Yes kiddies, "The Haunted Mansion" is due out relatively soon. Does anyone else see a bit of desperation in Disney creating movies after rides?

Well, in the past, the disney rides were created after the movie.  Rides like Peter Pan and Buzz Lightyear.  They are simply trying  a new business idea and it seems to be working.  The Pirates of the Caribbean was a HUGE success and it did increase the attendance at the parks, not to mention the merchandising.

I think Haunted Mansion looks good and I can't wait to go see it (but then again, I am a huge disney freak and the haunted mansion is my favorite ride).  My hubby just bought me the Playstation game, which is great.  Cool graphics and lots of neat puzzles.

The thing that I hate about Disney is their tendency to STRETCH things.  For example, yesterday was the 75th birthday of Mickey Mouse ( it was 75 years ago that Steamboat Willie made it's debut) and Disney will be celebrating that for the next 18 months!  Just another marketing ploy.

I want to see the movie before I decide whether I like it or not. I do; however, like the ride at Disney World. Well, I did when I was younger that was the last time I went. Good memories though.  ;D

Well, so far Disney's done "Country Bear" and "Pirates" and they seem to be batting 500. "HM" looks like it'll be some fun, but personaly I think Eddie Murphy lost it a loooong time ago.

I've been on the ride and it was fun but the movie looks stupid.  Movies are so expensive these days that I've become very selective.  I liked Pirates of the Carribean and the ride is fun too!

Hubby and I went to see it and we liked it. We didn't LOVE it, but liked it.  I would like to see it again, but that is because I am such a disney nut.

I really didn't care for Eddie Murphy, but he did fit the role of the bumbling idiot rather well.

My mom just told me the other day that there is a children's movie in the works for "It's a Small World". *shoving a s-p-o-o-n down my throat*

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!, is there no god?  [smiley=cwm8.gif]

That would be great torture for my husband.  He was trapped on the ride for about 30 minutes when he was a kid.  If he hears that song, he goes absolutely nuts!  But he is a trooper, he still goes on the ride with me when we are in Disney World.  He grinds his teeth the entire way through, but he makes it!

Okay, there should be a law against making a movie that could potentially use that evil song. It's cute the first time (and should be the only time) you go through It's a Small World.

After that, it gets stuck in your head. They even made fun of it in "The Lion King." Even Disney knows how annoying that song is.

Haven't seen Haunted Mansion yet,but Pirates of the Carribean kicked serious butt.One of the best movies of 2003 IMO.

Spec,  

I totally agree with you.  And that is why I was super excited last night when hubby brought it home!  Early Christmas present!
