Do You Hear Something?

Greetings Ghost Fans,

This week we take a look, and listen to something that has been playing at the Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion for decades while many people have never noticed. The US Mansion Graveyards are nearly idenical in terms of effects, character placement and the like. However, Walt Disney World has had one audio track that Disneyland hasn't.

At the Hearse Tea Party, three ghostly guests enjoy some tea while another ghost sits atop a rock nearby. These three, are the monotonous singers normally heard while riding by. But there is one more singing that most have never heard. His technical name is the Hearse Background Vocal, but I have come to name him the La La singer. This character was voiced by Alan Davies, the same vocalist who voiced the Mummy only a few feet away.

Very interesting! I should point out that "The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdoms to the Movies" has him labeled as the "Mariner" from the portrait above the Library entry. Then again, that book is really just filled with inacuracies. He looks more like a wizard in the final and a Forest Man in the concepts.
