 Best Post of the Day 8-9-14
Good morning!
This day in Disney history August 9th, 1969: forty five years ago, the Haunted Mansion opened to the public in New Orleans Square!

 The mansions beginnings go all the way back to when Walt Disney had artist Ken Anderson work on a walk-through "ghost house".
Ken Anderson

Designers wanted the facade to look like the stereotypical haunted house, but Walt Disney said, “We’ll take care of the outside and let the ghosts take care of the inside.” Sadly Walt passed away two years before the opening, making this the first attraction to open without him. (Dec. 15th,1966) With the loss of their great visionary, the imagineers debated over the design, should it be scary? Funny?

Marc Davis (funny).....
mark

and Claude Coats (scary).......
claude

combined their ideas to create what the mansion is today.

The Haunted Mansion was connected to several myths and urban legends. Since the facade had been up for nearly five years, rumors began making their way through schoolyards and across backyard fences. My favorite, a "test patron" had supposedly been literally "scared to death!" πŸ‘»

Another fun story surrounding the mansion, quoted from my friend @BaseballMickey_CM: "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."

BUT the biggest mystery of them all seems to be with the ACTUAL opening date…..every Disney website I've researched says it's the 9th.
BUT I've found evidence to the contrary. You be the judge. For a fascinating read about this:

Madame Leota, the medium in the séance room and the tiny talking figure at the end of the attraction as you exit, is modeled after longtime (WED—now Walt Disney Imagineering) employee, model builder, costumer, and Imagineer Leota Toombs (also known as Leota Thomas).

"Serpents, and spiders, tail of a rat...call in the spirits, wherever they're at! Rap on a table, it's time to respond...send us a message from somewhere beyond. Goblins and ghoulies, from last Halloween...awaken the spirits with your tambourines! Creepies, and crawlies, toads in a pond...let there be music, from regions beyond! Wizards and witches, wherever you dwell...give us a hint by ringing a bell!"

When I'm really missing the Mansion, this ride through video helps:

The tune, “Grim Grinning Ghosts” composed by Buddy Baker ........
buddy baker

with lyrics by F. Xavier Atencio.......
xavier

 can be heard in nearly every section of the Mansion with various arrangements. "Grim Grinning Ghosts" is not performed by the Mellomen, but rather by a pickup group. The only member of the Mellomen heard is Thurl Ravenscroft, who sings as part of a quintet of singing busts in the graveyard scene (the one wth the mustache). His face is also used, projected onto the bust with a detached head.
Can you name the other four? (pictured in the main collage below) First one who does gets a gold star for today….

To listen to the original recording of the story of the Mansion (I believe you can purchase this CD in the park):

πŸ‘ do you prefer the original or the nbc version?  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 6:55AM
i like seeing the pet cemetary and i believe that side of the mansion was rthe original line, also love all the puns on the tombstones and the mansion always the last laugh when you exit by the turnstille there a speaker that laughs at you, also snce the ride is underground the imagineers placed fake tree brances as you exit to simultae the underground appearance which they also did in pirates as well - pikarich  3499.3 #29 12:52AM
I'll have to look for those tree branches! I've never notice them! Thanks pikarich ! πŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 9:14AM
I can't imagine DL without this attraction. It is not my favorite but I love the history behind it. So many back stories and characters. They have become a part of the magic. Our family enjoys the overlay . The decorations and smells are exciting to experience. Thanks for this post! We appreciate all the work that goes into them. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  987.4 #165 12:57AM

I agree! Which version do you prefer?  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 9:17AM
My favorite thing about the Mansion is there is always something new to see. Find something new every time I go on. I hope the see the pet cemetery some day. And I like both the original and Jack mansions equally.  - erinten  493.4 #385 5:34AM
😊 isn't it funny, people who don't have AP's and don't understand our love for Disney think we could get bored or think "we've seen it all already". Piffft! I'm with you girl, every time I go to the park I see something new! A vote for each version βœ”οΈβœ”οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ‘‹ thank you!  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 9:23AM

I have not seen the nbc version. I love the hallway, looking at the changing portraits, looking out the window at the rain,and it just gets better from there  - WishIWereThere  267.2 #1099 9:42AM

Verne RowChuck Schroeder Jay MeyerBob EbrightHow'd I do?Love this!  And I remember when it was new. So much fun back in those days. First POTC opened and then it was the Haunted Mansion!  Seems like something new was there with each visit we has back then!  (Also, IASW.) this has always been a favorite, along with POTC. Still is today, and thankfully with my family, as well!  It's nice to see the words of Madame Leota up there. I could heard that in her voice as I read it. Fun!  Thank you for another awesome history post, my dear! 😘  - MeridaFan  3486.2 #30 7:16AM

Girl you did it! 🌟 there's your star! Wear it proudly today ok? 😊 so happy you enjoyed the read! You're so blessed to have been on the parks when so many attractions opened! What part is your favorite? Do you prefer the original or nbc version?  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 9:34AM
Yay!  I got the 🌟 star!!  And wear it proudly, I shall!  Teehee. Thank you!  I love both versions, but I am kind of partial to the nbc one of late because it brings to mind the holidays and all the fun times associated with that time of year. I really should talk to my cousins, since they lived in Anaheim back then and were possibly there on opening day for some of these awesome rides and attractions! - MeridaFan  3486.2 #30 10:40AM
I love the HM and it's definitely one of my favorites!!  Loved this post so much, thank you!  My fav part is the dining room scene.  I like both versions, but if I could only pick one it would have to be the original.  πŸ‘» - MinnieMousewife  807.8 #199 7:24AM
So happy you enjoyed the read! Thank you! Good choice for a favorite! And βœ”οΈ Another vote for the original! Thanks for answering my questions dear! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 1:36PM

