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  2015.3 #53 8:06PM

They'll never release it. Disney doesn't like to deal with that kind of controversy. That would be a fun sing a long though - missmimi90  1363.8 #89 9:06AM

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  2306.8 #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  2306.8 #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  2306.8 #45 3:36PM

#PiratesOfTheCaribbean #BackStorys Since people wanted to know the back story to Pirates of the Caribbean, here you go. You board your boat and sail down a Louisiana bayou past an old man sleeping in a rocking chair on his house porch. This man is the captain at the auctioneer who has guarded the secret entrance to the grotto holding the treasure he and his crew had accumulated over the many years  More...
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  2306.8 #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
