Phantom Manor is an attraction located in Frontierland at Disneyland Park in Disneyland Paris. Sharing a similar theme with the Haunted Mansion attractions at Disneyland, Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland, it opened with Euro Disneyland on April 12, 1992. The attraction combines a walk-through portion with Omnimover vehicles called Doombuggies, and features special effects and Audio-Animatronics. This version of the popular Haunted Mansion rides has a different plot line which is similar to that of The Phantom of the Opera. It is also designed to be scarier and darker than the other Haunted Mansion rides. The ride also has a unique soundtrack not featured in the American and Japanese versions. Read More || Edit

Some concept art, construction and photos celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Haunted Mansion. The concept art is by Ken Anderson in 1957, the color art by Sam McKim in 1958.  The sign was made during construction of the Mansion based on a comment Walt Disney made upon returning from a London trip that he was seeking out ghosts looking for a new home.

Imagineers Yale Gracey and Bill Justice pose with some of their creations, including a rare shot of Yale Gracey with the Hatbox Ghost.
