's 10th anniversary Haunted Mansion bash: a swinging wake for Mansion trufans

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! Link

  2. #1 — Well, I could get all pedantic and state my case as to why Disney World and Disneyland are both showcases of groundbreakingly creative rides using storytelling and sophisticated design and art in ways that amusement parks had never done before…

    …but anyone who uses the term “Fag Day” isn’t smart enough to understand half the multi-syllable words I used in the last paragraph, so I probably shouldn’t waste my time.

  3. Whether Disney himself was or was not any of the laundry list of charges levelled against him is a secondary consideration now 40+ years after his death. What individuals now do with his legacy is exponentially more important. That an independent organization has the sort of clout to celebrate people and their contributions that in a lesser system would be footnotes at best deserves nothing but respect. Shame on you, Deepy, for attempting to piss on that. What have you done that people you’ve never met, who perhaps have yet to be born, will still be speaking of in glowing terms when you reach your dotage?

  4. Love the logo. Much can and has been said about Disney’s animation but their design is equally top notch.

  5. Miles: Aside from Cory being a hardcore Disney park fan, one of his novels, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom was based mostly around the Haunted Mansion.

    And Disneyland rocks :)
