    Also, it would be interesting to see what, if anything, is sent back.

    So does that make the Hatbox Ghost Gracy himself?

    Master Gracey was a tombstone name at WDW and Disneyland in tribute to designer Yale Gracey and has been conclusively denied by Disney in official format as being the Ghost Host, and was never linked to Hatbox at all by fanfiction or official sources. Hatbox simply was a menacing spectre in the attic and groom to the lost, eerie bride, with no official ties to being in any way the "owner" of the Mansion or host.

    Incidentally, with regard to the Haunted Mansion's address; it's on the corner of Esplanade and Front Street. Also, you can see the mailbox nicely in this shot.

    The Ghost Host is an interesting character. Is there anyone quite like him in fiction or film or attractions? He speaks to us, the guests; he never speaks to any other character in the attraction. He's not an evil character, like Maleficent, since he has some concern for our continued survival; nor is he really a good character - his appearance as the hanged man in the stretch room seems to be a deliberate act, a ghoulish prank.

    But he certainly isn't torn between good and evil; rather he's quite comfortable with frightening prematurely and politely regretting it.

    He owes something to Vincent Price, I think. Price played the (non-ghost) host in William Castle's "House on Haunted Hill". That character, Frederick Loren, embodies a similar mixture of enignmatic calm, dark humor, courtesy and manipulation.

    Another, fairly slender thread connects him to Belasco, the (dead) host in the movie Hell House. The guests are greeted by a phonograph: "Welcome to my house. I'm delighted you could come..."

    That seems similar to our first experience of the Ghost Host, in the foyer; the disembodied, speakerish voice suggests a recording.

    I'm not a big fan. Obviously, projection technologies can be put to brilliant use in an attraction like this (cf. Madame Leota and the singing busts), but those applications create convincing illusions - they make you think you're seeing something that in reality would be remarkable. This application makes you think you're seeing a hand icon projected on the back of a ride vehicle.

    I'm curious if people weren't unloading fast enough. It seems to me that with an automated spiel and a CM on the ramp, no further encouragement or clarification would be necessary. Perhaps it's an issue with non-English-speaking guests?

    From the still I thought it was going to be a joke, honestly...heh. It reminds me of the giant Monty Python foot a little. It isn't horrible...but not particularly well themed...
