Yes, we are getting the story upgrades that Disneyland recieved during their refurbishment, but we are also getting a unique scene made specifically for the Florida version. It won't be any more of a clone than it was before both versions had their refurbs- mind you, they are based off of the same ride concept, so you could always argue that they are clones.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
So from what I've read it officially reopens today and I plan on running over there tonight to ride it. If anyone beats me to it, post your thoughts here...or even if you don't still post your thoughts here. I hear there are new effects even beyond what we already know about.
I can't wait to hear about these new renovations, I havent been to disneyworld in a very long time unfortunately so i don't remember the spider scene, but from the sounds of it, it sounds like the spider scene was kinda pointless and boring. Its nice to know that they are giving the Haunted mansion some tender love and care.

I'm curious to see how everything turned out. From the models shown, the staircase looks very stunning, but that to me seems to be the biggest improvement in terms of set pieces. Everything else, set wise, comes directly from Disneyland. Constance, Floating Leota and the changing portrait gallery are all just Disneyland clones. The other improvements will be things that the normal guest won't really recognize, like lighting improvements and stuff. As for other fancy things, it's possible. There were wishful thinking ideas flying from the Imagineers before it went down, but it really seems like none of those ideas came into fruition. Oh well, maybe in another 36 years it'll get another refurbishment to do those ideas.
