    On the polar opposite of the topic, the thing I care for the least in the Mansion would be the dog and the caretaker. While I know I'm takin' it all perhaps a little too seriously, I'm a huge dog lover, and the sight of the painfully thin dog whimpering at the cemetery gate never fails to put a lump in my stomach (most of the time, I find myself looking anywhere but at him, but then again, I can still hear him). If the decision were up to me, and despite my usual strong attitude of laissez-faire when it comes to classic Disney attractions and everything inside of them, I'd swap out the dog for a model with at least no ultra-visible ribs showing.

    Why is the dog so thin to begin with? Never thought of that.

    ...but a human struggling to get out of a coffin is OK? Get over it!

    Where is the pet cemetery and Toad's crypt? I've never seen those.

    Confusion

    I thought the person crying for help was always behind the bulging, locked door?! Is it definitely from the coffin? Maybe I am confused, but I remember the hands prying the coffin open looking like a dead, decomposing person . . . not someone who has recently been "buried alive".

    Maybe this sounds boring, but one of my favorite parts is the library scene. My cart always goes by too fast and that seems to be one of the least lit areas. I never have enough time or light to look at all the details, but I am totally intrigued by the scene.

    The hands prying the coffin open are skeletal I believe. Here is a pic

    Yes. This is how I remember them. Wouldn't that imply that the person trying to come out of the coffin was trying to "get us" (ya know, Michael Jackson thriller type emergence) rather than crying to get out?

    I dunno. I just always thought that the plead for help came from behind the locked door in the hallway. Is there an expert with any clarification?

    Lou, How Do You Know?

    Lou,

    Why were you in the cast members room, and how does one get to go there?

    I've been there a few times, from backstage tours, to having been taking in by a CM, to traveling with people with mobility issues

    When I was a kid, my brother and I used to love to do this, as your doombuggy tilts back, just as it straightens out, the doombuggy in front of you tilts back really close to you, and then we would knock on the back of that doombuggy, and we would always laugh and hope that the people in that doombuggy would think that it was part of the ride!

    I love the hitchhiking ghosts part! We like to tickle him or put our fingers in his nose etc. Fun times!
