The Bride in the Attic - DoomBuggies.com Audio Special
The mythic, haunting history of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion will finally be told by voice talent Kat Cressida, the artist whose performance as the high-tech "Black Widow Bride" was added in early 2006 to the Disneyland version of the Haunted Mansion attraction as part of park-wide enhancements made to the attractions during Disneyland's 50th anniversary festivities.
Disney aficionados will be pleased to hear that this is the first time that a telling of the "backstory" from the Haunted Mansion is presented being based on the story as it was told by the WED Enterprises "Imagineers" themselves back in the earliest days of the attraction's existence. For decades, Haunted Mansion fans have told tales and myths of the Mansion's storied history, with little more than anecdotal evidence to back their claims. Cressida's telling of the story will be pulled directly from her childhood conversations with her father, who worked for Disneyland's PR Department, and also worked directly with the original Imagineers who created this famed attraction.
"Dad was a graphic artist and 'marketing-meister' who worked closely with Disneyland in the early '70s, so he had come in contact with many of the Imagineers who had crafted the attraction," Cressida explains. "[While waiting in line for the ride,] he loved to ask me, 'Why is the Mansion so neat and pretty if it's called the Haunted Mansion?' He'd ask, 'Do you see that? Do you know what this is? Do you know why that's there…?', which led to a grand unfolding of this tale as we inched our way towards the turnstiles."
