While deep in the Halloween season, we decided to sit down with Kids Corner engineer, and Disney expert, Eric Schuman - to explore the stories found inside Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion.

aunted Mansion features a ride-through tour in Omnimover vehicles called "Doom Buggies", and a walk-through show is displayed to riders waiting in the line queue. The attraction utilizes a range of technology, from centuries-old theatrical effects to modern special effects featuring spectral Audio-Animatronics.

The first Haunted Mansion was opened in Disney Land in 1969 and has entertained generations of fans for years. Listen as Kathy and Eric talk about both the development and the elements found inside The Haunted Mansion!

Even though Halloween is history, it's always a good time to explore Disney's famous location - The Haunted Mansion - with our own Disney expert, Kids Corner engineer and WXPN host Eric Schuman!
