    New Haunted Mansion for DL, is it not too far behind for WDW?

    I've been out of the loop so pardon me if I'm bringing up old news. But DL's Haunted Mansion is getting a brand new story line and some additions/changes. Here is the article and photos:

    Is WDW's HM going to suffer the same fate?

    I'm kind of on the fence with this change. On one hand, I really think that HM needs a facelift, as it ages its starting to feel more like a haunted house on halloween. But then on the other hand, I'm not sure that changing the story wouldn't really just be too much for us die hard HM fans.

    I'm always one for change, like I'm excited about the changes at POTC, but HM is just one of my old favorites. I guess in the end changing the story would rank right up there with, I don't know, taking out space mountain or something.

    No...not the Haunted Mansion! Well, at least leave WDW's alone until they gauge the reaction from DL. It will be interesting to see what happens now that Pirates is being renewed and with the HM possibly being renewed. Hopefully Disney will still keep the magic which continues to draw us to these rides, even though the rides themselves are fairly old.

    Well I've already seen video's from the new additions so far to HM in DL and photos and lemmie tell ya, I LOVED it. It wouldn't hurt the ride at all rather make it so much better and spookier. Especially the new Bride. OMG she freaked me out. Here's a video and if you go to DoomBuggies.com you can see photos in their forums.

    I have mixed feelings. I guess I wouldn't mind seeing it but they HAVE to make it amazing because I love the haunted mansion. This new version better do it justice.
