Nightmare Before Christmas attraction portfolio concept art

If you haven’t been to Disneyland during the Halloween/Christmas holidays, then you’ve missed one of the best attraction overlays ever to hit a Disney theme park – the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion Holiday (much better than Gummi Bear Glen, don’t you think?). What could be better than that you ask?

How about if Tim Burton’s excellent film could had an attraction all it’s own. That’s what could have been if  Imagineer Christopher Merrit’s portfolio presentation had become reality. I love the attraction vehicle, a suspended coffin (a la the ships in Peter Pan). Spend some time exploring Christopher’s site for some insight to other Disney attractions that may have been and some that actually were built. (via)
