Disneyland Will Become a Covid-19 Vaccination Site

KLOS-FM legends Mark Thompson and Brian Phelps reveal the key to Hall of Fame partnership

Mark Thompson was a radio guy for life with a popular afternoon show in Birmingham, Alabama. Brian Phelps was an improv comedian in Chicago who’d never set foot inside a radio station. But a partnership that might have seemed unlikely on paper was magic on the airwaves. The Mark & Brian Show ran 27 years, including 25 of those on KLOS-FM/95.5 in Los Angeles, and led to their induction into the Radio Hall of Fame on Oct. 29. “Mark had been in radio for years at this point [when the pair teamed up...

Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits Welcomes Foolish Mortals to a Charming, Simple Game

Disney theme park rides continue to be a source of entertainment—even outside of the parks themselves.

Hidden Details of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World – Up the Waterfall

One of the things that separates amusement parks from theme parks, is just that, the theme. Theming takes you out of the real world and puts you into the environment that the creators want you to experience and be a part of. In the realm of theme parks, Disney has been the leader for quite […] The post Hidden Details of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World – Up the Waterfall appeared first on ZANNALAND!.

Will Disney’s new Haunted Mansion movie be better than ‘dreadful’ Eddie Murphy flop?

A new Disney film will once again try to turn the Haunted Mansion into a major movie franchise after a reboot by director Guillermo del Toro failed to happen and a “dreadful” Eddie Murphy comedy based on the beloved Disneyland ride became a flop with critics and fans. A new ‘Haunted Mansion’ live-action movie by Disney’s film studio based on the 1969 Disneyland ride is in the works with “Ghostbusters” writer Katie Dippold, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A touring Bolivian orchestra is stranded in a German castle surrounded by 23 packs of wolves

Earlier this spring, more than 20 members of Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos pan flute orchestra left their homes in Bolivia and embarked on a European tour. They arrived in Germany on March 10, right as that country's government imposed a ban on large gatherings to fight the spread of coronavirus. Within days, their bus had broken down, and all of their performances had been cancelled, and their own government back home in Bolivia announced that it would close its own borders, lea...

If you ever find yourself time-traveling to 1975 and need to impersonate a Disneyland Haunted Mansion ride-operator, we've got you covered: just remember that in 1975, food and drinks were absolutely not allowed past the main gate, and that E-tickets should be torn in half and placed in the ticket box.

Listen: "Bela Lugosi's Dead" vs Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

In 2004, Howard Hallis celebrated the devilishly wonderful crossover of Disney and Goth culture with the now-classic "Haunted Bela," a mash-up of Bauhaus's "Bela Lugosi's Dead" with the spooky narration heard in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion dark ride. Listen below! Howard also created the delightful artwork above, titled "Goth Princesses."

A shrewd guess about the Haunted Mansion's mysterious Squeaky Door Ghost

One of the most exciting elements of Imagineer Christopher Merritt's astounding, essential Marc Davis in His Own Words -- a two-volume set of one of Disney's most storied Imagineers, whose contributions to the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean and other rides cannot be overstated -- was the revelation that there was a fully prototyped ghost for the Haunted Mansion that appears to have never been put into production. The ghost -- the "squeaky door ghost" -- is a cartoonish maid who ...

Disney made clever Haunted Mansion stretching room merch

Foolish mortals, Disney's latest Haunted Mansion merchandise is to die for. In 1969, the Haunted Mansion opened at Disneyland and now, fifty years later, they've pulled out all the stops to make us pull out our wallet. From special light-up Grim Grinning Ghosts Mouse ears to two insane artist-made guitars (and everything in between), there are plenty of opportunities to drop some cash at the Resort right now. On my recent trip there, I tried to capture every single Haunted Mansion-related produ...

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 9: Bowery at Midnight!

First up, for #TrackoftheDay, we have a mashup by DJ Fnord, who I can’t seem to find out any damn information about. But regardless, you’ll probably recognize the elements here: “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus coupled with sounds from Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Basically, the perfect pairing. Next, we go to…well, I’m not sure when this is, because the website I pulled this from said 1953 and Wikipedia (which is always right) said the 60s. Definitely sounds more like the 50s, methinks. An...

Fan-made "rideable" Haunted Mansion poster

Cartoonist Vince "Untold Tales of Bigfoot" Dorse (previously) continues to make astoundingly cool Haunted Mansion fan media: his latest is a "ride through" illustration of the Mansion and its many set-pieces, which imagines a coherent geometry for the ride. It's an underappreciated fact that the Haunted Mansion is basically a giant black show-building filled with effectively floating rooms that don't join up in any internally consistent fashion (contrast with rides built around the same tim...

People are braving long lines right now at Disneyland — for a popcorn bucket, not a ride

Disneyland’s most avid — some might allege nutty — fans stood in line by the hundreds Friday morning as the park opened, but not to get on a thrill ride. They were there to get their hands on the newest collectible popcorn buckets just released, in the shape of Steamboat Willie, the Mickey Mouse cartoon that started it all 90 years ago. Vincent Dawson drove from Rancho Santa Margarita during rush hour to stand in line and buy a $20 popcorn bucket for his wife, Vanessa. He was there when the park...
