In addition to many details, there are plenty of hidden secrets throughout the Haunted Mansion which guests love stumbling upon and enjoying on each visit. When guests wind their way through the queue for the attraction, they pass through an interactive graveyard where the tombstone of Master Gracey is permanently displayed.
After entering into the house, guests witness a portrait of the man age from young adult to skeleton. Gracey was influential in creating scenes and effects including the beloved ballroom where the ghosts are out for a swinging wake. As a tribute to his hard work and dedication for the attraction, the master of the Haunted Mansion was named after Gracey. One of the most iconic characters from the Haunted Mansion is Madame Leota.
When constructing the attraction, Imagineer Leota Toombs was asked by Disney to be used as the face of the Madame who was then named after her in turn. Instead voice talent Eleanor Audley was brought in since she already voiced famous Disney villains like Lady Tremaine from Cinderella and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. The Haunted Mansion took many years to progress from concept to actual attraction. Along the way, there were many different ideas about how what effects should be used, what type of experience it should be, and who the narrator should be.
An early concept called for a raven character to be the narrator who followed guests throughout their tour of the mansion. While the raven was eventually replaced by the disembodied Ghost Host, the bird can still be seen throughout the attraction peering at guests with a glowing red eye.
One of the voices might seem particularly familiar to guests as it belongs to veteran voice actor Thurl Ravenscroft. One of the interactive elements is a ghostly organ which guests can play simply by pacing their hands on the keys. Above the keys is the name Ravenscroft, paying homage to a great vocal talent! Known for his comical sketches, Davis could convey plenty of laughs and visual gags in intricately designed scenes, examples of which can be seen on Pirates of the Caribbean.
While coming up with concepts for various scenes in the Haunted Mansion, Davis was inspired by the classic movie The Haunting which features an ominous corridor of doors. Davis used the inspiration from the film to conceptualize the corridor of doors seen today in the Haunted Mansion where ghosts are knocking and attempting to escape from each doorway. The ballroom scene of the Haunted Mansion is full of amazing detail including the waltzing duos, dueling ghosts high above, and a birthday celebration.
Seated at the end of a large dining table is a ghost ready to blow out the candles on their eerie birthday cake. Guests who gaze down at the dining table can spot a trio of plates that have been arranged to form a classic Hidden Mickey.
Many of the tombstones found along the queue and exit ramp of the Haunted Mansion pay tribute to the individuals who worked to make the attraction a reality. Coats designed the eerie feeling found in many scenes during the first half of the attraction and it is fitting that his spirit lives on via his tombstone at the Haunted Mansion today!
