Shag now or Shag Later Haunted Mansion 40th anniversary event (Aug 2009)
I headed out Sunday to celebrate the Mansion's 40th Anniversary --For the Shag artwork event and signing was there on August 9th
When I arrived there was already quite a bit of a line.....Is a new Indiana Jones attraction opening? Not so much.
As I tried to sort out which line was which...I took a quick look in one of the stores where I ended up with a Hawaiian Tiki Room Shirt
Here was a Tomorrowland shirt SHAG style! Tiki Style----Going into stores can be unhealthy for the wallet Awww! There were ghosts in the windows as I waited in the hot sun for a line that was moving slower than the Rocket Rods The Line of the day award Being in line for that long on Main Street gives you the time to appreciate the little details A Dude rocking the Shag Haunted Mansion Shirt Once Inside a sample of some of the stuff Once you picked what you wanted---you got to wait in line again ---Lines Rock.
More Shag action
Non Shag Mansion Action I got the Coaster set
and the Postcard set so I would have all 14 of the painting that I could make a display for Luckily the Autograph line had dwindled away by the time I got through the merchandise line
So Chilling with Shag Tiki Style
Of course I had to go on the Mansion to celebrate the anniversary .....Here are a few pics I snapped of the outside. I tried to capture a few different angles than normal.
