    Haunted Mansion Refurb

    I've just read on another forum that a CM on the Keys to the Kingdom tour told his group that the HM will undergo a 16-week refurb starting Summer 2007. Has anybody heard any official confirmation of this?

    Re: Haunted Mansion Refurb

    Yeah, I read that also. Hopefully it's for the best. The renovation/refurbishment is supposed to start in May '07 and last 16-18 weeks.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Refurb

    Yeah the place should be closed immediately for repairs, but I guess Disney World is such a financial failure that they just don't have the budget right now

    No really though. It should have been closed a long LONG time ago.

    Something's going on with Mansion ... as to what, I'm not sure.

    But there will be some changes coming ... and, no, I don't mean the Nightmare overlay.

    If they would have kept up w/ it more over the years they wouldn't have to close it down so darned long this time...hopefully they'll refurb it but not mess w/ it too much as to change it...

    There are major issues with DACS right now, and the HM still uses DACS for audio. Expect a major re-working of audio on Mansion as well as Pirates in the coming months.

    Re: Haunted Mansion Refurb

    omg, Pirate audio is ABYSMAL! That is one of the major peeves from the rehab. We have 2006 audio comming out of 1973 speakers, which is why you can no longer hear "dead men tell no tales", the underscore, and why YO HO sounds all muffled at the end.

    As far as my Manse, our maintence guys have been trying thier damndest to restore lost audio tracks but they wont stay put. If they restore one, another goes somewhere else. Ex: the Teaparty ghosts were restored, thereby the monotone ghost is gone, etc. Hopefully ALL individual tracks will be working after the rehab.

    I really hope we are NOT getting DLs updates. In know they are going to massively refurb BOTH stretch rooms, which means there wont be much time for much else.
