Headless Halloween

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

We always enjoy the Halloween decorations at Big Thunder Ranch. We were thrilled this year to see the new “Headless Horseman” figure.


We aren’t entirely sure why he has two heads, but we suppose that just makes it all the easier to freak out wimpy schoolteachers!


As for the “Headless Ticket Taker” figure…


…we have no idea what his deal is. Maybe Disney was just running short of pumpkins?

Portal to another world

This morning, the Haunted Mansion wasn’t particularly crowded, so we stayed back a bit and let the other guests go by after leaving the stretching room. We were looking at the portrait of the man and discovered that if you stand there long enough for the crowd to have moved on to their Doombuggies, the portrait talks!

Lemon-talking portrait in the Haunted Mansion

Here’s what it said:

When your wife gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade — make her take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t care if she has an axe; what the hell is she going to do with that? Demand to see your wife’s mother! Make your wife rue the day she thought she could give Captain Gracey lemons! Want to cut off my head? Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna haunt your house forever! With the lemons! I’m gonna get Leota to conjure a spectral lemon that pulls a thousand ghosts here! And we’ll leave room for you!

I don’t know if this is new or if it was just there for Father’s Day, but I will say this — it’s probably the weirdest and most obscure reference in the entire mansion!
