  • I really hope whatever they’re doing at the Haunted Mansion is subtle. I can’t understand why they keep making changes to what is already their best attraction when there are so many other things in the parks that need attention.

  • What are you alluding to with the “and maybe something more…” concerning HM?

  • 45th anniversary ok magic kingdom. … haunted house is one of the original rides… maybe getting a face lift and upgrade for the celebration?

  • I don’t think the Tomorrowlandterrace looks as dirty as local McD, it looks much more filthy at Disney, gross. Nothing like it was years ago. I’m scared to see what it looks like in 5. Hopefully Bob Iger’s replacement will give 2 cents about the quality of their theme parks. He sure didn’t. Even still, great photos, looks nicer than it does in person!
