What Is The Pepper’s Ghost Effect Inside The Haunted Mansion

What Is The Pepper's Ghost Effect Inside The Haunted Mansion 1 One of my favorite things to do is trying to figure out how something is done.  I was one of those kids that would take things apart to learn how they are built and then put it back together, most of the time.  My absolute favorite attraction is the Haunted Mansion, and going through I’m always amazed at how the Imagineers created some of the effects that still amaze fans to this day. When I first started t Continue Reading

As the weeks went by, I patiently prepared myself salivati Continue Reading

Hidden Jack Skellington?

Hidden Jack Skellington? 30 Welcome Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion! We all know and love those famous words and can probably recite the transcript for the entire ride. I know my family can! In my deepest ‘spooky voice’ I attempt to do my best Paul Frees impression, not as successfully as I would like but that’s beside the point. While on a visit to Magic Kingdom a few summers ago, we got caught in a pretty lengthy rain storm. Continue Reading

Grim Grinning Ghosts

Grim Grinning Ghosts 37 Happy haunts materialize, and begin to vocalize! Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize! The words and melody of that song stay in my head long after I’ve ridden Haunted Mansion. The song, composed by Buddy Baker with lyrics by X. Atencio, is quite catchy! But there may be something you don’t know about the song and its melody. While known for playing in the graveyard scene, the song can actually be heard t Continue Reading
