    Here's a picture of Disneyland's Conservatory with trees.

    So, yes, Ukulele Guy, it seems as if all mansions have them.

    Personally, if I were to make any changes to the Tokyo mansion, I...well, no changes really need to be made. I wouldn't mind seeing the first raven appearance in the Graveyard relocated to ABOVE the doom buggies (not off to the side), make the Caretaker look more like Disneyland's, and maybe add some family photos to the Corridor of Doors. But, other than that, the ride is flawless.

    Here is some more not so new info, while looking for pictures of Beating Heart, I ran across the story of The Mistletoe Bride, or the bride who locked herself in a chest and died. As some of us know, this was a story in Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark by Alvin Schrwartz.

    This is from a 1906 issue of Puck magazine, posted recently at one of Craig Conley's blogsites.



    I think this is the first time I've ever seen an old, visual presentation of fun-loving, partying ghosts. You find them in comic songs going back a hundred years, with their heyday in the 30's and 40's, but I've never seen a cartoon depiction like this one. What it looks like is ghosts toasting the New Year at just past midnight.

    It's not hard at all to imagine this as a Marc Davis concept sketch, almost as it stands. I think this is a really cool find. In its way, it's one of the closest parallels to the Haunted Mansion yet.
    "My mental facilities are twice what yours are, pea brain!"

    The conversation continues at Long-Forgotten, the blog.

    There were 2 videos I found today that I thought were quite interesting.

    The second video points out something that was most likely unintentional, and more likely has to do with what happens when the prints are changed out for sometimes slightly varied reconstructions of each other.

    The Phantom Manor video is interesting. Is that really an eye-level view of the stretching room attic? I'm not too familiar with it, but I never thought the corpse dropped at all.

    I remember hearing about a few stretching room effects that were on the table for WDW's '07 refurb but never made it, including an effect in which the corpse would be released a few feet before the scene went black. One of my favorite ideas was the rapid un-stretch– something that would only be possible at WDW. Apparently while the lights were out the room would completely reset, implying the possibility that it might have been your imagination. I'm curious to hear what HBG2 has to say about the continuity of that idea.

    That second video probably left out the most obvious detail.

    Hey Guys,

    I found this backstage picture I have not seen before of a corridor. Anybody have an idea of where this is located?

    Thanks!

    That's an image HBG2 put together showing the chicken exit/access corridor behind the rainstorm windows in the changing portrait hall right as you exit the stretching rooms in the Disneyland HM. Link here.

    I'm pretty sure I took that chicken exit photo... I also took a flash picture of the trees (timed with the lightning...) just to see what was down there. HBG2 mocked up the cool floorplan layout.

    Edit: Just to clarify, we had a small child with us, that's why we used the chicken exit. No other reason! lol

    Whoops, sorry, I guess I was a bit unclear in how I said that - no intention to take away credit for the photo itself. And there's no shame in being in the chicken exit - you were doing valuable Mansion research. No other reason necessary.
