    Re: Hatbox Ghost Taking up Residence February 2012

    Yes! Now we do not have to hunt for him like I am. Now there will be 999 ghosts in the mansion instead of 998 like it is

    Hatty deserves to be back in the mansion, what will everyone think when people see him? Oh, I can't wait!

    So, does that mean the lights work?

    They took him out because the lights that went from his head on his shoulders to the one in the hatbox does not work. I guess it does now! IF he is coming back

    Who is this yellow bear? Where's Henry?

    The effect itself worked fine. The issue was the other lighting in the room as well as the speed of the Doombuggies which forced the figure to be removed. If you were to see the effect work, in 1969, in a darkened room, it would have been amazing. The problem was that the lighting in the Attic was too bright and the Doombuggies moved past the figure too quickly and the effect did not pull itself off.

    Yes. But with all the things we can do now it shouldnt be a problem, look at the bride how quickly she can show the axe and stuff now. So I hope the rumors I heard are true if so I will be calling in sick at Disney if I am scheduled in February if it appears. =)

    Then why was the lighting of the scene not adjusted to work over the next two years so that it could be part of the next Mansion? The effect was either deemed minimal so as not to bother or had bigger challenges.

    After he was removed in 1969 they could not find any molds, drawings or anything on him. Baxter even said in a interview that there was nothing left of him no trail that he had even been there. He simply VANISHED.

    Sorry ... can't help but to laugh.

    How one single element in one, single existing ride (already pulling in crowds) ... is going to be "Disneyland's Second Coming" to DCA's massive Carsland opening next year .... is a bit of a stretch.

    What we need is one of these two rumors to come forth .. to "keep the crowds leveled" .. or "offset the crowds":

    Frontierland expansion
    New Tomorrowland

    Regardless of how funny you find it to be the HM could offset crowds with this unveiling. There are lots of fans out there. I could see lots of PR for this as well. But that is the DREAMER in me and why I do the job I do at Disney. Uncle Walt was a dreamer too so you go ahead and laugh. But while you're laughing Im dreaming and scaling things.

    That makes absolutely no sense. The attraction was being manufactured in duplicate for its inclusion at the Magic Kingdom. This is also at the time when the people who made the original drawings and molds were all still present, meaning the capability to reproduce the figure and effect was still very much present.

    You can watch the interview on youtube from baxter telling that they were missing, At this time he was just a ride operator on the attraction. Disneyland History 1969 - Mystery of the Hatbox Ghost - YouTube

    You can watch it there where he talks about being a ride operator when it opened and when the stuff went missing

    To PoisonAppleDear............
    My reaction is not a reflection of you (meaning, I'm not getting "personal") .... or your dream of working for Disneyland. That's amazing and awesome .. and I wish you well ... and I hope the politics within Disney don't ruin your dream of making a longterm career for them.

    My reaction is to the core group of extreme hardcore Haunted Mansion fans who no doubt see this as something "SO ENORMOUS". That's fine and all ... but lets pull back and look at the grand scheme of things.

    Carsland is going to reach MILLIONS to come flooding the gates to see what is offered .. and the spread will be huge.

    Then we have one cool effect ..... that reaches a very specific minority of fans.

    So .. lets keep it in perspective.

    Some people are really going to care.

    Like the types who go to Comic Con in San Diego .. and a group of Annual Passholders heavy into The Haunted Mansion.

    Then there are going to be the throngs of millions vacationing in Southern California at any given time following the opening of Carsland .. who will be coming from Dayton Ohio ... to Sydney Australia ... to Rome, Italy .... to Patterson, New York .. to Anchorage Alaska .. to Toronto, Canada .... (in the words of that king from Siam) ... etc .. etc .. etc.

    So ... my apologies for my long-winded explanation....

    But it's a simple: Haunted Mansion Hat Box Ghost will reach several thousand ... to Carsland's millions.

    That does not back up your claim that everything went missing after removal. It happened some time between then and the date of the interview. And even if that did some how happen, the people who created it in the first place were still there. Did they somehow forget?
