Those heading to Disney World this weekend have many chances to celebrate Nightmare Before Christmas in person. Not only does Jack serve as the Master of Scaremonies for the evening fireworks display but you can also queue up to meet with him and Sally during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
On the West Coast? Head over to Disneyland for a ride on the Burton-inspired Haunted Mansion Holiday. Each Halloween through Christmas the Haunted Mansion gets a Halloween Town makeover where you’ll encounter Jack, Sally, Zero, Oogie Boogie and the rest of the gang. Or pop over to the neighboring Disney California Adventure where Oogie Boogie casts an ominous glow over the theme park gates.
In addition, Tim Burton is currently holding an interesting exhibition in Vegas. Check out these details from his official Facebook page here:
