    Haunted Mansion Type Rooms

    The decor theme of resorts seems to be heading in this direction so I believe that this is a very conceivable idea. I would agree that Disney would probably opt for redecorating a section of an existing resort over building an entire Haunted Mansion themed resort. This would be a fun themed room to stay in.

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

    Re: Haunted Mansion Type Resort

    I love the idea of a HM themed resort, but I think one themed to ToT makes more sense. Imagine a 1930's style high rise, with period bellhops and cigarette girls (selling candy and gum, of course...smoking is bad). You'd want to avoid the elevators, of course...

    Or how about a resort with several buildings, each themed to a different attraction. A haunted mansion, a building shaped like a pirate ship (for POTC, obviously...though maybe with Peter Pan themed suites), a building shaped like a Tibetan temple (for EE, with a gigantic animatronic Yeti in the lobby...I just love spending Disney's money...lol).

    The mind boggles...

    I don't think that's quite fair, considering all they've done with Disney CA, the Art of Animation resort and what's coming with the expansion of Fantasyland. Sure, they may not be announcing tons of new projects at the moment, but the things they have themselves tied up into right now are big expensive undertakings.
    Even with the economy the way it is I would be surprised if we don't start hearing about new things coming to the parks and resorts in the next year or so.

    I hear there's a minor Fantasyland expansion in the works also. Hey, is there a smiley for good natured sarcasm?
