For those wondering what the Paint the Night Mickey float is meant to be, here's my take. The "neck and head part" are homages to the Elliott float,it even has the beard, while the whole float is an homage to one of the snails from MSEP.
Nah, it's just a cool float with the BEST character at the top.  - Quiweez   672.4 #308 3-4-16 5:36PM Like(1)  Reply

Yeah, from what I heard, Tuesday was a rough day. My friend and her family were there for the first time and the kids were quite disappointed everything kept breaking down. One of them got to be the Rebel Spy on Star Tours and they got front row seats for Paint the Night, so all the problems were distant memories after that. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper   690.8 #291 6-5-15 9:54PM Like  Reply

Now that its been streamed, I feel comfortable sharing my opinion and experience of Paint the Night with you. The energy and buzz of everyone on Main Street for our Cast Previews was phenomenal and you could just feel it in the air. I had  More...
I can definitely appreciate the sentimental factor that the MSEP holds for many people. Although I'm an adult, this Paint the Night parade is my "generation" (so to speak) as well because I didn't experience Disney parks as a child. The newer Disneyland fans will definitely attach their emotions and memories to this parade! I envy those who have such sentimental attachments to certain things that Disneyland used to have but I'm slowly creating my own sentimental attachments. And that's the absolute BEAUTY of Disneyland. It means so much and so many different things to different people. Ultimately, Disneyland is family. - missmimi90   2033.3 #83 5-21-15 11:34PM Like(8)  Reply
I can't wait to see this new parade but I couldn't agree with you more. My generation grew up with the Main Street Electrical Parade and some of most treasured keepsakes from Disneyland from my youth is two small plastic lights that came off of Pete and one of the fireflys which I grabbed and kept for the last 35 years. This new parade will be awesome and I'm sure my two girls will love it and remember it just as I still love the Electrical Parade.  - K2Dave   95.4 #3716 5-21-15 11:22PM Like(1)  Reply

Too cool!! I think my favorite "used-to-be" effect was the knight in shining armor.  Back in the day, so the story goes, a live person would ware the armor and move at random times.  Apparently he was really good at his job.  I heard a version of the story that guests reacted violently toward the knight and another version that he cause heart attacks. - GoofyMom77   967.9 #197 9-22-14 9:29AM Like  Reply
The story of the guests attacking the knight out of shock is true, can't confirm the heart attack one. The reason I've been told for the removal was that the CM who was the knight was entertainment and not attractions (nor trained on Mansion) but was given the ability to stop the attraction whenever they wanted. Due to this combination, they would stop the attraction way to often and impede on the operation of the attraction. - CM_Shadowgamer  2563.2 #57 9-23-14 3:19AM

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 namedย Eddie Sotto came up with a story concept that had Jean Lafitte ย 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?. ย 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.ย  - CM_Shadowgamer   2563.2 #57 2-7-14 4:28PM Like(7)  Reply

I'll probably post up the Haunted Mansion one later in the week. Probably have to do it as a 2 parter since there was a change in the storyline sort of with Constance's taking over.

Just remembered I didn't put some fun facts in to this post and decided to make it a reply instead of a new post. Anyway, there are several actual movie props inside of the attraction. The chair Jack Sparrow sits on in the treasure store at the end of the attraction was used in the dining room scenes of the Haunted Mansion movie (they also have one in Florida and one appears in one of Constance's wedding photos in Haunted Mansion). The chest that held the cursed gold can be seen in the treasure scene with the skeletal pirate sitting on top of the gold pile. It is against the wall on the far side as you enter, closest to where the Davy Jones projection is. The final prop from the movie that I'm aware of is the boat that Pintel and Ragetti use when dressed as women. It will be tied up next to the fortress wall on your right hand side as you turn into the city after the battle scene. Speaking of Pintel and Ragetti, the two laughing pirates closest to where Jack is hiding near the well are who they are modeled after. One has a glass eye, and one has a peg leg (which I guess they didn't go with in the movie). Finally, the captain at the auction was originally the first Mr. Lincoln animatronic. - CM_Shadowgamer   2563.2 #57 2-26-14 2:26PM Like(3)  Reply

I still can't believe this is happening! Today, Friday and Saturday I train on Mansion. Come say hi!
Thank you all for your kind words. In case I haven't said it enough, Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction in the park, I have to ride it every time I go into the park as a guest as long as it's up and running. It has been my dream to wear that costume and work the attraction since I was *puts hand palm side down around waist* this tall, and it finally came true. I never imagined I'd get to do this, but once I saw New Orleans Square on my placement sheet, I knew I was a step closer to achieving it. I never imagined it would be so soon after hiring on. When I saw it pop up on my schedule, I nearly broke down in tears and I just stared at it dumbfounded in shock and disbelief. You honestly have no idea how much it means to me to get to work this attraction. The only thing I can think of that would be a bigger desire position and dream wise since childhood would be to be able to work a parade shift if and when Electrical Parade finally returns home to it's rightful place. There will definitely be tears on that one based on all the childhood memories I have of it. - CM_Shadowgamer   2563.2 #57 1-28-14 9:37PM Like(13)  Reply

One of the original multiplane cameras used to create many classic Disney animated features at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. They have a scene from Pinocchio set up for display currently.
I'm gonna see that because I like Pinocchio  - phillip...   1357.8 #132 10-24-13 7:32PM Like  Reply
I have a shot of the scene actually. - CM_Shadowgamer  2563.2 #57 10-24-13 7:42PM
Can I see it? - phillip...  1357.8 #132 10-24-13 8:22PM
That'd be neat to see. I have only seen the one in SF of Sleeping Beauty which is so tall, like this, they have the next level/ story build around it so you can really view the spectacular beauty of how it worksย and what the artists and camera people see - misschurro...   7130.1 #14 10-24-13 7:46PM Like  Reply
Does that make sense? You can look down and see depth - misschurro...  7130.1 #14 10-24-13 7:48PM
I feel like there are hand gestures missing that would help explain it better ๐Ÿ˜‚ - Geekery  409.4 #557 10-24-13 7:57PM

You know about the ballroom monkeys, right? :7) - HappyHaunt1000th   33.5 #5803 10-22-13 7:10AM Like(1)  Reply
Details please? - Cinderella_Schnooks  3382.5 #43 10-22-13 8:14AM
MrsSchnooks, there is a monkey couple dancing in the ballroom. I don't know if I'm allowed to say exactly where they are, but they're closest to the organ player. They're really small and look like dolls at first glance, so keep an eye out next time. :7) - HappyHaunt1000th  33.5 #5803 10-23-13 8:52PM
Which room is the Monkey Bride in? - nicealex77   727.6 #271 10-21-13 3:13PM Like  Reply
The attic, look to your left behind some presents. She's pretty much exactly opposite of the mini Oogie Boogie. - CM_Shadowgamer  2563.2 #57 10-21-13 3:16PM
Thanks, I'll keep an eye the next time i'm there. - nicealex77  727.6 #271 10-21-13 4:01PM
As a monkey fanatic (can you tell by my username ) I am so elated to hear all about this. Tee hee =) - apesandmonkeys   6523.5 #18 1-12-14 4:57AM Like  Reply
