    Re: Son of "Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect," or The Thread 2

    How did I miss the other thread?

    I love that sign so I hope they don't take it out but last time I checked Disney did not care what I think!

    I'll let GRD answer that one, if he's so inclined. I think that Disney looks at things on a case-by-case basis: Is it really worth it to go after this guy over here for copyright violation? Will it be bad publicity to go after that guy over there? There are lots of things out there that are technically illegal that the Mouse doesn't seem to bother with.

    Re: Son of "Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect," or The Thread 2

    Needless to say, I'm very happy to see The Thread return with a vengeance, and I'm hoping to be more active in its latest incarnation than I was in the first.

    I just rode HM yesterday (I love being able to say that! ), and there's no hint of the exit sign. I don't remember exactly where that sign used to be in the exit area--one of you told me it was on a wall protruding from the end of the HHG crypt, and that wall was removed for accessibility. My memory of the sign seemed to be of it being on the wall at the top of the ramp, just before you turn right and then left and exit the crypt. Anyway, the area didn't seem any different to me, though I hadn't ridden HM in two years, so I could be wrong.

    As I said before, I'm a bit indifferent about whether or not the sign returns. It always struck me as a little bit out of place, so things feel a little more cohesive now...but the sentimental value of the sign makes me want it back. Oh well.

    I'm glad to see "the thread" is back in the land of the living...

    A little note on the "Witch of Walpurgis" Portrait:

    I was looking around on Wikipedia and found this article it seems the name Walpurgis is derived from Walpurgisnacht (witches' night) which is celebrated in Germany and many other European countries... anyways here is the link to the article:

    Ahhhh... so that was you who left that comment in my blog...

    Anywho, heres the deal. A lot of the stuff that is sent to me is sent under certain stipulations. The person who sent me the scans of the blueprints, I won't say who they are in Disney, asked that I try and remove dimensions as much as possible from the prints that they had sent. A lot of the times with the artwork I post, I am also asked to change things up a bit. I was also asked never to post information about how to get places backstage at the mansion. Not only is it good to keep that for the security of CM's and the property, I think a lot of CM's would be upset with me if I did. Its best to be safe than sorry.

    As for that website... Note that a lot of the items are just photoshopped pics. Not real items. There is also the disclaimer about how there is artistic liscence and what you see isn't exactly what you would get... Buyer beware.

    Re: Son of "Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect," or The Thread 2

    Greetings,

    I only recently discovered the "old" thread, and read through the whole thing in a few days, when time permitted. Awesome stuff, and I'm particularly impressed by the lack of bickering. In fact, I generally avoided forums such as these, as I have little patience for such nitpicking.

    Anyway, I've got a question. Does anyone have any interior shots of the facade of the WDW mansion? The front door probably doesn't open, but there must be a way into there, as I'm sure they must have to maintain the "floating candle" gimmick. I've heard it's nothing special, but I've always been curious.

    Thanks!

    The only thing that could kill this thread is a Wooden Stake, Silver Bullet and a bucket of holy water.
