ChefMayhem of the brilliant Haunted Mansion fansite writes, "Next month, DoomBuggies is hosting its 10-year anniversary bash at Disneyland Park in the Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square. We rented out the restaurant for the evening, and the custom menu features items such as "Bride's Beating Heart Red Pepper Bisque," Filet Mignon and Shrimp, and "Graveyard Chocolate Coffins." We have WED Imagineer X Atencio and a few other Haunted Mansion legends lined up to speak at the program. We hired the Hitchhiking Ghosts to join us. We tracked down the Randotti heir, who's going to talk about designing and creating early souvenir skulls and tombstones for Disneyland, and we're giving away an authorized Randotti product as a special gift to each attendee. We're hosting a free raffle to registrants that will offer 1 out of every 10 attendees the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of Club 33. And after the park closes, we're taking a private, after-hours ride through the Haunted Mansion to close out the evening."
Come join with like-minded fiends at DoomBuggies' 10th Anniversary
graveyard smash! While our original registration deadline is past, a few
cancellations have left a small number of tickets available - so come
join us! Attendees at our Swinging Wake will have a rare opportunity to
hear stories directly from some of the famed imagineers who originally
worked with Walt Disney and created the Haunted Mansion - in a personal
setting with amazing food and wonderful people. This is truly a rare
opportunity for fans of Disneyland and Disney history.
Holy crap, I wish I could go to this!

Though these have gained in technical sophistication over the years, transitioning from rear-projection slide-fades to crisp electroluminescent effects synched with the lightning in the opposite windows, the core graphic concepts have been largely invariant […]
Above, The Mickey Mouse Club, circa 1930. Below, Mickey’s first appearance, a May 15, 1928, test screening of the cartoon Plane Crazy. The film wasn’t picked up by a distributor and as a result we celebrate Mickey’s birthday on November 18 because that day in 1928 was the first public appearance of the mouse, in […]
