    Hatbox Ghost Pictures...

    Apologies in advance for those thinking the Hatbox Ghost has been installed, and additional apologies for taking the following pictures with a flash, but I was wondering if these have always been in Haunted Mansion. As I rode through last night and today I saw some photos on the walls in the hallway (after the floating candleabra) and Im pretty sure these pictures are of the Hatbox Ghost's face.

    Can anyone give me any more information as to why they would be there or if they've been there from the beginning?

    The Hatbox Ghost was a Character that never worked out. He would stand next to the bride, holding up a hatbox at eye level. The effect was supposed to be that his head would appear on his neck in one moment and in the box the next instant. Unfortunately, the imagineers never worked out the technological demands, leaving just the bride in that attic.

    The portraits you present have nothing to do with the old Hatbox Ghost, or the upcoming additions. These portraits are most likely images of the ghost host, in a subtle manner offering the face of the voice.

    They were made with the molds of the hatbox ghost and the pop-up ghosts... they've been there ever since HM opened. It just made more sense to reuse molds and such and redress rather than make up completely new faces all the time. That's why you'll find some of the same AA faces in HM and PotC.

    The hat box ghost can still be seen in the Haunted mansion. His portrait appears above the "Tomb Sweet Tomb" sign in the hallway and he is also the face of the tall hitchhiking ghost. FYI

    I think the demands were worked out, (he supposedly worked in WED Headquarters) it's just that the close proximity of the ghost meant neither head was ever truely invisible thanks to the lights that illuminated the other head. This combined with the short amount of time people saw him as they traveled by left the Imagineers decideing to just leave him out.

    I believe the Hat Box ghost was where the bride is now, the bride was where the shadow playing the piano is now. The area with the bride is fairly dark, but apparently not dark enough for the Hatbox Ghost's gimmick to work.

    Those portraits on the wall are the same as always, but I don't remember blue wallpaper. That must be new. I always though the wallpaper was a brownish.

    Its blue. Been that way all along. It looks more like a dark purple. But I used a flash.

    If Big Momma had been in there she'd have smacked that camera right out of your hands! (at least that's what she told me)
