    Re: Big changes coming to the Haunted Mansion...

    It says that these changes will not make it on March 10 because of late notice so I guess it will pretty much be the same when it reopens that day.

    Definitely, since it reopens March 11. I think it's only the new hitchhiking ghosts that will be added later; my understanding from the wording of the article is that everything else is in place.

    They're not using my Eddie Murphy as Madam Leota idea. (Is this why I can't get a job in imagineering?)

    this would be so amazing

    especially if it was random, like every hour leota would vanish in a poof of smoke and Murphy would be there for 15 minutes

    I'm excited! If anything they will be evidence of how cool the POTC changes will be!

    Great. Now I've got the voice of 'Donkey' from Shrek in my head, being the 'ghost host' on the ride.

    These changes look really interesting to me, can't wait to see them!

    The bride effect sounds just like the new "living-dead" pirate being added to POTC. Same effect... different character / setting. Might as well take advantage of new technology where ever they can.

    The iconic "Hitch Hiking Ghosts" who appear in your doom buggy via those magic mirrors will make the jump to the 21st century. Instead of the extremely simple figures that barely nod their head as they appear in your car because they are literally mannequins on sticks attached to a turntable behind the two-way mirrors, more advanced and animated figures will now join you. They'll be able to move their arms and hands and really be expressive as they appear to interact with you in the vehicle.
    By "Make the jump to the 21st century" they're just talking about the technology, right, not the design? We're not going to see gang members looking for a ride on our way out, are we? (I can just see them trying to stick Snoop Dogg in my Doom Buggy...)

    Probably, hence the "iconic." Dudes have basically been the ride's mascots since it opened, their basic design isn't changing any time soon.

    Re: Big changes coming to the Haunted Mansion...

    As I posted elsewhere, I'm looking forward to the changes. As long as Disneyland continues to grow and change, it gives people who have already visited an excuse (if we need one) to go again. Showcasing new technologies and change is what the park is all about. I'm surprised it has taken THIS long to update one of the older attractions. My only regret is that it will be years before I see any of the changes

    Hey...the Pirate Captain was iconic...and look what happened to him! Mark my words: Haunted mansion II will come out with Nelly, Eminem, and Kanyae West as the Hitch Hiking Ghosts, and the three "old" ghosts are toast!
