I'm curious to see what they do for rides like the Haunted Mansion and Tower of Terror that have those smaller show rooms before the rides. More so the tower of terror which has that really small pre-show room. Is it possible to just have the lines go straight to the rides? I know it's not ideal for either but I'd rather be able to ride a partial ride than no ride at all.

^I'm sure they'll just have the doors open and you'll walk through the rooms.

Isn’t the stretching room some sort of elevator? I could be wrong but I remember hearing that somewhere.

Well, not quite. In the original Disneyland version, the stretching room is an elevator, due to lack of space within the railroad track boundaries for the show building. By moving guests down and underneath the railroad tracks, this allows the main part of the ride to occur beyond the railroad tracks, free from space constraints. This same system of moving guests outside the railroad tracks for the main attraction was used two years prior at Disneyland for Pirates of the Caribbean (utilizing 2 drops and a lift hill at the end), was used later on for Indiana Jones Adventure (with its lengthy indoor queue), and was even used for WDW's Space Mountain (with its own lengthy indoor queue). However, returning to the Haunted Mansion, as the WDW version was an opening day attraction, space for the show building was not a problem, so instead the stretching room is a normal room, with the effect achieved by lifting the ceiling and the wall paneling upwards, and not moving the floor downwards. The dark room coupled with the visual cues from the lifting ceiling create the effect that you are moving downwards, when in actuality you aren't moving at all. With that in mind, it's entirely feasible for both doors to the stretching rooms to stay open at WDW, though it would completely ruin the effect. With the Disneyland version, this would be impossible.

It isn't a lift in Walt Disney World, but the one in California is as the show building is behind the berm/railroad (ditto Paris)

(Sorry bootymix96, I somehow missed your post where you had already answered. Nice first post!)

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. So it shouldn’t be a problem at Magic Kingdom, but it does make me wonder how they’re going to do it at Disneyland.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

^/^^ As an 'elder DisneyParks geek' of sorts, I remember all of this, and how these attractions came to be.
Learned it through paper magazines, television, and all the "old stuff" that communicated information.

But it's so lovely to see it explained by others, who love it just as much as I do.

And yours bootymix96, was a very nice and thorough one! :mickey:
