    Honorary House Guests: Haunted Mansion

    About a year ago, my fiance and I got engaged inside the Haunted Mansion elevator room. It was great, but our pictures turned out awful, as we only had cell phones on hand. So with our wedding upcoming, we decided to return and re-create our pics. We went immediately at park opening, and the HM cast members were very kind and supportive, and allowed us access to linger in one of the elevator rooms to get the right picture.

    But the most unexpected part of this is that afterwards, we were surprised with this certificate stating us as Honorary House Guests of the day. We were told it acted as a HM "fastpass" for the rest of the day, and we then signed a ledger in a separate book.

    Both my partner and I are longtime Disney fans, and we had never heard of this! I feel like I saw this appear once in a thread here ages ago, but searching for it came up with nothing. Has anyone else ever gotten one? The cast members said they can give out one a day, but don't always. We did notice this is numbered 131. If that's a true count, then indeed, they don't seem to give out many. Actual size of the paper is equal to standard 8.5x11 paper folded in half.

    In any case, it makes for a very unique wedding gift! Anyone else with any other info or stories to share about it would be welcome!

    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    I remember getting a Driver of the Day award for Mulholland Madness for taking pictures of the queue area. Like the award you got, I could use the award as an unlimited fastpass to Mulholland Madness all day.

    How cool! I never knew the Haunted Mansion had such a thing! Thanks for sharing! I wonder when they hand those out if they aren't handed out regularly?

    What a wonderful bit of Disney magic! I've never heard of these before, the only thing I'd ever heard of was that some were able to get a "death certificate", but I heard they discontinued that.

    Here is a link that you can make your own "death certificate" It may not be as cool as receiving it from the Mansion itself, but you can still get one!

    They also do this at Monsters Inc Mike and Sulley to the Rescue! At the opening of the ride they have a scream off and the winner gets a pic with Sulley and a Awesome certificate.
