The earliest known concept for the story of Haunted Mansion revolved around Gideon Gorelieu, also known as Bartholomew Gore or Captain Gore. Captain Gore married a woman named Priscilla. One day Captain Gore had to go off to sea on some b  More...

Forgot to mention the concept story that would have linked together Pirates, Mansion and Tom Sawyer's Island into a single fluid storyline. An Imagineer namedΒ Eddie Sotto came up with a story concept that had Jean Lafitte Β as the one time owner of the Mansion who used it as a safe house for hiding his treasure and smuggling items to and from his base on Tom Sawyer Island. Now, as you may know, the dock at Pirate's of the Caribbean is named Lafitte's Landing and Jean Lafitte's anchor is on display along the Rivers of America. Jean Lafitte was a pirate who made his way around the Caribbean and had a base in New Orleans, he also aided the US Navy with the defense of the city during The War of 1812. Anyway, the concept was that Jean Lafitte's life was shown in Pirates of the Caribbean and there was going to be a hidden crypt full of loot underneath New Orleans Square that would lead from Pirates over to Mansion. Tom Sawyer's Island would have shipwrecks, pirate lairs and hidden forts with gold and the like on it, sound familiar?. Β Hints to this proposed plan still exist and much more was used throughout the land's life. For instance, there is a small bricked up sunken archway along the Rivers of America by the Mansion that is said to have been where the crypt would have exited. When Pirates the movie came out, there was a show in NOS that had a small stage where the pirates would perform from, along the stage were props to do with smuggling and also a portrait of Miss April-December that was used in the Mansion's changing portrait hallway. Finally, if you go look at the River Notices board by the raft dock, there is an article about Tom and Huck being found being pirates on the island. If you read the entire thing, it states that rumors say the island was used as a base by Jean Lafitte.Β  - CM_Shadowgamer  2256.2 #43 2-7-14 4:28PM Like(4)  Reply

I forgot to mention that with the addition of Constance and her husbands, the Haunted Mansion is now linked story wise to Disney Sea's Tower of Terror and Hong Kong's Mystic Manor. George Hightower is a relative of Harrison Hightower, the owner of the Hightower Hotel (aka Tower of Terror). Harrison was also a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers that Henry Mystic, owner of Mystic Manor belongs to and was an associate of his. In fact, Harrison makes a cameo in the queue area of Mystic Manor in a group photo of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. - CM_Shadowgamer  2256.2 #43 2-8-14 1:07PM Like  Reply
