As much as we all know I want to throw off my shirt and jump into this pool of Haunted Mansion comparisons--
--that's not what this thread is about. Let's stay focused on the updates that Florida's Mansion is getting, please.
I personally look forward to some info/media on the new staircase effects! Either way, I'm REALLY glad to see the Mansion get some love. I know its condition was one of my biggest gripes about my MK visit last year, so I definitely say it deserves it!
How does DL's Mansion being closed for the holiday overlay make it "impossible?"
Impossible for any other version to be better than the original.

I read that's because the average DL guest will visit the park many, many times throughout their lifetime and knows the Haunted Mansion well, so a modification is a bonus for them (us). The average Magic Kingdom guest may only visit the park once during their lifetime so if they ride the HM only once it should be the original version and not have a seasonal overlay.

Your wish is my command Jahan...well this time anyway. These are from Inside the Magic's flickr page. They are photos with a flash, so I assume it looks even more impressive in the dark.
Some new "venting" in Stretch
The Changing Portrait Gallery
The Grand Staircase
Doesn't look too bad. I love the vents in Stretch. A perfect little detail. The portrait gallery is long time coming, but that wallpaper is bright! I wonder how it looks in the dark. The staircase is beautiful. It's wonderful they're putting that huge space to good use. The attic looks very well done, but the bride isn't too lovely. However, it is a flash picture. The spirits generally do not come out well on film.
^ Well, the bride was originally just thrown into there as a result of the success of the bride in the Phantom Manor. But she didn't do anything except for hold a candle, with a beating heart.
Now the bride redefines the entire story of the ride. Essentially--she marries men, chops off their head with an axe, and then takes their fortune, only to repeat multiple times--thus, she's a rich, psycho-bitch who owned all of the wealth in the attic.