Great post, as usual! I have never seen it at Halloween time with the overlay, so I am super excited to go this October! - Thumper13  431.1 #452 7:37AM
Thanks! 😊 oh I'm excited for you! It's a must see! πŸ‘ what's your favorite part of the original version?  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 1:38PM
First thing I read this am. Awesome stuff here. I would have said NBC Holiday because it has been so long since we have seen the mansion without it. Having just ridden it 2 weeks ago I would say I like it better without it. I think it is much scarier and the lines didn't seem as long IMO.  - Dizkid  358.4 #586 7:38AM
βœ”οΈ For original. 😊 Glad you enjoyed the read. It's always nice when the ride isn't so long.  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 6:58AM
Thank you sooo much for this!!! Went through everything but the Kat Cressida interview, which I'm going to buy 'cause I love the Bride! My preference is the classic HM because it's scarier. The NBC mansion is a little too day glow for me. Loved this post!! - PrincessCindy  120.8 #3071 7:51AM
- PrincessCindy  120.8 #3071 7:56AM
Oh good! Really happy you enjoyed all the links. 😊 βœ”οΈ for original version.  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 7:02AM
Thanks for this history lesson. I love all the facts! I can't wait to show my son this post. Today is his birthday and I know he will be excited that he shares this day with Disney history. I love this ride. I love both dress ups but I think I favor NBC.  - Bassplayerswife  252.1 #1236 8:05AM
Oh wow! Hope he got a kick out of reading this. 😊 βœ”οΈ Vote for nbc. Thank you!  - Duchess_SMK  5868.3 #14 7:04AM

I'm sad to say that I have only seen the original version. My birthday is in October, so it's always been a dream of mine to see the mansion decorated for Halloween. One day.The strange thing is, I never knew the mansion was that old. My parents used to take me to the park when I was younger every year. I remember being in the area of the mansion, but have no memory of it at all. I spent a good chunk of my day yesterday trying o figure out why they never took me on it. I seriously thought the mansion was only about 20 years old. The first time I went on it was when I went with my kids. Again, thanks for educating me on this Duchess_SMK you really got my mind going today! It was a great history lesson! - DarthTinkerbell  295.3 #856 11:07AM

I like both, but probably NBC more.on the  NBC DVD there's an option for extras and if you click on it it will take you see several tours on HM with Christmas and without and some with all the sounds,  and some a walking tour on what and why and who did what!!!really interesting and fun. - secretagentangel  1348.7 #107 3:06PM

One of my Β favorite things about Β the Haunted Mansion, is the scared feeling I get, after NBC is put away. Β Don't get me wrong, I ❀️ that the 2 holidays c 1000 ollide, and it's cute and not really scary, and especially, the music! (Danny Elfman, an AMAZING Composer, record producer, and actor.) Β but when you haven't gone in a long time, and they place the Mansion back to normal, it's a great magical scary feeling all over again! 😊 lol ❀️❀️ - MadameLeota  2075.0 #61 7:16PM

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 week of March 2, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday); DCA: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Taste Pilots Grill (opens 3/13), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (opens 3/3), World of Color (TBD). 

Annual Passholder Event- Celebrating 20 Years of Adventure!- Annual Passholders can enjoy extra magic hours on either Tuesday, March 3 or Wednesday, March 4 from 8pm-midnight in the lands of Adventureland, Frontierland and New Orleans Square, with surprises the entire night! Registration is now closed for the event. Check in for the event will start at 3pm at Ticket Booth 4 (near Guest Relations on the DCA side).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With the rainy weather, expect it to be quiet both Monday and maybe Tuesday.  With the AP events on Tuesday/Wednesday night, expect the parks to be a little busier than normal towards park closing.  The weather is supposed to warm up later this week, so expect it to be a little busier towards the end of the week and into the weekend. Expect CIs to be in the 50s-high 60s during the week, 70s-low 80s during the weekend.   - BaseballMickey_CM Mar 2, 2015 3:14PM

GOAT EFFECT is finally here for iOS! #SaveTheGoat by knocking the dynamite out of his mouth and see how high you can run your score up! Press on your High Score on the main page to see where you rank in Game Center. Have fun!

I think I'm too dumb to figure this game out! I have no idea what's going on. I throw for dogs and sometimes the miners fall over and sometimes they don't. Then it will randomly say hit the goat, which I do and nothing happens. I've tried playing for literally an hour hoping I would catch on and I'm not gettin it. Can someone far more intelligent then I am give me a hint as to what is supposed to be happeneing? πŸ˜ƒ - BellesLibrary  403.0 #500 9:39PM
I'm right there with you. I can't seem to figure out the game either. I do the exact same thing as you. Someone please explain the object of this game. I'm about to delete it.  - Kfeatherer  347.6 #618 6:26AM
