    Haunted Mansion Refurb?

    Do you think they'll add the stretching room effects from Florida to DL's Mansion?

    You mean the creaking noise?

    I hope they add the "floating" ghost host voice instead of the current "jump from speaker to speaker" ghost host voice. The creaking is a nice touch too.

    I also hope they add the beefed up thunder and clearer and bassy crash at the end sound, those are really good upgrades.

    I think it's possible because we have Tony baxter in charge-hurray! I wouldn't mind the stairway effect too(only problem with that is we probaly don't have enough room for it)

    I had put up an update on re-opening day - there are a lot of similarities now to the Disneyland version. The staircase scene is different, but the floating Leota and attic scene are going to be familiar to you.

    I had my update here:

    They did a great job with it.

    And here are a couple of night pics from the Halloween party:

    The Haunted Mansion is fine. Leave it alone.

    I am also a staunch supporter of keeping the separate Disney parks different enough to warrant visiting even if you live in Orlando or Anaheim or whatever. I don't like cloning attractions and that goes for upgrades and makeovers too.

    Well, the updates done to Florida's Mansion are just AMAZING! Trust me, they'd really enhance the experience!

    Re: Haunted Mansion Refurb?

    The idea from Disney was that if the new upgrades for WDW were successful, they would be brought to DL, too. We aren't finished with our upgrades in the first place...

    While the upgrades to WDW are great, I don't think they're all that huge in terms of making things different (except for Constance). Therefore, I don't think it would really big that big of a deal for DL's HM to recieve those other tiny upgrades. I'd understand protesting about making our HM like Phantom Manor, but the WDW upgrades? Not that big a difference to me...it just improves the special effects currently in place.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Refurb?

    The creaking...meh, cool idea, but I'd rather not have that here. I think the pre-"there's always my way" silence of the stretching room (besides the Ghost Host) is a little ominous in and of itself, plus it creates a nice contrast with the stormy sound effects in the portrait hall.

    The moving Ghost Host audio could be very cool. I haven't experienced it in person at WDW, so I don't know how good it is. I guess my main concern is that it could potentially come off as gimmicky, especially if the audio is moving around too quickly. IMO, it should be a rather slow motion--not drawing attention to itself, but instead subtly increasing your cadaverous pallor with its unnerving strangeness.

    The stairs...well, they'd be cool, but there is quite literally no room for it anywhere in our version except the loading area. They might work there; it's more or less the same amount of space as in the WDW version, since the two areas actually correspond to each other in terms of track layout within the building. My concern is the fact that the effect would be readily visible by the guests in the queue, so it would really need to hold up to close scrutiny. Also, I hope the effect doesn't require mirrors on the vehicles' left side, because if it does, it won't work in the Disneyland version. That's where you board.

    All I'm asking for is the new Ghost Host audio.

    well... there is a small number of people on the west coast who may never get to go to WDW , and vice versa
