Good morning MW! This day in Disney history August 9th, 1969. The Haunted Mansion opens to the public! An attraction that was connected to several myths & urban legends. Since the facade had been up for nearly five years, rumors began making their way through schoolyards & across back fences. My favorite, a "test patron" had supposedly been literally "scared to death!" πŸ‘» Madame Leota, the medium in the sΓ©ance room & the tiny talking figure @ the end of the ride, is modeled after Imagineer Leota Toombs (also known as Leota Thomas). It was the first attraction developed & opened without Walt Disney (he had passed away two years before). What's YOUR favorite thing about HM?

Here's a story: A few months after the Mansion opened in 1969, it closed for a mysterious reason. People thought that it was so scary that someone actually was killed inside. Well actually, the floors of the stretching room where collecting mold and were damaged from a small leak from the water of the Rivers of America, thus, they had to replace the flooring. :) - BaseballMickey_CM  7260.0 #9 11:33AM
Interesting!!! Thank you for sharing that BMCM!! - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 12:59PM
The woman at the end, telling me to " hurry back.. and don't forget your DEATH certificate" love it! - erinten  539.9 #367 8:01AM
When the doom buggies come down the stairway before you get on, I've always wanted to ride it all the way around - rescueranger77  153.4 #2609 1:47PM

Original cemetery - pikarich  4789.6 #23 7:58AM
The hidden one? - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 9:44AM
When I was a kid it closed for awhile for refurb. I remember hearing a rumor that it was too scary, and they had to make it more kid friendly. My favorite thing about HM is the singing statues in the cemetery. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #76 8:05AM
Really?! Did you notice anything that changed after? - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 9:46AM
I always wondered what they changed, if anything. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #76 11:30AM
my goodness! Up for 5 years!? That's a long time. As for my favorite part...maybe the attic and falling out of it. I wanna just walk around there and look at stuff - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5826.8 #18 8:27AM
Right?! It's no wonder so many stories were started about it. A DL promotion team dream come true I'm sure! Oh the anticipation! The attic is my favorite as well! - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 10:15AM

My favorite is the wall papers throughout the mansion - maxinerenton  422.7 #491 7:58AM
I can't say that I've noticed it except for the hallway with all the doors. I'll make a point to look next time! - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 10:13AM

My favorite part is the "stetching room". I love the dialogue and the tight rope girl. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #416 8:16AM
Definitely the ball room - there's so much to look at in there. I always hope the ride either stops for a second or goes a little slower so I can see everything! Happy Birthday HM! - Oinker34  1311.0 #123 8:17AM
Sooo much going on in there! I always hope for that as well! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 8:41AM

Neato!! πŸ‘ - nickb92  69.6 #4068 8:29AM
The hat box ghost was only in the attraction for a couple of days and was replaced by the wedding dress with the red beating heart in the attic scene. - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #546 8:38AM
Thanks for the informative post! 😁 - SquishyGlamazon  115.5 #3263 8:51AM

I enjoy the ballroom scene and always look forward to see who are hitch hiker is. ✨ - IBelieveInFairies  660.6 #286 8:55AM
I love the anticipation of getting on the ride itself. Good morning every one. β˜€ - WishIWereThere  290.2 #930 9:00AM
I love the HM. The dinner scene is one of my favorite parts of the ride. Thanks for the post. - PrincessLeia  306.8 #834 9:00AM
Thanks Duchess. I always love this attraction but I especially love it during the holiday transformation and can't wait to experience it with Danie for her first time. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #161 9:18AM
I also love the story about the Imagineers setting all the props and animatronics on a motion sensor when they were in a warehouse during testing. When the janitor came in at nigh, everything came on and gave him a good scare. Imagineers said there was a broom in the middle of the floor the next morning and that individual never came back to work there again. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #161 9:21AM
What?!!! Danie hasn't seen the NBC version!!!! Oh my goodness how exciting! That was a fun story! I hang heard the one about the broom! Scary!! - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 10:17AM
*hadnt heard - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 10:18AM
Yeah we're pretty excited, gonna be booking our trip very soon. We're just waiting to make sure she can get the days off. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #161 10:23AM
My favorite parts are the dialog and the music. - Twitterpated  267.4 #1145 9:19AM
Yay for you and your wonderful info!!! My favorite part about haunted mansion is the elevator!!! I feel super nerdy but I can recite the whole thing the ghost host says in the elevator!! πŸ˜„ - CourtyAstroBlisters  782.5 #227 9:23AM
I can too! Lol - angelle  8.7 #11394 10:48AM
Thanks girl! Me three! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 11:27AM
The haunting music during the beginning and the voice of Paul Frees. - Bo22  392.3 #548 9:26AM
I don't think I could pick just one favorite thing. I love it all from the que to the end. I really like as you travel in the hall way and see the doors moving and hear snarling. I hear that those are the ghosts of mw trolls trying to escape, but I am pretty sure that's just rumor :) - DownTheRabbitHole  310.2 #813 9:27AM
I like to recite the whole beginning intro and then scream when the lights go out. 😁 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #223 9:34AM
Me too! Especially with a elevator full of MWers! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 1:27PM

My fav part still has to be the ballroom dancing ghosts. Ever since I was little they have fascinated me, and the NBC transformation only makes it better! - dccp  348.1 #641 9:50AM
Ever since I was little I would always look forward to see what ghost would sit next to me lol - annjay07  170.5 #2347 10:30AM
Me too - MarshaMouse  4942.5 #22 10:51AM
I always hope to stop in the cemetery before the singing heads :) - Squirtortue  311.1 #802 11:21AM
Can I say everything? If i have to pick 1, I'd have to go with the attic. I love the photos of the head-less grooms changing back and forth and all the detail in that room. - DisneyRose  247.7 #1339 11:33AM
I think "everything" is a totally acceptable answer! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6217.7 #17 6:50PM
I LOVEEE the dining room scene, and the hitch-hiking ghosts :D - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #156 1:09PM

My favorite is the dining room and ballroom when it's changed to NBC. I love the gingerbread smell. I was so happy when the doombuggies stopped for a minute or so in the dining room. - ima-pirateswife  744.9 #247 9:31PM
Great info as always! - madsdad  1868.2 #83 9:36PM
I love the part after you exit the attic, and are going backwards and are looking up at the spooky trees with the faces, and then the old man with the skinny dog! - MoreGumboPlease  229.7 #1568 9:51PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of Oct 12, 2015
The Parks have been packed! Expect more crowds as we near Halloween and the temperatures drop. Since the Halloween parties began, Sunday has been the busiest day, followed by Saturday, and Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week!  - Admin Oct 12, 2015 7:40PM

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  559.1 #347 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7253 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  409.2 #520 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  164.0 #2458 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  242.1 #1415 5:04PM
Can't wait, 7 days!!!!  - varela2892  16.0 #7834 2:53PM
