A longtime original attraction, The Haunted Mansion underwent a makeover a few years ago.  The newly added interactive queue makes the wait a little more entertaining.  As with most Disney attractions, there is plenty of history in the ride.  Many of the names in the graveyard symbolize people with significance to the development of Disney World and especially The Haunted Mansion.

Why Stay at a Disney World Resort?

If you are looking to visit Walt Disney World and are not considering staying at a Disney Resort, you should take a few moments and watch the video to see what advantages the resorts have to offer.  It may be just the information you need to determine if you still want to stay offsite or a trip to Disney would be better by staying at a Disney Resort.

Throwback Thursday – Monorail Co-Pilot License

Today I want to share something that up until a few years ago was always a special treat for my family.  As kids and again as an adult with my own family it was a special treat to be able to ride in the drivers compartment of the Disney Monorails.  This opportunity was stopped by Disney after a 2012 accident in which 2 monorail trains collided, killing one employee.

Did you ever have the opportunity to ride up front?

Throwback Thursday

It seems a little odd to say let’s go back in time to Tomorrowland, but that is where today’s story begins.  20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a submarine ride based upon Jules Verne’s novel of the same name.  You were able to wait in long lines with your E ticket (yes Disney used to be all ticketed rides with no fastpasses) under canopies until it was your turn to board the Nautilus for your adventure.

ImageOnce you were aboard the Nautilus you circled around a huge lagoon on your adventure.  You saw various sea creatures, ancient ruins and crew members in the sea until you were attacked by a giant squid and luckily escaped each time to return to port for the next crew to embark upon their journey.

The lagoon has since been filled in and has become annexed into Fantasyland for the new expansion.  The ride proved to be too slow for moving guests in and out as it was a single track of submarines being loaded and unloaded one by one up and down multiple steps to the submarine.  Numerous maintenance issues including leaking submarines and keeping plastic fish and plants looking real in water in the hot summer sun also proved to be too much for the attraction to be successful and lead to the closure of the ride.
