Disneyland admission prices – how does the increased cost reflect on the park and its community? We share some thoughts from Disney expert Jeff Kurtti, and share our own reactions to the recent annual pass price increases at the Disney parks. Plus, Mousetalgia reports on Halloween Time – the tricks, the treats, and the differences from years prior. From Pumpkin Flan to Banana Fritters, we discuss which seasonal treats were worth trying, and which didn’t pass Kristen’s taste test. From fall-flavored drinks to Halloween-themed baked goods, Kristen reports on the culinary offerings, including the Mystical Spirits Dinner at the Blue Bayou restaurant during Mickey’s Halloween Party, which had organizational challenges. Does the price point work? Kristen details the food, the entertainment, and tells whether or not the chaotic check-in experience ruined the night. Also – goat adoptions, easy Halloween costumes, a Cadaver Dans performance… and is Pop Secret a not-so-secret flop? Plus, remembering Kevin Corcoran’s best roles, and Jeff will be speaking about the Haunted Mansion at MouseCon in Corcord, CA on Nov. 15. Visit mouse-con.com for details.
