From Screamscape:

Disneyland is promoting a special 40th Anniversary Merchandise Event for the Haunted Mansion on 09/09/09. Tickets are quite a bit of coin for the event, but the teaser is very interesting, “The Plot Thickens. . . After five husbands and five untimely deaths, the Black Widow Bride of the Haunted Mansion will wed once more. Has she found her soul mate? Or will another groom meet his doom? Join us, Foolish Mortals, and we'll dig up the answers at our ghostly celebration that everyone's dying to attend.” They also mention that if you pre-register before the end of February you will get a “early demise” pin.

I think that sounds pretty interesting. I hope we'll be able to get some footage of the event when it happens!

OMG that sounds sooo very cool! I bet it is super expensive. The last HM event I heard of out there was around 200 beans a pop.

That's awesome! I wish they'd do stuff like that over here. The 13th anniversary for ToT "event" was poo. We registered online just to be able to ride ToT and RnRc for an hour after the park closed.

I guess it was kinda cool being able to ride umpteen times in a row without having to wait, but it would have been cooler if there was a little bit more involved.

So true. DL gets all the cool events. That is decent that you got to ride it a lot at the ToT event, but would have been cool if they had like special "elevator ghost" characters out and really themed it up.

For the ToT anniversary we must have ridden it about 8 times. I think we also rode Rock n Rollercoaster 5 times. We would have got in a lot more rides had it not been for the pre-show. I think they stopped the pre-show for ToT and just let everyone go through when it was closer to the end of the night.

We need more special AP events. :(

Okay. I know the pressure's on me to get some footage of this, but as much as I want to, I don't think anyone in my family would want to go, so I doubt I'll be going. It's probably very expensive too. I'm sure some footage of it will turn up somewhere. Thanks for the info, Kevin.

Is it me, or does that SHAG person's style look like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends meets the E-Surance commercials? :lol: I mean that in a good way, those are pretty neat.
