Here I am for the first time writing in something for Disney World instead of Disneyland.
Specifically My opinion on the new HM interactive Queue,
I just do not like it, the interactive queue, For many reasons, The main reason is that there is no subtlety and it lets the cat out of the bag about how the ghosts are inside, Yes with a Name like Haunted Mansion one would assume that there are ghosts in there, but who knows what the tone of them would be, with the new interactive grave yard, well... yeah It comes off as kid friendly and kooky.
Now, I was looking at a video of the Queue, and I actually found a lot of parents felt that the interactive queue was wonderful, and that its a godsend for parents of very little kids, because it makes them actually want to ride the ride.
and I got into a very, short argument with one fellow commenter, Here are the actual quotes From THIS VIDEO
follow along and tell me, what is your opinion on the new queue.
First spoken by, FloridaHeartMomma
its not supposed to be scary! it's disney! it's supposed to be "kooky" and fun for children. the scariest disney has ever gone is "The Nightmare Before Christmas". C'mon, it's for kids people.
Scary Scott Responded
O.K. To say that because it is Disney does not mean that its automatically for kids.
Also The new queue erases all the sense of mystery to the haunted mansion making it seem fully kid friendly, really if you think about it, the ride isn't until after the attic scene. the first half from the moment you enter the stretching room, till you leave the attic is atmospheric and genuinely scary and creepy and has been at disneyland since 69 and Disneyworld since 71.
Ok, So with all said and done, tell me what side are you on? Post comments here and lets have a civilized and educated approach be made here.FloridaHeartMomma Came back with....
I'm really tired of ppl assuming that because it's a haunted mansion, it's supposed to be scary, and/or because other disney parks have decided to make their haunted mansion scarier, then WDW's HM must be scary too. On a level of 1 to 10 is like a 4 in scariness. WDW has decided not to make their mansion all that scary and has opted for a more "kooky" feel and parents of the park are overall appreciating that. It's well liked. So get over it everybody.
