The floating ball effect is really cool at DL so I'm glad the east coast version is getting it as well, it's a really baffling effect.

It may be the East Coast version of Disneylands, but I'm all for it. It's about time the ride got renovated, and I'm looking forward to the new attic scene. Open up already!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

Florida's Mansion needed some serious love. These upgrades should put it over DL's again.

In addition, the spider scene is gone and is replaced by some sort of "stair" scene. Oh, and it has new audio now which is wonderful considering half the time the audio didn't work on whichever doom buggy I was riding. Also according to the Mickey Monitor, Passholder access Sep 14 thru 16 from 9 to noon. I've heard the special effects at Disneyland are impressive so I'm glad to be getting them here finally.

I never knew there was a spider scene, if you could explain that, because I must not remember or just didnt notice.

I'm more interested in seeing the new staircase scene as my only problem with the Haunted Mansion was the pointless waste of space that the spiderwebs were. Now, we have something unique (for now) on the way. I plan on going to the previews in September to check it out.

Adrenaline, I THINK it was right before the seance room. It had these large, very fake looking spiders on very fake looking spiderwebs that vibrated slightly. Like jedimaster said, pretty much a waste of space.

I remember there being a spider scene right at the beginning of the ride where the Doom Buggies are travelling uphill, I'm glad they're replacing it, the out of scale spiders don't really do it for me.

I also noticed some of my rides on WDW's HM didn't have audio and I found myself listening to the car next to me's soundtrack. Glad they're giving it an overhaul without changing very much of the ride's core scenes.

I don't' see how thats possible. It sounds like they're turning it into a clone of Disneyland's.
