  • Haunted Mansion 50th. Changes?

    In the 2004 annual report it hints that Haunted Mansion will get a few changes and enhancements for the 50th. like what their doing with Space Mountain. I remember reading that the original plan was to revamp 5 classic disney rides (haunted mansion, pirates of the caribean, space mountain, its a small world, and jungle cruise). Has anyone heard anything more about this?

    Here's a link to the report. There's a lot more in there starting around page 16:

      I have to say that this makes me nervous. The first time the rumors hit about "enhanced" versions of old attractions for the 50th, I cringed. I still don't trust this idea. The first thing that came to mind was George Lucas and the Star Wars Special Editions. Sometimes, things are left better untouched. 'New' does not always mean 'better' and I would hate to see Disneyland ruin some of its best attractions like Pirates and the Haunted Mansion. But, to play devil's advocate with myself , the Nightmare makeover is incredible... Thoughts on this?....

        Lets just say it will be spiced up when you see. I already was told what happened to the Mansion.

              Could be they are doing it now? They are sure taking a long time for the holiday removal! Seems like they are taking longer this year. It also make me VERY nervous too!

                  It usually takes 3 weeks for the Holiday removal.. but, since the enchancements and the installation of a brand new exit ramp, they needed another 2 weeks..in total of 5 weeks..which is normal. What you hear is rumors..thats why when I received info, I got it from one of the techs, the incredible ideas they are coming up with... Im just wanting to go back "home"!! But look for a possible.. January 24th re-opening!!! But, like I mentioned before... the new enhancements are going to be fantastic and quite interesting!!! "As they say..Look Alive!"

                      This is all I care about, if they get this fixed I'm happy, having to walk up that old broken speed ramp was a pain, and I am in pretty good shape too!

                                Can you fill us in on what the changes are on the 24th if not sooner? Not sure when I'll get to go down to Disneyland again, but the Mansion is my fave so I must know.

                                  One of my favorite attractions at Disneyland. I hope these changes for the 50th are as great as the Holiday makeover is. Please keep us informed as to what's happening and when the attraction comes back up I am sure there are more than one on this board who will be there and then report, in detail, what the changes are for those of us not able to make it that day.

                                    Forgive me if this is an overly ignorant question, but will the Haunted Mansion be getting the NBC overlay this year? I've heard both that it will be, and that it will be remaining original year-round for the 50th, so I myself don't know. I'm wondering because I go in the winter every year, and as much as I do love the NBC overlay I haven't seen it in its original glory since the overlay was introduced.
                                    Either way, looking forward to the enhancements!

                                      Definitely..On the 23rd (I'll give an earlier scoop), I will give you ALL the info of the enhancements... and this year will 'probably' be the last HMH!!

                                        The last time for the HMH overlay? I thought it was really popular though? I like em both, but obviously if only one was to stay then I'd pick the original.

                                        And when you say this year, do you mean later this year in October will be the last time, or that we've already seen the last of the HMH?
