Ever since I was a young girl I have been amused and fascinated by the 999 Happy Haunts and their not-so-humble abode. They always tell you that there is “room for one more” and ask for volunteers, so why not? I VOLUNTEER, DISNEY!
In all seriousness, the details of the mansion are something that scores of Disney fans adore and cherish. Just traveling through the mansion is a feast for the senses. You feel the chill of the breeze regardless of the weather outside, and you can sense the “spirits” all around you without fearing the “other side”. It is a grim grinning great time for all ages.
You begin in the all-time favorite, the Stretching Room, complete with the hilarious portraits and the introduction to our “Ghost Host”.
Just a bit later, after you find your way out of the room with no windows and no doors, you can see much from the comfort of your Doombuggy. These images are intentionally out of order, however, for I don’t want to spoil it if you have not yet ventured into the mansion yourself.
Lots of stairs. That could get confusing if one leaves a Doombuggy. I will wait for a better departure point.
Definitely leaving this lid intact as long as possible.
Ah, here we go! The Ballroom banquet. What’s for dinner?
Of course, I don’t think I could party on the chandelier above the table. Heights are not my thing. But party on, chandelier dudes!
The Singing Busts. I can carry a tune- oh they just have to let me join in.
Madame Leota presiding over her seance.Lots of musical instruments in that room. Maybe she will let me play one?
The Attic and a portrait of Constance with one of her unlucky husbands, all of whom met with an early demise courtesy of an axe.
Constance! I am sure we would get on fabulously- after all, we could have lots of girl talk and I am not taking anything with sharp edges with me.
Ezra, Gus, and Phineas. Now why are they always trying to hitch a ride away from the mansion? Ah, the grass really is always greener I suppose.
Which is YOUR favorite room in the Haunted Mansion?
Would YOU join the 999 Happy Haunts as I would? (Or is my family right- am I batty?)
Shall we plan a weekend?
