DDW 107. New Haunted Mansion Queue
New Haunted Mansion Queue
This is the pipe organ in the new interactive queue at the Haunted Mansion. Like most objects found hear, you are encouraged to touch this unique addition. When you place your fingers on the keyboard you actually hear a variation on "Grim Grinning Ghosts." There are other instruments depicted around the structure and touching these also provides guests with an audible treat. If you zoom into this picture, taken in July of this year, you will see the "brand" name over the top keyboard is Ravenscroft. This a tribute to Thurl Ravenscroft who was the lead singer on the recording of "Grim Grinning Ghosts." He is also the tilted singing bust in the graveyard scene of the mansion. In addition to being a Disney Legend, Ravenscroft was also the vocalist for "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" as well as the voice of Tony the Tiger.
