    Phantom Manor Music in HM??

    A friend of mine told me that in the early 90s, when Disney Paris had just opened, they did an experiment and put some of the music from Phantom Manor into the Florida Haunted Mansion, but it was so unpopular that they had to remove it.....

    Does anyone remember? is there any truth to this? or am I the victim of an untruthful f(r)iend?

    I don't know about in the HM, but I do know they play pieces of the Phantom Manor medley, as well as some of the score from Paris' Timekeeper, at the ticket plaza/turnstiles in the Magic Kingdom.

    I thought the queue had some music from the Phantom Mannor.

    near the old keelboats dock.

    They play from Disneyland Paris' PM - The Music box at the Gazebo in Queue- at DL's HM in the queue near some type of masoleum near the railroad outside on the side of the Mansion.

    They might have also played parts of the Timekeeper in TL, not in the actual attraction (it had a different score than the original, though same composer), but in the area music. I know DL does in the Observatron.

    With the bad conditions of the audio tracks and systems in the MK's HM, it's amazing you could even recognize what they are playing at all!!!

    I don't know if it's deteriorated again in the last month, but when I visited the HM in January, the audio actually, to my great surprise, sounded pretty good.

    I can't possibly see how the PM music could be unpopular at all. However, it would not suit the Florida Mansion at all.

    DL's HM used the PM musicbox for its fastpass area when the ride used fastpass, and still uses it in the queue itself during the holiday layover. That's the only thing I've heard of it at DL.

    Well, if it's played at the turnstiles and at the Monorail stations in WDW, it's played in the Opera House lobby at DL, since the music loop is the same. (It was a very weird moment when I figured that out.) There are a couple of songs in that loop that I don't recognize, but I couldn't tell you if they were from Phantom Manor.

    Yes, it is from Phantom Manor. I love that loop. Some very intersting choices on that loop, but still, every time I hear it, it gets me all excited about WDW.

    Didnt they recently, like in the past 2 years, change the music loop at the enterance to the magic kingdom and replaced it with a generic loop of songs from disney movies?
