    Elements of Haunted Mansion that are Unchanged for HMH

    For folks like Datameister and I heh, who actively miss Haunted Mansion's normal state during the fall/winter months, or those who just like tidbits and odds and ends to look for...a partial list of the unchanged elements (both visually and soundtrack) during Haunted Mansion Holiday from the regular Haunted Mansion. If you see or know I missed, please do feel free to post with them and discuss..

    1) The normal stretching room scream plays when the lights go out, even though the Jack audio is partially played over it, along with the crashing thud of the landing.

    2) In the Corridor of Doors, the door animation and soundtrack of growling and laughter and screaming remains the same, as well as the portraits of various ghouls lining the walls.

    3) In the ballroom, characters such as the birthday ghost, the old woman in rocking chair, the ghost above the fireplace, the banshees and chandelier ghosts, the duelists, the dancers and the organist all have their normal animations and locations.

    4) The sound of the bride's heart beating can still be heard throughout the attic scene underneath the music.

    5) In the cemetary, unchanged in location are the owls, cats, and the skeletal dog along with their soundtracks. The old man listening to the mummy keeps his same dialogue as well and no physical changes.

    These are the main ones I can think of...there are of course figures and elements in the graveyard that get minimal changes, like putting the Santa hats on the pop-up ghosts and ribbons on the tombstones...but still is changed, as well as all the music/vocal tracks for the usual cemetary ghosts. Are there any elements I have forgotten?

    You know, there are a lot of things during HMH that are intact, nothing much is really changed out, just more is added on.

    Thereby providing irrefutable evidence that less is indeed sometimes more.

    What I meant more specifically then is exactly the same as during normal Haunted Mansion. The tombstones are still there, the 13 hour clock is still there, the watching busts are still there, Madame Leota is..but they all have either been visually or sound/dialogue changed. So they aren't the same as in the normal attraction.

    Well since there is a lot that has been changed, why not list what has?

    Really? I never heard it. Unless you are talking about the Monkey Bride. Also, sorry to get off-topic but did Oogie Boogie always wear the Santa beard?

    They probably want it to be associated with the monkey bride, but it is the same sound effect as always regardless. I don't recall him having the beard the first year they put him in, but that's not definite...he might have and I just don't recall it.

    That works as well though the list is a lot more extensive....if you mean items that are there normally, but get additions....there's things like the spider webs with Christmas lights in them placed over the watching busts, and the vampire teddy nailing the guy trying to get out of the coffin inside.

    So you do actually hear Constance's heart beat? Thats odd. anyhow i was just looking at a video of this year's. It looked to me like the ghostly dancers were turned off. Could just be video quality.

    Well what I am referring to is the sound effect that's been there all along, with the old bride even of the glowy eyes and heart....it was prominent then, and it stayed in when Constance moved in instead. So it really never left...I always associate it with the old, glowing-heart bride since it was there for her years and just kept being played with the Constance changes.

    Yeah' when I used the term "Constance" I was refering to all of the Brides incarnations. also I just noticed they put Leotas lamp back during HMH. That means the odds of WDW getting HMH have gotten lower.

    I'm fairly certain the griffins on the "staircase" leading up to the first room are still there with nothing on them, unless they added bows or something and I just didn't see them.
