  • Good Idea or Bad Idea: A Haunted Mansion Themed Restaurant!

    Lately I've been looking at the dining experiences at both WDW and the Disneyland Resort and would love to experience a dark atmosphere resturant like the Disneyland's Blue Bayou and Epcot's Mexico Pavilion.

    Has anyone else ever thought about this spooky dining experience. Not sure if there's room next to the Haunted Mansion to build at any of the parks but I'm sure something could be done...

    Oh... imagine the crying children scared of the atmosphere... I wouldn't think WDI's would make it that scary.

    What do you think?

    An interesting concept, that's for sure. I'm all for anything HM related, and would love to see how they might incorporate ride effects into a restaurant. Possibly have a ballroom themed dining area? Maybe they could find a place for the poor Hatbox Ghost in there!

      Could be cool to have a couple dining areas available, the ballroom and the back patio of the mansion overlooking the graveyard. Countless effects possibilities come to mind for both of those.

      I'd eat there. Could serve creole and southern fare with that elegant "i live in a mansion" twist.

        Wasn't that one of the original ideas for the HM? I thought I read that was where Marc Davis originally wanted to put the changing portraits...in a haunted style restaurant. However they felt the theming would encourage customers to sit there for hours which is of course not optimal for profits.

            You are correct.

            It would be cool, but I don't think in the whole scheme of things it would work out well.

            Now if you perhaps wanted to plus one of the many already existing dining establishments in NOS and perhaps make it more HM-esque, I'd totally love that.

            NOS has enough restaraunts...there are other places in the park, however, that could dreadfully use more of them.

              Perhaps a theme for the next disney cruise ship by why would the park need a resturant themed to a ride thats there already?
              There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

                        First Adventureland needs some more realestate, although they really need to do something with Aladins Oasis.

                          Thats exactly what I was thinking. I really like the idea of a HM restaurant.

                            Would be cool to have the kitchen down a hallway. Door off to actual kitchen back 10 feet to the right. Hallway goes on back seemingly for 70 feet or so behind that and use the ToT ghost in the hallway effect to have ghosts randomly walking up and down the hallway from time to time. Random sort of things.
