    New change at the end of Haunted Mansion (disney finds a new way to kill the magic)

    So disney has gotten rid of the mirrors at the end of haunted mansion... For those of you who don't remember the mirrors... At the end of haunted mansion you would pass by a set of mirrors and a ghost would "follow you home"... And in the mirror you would see your doom buggy and a ghost would be "inside"... Well disney has replaced the mirrors with just a screen... here's a video: YouTube - Haunted Mansion's new hitchhiking ghost projections at Walt Disney World
    Now I like the first part, where the three ghosts are shown with the great graphics, but I wasn't a big fan of the rest... The mirrors were magical for little kids... hopefully this doesn't stay

    I haven't clicked the link yet, and might when I get home from work. The existing effect is cute, somewhat effective, but serouisly outdated.
    Please visit my new DISNEY AUTOGRAPH website to check out my autograph collection!

    Really Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Are you kidding me?

    Are you actually kidding me?

    Why not use the technology to update the effect, rather than create something that looks as garish as that?

    Edit - read the comment about it being supposedly temporary. Well, here's hoping.

    I went there and read it too. It seems they are surmising. Haven't seen any post anywhere that says any comment was confirmed by Disney as temporary. Surprised Disney Blog didn't indicate it was a re-hab. Was it on Lou's news cast, I haven't seen yet?

    I'm just desperately clinging onto that little piece of hearsay, Gabe!

    The fact that it is a painfully-obvious screen aside, what sense does it make for them to be floating like astronauts past the DBs?

    Dunno if it's been on the NewsCast. I only bother with the podcasts.

    Now raising the prices on food, I can understand (I might not like it, but at least it makes some sense)... Wasting the money on CGI to make these ghosts, I don't get it...

    I'm pretty sure CMs have said it's temporary.

    The word "temporary" is open to a great many interpretations, at least within the scope of the last twenty years of Walt Disney World. But I hope you're right.

    The thing is, I don't think - based on the previous refurb - that they would be so stupid as to do something like that in the Mansion. Remember those awful days when we thought we would be getting an Eddie Murphy AA?
