Countdown to 10/31 - A Day at the Mansion

Welcome, foolish mortals! If you're not a fan of Disney's Haunted Mansion, then you may want to steer clear of AEIOU for the next few days. It's about to get Disney up in here.

I could probably run the entire month of October talking about all sorts of things pertaining to the Haunted Mansion. If you're looking for some like minded spooks, head over to Doombuggies.com. They have a great forum community and loads of info on all the Mansions.

I have a vague memory of the first time I went. I think I was around 6 or 7. After we exited the portrait chamber, they told us to stay close to the wall. I must have already seen too many movies at that age because I did NOT want to stand next to the wall for fear it was going to rotate me around into a hidden room. I was ok for most of the rest of the ride except for when you exit the attic and the buggy goes down the backwards. That freaked me out. And there started a long time love of not only the Haunted Mansion but dark rides too.

Today's creepy old crypt holds the Disneyland Haunted Mansion Unofficial 35th Anniversary Tribute album dug up in 2004. I'm not sure who the internet phantom is that put this together but it's a veritable greatest haunts of the Haunted Mansion.

In addition to the audio, there's also a scan of the booklet from the 1969 Story and Song from the Haunted Mansion album.

  1. Very cool thanks! I must admit I'm not a Disney fan at all, more a hater especially now. And honestly didn't much care for it when I was little, except for gems like this type of far. When they got their horror on then I was into it.
