Disneyland Mansion Reopened and Creepy Collectables

Greetings Ghost Fans,

This week I am going to show you some great photos taken by LeotasChild for the reopening of the Disneyland Haunted Mansion. Though not a lot has changed during the rehab (at least, not the rumored changes of upgrades like the WDW Mansion), it has received a few small upgrades, including the new stenciling on the Load, Unload and Upramp belts to resemble and endlessly moving carpet runner.

Also, this week, LeotasChild has featured me on her Haunted Mansion Collectables blog. There are some great pictures of peoples collections. As I have sent a lot of photos in, not all will be featured this week, so check back next week for even more! LINK TO BLOG

Creepy Creeps with Eerie Eyes

Greetings Ghost Fans,

With the new rehab at Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion, the original Sinister 11 portraits have been placed elsewhere in the mansion. The Hatchet Man himself has been placed in the Doombuggy load area. Here I show you the original paint job and now the newly refinished paintwork.

One other thing of interest about this portrait. Since opening day the Hatchet Man (Ghost Host) portrait was the only Sinister 11 portrait to not feature realistic eyes with iris'. Instead, they were two menacing black spots from behind the portrait. Now that the portrait no longer watches, his eyes have been painted in as well.

The Bird of Paradise is an Elegant Bird

Greetings Ghost Fans,

New Orleans Square is full of ironwork. No matter where you look, you find it. The Haunted Mansion facade in itself is made up mostly of ornate ironwork. All ironwork seen on the exterior of the mansion and its grounds came from an ironwork fabrication company based in Tennessee. The pattern name: Bird of Paradise.

I'm On My Way to Mandalay!

Greetings Ghost Fans,
Sorry for the non-existant post last week and the late post this week.

My last post discussed something within Disneylands Attic, so I decided to put something up about something hidden in the Walt Disney World attic.

I am not certain if the book is still hidden within the attic, only time and good eyes will tell. On a table that used to be fairly close to the entrance to the attic was a book of sheet music. Found here are images of the book and scans of the pages themselves.
