    Haunted Mansion 50th. Changes?

    In the 2004 annual report it hints that Haunted Mansion will get a few changes and enhancements for the 50th. like what their doing with Space Mountain. I remember reading that the original plan was to revamp 5 classic disney rides (haunted mansion, pirates of the caribean, space mountain, its a small world, and jungle cruise). Has anyone heard anything more about this?

    I have to say that this makes me nervous. The first time the rumors hit about "enhanced" versions of old attractions for the 50th, I cringed. I still don't trust this idea. The first thing that came to mind was George Lucas and the Star Wars Special Editions. Sometimes, things are left better untouched. 'New' does not always mean 'better' and I would hate to see Disneyland ruin some of its best attractions like Pirates and the Haunted Mansion. But, to play devil's advocate with myself , the Nightmare makeover is incredible... Thoughts on this?....

    Lets just say it will be spiced up when you see. I already was told what happened to the Mansion.

    It usually takes 3 weeks for the Holiday removal.. but, since the enchancements and the installation of a brand new exit ramp, they needed another 2 weeks..in total of 5 weeks..which is normal. What you hear is rumors..thats why when I received info, I got it from one of the techs, the incredible ideas they are coming up with... Im just wanting to go back "home"!! But look for a possible.. January 24th re-opening!!! But, like I mentioned before... the new enhancements are going to be fantastic and quite interesting!!! "As they say..Look Alive!"

    This is all I care about, if they get this fixed I'm happy, having to walk up that old broken speed ramp was a pain, and I am in pretty good shape too!
