Hidden Disneyland Details - Sparky's Empty Grave from Frankenweenie

Every Autumn, Disneyland's Haunted Mansion undergoes a whimsical transformation, becoming the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Inspired by Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Madame Leota and the mansion's 999 haunts open their eerie estate to the quirky ghouls from Halloween Town. Beginning in 2001, Jack Skellington has hosted the annual holiday overlay, a mishmash of the otherwise mismatched Halloween and Christmas holiday seasons.

A new Disney Detail has been added to this year's Haunted Mansion Holiday. In anticipation of Tim Burton's latest Disney project, the stop-motion animated Frankenweenie (2012), a special grave and marker have been added to the pet cemetery in the mansion's front garden.

Though empty gravesites may not seem strange in a pet cemetery, or more specifically - Pet Sematary. This empty grave and bone shaped cross are tributes to Sparky, the four-legged star of Burton's Frankenweenie, which was released in theaters on October 5, 2012.

Hidden Disneyland Details - The Three Marionettes

As Disneyland guests exit Pinocchio's Daring Journey, they pass by an often overlooked window display. Featured in a little workshop-inspired vignette are three marionettes, Pinocchio, a girl in a green dress and an unpainted wooden figure.

Probably added during Fantasyland's 1983 refurbishment, the three marionettes are meant to symbolize Disneyland. Pinocchio, the star of Walt Disney's 1940 animated feature, is a reminder of Disneyland's storied past. The doll in the green dress is a dressed like a Fantasyland Cast Member. The Cast Member marionette symbolizes the present day and the people who make Disneyland such a happy place. The unfinished marionette represents the infinite possibilities in Disneyland's future.

TRON {easter eggs}

We sat down to watch the original TRON released in 1982. To our surprise there is a Hidden Mickey in the film!

 

About 3/4 into the movie when the Solar Sailor is gliding across the grid, look for Mickey in the landscape!

 

An added surprise! On the bridge of Sark's battle cruiser there is a diagram. On the right you'll see and hear Pac-Man, "womp womp!" ;)
