Book Review - The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic

The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic

About the Book
WELCOME, FOOLISH MORTALS, to the Haunted Mansion, one of the most popular attractions in the history of Disney theme parks.

The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic explores how the attraction's "999 happy haunts" were brought to life. Rare early concept sketches, detailed architectural drawings, and stunning still photography illustrate the Mansion's evolution as it was designed and built at each Magic Kingdom park around the world-including Mystic Manor at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Our tour begins here with a twistedly thorough third edition. Based on the retired title The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies, this newly updated volume confirms or debunks longstanding urban legends, shares fascinating behind-the-screams stories, and reveals how concepts move from inspiration to reality. Readers will discover the latest show enhancements to this classic attraction and find even more artwork depicting the happy haunting grounds in California and Florida as well as Tokyo, Paris, and now Hong Kong.

This is one book you'll be dying to have on your shelf!

My Take on the Book
My family are huge fans of the Haunted Mansion. We love everything about it and make a point to do what we can to visit the ride, usually multiple times, when we visit the park. That being said we did not know a lot about the development and creation of the ride itself. This book does a great job at providing you the history of The Haunted Mansion as well as information around the storyline, design and more. The book gives you a complete view of the mansion and you will learn so much! The cover of the book even glows in the dark! If you love The Haunted Mansion, you will truly love this book!
