The music could start up and slow down like it was playing on an old record player.
    My mind is whirling with ideas. I like your idea, maybe even start with the white room but clearly broken some parts draped or "shut" (only very faint or no music) and then light's out for a second or 2 and then, backlight the dolls so they're only in silhouette and "reveal" either demonic writing you mentioned and/or things that wouldn't have been visible otherwise.

    If you want scary, go to the Knotts Scary Farm. DL is targeting the younger crowd. Someplace in between would be the Haunted Train Ride at the L.A. Live Steamers club near Griffith Park.

    I can describe one of the scenarios. The train goes between two hillbilly shacks with armed hillbillies on either side of the track. Google: ghost train for more info.

    I would add dark rides somewhere in the park showcasing some of the darker animated shorts that Walt did. The dark rides would be removable so they aren't always there. The lonesome ghosts comes to mind the mad doctor, maybe the old mill.

    I could see a Mickey Mouse Runaway Brain dark ride.

    I am glad that Disneyland is kept kid friendly. I'm a big scardy cat. I have a wonderful time with the ideas, but I would give a big PASS to attending a scary event at Disneyland.

    Great thread, BTW. I'd give Sleeping Beauty Castle a makeover, specifically a look that mimics the one from the film, when Maleficent cast the evil spell. It would be more scary, with fog and black water in the moat. Thorns and dead trees everywhere, and animatronic crows in various places of the castle. There wouldn't be much light shining on SBC. It would look dead and abandoned.

    It wouldn't be just for Mickey's, but the old Alien Encounter from the Magic Kingdom would fit exactly where Innoventions is now...

    Going off the suggestion for using outside properties, how about putting a bunch of Doctor Who monsters in Tomorrowland? Also put Weeping Angels in New Orleans Square and the hub.

    Chernabog comes to mind as well. Great idea!

    Give the walk through attraction a haunted maze-like makeover and it would be a hit attraction for sure.

    The only Disney attraction ever to be closed because it was too scary makes it's return. Love it!

    As a fan of Dr. Who I'd say, heck yes!

    Scary is more than things that go bump or jump at you. If I had a hefty budget and a green light, I'd turn that sad aberration of the Matterhorn & turn it into a Night on Bald Mountain complete with a Murphy sized animatronic Chernabog at the summit. Use the soundtrack from Fantasia. Skin the sleds with something dark. Change the gobos to ghouls rising to the top. Give the Harolds a vacation and replace them with animatronic demons. Toss in some fire and smoke & you've got a first rate attraction that harkens back to some classic Disney animation.
    Having a giant Chernabog gazing over Fantasyland would transform the entire area. It's never going to happen, but nice to think about.

    I know they were commercial failures, but how about mazes or attractions based on the film adaptations to Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes and the Watcher in the Woods?
    a Sleepy Hollow walk through would be great too.
    It's not scary, but how about a show based on the Skeleton Dance cartoon?
