“The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees … The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there. He fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there.” - John Hughes

i always wondered what the fuck this scene was about

Disneyland Secret:

Take a look at these two gals…the one who transforms into Medusa in the hallway of the Haunted Mansion, and the one who is in the portrait hanging on the wall in the skeleton tavern scene in the Pirates of the Caribbean.  Do they look similar? That’s because they are drawings of the same girl, both created by legendary animator and Imagineer Marc Davis!

It’s not the same girl. Maybe the same model. The eyes are not even the same color. April looks suspiciously like these gals too. It is just Marc Davis’ artistic style.

At the attraction in Disneyland, the room is, in fact, two elevators with no ceilings that are being lowered slowly to give the illusion that the room itself is stretching; this brings the guests down to loading area, below ground level. The ceiling above is a piece of fabric called a scrim, which conceals the hanging body until it is lit from above. This elevator effect was necessary to lower the guests below the level of the park-circling railroad at Disneyland. The actual ride building of this attraction is located outside of the berm surrounding the park, and the Disney Imagineers developed this mechanism to lower the guests to the gallery leading to the actual ride building.

This stretching room effect is duplicated at the three Mansions at other Disney theme parks, but only one of these requires guests being moved beyond the railroad tracks. The Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland attractions have stretching rooms with ascending ceilings, rather than descending floors. Only Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris uses the same descending floor as Disneyland, to transport guests toward the structure containing the major portion of the ride
