I don't know. Kind of weird, but I guess since Disneyland serves many more local visitors than Disney World, they need to do things like this...

Disneyland unveils Halloween theme for Space Mountain, fireworks show

Disneyland will add a “haunted” overlay to Space Mountain and a fireworks “spooktacular” for the Halloween season, theme park officials said.

The “Halloween Time” event, which runs from Sept. 25 through Nov. 1, is included in the price of admission to the Anaheim theme park.

The “Ghost Galaxy” Space Mountain overlay, which originally premiered at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2007, features a new soundtrack and ghostly and ghoulish projections inside the darkened roller coaster building, according to Screamscape.

The Halloween-themed fireworks show, hosted by “Master of Scaremonies” Jack Skellington of “Nightmare Before Christmas” fame, will include nods to Disney villains.

Many of those villains — Cruella de Vil (”101 Dalmatians”), Captain Hook (”Peter Pan”) and Queen of Hearts (”Alice in Wonderland”) — will also be wandering the theme park, signing autographs and passing out treats.

Across the way at Disney’s California Adventure, “Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party” will run on Oct. 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 and 28-31. The separate-admission event — which includes games, music and a Disney character parade — lets costumed children trick-or-treat throughout the park.

MiceAge broke the news on both the Space Mountain overlay and Halloween fireworks over the past week.

Hmm. I dunno. TWO Mansion overlays? This is a first. Glad to see NBC is getting some spotlight. But uh, bring it here. But I know MKs budget is rolled up in Fantasyland 2.0 (or is it 3.0?)

It's probably very similar, if not an exact clone, to the Ghost Galaxy layover that runs in Hong Kong. If WDW were to do this, now is the time to do the prep work for this since Disneyland will have to close Space Mountain down for most of September. The thinking is that once the prep work is done, the time for switching the layover out on Space Mountain is very short if they decide to offer this in future years.
