    Disney Tidbit of the Day

    Disney's Haunted Mansion film was not the first attempt to tie a movie to the attraction. In the early 1990s, when Jeffrey Katzenberg was head of the Disney Studios, he wanted to produce movies based on theme park attractions. A Haunted Mansion script was commissioned but it languished in development.
