    At Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, the organ in the Grand Ballroom is the same one Captain Nemo played aboard the Nautilus in Disney's 1954 film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    Disney opened two new businesses in Southern California in 1997:
    Club Disney (an imaginative play zone and entertainment complex for kids) and ESPN (a store retail outlet).

    At Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, the image of Madame Leota
    is that of former Disney Imagineer Leota Toombs Thomas. But Madame's voice is by Eleanor Audley, the voice of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty
    .
