    Talking CONFIRMED: Haunted Mansion updates

    I'll let Screamscape take over this for me today:

    SCREAMSCAPE:

    2007 - Haunted Mansion Refurbishment - (7/30/07) Screamscape has obtained some confirmed information about the Haunted Mansion rehab at Walt Disney World which will involve the addition of a new Staircase scene, and upgrades to two other scenes. They confirm that The Black Widow Bride (they call it the Haunted Bride) “who’s husbands always seem to get the ax…” is indeed coming to the attic. The all new floating Madame Leota séance scene will also be added. They mention that the new effects for the Bride and floating Leota are new and improved over what was just installed in the Disneyland mansion not long ago. The all new scene being added to a previously “dead space” will be the Staircase scene as described last week. In addition to this will also be the expected upgrades to the audio, lighting and effects systems. It’s great to see the Magic Kingdom finally wake up and start to take care of their classic attractions and upgrade the effects over time as has been going on at Disneyland for years now.
    I'm glad that we are getting upgraded effects from California. I'm also glad to read that they are finally doing justice to MK at WDW and not just some cheap copy from somewhere else.

    WDWMagic already reported on it. They even have a picture of a model for the new staircase scene, which looks like it came straight from an Escher painting.

    Does anybody know if part of the refurb is to deal with a future installation of The Nightmare Before Christmas overlay?

    hahah.. screamscape reporting something is FAR from 'confirmed'

    The fact the news has been covered here by few (months ago) and the info posted at WDWmagic weigh far more then screamscapes news.

    Don't hold your breath... although these upgrades would potentially make it easier to install the NBC Overlay, there are currently no plans to do such a thing.

    I can't see this happening just because of the difference in DL and WDW guests. A NBC overlay will cause the ride to go down for several weeks each year before and after Halloween which won't go over well with those thousands of tourists in WDW who might not be back to the park for several years. You can even see this now how so many people are upset about the current refurb. I imagine more tourists would want to see the ride in the original form anyway.

    I know this is very hard for everyone but it's only a couple more months to wait and see what is actually there. Speculation is only going to bring alot of dissappointed fans if it's not done.
