Starting today, you may notice some new images “haunting” the blog’s banner above.
In the spirit of Halloween, the Walt Disney Imagineering Art Library and the Walt Disney Imagineering Slide Library have shared historic artwork and images of two of the spookiest attractions at Disney Parks – Haunted Mansion and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
Each time you visit a story, a new image will load. Which is your favorite?
So far my favorite has been the hand drawn Cinderella’s Castle. I made it my wallpaper at work!
AWESOME!!! Tower of Terror is my all-time favorite attraction! Always love seeing artwork from the attraction!
Nope I’m changing it! I just saw the footprints to the piano…that is great!
I like that one, too!
I LOVE the changing headers! Just makes me want to refresh the page over and over and over.
Ok not sure what I am missing, LOL but all I see is the HM picture. Where/how do I see the others you are all commenting about? thanks!!
oh wait, I think I figured it out.
Love these, Jenn! Happy to see Phantom Manor along with the Haunted Mansion and Tower of Terror. I haven’t been to Disneyland Paris yet, but love the story behind Phantom Manor, as well as the original opening narration by Vincent Price.
What’s the story behind Phantom Manor?
That’s the “Haunted Mansion” of Disneyland Paris. Each Haunted Mansion attraction around the world features a strikingly different look. Unlike at Walt Disney World, the attraction is located in Frontierland and has a storyline to match. According to the tale, the manor was built by the wealthy Ravenswood family, who struck it rich in the Gold Rush – but their luck eventually ran out. As the tale goes, a few ghosts from this family may still haunt the premises.
Nice!! Love them ALL!!!!
Awesome! I love the Disney Parks Blog!
It would be nice to know and credit which artists/Imagineers created these great works of art. By now, we all know that Walt didn’t create everything himself. Today would have been Mary Blair’s 100th birthday and she is now more frequently credited for her work in Imagineering. It’s a good time to celebrate more of the creative people who helped make Disney so memorable and magical. Why not make “social media” also relevent media by teaching more of the history behind the splashy graphics filling the blog? Thanks.
@Jennifer; If you could find pictures of Yale Gracey, and Leota Toombs working on the Haunted Mansion that would be crazy awesome.
