In a special presentation at Disney FanDaze tonight, Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald announced that Phantom Manor will once again feature the voice of Vincent Price when it returns this Fall at Disneyland Paris.

An opening narration by Vincent Price was recorded and initially used Phantom Manor in 1992. However, it was removed and rerecorded by Gérard Chevalier, who had provided a dubbed French voice for Price in some of his movies.

Fitzgerald also announced that changes to the attraction storyline will reveal who is the Phantom of the manor, a great mystery throughout the 25 years of the ride’s history.
