    Neat and behind the scenes look at the Haunted Mansion!

    YouTube - The Haunted Mansion is visited by Kurt Russell & the Osmonds

    I found this video while looking for a ride through of the HM. The first part of the video is very neat.. Once you hit the 6 minute mark it is a little cheesy... But the first part is great!!

    Hate to say it, but I remember when that first came out on TV long ago, like 1962!?

    Ha! That was great! You can see how the Disneyland version is a little different after the stretching room. Those portraits are still there. My fave was the lady with the snakes. Funny to see a young Kurt and an even younger Donny.

    It's cheesy, but I love cheesy. I love seeing how high-tech some of those things were back then.

    You're right before the 6 minute mark it was pretty cool, after the 6 minute park it was as scripted as the WDW Christmas Parade. Right, Reeg? Correct, Peppa. lol

    I remember seeing this on Vault Disney once. We'd just come back to our hotel from a day at WDW.

    Speaking of Kurt Russell, I just saw him in The Barefoot Executive, a cute Disney film from the early 70's.

    I just loved seeing how they made the animatronics work and move... And seeing everyone smoking while in a work place.. Shows how dated it is. But the technology, attention to detail, and imagineering that went into it is just fantastic!!

    "Oh... that's wiiiild!"
    "Isn't that somethin'?"
    "Far out!"

    I'm laughing my butt off over here. Did people seriously talk like that in the 60s and 70s? Or was dialogue like that just made up and put into old TV shows like the Brady Bunch and this documentary.

    On the technical side though... that was suprisingly "high tech" for the time. Kind of neat to see some of that behind the scenes stuff from it's earliest stages.

    Wasn't Kurt Russell a big Disney movie star way back? How many was he in?

    The gentleman smoking the pipe kind of in the middle of the film is Yale Gracey. He was the lead special effects Imagineer for the Haunted Mansion. Thus, the name of our beloved Mansion " owner " is Master Gracey! But most of ya'll probably already new that.
    Question: How many Imagineers does it take to change a light bulb?

    Wow, that really is an awesome video, seeing I'm going to be an Imagineer when I grow up! 'Cept at the 6 min mark, I would have to agree, a little cheesy!!!

    Oh how I love the Haunted Mansion!

    When I grow up, I'm gonna be an Imagineer!
