I got to go to Disneyland last month and had such a great time. The new Haunted Mansion additions are subtle, but very cool. Question: Is the lightning-strike version of the changing portraits a brand new concept? Or is it the restoration of an old idea?
Someone told me that WDI was trying to return those portraits to their original state, as if the Mansion opened that way. I am too young to know.
Also, does the HM at WDW have the same changing portraits? I remember most of the walkthrough is eliminated or transfered to the ride. But I don't think the changing portraits are there at all. What a cool effect at DL.
