    Still More Secrets of the Haunted Mansion

    Thanks for the kind words! I had come across this website in my research, but couldn't really include it as it went beyond the boundaries of my thesis. Good stuff, though!

    Still More Secrets of the Haunted Mansion

    Hey, I've been writing about the Haunted Mansion since 1989 (in the late StoryboarD Magazine), and a Facebook post in one of the Haunted Mansion fan groups got me thinking about the exterior of the Florida Mansion. Here's what my research turned up. Please let me know if I'm on the right...

    Bass Ale still at Rose & Crown?

    From information I've found online, it appears Anheuser Busch bought Bass Ale, at least here in the US, but has now discontinued it. Can't find it in stores or restaurants any longer. This may have happened a year ago or more. Is the Rose and Crown still serving Bass? If so, are they actually...

    Resort Phone Numbers need updating?

    On returning today from a stay at the Beach Club, we discovered that we had left a phone charger behind in the room. Online searches currently provide identical lists of direct phone numbers to the WDW hotels (such as https://www.wdwmagic.com/walt-disney-world-phone-numbers.htm) but I discovered...

    Are these Disneyland matchbooks circa 1980-82?

    Hey, please take a look at these. Yeah, that's our last name. My wife just found them in a box of matchbooks she's been saving since we first went together to WDW in 1978 and DL in 1980. Whatever place or restaurant we made these reservations at also made us personalized matchbooks. Any idea...

    Matchbooks...from where???

    Hey, please take a look at these. Yeah, that's our last name. My wife just found them in a box of matchbooks she's been saving since we first went together to WDW in 1978 and DL in 1980. Any idea where they're from? Pretty sure they're from a Disney restaurant where they took our...

    Politics RUMOR: Lin Manuel Miranda and Weird Al to Redo Hall of Presidents

    I love this. Not as much as I love the idea of the Muppets holding a pageant to tell their version of American history, but it could work.

    Mandatory “Room Check” - Take the poll...

    I love Disney resorts, like a lot of people do here on this forum. But a daily room check is an invasion of privacy--and privacy is essential in a hotel room that the guest is paying for. I don't understand a lot of the fans here who are defending Disney simply because it's Disney. The...

    how will IP attractions hold up

    The attractions that people truly love are the ones that are 100% original and not based on movies or IP, but instead came directly from the hearts of Imagineers. The Haunted Mansion, Pirates, Small World, Tiki Birds, Jungle Cruise, the Adventurers Club, Trader Sam's, the Matterhorn, Space...

    Famous people encounters at WDW

    Saw Bob Hope being escorted around the Adventurers Club; same thing with Roseanne Arquette and Peter Gabriel. Calvert DeForest also made a brief appearance at the Adventurers Club one New Year's Eve.

    Adventurers Club Flashback

    Phil Card was at the Club in the early days, and then went on to Capone's. He was always the feistiest Hathaway, and the funniest. No idea if he's still at Capone's or not.

    Adventurers Club Actors/Actresses

    I know about some of the old-timers from the '90s. Sheila Ward (far left) is still doing a LOT at WDW, mostly acting at corporate functions. Tim (sitting, far right) is also still at WDW. Kris Truelsen (sitting with Tim) is in Canada acting on stage, mostly. Leslie Carrara is an immensely...

    What little things that WDW used to do/have do you miss?

    It's a big thing I miss. I miss the idea that WDW once had that adults could have fun at Disney World--not just children and families. Disney needs Pleasure Island again in the same way that Universal needs Citywalk. Disney needs the Adventurers Club to return. And a comedy club. And...
