    Faces recycled here!

    One of our members, GRD999, hosts an informative blog, which you can read at ghostrelationsdept.blogspot.com. Something I learned involved the re-use of faces from various attractions. What follows is the blog entry for Labor Day weekend, and allow me to also add the face to the right for your consideration in this picture:


    The blog article begins below:

    "Haven't I seen you before?

    At all of the Haunted Mansions at every Disney park, many characters have a unique style. However, many figures share the exact same face. It is possible that numerous different characters may have the exact same face, yet sometimes its indistinguishable because of the different paint styling, clothing and wigs that they wear. Not only are the faces interchanged throughout the Haunted Mansion, but they also span to other attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Carousel of Progress.


    Graveyard Hornblower and Carlos the dunking Magistrate


    Ballroom Hearse Guest with Umbrella and Auction Wench


    Ballroom Table Peeker and Ballroom Organist



    Graveyard Horn Blower and Ballroom Birthday Girl

    Other characters appear between the Haunted Mansion and Pirates such as one of the men in line to get dunked, the man sitting on the porch of his bayou shack and the king sitting at the ballroom table. The grandmother from Carousel of Progress is also the grandmother sitting in her rocking chair in the ballroom. One of the ballroom dancers is also the father from Carousel of Progress.

    The faces are used in many different places but due to the pace we are traveling as well the amazing paint jobs placed on the figures by the Artist Preperators, we never know the difference. Next time you are taking a tour of the mansion or floating through that pirate sacking, see how many faces you can find that are similar."

    Re: Faces recycled here!

    Not really all that suprising since oftentimes Imagineers would base faces off of those they knew. As there weren't that many imagineers in the beginning, faces got recycled often

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Great thread Froggy! I have never noticed all the similarities and as you noted since they are all made up so differently our minds automatically assume they are not the same. The biggest one to me is the ghost birthday cake candle blower who is also a man in the graveyard...amazing!

    PS - congrats on making the round up!

    My mom took the From Imagination to Celebration tour last weekend, and her guide pointed out that many of the AA faces are duplicates. Her favorite pair was the fat wench chasing the pirates and the accordian-playing pirate.
