DDW Pic 427. Pet Cemetery
Haunted Mansion Pet Cemetery
In continuing with my Haunted Mansion theme for Halloween week, I certainly had to post a photo of the pet cemetery that is located at the exit of the attraction. This is a "scene" that many guests walk past without even noticing. My favorite "stone" actually pays homage to a Magic Kingdom attraction that closed back in 1998. It is difficult to see, but you can spot a dark colored toad in the left rear corner next to a brick pillar. This was placed here in 2005 to honor the "death" of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. There was no official announcement by Disney management, and it is rumored that this tribute was placed there by cast members without permission. However, it has survived for seven years, so I'm sure that the people in charge appreciate or at least accept it!
