    New Haunted Mansion Queue

    The new queue is awesome. There is a divider in the middle of the walkway and the CM directs you to the right for "quick" and to the left for "fun". I think it should be left for "dead", get it, the quick and the dead? There are several equally awesome interactive displays, especially the organ which is named "Ravenscroft" for the late and grrreat Thurl Ravenscroft. It took about 5 minutes to get thru, but it was worth every minute. The old cemetery is still being refurbished. I have pics which I will try to post.

    I like the idea of getting to choose.

    I hope that feature stays.

    Would love to see your photo's JC!

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Trying to upload now, not having much success. I wish we had our old photo section back. OK, I have several on Flickr. Look for my pics under DWT Jiminy Cricket. Enjoy!

    Re: New Haunted Mansion Queue

    Overall... I don't think the queue is bad, just a little... confused.

    It is an interesting concept and some of the tributes are really neat, but I think putting the tombstones within grabbing distance of - let's face it - often stupid tourists is going to become a real problem, for one.

    If anything, I just think it needs more work.

    Re: New Haunted Mansion Queue

    The new queue seemed to be a big success with WDW vets, but a little confusing for first timers. The displays are all meant to be touched, especially the ones that make music and the bookcase. I am sure Disney will get the kinks worked out in time. The biggest problem is people taking pics and video and slowing things up for the impatient.

    Re: New Haunted Mansion Queue

    Is the "go through the interactive / skip the interactive" going to remain as standard, do you think?

    Re: New Haunted Mansion Queue

    Full apologies to the always-brilliant Widen Your World for this blatant, inexcusable and pre-meditated theft from the Facebook page, but the update I woke up to this morning was - I think - absolutely fantastic...



    Older WDW hands / US history buffs will get the whiskey connection.

    Re: New Haunted Mansion Queue

    As my germaphobe boss would ask about all of these new hands-on queues, where is the hand sanitizer?

    Seriously though I look forward to checking this out for myself in May. From what I have seen on the various videos it is a good distraction during days of big crowds.

    So 20K should we look for Liberty Square sponsored by Jack Daniels in the near future? Thanks for posting the great caption.

    I might be returning within the next year(depends on a few things) but I'm looking forward to seeing it. I also like that you're given the option of picking this new queue or going through the old one.
