If you've ever visited a Disney Theme Park then chances are you've ridden one of the various versions of The Haunted Mansion. It's Disney's classic spin on a haunted-house/ghost train and whilst this attraction was originally designed and built decades ago it's still one of Disney's most-visited and best-loved rides. The reason is simple - it's a clever blend of scares & smiles which makes it appealing to 7 to 70 year olds.
This book is a highly detailed ride through the history of this Disney classic from Walt's first ideas as a spooky house on Main Street USA right upto the movie based around it. Featuring enough text and photographs to keep both die-hard Disney fans & kids happy it's the perfect compliment to a perfect ride. The writing of the book will make any Disney fan want to turn page after page and the rare pictures, drawings & diagrams will not fail to make them smile. This really is a brilliantly put-together product. The ride section is far more entertaining than the movie section but a big part of that is down to the simple fact that the attraction is a classic whereby the movie didn't exactly live upto the standards set by it's predecessor "The Pirates of the Carribean".
If you enjoy "Behind-the-Scenes" books of any nature and especially if you enjoy Theme Parks then this book should appeal to you. If your a fan of the ride or even just Disney in general then you'll LOVE this book. A Must-have for any Disney fan !!!

This is an interesting book, for who loves disney and his movies in live action, even if The Haunted Mansion is really not a masterpiece.
Here you can find so many sketches and drawing very fascinating.

This is wonderful, plenty of photos and narrative about all the different versions of the ride throughout the world, with a nice long section for Phantom Manor in Disneyland resort Paris. Then there's a thorough description and interesting facts, about the film. Worth every penny.

I am a big fan of the legends/mythology and creative decisions behind the constructions of all the Disney parks, and this book is a fantastic combination of visual and written looks into the inside world of the ride and movie!
A must read for all fans of Imagineering and anyone who loves the ride! theres even a lovely section dedicated to Phantom Manor in Paris.
I loved it!
