What’s this? I’ve got all the scoop and I’m not going to make you wait any longer for the details on the “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” in Disneyland event taking place June 13-14, 2014, at the Disneyland Resort.

Jack Skellington and his Halloweentown gang are not satisfied with just taking over the Haunted Mansion for the holiday season. With thirteen years of Haunted Mansion Holiday behind them, Jack and his pals are looking to expand their presence throughout Disneyland park all year long. Join us as we take a peek into what things might look like if Jack and company could have their way. Could there be a nightmare in Disneyland park?

  • Hi, I have already registered and payed for this event. I wanted to buy some of the merchandise in the catalog, was I supposed to order it online before I attend , or can I purchase it at the event? What is RSP? ,and is there a form I can fill out prior to the event?

  • Hi there! Would you happen to know if you can trade vinylmation outside the event (still in the hotel but just near the registration) without paying the $90?


  • I haven’t registered only because I haven’t seen any of the merchandise. Will the event products be available soon to view?

  • Registration is tomorrow, yet I haven’t seen the Event Catalog. Is it posted somewhere?

  • also confused. so the $90 is to be able to BUY more merchandise later? does this give you entry into the park? a ride on the haunted mansion? a Q&A with people involved with the movie/ride overlay? I don’t think I understand what I’m paying $90 to register for. Hopefully not just a t-shit for early registration..

  • 90$ for the event and the park , or AP holder can go with out the 90$

    sincerly , confused fellow

    • @daniel @audrey – Hopefully I can help clarify it. The $90 does not include park admission or any special in-park experiences at this time.

      The event will have a trading area, special trading boards and activities, of course, the first opportunity to purchase the limited edition merchandise associated with the event, a meet/greet and signing opportunity with our artists, a silent auction experience, product showcase and commemorative gifts.

      I hope that helps.

  • Hi Michelle! I have never attended anything like this before. Is this similar to the Walt Disney World event (Imagination Gala) or is this much more low key? Will the trading boards be similar to how they worked at the WDW trading event last year? Really need information so I can start planning. :-) Thanks!!

    • Hi Kevin! It is similar to the trading event experience in Walt Disney World, however on a smaller scale. There will be trading boards, activities, artist signings, product showcases, etc.

  • What is the trading event at Walt Disney World this year?

    • Hi Terri! The theme for the 2014 Walt Disney World trading event is “The Imagination Gala: A Magic Carpet Event.” That event will take place September 5-7, 2014. I’ll be sharing more details on the event shortly.

      Terri, I posted information about the Walt Disney World Event today, so be sure to check it out.

  • What’s this?
    I can’t believe my eyes
    I must be dreaming
    Wake up, Jack, this isn’t fair
    What’s this?

    When will it be at WDW?

  • i hope me and my mom get in to this event.

  • Wonderful announcement, Michelle!

  • Only pins? any vinylmations?

    • Hey Cheryl! I think you will find that it will be mostly pins, but there may be some Vinylmation as well. We are still finalizing details, but the merchandise catalog and information should be available on or around the date of ticket sales.

  • Is this a “trading pin” merchandise event or will there be other types of Nightmare merchandise as well?

    • Gabriela, it is predominantly pins that will be released.

  • What does the $90 fee include?
    Is this strictly a merchandise event or will there be any special shows, parades, fireworks, etc for this event?

    • Hi Amanda, hopefully the information above will help a little as to what the event will entail. It is strictly a merchandise event.

  • Thank you for finally posting the info! Love the Event Logo, will love everything! Very excited for this summer’s event!

  • Will there be vinylmations available at this event as well? Or will this be a strictly pin event?

    • Jason, we’re still finalzing details, but I will try to keep you posted.
