Walt Disney Imagineering has released this new video which goes behind the scenes at the most recent additions to Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion attraction: the hitchhiking ghosts.
The video goes into quite a bit of detail and goes behind-the-scenes at the changes which include new audio animatronic figures and the attraction finale which now offers digitally projected animations featuring the beloved Gus, Ezra and Phineas which dynamically detects and interacts with the guest.
Stitch Kingdom first identified and reported on the patent behind this technology over a year ago and on March 12 of this year, nearly one month prior to the unveiling of the new additions, correctly identified that the tech was being applied to the Haunted Mansion.
Sometimes it’s just plain spooky how we know these things months in advance, isn’t it?
Other recent changes to the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World include an extended, fully-interactive queue which now prominently features the fabled actual wedding ring which has joined the Magic Kingdom Haunted Mansion lore over the years due to cast members and fans alike.
