I still can't believe this is happening! Today, Friday and Saturday I train on Mansion. Come say hi!

Thank you all for your kind words. In case I haven't said it enough, Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction in the park, I have to ride it every time I go into the park as a guest as long as it's up and running. It has been my dream to wear that costume and work the attraction since I was *puts hand palm side down around waist* this tall, and it finally came true. I never imagined I'd get to do this, but once I saw New Orleans Square on my placement sheet, I knew I was a step closer to achieving it. I never imagined it would be so soon after hiring on. When I saw it pop up on my schedule, I nearly broke down in tears and I just stared at it dumbfounded in shock and disbelief. You honestly have no idea how much it means to me to get to work this attraction. The only thing I can think of that would be a bigger desire position and dream wise since childhood would be to be able to work a parade shift if and when Electrical Parade finally returns home to it's rightful place. There will definitely be tears on that one based on all the childhood memories I have of it. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 9:37PM
That's awesome! It's so nice to hear something like this, from someone that truly loves and appreciates his job! Congratulations, and I hope someday you get to work the Electrical Light Parade! πŸ˜ƒ - duckchub  557.8 #364 10:59PM
That's one of the other things I love about DL--you can obviously tell there are some CMs who are passionate about their "job". It really shows and is much appreciated. CONGRATULATIONS!! - JediKitty  1061.4 #171 11:02PM
Oh, there's some new rumors and pretty good reasons why the Electrical Parade should be coming back ;) - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 11:14PM
I hope you don't have to work the grave yard shift! Have fun! - imjustsayin111  247.8 #1382 9:18AM

How cool! Yay! Do you get to make the creepy speech?   - PrincessAuroraMomma  596.0 #342 8:15AM
Yes, during today I just glared at guests in a creepy manor while boarding them. Was pretty fun being allowed to actually do it for show. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 5:18PM

So awesome! - hatgal76  449.8 #489 9:25AM
Awesome, enjoy.  - ChristopherRobin661  274.0 #1125 9:26AM

Yay!  Hope you found the right shirt!  Have fun! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 12:35PM
It actually was the right shirt I grabbed the first time. Oddly enough the white undershirt doesn't have an actual collar but sits high enough on your neck when fully buttoned that you just wrap the tie around it then it gets covered by the two wings and most of the tailcoat's collar. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 5:23PM
Looking good man! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 12:35PM
Awesome!  - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3652 12:36PM
I wondered!!! I saw you awesome photo yesterday and thought hmmmmmm, is he going to be our next "caretaker or undertaker" there?  Congrats, hope it is awesome!!! - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 12:38PM
I see I wasn't wrong in wondering when people would start guessing that I had gotten it based on my latest photos ;) - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 5:24PM
So cool!  That would be one of the funnest attractions to work.  Have fun! - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 12:40PM
This is sooooo awesome...bet you cant wait till Haunted Mansion Holiday :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7880.2 #10 12:53PM
You have no idea :) - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 5:24PM

nothing until Friday which will be an 8 hour training day (probably tower, foyer, stretching room) and backstage stuff. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 7:18PM
I was gonna look for you today, but the ride was shut down when I went by around 2 ... Next time;-) - carminaire  802.6 #230 7:30PM
That happened right as we were going to switch locations, we ended up going to tower instead and acting as relay between maintenance and the rest of the mansion cast. I think we were down for about 45 mins? - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #55 7:42PM
You'll have to practice your grim grin. You look too darn happy! - jacdanfan  11394.1 #5 7:35PM
