    Does anyone else hate the 2006 bride in HM?

    I prefer the one that was in there before the 2006 bride was added.
    The bride that is currently in there now...
    The projected video does not fit the face and its truly painful to look at.

    I don't hate the concept, The execution could be much better, though.

    Well look over to the Temple of the Forbidden eye. If they can update a ride with a very simple but better projection, why not do the same here?

    my favorite bride is still the beating heart bride. i found her the creepiest. the new one seems too 'in your face' creepy, and in doing so, makes her less creepy.

    I'm not sure that I ever saw the previous bride. She is a bit on the nose, but still creepy.

    I think it could have been much better if a quality projector was used. I know she is supposed to be a ghost or zombie or undead or whatever but its hard to see details. For example, for the longest time I did not notice that she was holding a hatchet.

    Edit:

    Let just talk about what everyone is thinking... why havent we replaced her with hatbox ghost yet?
    if ye be brave or fool enough to face a pirate's curse, proceed.

    Yes! I just rode HM last night and I was thinking as I went past her how bad she looks. The projection of her face seems like it's a little too big for the head that they made for her. Also, it's off to the side a little bit. They really need to clean that up, it's not like it would cost them that much money and it looks so glaringly bad that it's embarrassing. I do think that part of the problem is having the veil down and so it might help if they lifted it up, but it really needs to be readjusted.

    Re: Does anyone else hate the 2006 bride in HM?

    I'm not sure what Disney Anaheim is doing with the mansion. I love the concept of Constance the bride, but like other are saying it's looking outdated and the projection is poor right now. A simple upgrade would do wonders.

    Why the mansion here perplexes me is we have been hinged on the hat box ghost coming back for what seems like 4 years. Over in Florida they were extremely risky by completely redoing the hitchhiking ghosts, and that's something I would be disappointed if they brought here. I'm liking the fact that technology may bring us an amazing hat box ghost but will they make it too cartoony like Florida's hitchhikers? Either way I'm mixed.....I feel cheated on one hand but relived on the other.

    I don't hate it, but I would rather have the beating heart bride back.

    Yes. The projection is flat and unconvincing, and the actress who plays Constance is too corny.

    I realize she's portrayed as a psychopathic murderous broad with a hatchet, but I still feel she's been turned into the princess of the Haunted Mansion.

    Does anybody have a picture of the old bride. I really don't remember another bride in the HM.

    I feel like they are using WDW's HM as a test dummy personally.

    The beating heart bride was the scariest thing for me when I was a kid. She was the sole reason that I would only ride with my eyes closed and fingers in my ears. It was only when I grew a little older that I was able to go on and appreciate the attraction.

    Now that they have replaced her with the current version I definitely feel a loss. I like the effects with the wedding portraits, but the bride effect could be better executed. As others have pointed out, the face is too flat and you can tell that there is no depth.
