...and rise as Fruits of every size!


This week we are going to take a look at something very unordinary. Ghost Fruit. Yes, Ghost Fruit. Where better for ghost fruit to appear than the Disneyland Haunted Mansion's Ballroom.

In the ballroom that we see from riding in our doombuggies across the balcony, there are ghosts having a great time. In the center of the ballroom table, there is a stand with fruit inside. On the ghost side of the ballroom beneath the doombuggies, there is a black post in the same location of the table with fruit sitting atop. Now, why would there be such a thing?

The answer isn't about appearing or disappearing fruit, it's about the ghosts sitting at the table themselves. For you see, without the fruit on top of the black post, as we go by in our doombuggies, some of the ghosts would appear to overlap the stand in the middle of the table, therefor, ruining the peppers ghost illusion. It is for this reason that the man on the mantle has his arm over a black painted bust, why the granny is sitting in a black rocking chair, and why the ballroom table has black painted chairs.

However, depending on the lighting levels, sometimes you can actually see the post itself if you try hard enough.
