Overview


The Haunted Mansion is one of the most popular and beloved attractions in Disney theme park history, and can be found in each Magic Kingdom Park around the globe. This newly updated book-as it is of vital importance to make sure that fans can read about the latest updates-brings the Mansion's inhabitants to an afterlife like never before.


The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies illustrates how the Mansion's 999 "grim grinning ghosts" moved from sketches to reality, evolving from earliest story concepts through adaptations and changes as it moved into each of the parks, to the very latest ideas for show enhancements. This book also confirms and dispels the various myths and rumors that have surrounded the mysterious Mansion since its opening. And now new history has been added as the attraction continues to evolve. This updated edition now includes photos and text of the new "Mysterious Staircases" and "Glowing Eyes in the Wallpaper" effects that have been added, as well as the re-concepted attic scene, which includes the history of Constance the bride and the several husbands who have lost their heads (literally) over her.
