Where is the owl?

Greetings Ghost Fans,

At the Haunted Mansion, there are several Raven's throughout the Mansion. Some speculate that they are all different, others say that it is the same one that comes from room to room to oversee us.

In the Graveyard over the band, there are two owls that are occasionally startled by the blast of a horn. But did you know that an owl makes another appearance so to speak? In the newly revised Stretch Room audio, within 20 seconds of the foyer door opening, an owl can be heard hooting, then fluttering away.

The Dropping of Hints...

Greetings Ghost Fans,
For quite a while now, I have been talking about my little mystery project that has sometimes delayed my blog postings. This week I am giving a small sample of the imagery that is slowly shaping the mystery project into something that I feel will truly be a fan favorite. I am hoping to unveil the project by January.

Ghostly Games

Greetings Ghost Fans,

First off, as a note to my readers, I have not forgotten you. I have gotten so many e-mails here recently as to why I had not posted anything. First and foremost, I have been researching a few old items dealing with the Mansion which I feel will make great blog posts, and secondly, I have a small side project I am working on that will be of great interest to Ghost Relations Dept. Readers. I am simply refining my materials for that project.

Anyway, without further delay, this weeks post:

Back in the 1970's, Walt Disney World had a few different coin arcades that went along with the attractions. There was an arcade for Pirates of the Caribbean (Link to Widen Your World Caribbean Arcade Page) with several old non-video games. Now, I know what you're thinking; How awesome would it be if the Haunted Mansion had an arcade? Well, it appears that at one point, it was planned! Yes, in the area which now hold the Pet Cemetery and the Yankee Trader store, there was originally to be an arcade, as evident by this early blueprint. Feel free to click on the blueprint for a larger, more legible version.
