I remember the very first time I went to the Haunted Mansion, about a month after it opened. Once we got up next to the house in the queue, I looked in the windows, and it was pitch black inside, except if I looked up I could see one piece of unpainted wood, that was illuminated by some unseen incandescent light bulb. I could not figure out what that piece of wood was for. Is that still visible? At that point I thought it was a walk-through attraction, and that it would be pitch black inside, and I was really scared that I was going to get lost inside it and never see my family again.
