FIRST LOOK: 2016 Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House at Disneyland Park

We also shared a first look at this year’s Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house at Disneyland park. Gingerbread houses have graced the ballroom scene of Haunted Mansion Holiday for the past 15 years. Visit Rachel’s original story to see the amazing details behind this year’s gingerbread house.

Here are some of the other stories we worked on this week.


  • One of my favorite memories was watching my son’s face light up the first time he saw the parade and then each time he watched it again. He said his favorite is Pete’s dragon and the spinning snails.

  • This has always been my favorite parade. I remember it as a kid. I’m sad to see it leave. It is my wife’s favorite as well. She will miss Pete and Elliott. ?

  • The Main Street Electrical Parade was a highlight of our first Disney World vacation. We’ll get to see it one last time on our trip that starts at the end of this week! Can’t wait!!!

  • Is any watching can’t find the link

  • I can’t find it.

  • my favorite float is probably also the (fire-breathing!!) dragon! I saw the parade the most times when I was living in Paris, when the park first opened there as EuroDisney…. I was actually in the park on opening day there! (And that was my SECOND day in the park…. since I managed to get in with a “cast member family/friend” invitation BEFORE the official opening day!) 🙂

  • I heard that one of Michael Jackson’s favorite treats was driving one of the spinning snail floats (incognito!!) in the Main Street Electrical Parade. 😉

  • (and BTW I was actually the first person through the turnstiles on opening day of EuroDisney… but didn’t get logged as the official first person inside, because they picked the first person past the train tracks instead!!! Sigh.)

  • Loving the parade! 7 Dwarfs are adorable!!!

  • Love Elliott!!

  • We loved Cinderella!!! And Snow White

  • So happy to see the parade tonight! Can’t wait for Captain Hook! Watching tucked up in bed in the UK 🙂

  • We had really happy times waiting and watching the electrical parade

  • I’ve got to say I was very DISAPPOINTED. Past livestreams have had had plenty of host time pre- and post-show. This one INTERRUPTED the actual event. Please, in the future, let us experience the event as close to IRL as possible.

  • Thank you for the live stream, I so enjoyed seeing the Parade again! I think I like the spinning bugs the most, the kids love them! I also was disappointed in too much talk and too little parade, however. Nice people, but I hated going away from the parade in the middle and missed some favorite floats that were never showed! Rather have had the talk as a post show.

  • I agree with Donna McDuffie-mostly talk not much parade. I will be there in Dec. too late for me to see it in person for one last time. I was really really looking forward to watching the parade and not people talking.
