Since the changeover from Christmas to the Haunted Mansion's normal choas (and my many times visiting since) I've noticed that Madame Leota's crystal ball no longer floats. Has anyone else noticed this as well?
I don't see why this effect is so hit or miss, when its in the Holiday overlay she floats up and down as a ornament. I would assume they use the same mechanics to do that affect as the standard floating head version.
Maybe when they created the Ornament floating head they gutted the other standard version floating head.
Well, according to the Long Forgotten thread, in that room you actually become part of the seance circle. The orientation of the ride vehicles forces you to look directly at the ball. When it floats, it actually takes away from that focus. I like both versions though.
