    Quick Question over HMH?

    Hi guys! Maleficent Fan here.

    I have a quick HMH question that's been bugging me for awhile...

    When did the "scarols" get removed from the attraction? And I'm including both the songs themselves that would play from unseen speakers and the "lyric"-adorned lampposts(?) that were placed in strategic places within the HM's gardens.

    I know - at least for the past two years I've been there during the holidays - that all they play now is the PM gazebo music.

    So do you guys know when the "scarols" were canceled?

    (I'm thinking like 2003 or 2004, but who knows...)

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure, but personally I like the phantom manor music much better.

    Actually I agree with you; I thought the "scarols" were kind of annoying, but still just curious when Disney decided to cancel them.

    Re: Quick Question over HMH?

    I seem to recall hearing that the change was made pretty early into HMH's history...perhaps two years after it started. I never heard the scarols in person, so I can't say what I'd think of 'em. As for the PM gazebo music box track currently in place...I have mixed feelings. I love the track in and of itself - it's beautiful, and a lot of fun to play on piano at that. But hearing it for a while gets old, as would any short and fairly repetitive piece of music.

    I'll agree with Data on this one. As much as I love the piece in the HM queue, I really don't like hearing it. Quite frankly, I think the Haunted Mansion's exterior is a lot more effective without any kind of music.

    Yeah...I prefer the mostly diagetic music you hear in the original HM. The foyer dirge could conceivably be coming from an adjacent room...the ballroom waltz is being played by the ghostly organist...ghosts are singing and playing instruments in the attic and graveyard and exit crypt...all these things make sense as parts of the scenes. The only things that don't quite fit this are the seance room and loading area tracks, but those are so ephemeral and ghostly that they work. You don't get that so much with HMH.

    Of course, you don't get that with PM either, and by all accounts, it works marvelously there.

    Yeah, I really hate the PM music box tune as well. It gets incredibly annoying & repetitive. So glad they don't play it during the regular Haunted Mansion.

    Here's a link to a page with most of the Scarols, go to the bottom half of the page, and you will see a box with the different songs. Just click on the ones you want to hear.

    Haunted Mansion Holiday from Nightmare Before Christmas at Lair2000

    For the HMH special event in 2004, they did play some of the scarols, but I don't think they ran the scarols in the queue during regular park hour.

    In 2002, when they introduce the scarols, they tried several new things, including adding the NBC songs inside the HMH. It was such a pleasant surprise to see that they were continuing to add new things, to keep things fresh.

    In addition to the scarols, during 2002, the ghost host also wanted us to Scream, each time we heard the familar notes to "Grim Grinning Ghost Come out to socialize".

    In 2003, they added Oogie Boogie in several places throughout the Mansion. I'm sad that this one is no longer around:
