Who knows what this sign represents?
The different towns where all the other big thunders are around the world - JoshTheJunkyardJamboreer  301.1 #779 3:59PM
Correct! Tumbleweed is Magic Kingdom, Rainbow Ridge is Disneyland, Thunder Mesa is Paris, and Grizzly Gulch is Hong Kong. - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 4:08PM

Starting today, we have implemented a new system for guests with visual disabilities. We are now issuing return times electronically by scanning your party's ticket media with an ipod app that will put you into a digital stand by queue and issue you a return time. Please be aware that as of today you will only be allowed to hold one return time at a time if using this system. This brings the syste  More...
All members of your party need to be present with their tickets when receiving a return time as well as when returning. Keep in mind this is new and may have some glitches, learning period, etc.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2015.1 #53 8:06PM

No, it's the ones that ignore me saying the bridge is one way outbound traffic and to go down the ramp toward ROA to get to Pirates/Mansion/Splash/Pooh - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 12:14AM

The earliest known concept for the story of Haunted Mansion revolved around Gideon Gorelieu, also known as Bartholomew Gore or Captain Gore. Captain Gore married a woman named Priscilla. One day Captain Gore had to go off to sea on some business and told Priscilla not to enter the attic of the Mansion while he was gone. Well, curiousity got to Priscilla and she went up into the attic and looked ar  More...
Forgot to mention the concept story that would have linked together Pirates, Mansion and Tom Sawyer's Island into a single fluid storyline. An Imagineer namedย Eddie Sotto came up with a story concept that had Jean Lafitte ย as the one time owner of the Mansion who used it as a safe house for hiding his treasure and smuggling items to and from his base on Tom Sawyer Island. Now, as you may know, the dock at Pirate's of the Caribbean is named Lafitte's Landing and Jean Lafitte's anchor is on display along the Rivers of America. Jean Lafitte was a pirate who made his way around the Caribbean and had a base in New Orleans, he also aided the US Navy with the defense of the city during The War of 1812. Anyway, the concept was that Jean Lafitte's life was shown in Pirates of the Caribbean and there was going to be a hidden crypt full of loot underneath New Orleans Square that would lead from Pirates over to Mansion. Tom Sawyer's Island would have shipwrecks, pirate lairs and hidden forts with gold and the like on it, sound familiar?. ย Hints to this proposed plan still exist and much more was used throughout the land's life. For instance, there is a small bricked up sunken archway along the Rivers of America by the Mansion that is said to have been where the crypt would have exited. When Pirates the movie came out, there was a show in NOS that had a small stage where the pirates would perform from, along the stage were props to do with smuggling and also a portrait of Miss April-December that was used in the Mansion's changing portrait hallway. Finally, if you go look at the River Notices board by the raft dock, there is an article about Tom and Huck being found being pirates on the island. If you read the entire thing, it states that rumors say the island was used as a base by Jean Lafitte.ย  - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 4:28PM

I forgot to mention that with the addition of Constance and her husbands, the Haunted Mansion is now linked story wise to Disney Sea's Tower of Terror and Hong Kong's Mystic Manor. George Hightower is a relative of Harrison Hightower, the owner of the Hightower Hotel (aka Tower of Terror). Harrison was also a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers that Henry Mystic, owner of Mystic Manor belongs to and was an associate of his. In fact, Harrison makes a cameo in the queue area of Mystic Manor in a group photo of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 1:07PM
And for the trivia fans: Madam Leota's likeness is that of Leota Toombs and voiced by Eleanor Audley who also voiced Lady Tremaine and Maleficent. The Ghost Host is voiced by Paul Frees, who also did the voice of Ludwig Von Drake, the auctioneer captain on Pirates as well as the "Dead Men Tell No Tales!" voice, narrator from Adventures Thru Inner Space,  Thurl Ravenscroft is the voice of Uncle Theodore, the singing bust who's head is seperated. Thurl also sang "You're a Mean One, Mr Grinch, as is also the voice of Fritz in the Enchanted Tiki Room and the original voice of Tony the Tiger. The breathing doors in the Corridor of Doors was inspired by the movie The Haunting. The grandmother on the rocking chair in the ballroom scene is from Carousel of Progress and the organ is from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The ghost horse pulling the hearse out front is named Nightmare. Finally, The Haunted Mansion is the only attraction to be located at each of the Disney resorts around the world yet be in a different land. - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 3:36PM

I'll probably post up the Haunted Mansion one later in the week. Probably have to do it as a 2 parter since there was a change in the storyline sort of with Constance's taking over. Can also go through the whole concept to present if people really want it since I know most the history of the Mansion since it's inception - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 12:42AM
Yes, please share the story with the husband who told her not to go into the attic - I was sad when they changed it around and made the bride the villain. - DisneyOnesie  494.4 #356 4:41AM

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  2302.7 #45 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! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - duckchub  473.7 #375 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  660.2 #234 11:02PM
Oh, there's some new rumors and pretty good reasons why the Electrical Parade should be coming back ;) - CM_Shadowgamer  2302.7 #45 11:14PM
I hope you don't have to work the grave yard shift! Have fun! - imjustsayin111  247.6 #1231 9:18AM
Congrats!! We go on Wednesdays so I guess we won't see you this week, maybe sometime soon when we're hoppin' on a doom buggy! - GotMouse_aka_JRoseAllister  84.4 #3551 12:46AM
