    How About A New Layover for Haunted Mansion....

    Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris is, for anyone who has ever been on it or read about it, pretty cool. Some would argue it's better then Haunted Mansion. Therefore, I think it would be a great idea if the next layover at Disneyland involved the Haunted Mansion, ala Haunted Mansion Holiday. Except this time the story could be changed to adopt parts of the bride storyline in PM, and Disney could use the original Vincent Price narration for the layover that was used only very briefly in Paris. For anyone who has never had the chance to hear it, here is a link to a video on youtube of the beginning of the ride and portrait gallery with Price's narration. It is truly awesome.

    The layover could happen around Halloween time, since Vincent Price is the master of the macabre and Phantom Manor is considerably creepier then HM. So, what say you MiceChatters?

    i wouldn't mind the vincent price narration, because Vincent Price is pretty cool. I like that version of narration on the ride (er... does that make sense?)

    We already got Jack Skellington and Vincent Price is already dead unfortunately.

    Overlay.

    And why open it at all. Just keep changing overlays. Just think of the CM and maintenance costs that would reduce.

    Re: How About A New Layover for Haunted Mansion....

    I would really like to see a Haunted Mansion overlay in the Haunted Mansion. I have not been able to ride the original in years because it seems the only time I can get down to DL is when the HMH is running

    I miss my HM!

    Wow... Vincent Price is scary. I like it, but if they're to do anything with that narration, they should bring it back to Paris.

    Re: How About A New Layover for Haunted Mansion....

    If they pulled Vincent Price's narration after he died, I doubt they'd bring it over here. This is a perfect example of another thread. Paris Disney interests me most because of Phantom Manor. If they had it here, no way would I spend big money to travel across the Atlantic.

    I'm cool with NBC HM for a few months. Let's not tamper too much with a true Disney Classic.

    Ours is perfectly fine. Why fix something that's not broken?

    Because if you ignore something long enough, it becomes complete doo doo (take for example MK's Haunted Mansion).

    Well they haven't ignored the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland at all. Thanks to the HMH overlay, the mansion is constantly improved. Look at Constance, the continually updated sound systems, improved effects such as floating Leota. The mansion consistently looks wonderful.

    well that was all for the 50th, before that it was getting out of date. And because of our 50th revamp WDW was complaing why us and not them, and now they're getting the treatment. Which I believe now will be kept up from here on out
