  • The blog did an entry about all of the magic shots last week. But the hatbox ghost is by the Haunted Mansion on the riverboat landing right before the start of the line.

  • I haven’t been to MNSSHP in quite awhile but we are going this year. We always get the memory maker so we don’t have to worry too much about taking photos and the photopass folks are great. Love to see so many characters that we normally do not see in the parks and the “magic” shots are so much fun. Maybe you can refresh my memory. Is there a list of characters and their locations during the party that is published somewhere? I think I know where all the magic shots are, except for the Hatbox Ghost which I think is new.
