In 2005 the Halloween season was expanded with more Disneyland Paris-unique characters, called the Pink Witches. The story behind it was that Pink Witches arrived in Disneyland Park and set up a convention meeting in Halloweenland, called the Pink Witch Academy. Their sole purpose was to battle the Pumpkin Men and made the guests choose sides.
With the arrival of these new decorations, many Disney fans world wide were shocked by the cheap designs and build. On top of that, a collection of Pink Witches representing European countries were considered by many fans and guests as an insult.
