    Why must you always be the voice of reason? Stop it.

    I still remember the TTA refurb and cringe with the new and improved imagineers audio. Hope they are just doing some house cleaning and tweaking.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I try to be reasonable once a day everything after that is full out madcap wackiness !

    There is some room for hope when to comes to HM in light of what a truly great job they did witht the refurb a few years back.

    Exactly. I think the HM represents something of a redoubt at Glendale when it comes to toying around with new attractions, but that's just an opinion.

    Sometimes the suits get it right and let the imagineers run with a good idea.

    i have heard that this screen is just temporary until they finish new effects where the mirrors are... i am unsure however if the mirrors are still there when they reveal it though...

    Apparently Judy is replacing Paul Frees' narration.

    "Our library is well-stocked with priceless first-editions; only ghost stories, of course. Want to understand them? Thank the Phoenicians."

    On that note...

    I don't know why the Dench narration is so despised. Don't blame her (she seems to be evoked as some sort of figurehead) - she had no idea what masterpiece she was helping deface. Blame the Show Writers at WDI.

    Isn't the new Mansion going to have "SIEMANS" projected on the facade?

    ...and a wand fixed to the roof of the conservatory to celebrate the upcoming year 3000.

    And then, after 3000, it is left up for a further swathe of years as a "commemoration of the magic" or something similarly sugary.

    it was a mausoleum of a celebration that took place almost 10 years prior... and the one on HM would be a real mausoleum...

    Not as such. They keep me off the books for tax and welfare purposes, and I only accrue about 10 working days a year.

    She was probably trying to suggest something, given the mood-lighting and...

    ...but as I don't want to get banned, I shall refrain.

    The new ghosts look nice but they do seem to be covering up the old ones while a rehab of some sort if done so they can still keep the place open. Still love the old ones, esp with kids.

    Was never the biggest fan of Haunted Mansion...actually been a few trips since I've been on it.

    Wasn't Toontown Fair supposed to be temporary? Just like other things in Disney World...if something is temporary, and catches on, it's still labeled temporary but isn't justified as so

    But I still do remember the end of Haunted Mansion, even though it's been a while. I think the change to the ending would give me an incentive to both want to go on it again and to avoid it...go on to see the change since it's been awhile, not go on because of that same fact because of the changes...I probably should get to that attraction sometime in the future, though, just because it's been so long since I went on it last.
