Actress Melissa Joan Hart was at the event with children from Planet Hope. We had the opportunity to interview her as well. Her interview is transcribed below and is also available on video:
LaughingPlace.com: What did you think?
Melissa Joan Hart: Thought it was wonderful. I thought it was a great ride. I got a cool jacket. (shows off the jacket) Itís a little hot right now. Itís summer in California. Well I guess itís nice, it's not summer anymore. Itís perfect. It was the perfect ride. You combine Haunted Mansion with a great movie about Halloween and Christmas and what better way to get you through the whole season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah - the whole thing, it all flows into the same sort ofÖyou want to decorate the house, you get dressed up, youíre going to parties, and it is just three months of parties, dressing up, and decorating your house. So it works together, I think.
LP: Did the kids like it?
MJH: (to the children) Did you like it?
LP: Can you tell me about Planet Hope?
MJH: They have a bunch of different things that they do. They have a camp where the kids will go with their mother - homeless kids will go. And they get to do fun camp activities while the mothers do other things like self-esteem stuff and kind of work on bettering their future. And they do a bunch of things like they have big parties where everyone will bring a gift and weíll wrap the gifts. And then go around on Christmas day to the sleeping bags on the street. They just really help homeless children.

I just found this from the Clarissa list, I think itís from last year but possibly theyíre making it a regular thing because I donít remember the charity mentioned before. The page and HTML sources donít give any dates either. If you go to the link there are bigger versions of the pictures and two versions of a video of the above interview.
