    Haunted Mansion Photos

    Has anyone else heard the rumor about the possible installation of an on-ride photo purchase at the end of the HM (much like Splash Mountain, ToT, etc.)

    A number of people have mentioned that there may be the addition of an on-ride photo taken of you in the Doombuggy along with one of the Hitchhiking Ghosts...

    Anyone have any info or comments?

    Ace -- I haven't heard that rumor yet. It does make a good photo opportunity.

    Although, I am skeptical of anyone touching my favorite ride. :-) where would they put the purchase a pic area? hmmm - The more I think about it... the less I like the idea.

    I'm with you... although it sounds good in theory (getting the picture, that is). I don't like the idea of changing up the exit courtyard area to put in a shop to pick up your photos in.

    Leave the classic attractions alone.

    Well, I don't know if the rumor is true or not. But, look at Buzz - they added a picture on that ride!

    I remember hearing this rumor two years ago. It was said the opening date on it was going to be in the fall of 2002. I was all excited about it, but when we got to HM for MNSSHP that year, there was no sign of work on it Bummer, it would have been a good MNSSHP souvenir.
    I think it would be cool, just set up the stop to buy right outside the gates of HM.

    why not convert part of the shop that now sells villains, nightmare & mansion merchandise to sell the pics. I know it's kinda small, but i think it could be a good location that would not require dramatically changing the rest of the area.

    and while their at it they need to change the signage for the shop. when they changed it to a "viallains" shop they never took down the signage hanging over the door from when they sold kitchen products there.
    This space designated as a DRAMA FREE ZONE

    My opinion? Add some cool HM merchandise, but touch nothing inside the gates.

    I have heard about this for a while now. I don't think it will happen, though it would be a cool photo. It would be hard to capture the ghost with the method they use. The ony way to relly do it would be to overlay the ghost on the photo. They would have to match the doombuggie and you up with the correct ghost as well.

    I've kinda always wanted a on-ride photo of the Haunted Mansion with the Hitch Hiking Ghosts, but I couldn't see how it would be done while on the ride.

    Do they still have that photo shop in the Main Street area with all the different backgrounds? I'm not sure how popular it would be, but could thay just add a doombuggy/hhg template and place you in there correctly? It won't be the same as getting you on the ride, but it would make a great photo for us HM fans!

    That would be a great background. They do still have that shop with the backgrounds. Not sure what BG's though.

    I will have to post a pic of my front yard halloween decorations once they are set up... your favorite buddies (mine too) try to catch a ride from passerby's. they light up nicely at night with blacklights.

    I should have them installed around the 1st weekend in October. remind me to post pics.
