Disneyland Secrets: The HIDDEN Haunted Mansion SECRET Pet Cemetery-the haunted mansion has a secret pet cemetery that is not visible to the public. In 1961, handbills announcing a 1963 opening of the Haunted Mansion were given out at Disneyland's main entrance.[1] Construction began a year later, and the exterior was completed in 1963. The attraction was previewed in a 1965 episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color[1], but the attraction itself would not open until 1969. The six year delay owed heavily to Disney's involvement in the New York World's Fair in 1964--1965 and to an attraction redesign after Walt's death in 1966.
Many Imagineers such as Marc Davis, X Atencio, and Claude Coats contributed ideas after the fair and after Ken left the project. Rolly Crump showed Walt some designs for his version showing bizarre things like coffin clocks, candle men, talking chairs, man eating plants, tiki like busts, living gypsy wagons, and a faced mirror. Walt liked this and wanted to make the proclaimed "Museum of the Weird" a restaurant side to the now named Haunted Mansion, similar to the Blue Bayou at Pirates of the Caribbean. Although the idea died off, most of it lived on in the final attraction.
Marc Davis and Claude Coats were two of the mansion's main designers were in a constant argument over whether the ride should be scary or funny. Claude who had a life of a background artist made moody surroundings like endless hallways, corridor of doors, and characterless environments made a scary adventure. Marc who designed most of the characters and zany spooks, thought that the ride should be classic Disney silly and be full of gags. In the end both got their way when X. put all the scenes together in a world known script.
After Walt's death in December of 1966, the project evolved significantly. The Museum of the Weird restaurant idea was abandoned, and the walkthrough idea was replaced by the Omnimover system used in Adventure Thru Inner Space, renamed the Doom Buggy, a promising solution to the problem of capacity. Imagineers had been fighting the low-capacity nature of a walkthrough attraction for years, even going as far as suggesting building two identical attractions to get double the number of guests through.
One rumor for the change was that the original attraction had frightened a guest so badly that he died of a heart attack. Since the attraction was never implemented as a walkthrough experience, this rumor is clearly false. No guests have ever died of fright riding the Haunted Mansion.[1] Other rumors included a guest falling into a snake pit and Walt's family lived there and they just said it was haunted to keep people away and out.
On August 9, 1969, the Disneyland version of the attraction was completed, and remained essentially unchanged for years. The opening brought in record crowds and helped Disney recover from Walt's untimely death.Two similar overlays - Country Bear Christmas Special and It's a Small World Holiday - had already been successful for some time when Haunted Mansion Holiday was developed. Initially, Disney considered doing a retelling of A Christmas Carol, but decided against it due to the attraction's setting in New Orleans Square and the incongruity of bringing Santa Claus into the eerie environment of the Haunted Mansion.
