Our awesome assistant, Tiffany, will be leaving us soon to return to college. I hope you’ve enjoyed her articles this summer! Here’s another goody!
Welcome, Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion!
The foreboding mansion at Liberty Square is home to 999 happy haunts. As mortals enter the mansion, a ghost host welcomes them, leading them to the first room where a portrait of Master Gracey hangs above a fireplace in several mortal states. As your eyes get used to the darkness, more doors open, leading you further into the darkness. The room reveals its true self with portraits hanging all around while you make a startling discovery that there is no way out! Of course, there is always the host’s way…
Just as hope is lost, a panel opens to other sections leading to your doom buggies that carry you through the rest of the tour. There is something around every curve, door and casket, along with creaky doors and floors. Madame Leota calls in the spirits from beyond as she floats in her crystal ball.
The spirits begin to materialize and assemble for a swinging wake. In the attic you meet Constance, who is known as the “black widow bride.” As you exit the house to the graveyard, the silly spooks come out to socialize and invite you into the celebration. However, be careful of the hitchhiking ghosts who are known to cause mischief to guests who stop by. Of course, you are always welcome to stay…just don’t forget to bring your death certificate.
It’s time to get out those scissors and glue sticks. Download these fun pintables from DisneyFamily.com and get your craft on! The Hitchhiking ghosts, Phineas, Ezra and Gus, have followed you home and are waiting to be put together.
