    Angry A Bad Rumor...

    I heard a rumor that almost made me sick. I don't know that it's true. Somebody told me that the attendance of the Haunted Mansion was so low, if Haunted Mansion Holiday didn't boost the attendance, the Haunted Mansion would have been closed!
    Did you hear this? To lose the crowning work of Paul Frees and Thurl Ravenscroft would have been tragic. You saw what they did to Country Bear Jamboree and the Peoplemover...what would they have done? What would you have done?

    Is that solid concrete, or just your opinion?

    prior to HMH the HM was a walk on. It still kind of is without the layover. I think if they wanted to get rid of it they would not have put money into it for the holiday layover.

    IASW is a walk on most days also. I don't see them closing that one either.

    I don't put anything past the Walt Disney Company. Does that swampland happen to have a Spaceship Earth on it?

    The Haunted Mansion is a cult classic like Pirates of the Caribbean. It is a staple and even Disney knows that and it still makes them a lot of money through merchandise sales. Haunted Mansion is not going anywhere.

    They just added HMH to spice it up a little bit each year. Besides, closing the Mansion would probably do more harm to the park than anything else because that is a ride many visitors want to experience. Country Bears was different. That was never as popular amongst the crowds as compared to the Haunted Mansion.

    it's "solid concrete" for all intents and purposes.

    Never gonna happen. While the sentiments about it being a walk on are accurate, you have to take into account how many guests it can move in an hour.

    There are a lot of rides that move much less than the mansion does.

    The Mansion is equivalent to Pirates as far as achievement, nostalgia, fan following, popularity with the average visitor....

    Mansion will never leave.

    POTC will gt a wait. HM has always a walk on when I go by. Unless it's the HMH then it gets a pretty good wait time.

    They would only close it down to refurb it with something better, i could see them redoing the facade and stuff and try to advertise it as a "new" attraction, but why bother? It's attendance is fine and no one has much to gripe about it, especially with all of the money they've put in it to plus it the past few years

    The HM would be one of the highest capacity attractions at Disneyland (or WDW). Just looking online, it is sends about 2618 through at capacity. I wouldn't expect an attraction like that to have long lines! Same with Pirates (I didn't wait long for that even in the busy time of summer at DL, or WDW).

    I'd be surprised if Disney did anything with it anytime soon - the Haunted Mansion is a classic attraction.

    Mansion doesn't often have long waits yes....but it has huge like awareness factor among general visitors, fans, and even outside media in general...it's a classic, and no matter of the wait time, people always are riding it when i go...i very seldom see empty doombuggies. it just gets people on really quick. No way it's being closed.
