the newly redone attraction, two days before it opens to the general public. 200 additional guests will attend the panel discussion, then enjoy dinner, (rumored to be at the Blue Bayou), and have a special, "Haunted" ride inside the Mansion.
Of course, no merchandise special event would be complete without, well, the merchandise. Most of the attendees received their pre-event packet yesterday, and got their first glimpse at the merchandise planned for the evening. Some Nightmare fans are going to go broke at the event. Others are really disappointed in the merchandise offering. All items are offered via the Random Selection Process, (RSP).
Below is a list of what will be available, with prices and edition sizes. Oh, and be sure to really look at the merchandise. With so many rumors flying around about what the mansion redo will contain, this is your first official look at what Steve Davison has in store for you. This should either answer some questions, or create a few dozen more.
