    Haunted Mansion Question

    Normally, as you pass the Grandfather Clock with the 13th hour on it, you hear the Ghost Host say: "Perhaps Madame Leota can establish contact. She has a remarkable head for materializing...the DISEMBODIED!"

    But during the past 2 years he hasn't said it. I personally think that it is extremely effective and it is one of my favorite parts of his dialogue. It sort of sets the scene for the room ahead. Without it, it doesn't feel the same.

    Why doesn't he say it anymore???

    ALSO,

    I heard they were going to make the bride look better??? when will this happen???

    For some reason they cut that line from the ride, I remember someone posting that here.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Question

    When the attraction opened, those Ghost Host lines from the coffin in the conservatory to the seance circle were not there. They were added in the early 90's. WDI removed them again early last year. It makes more sense that way because the Ghost Host says, "Shhhh! Listen..." You're supposed to be listening to the spirits trying to materialize.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Question

    They were there originally, but they were quickly removed by the original Imagineering team. They were restored in 1995 without proper authorization. They were removed again in May, 2006. The executive memo ordering their removal has been posted. More info here:

    Long-forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect?

    Lots of uninformed speculation as to why the lines were removed. They were in fact removed because (1) pure sound effects are supposed to "tell the story" in the upstairs corridor, and (2) the lines last too long and step on Mdm Leota's spiel.

    I'm glad this got posted because I thought I was nuts and just not hearing it the last time I went.

    I miss that line too.

    As for the bride being updated, I heard they were doing that at WDW first or something. Either that or I'm terribly mistaken. I do hope they make Constance look better though. While I do think she is a cool new addition (although I REALLY loved the old bride), I think she looks kind of bad.

    Actually, in The Thread, I believe it was discussed that the "Shh... Listen" was related to an effect that was intended to be in the Endless Hallway. This would make sense, because the line is said right as you're passing the Endless Hallway. The effect would have consisted of seeing (and HEARING) the shadow of footsteps coming down the Endless Hallway towards you, ending in a blast of cold air hitting the Buggies.

    But I might be wrong... maybe HBG2 or GRD999 can clear this up...

    Re: Haunted Mansion Question

    I hadn't really noticed that before. Thanks for pointing it out.

    As for the new updates to the ride, from what Al said in his last update, we would be getting them after WDW gets them done. So probably during the take-down of the HMH overlay I would guess.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    It was most assuredly not. It's been gone for awhile.

    I apologize then...maybe it was just in my head. You hear it enough times it just sticks

    I wish they'd say "Shhhhh, listen" in the foyer and stretching room.
