    Compared to the castle... the mansion looks HUGE.

    Soon we will get to see what it looks like inside I hope.

    This is only the facade, the real and difficult work is all on the inside.

    I donīt think the facade looks mysterious at all. It looks like a tacky dolls house... or a play house:/

    Yup, I'm aware it's just the facade, but I'm still excited that the facade is done. I'm also pretty certain that a lot of the groundwork on the ride itself was built as the show building was being constructed.

    I can't wait!

    Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    Can only speak for myself, but the look strikes me as whimsical or picturesque, not tacky. LPS aside, I will be eager to hear from those of you who visit early on how different it is from a conventional Haunted Mansion. As of now, this ride is the only truly compelling reason for a special trip to HKDL for a SoCal resident.

    Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    ORDDU: My sisters and I just read an article right here on Mice Chat that claimed there would be a delay in Mystic Manor's opening. Instead of opening in the Spring of 2013 it is now claimed that the attraction won't open until Summer of 2013.

    ORGOCH: Anybody know what's behind this? I got a powerful urge ta git myself mystified by Spring and don't wanna' wait 'til Summer. It's too hot over in Ping Pong Dizzyland. It's 'nuff ta melt down a witch whilst flyin' over the park 'cause a how dang hot it gits over there in the summer time!!!

    The building I think reflects its owner Lord Henry Mystic, who is meant to be very eccentric.

    Looks just like the Carson Mansion in Eureka, California.

    This would be a perfect fit for California Adventure. No?

    I think it would be. Perfect in so many ways. It's the kind of ride DCA needs. Since both inspirations for Mystic Manor (Carson Mansion in Eureka and the Glendale Santitorium in Glendale) are from CA, it really is a great fit. They would just need to change the setting from jungle to something more appropriate like a seaside bluff next to a Victorian amusement pier or a Victorian mansion among the redwoods in the forest (both very close to the environment around Eureka.

    Re: Hong Kong Disneyland Construction

    On the other side of the spectrum, I'd be all for adding a trackless, elaborate dark ride to DCA, but not another mansion-themed attraction. We already have the original Haunted Mansion across the way and regardless of whether it and Mystic Manor are two separate storylines, it'd be kind of overkill. In my opinion, it should remain unique to HKDL and nowhere else. Give me a reason to go to Hong Kong. There're plenty of other attraction opportunities for DCA.

    In regards to the mansion's appearance...I'm kind of getting what they're going at. It doesn't look mysterious or decrepit not only because of the more toon-theme but also because someone is still living there. Why would one so wealthy want to make their house look haunted? Whether or not it looks ominous and foreboding, it's colorful, fanciful, and greatly dwarfs the castle. I for one would be immediately attracted to go inside. I can't wait to see what the interior holds.
