Episode #114 - Haunted Mansion stories

Its Halloween time again and friend-of-the-show Kristi is back to talk about the Haunted Mansion, and beyond.  Come and take a listen to the darker side of the park, and hear some fun ghost-oriented stories. (with apologies, the podcast this week is a little long at 41 minutes, but I think you will find its well worth your time!)

These are the scenes from the Haunted Mansion that we discuss:

Below is "The HatBox Ghost" video. Its the only known video of the element in DisneyLand in 1969:

Kristi references a video of the haunted mansion with some alterations. You can see "The Haunted Mansion: Hatbox Ghost Edition" at
