The second photo is of the Haunted Mansion prior to it's official opening. The slide is dated 1968 and you can see the famous 999 haunts sign. This sign was reproduced full size after blueprints were found of the design. I enjoy all the incarnations of the Mansion, both the classic and the Nightmare version. However, the bride tableaux leaves me cold and I feel is unimaginative.

Two Of My Favorite Buildings At Disneyland
Today's post showcases two of my favorite buildings at Disneyland. The first shows the Plaza Inn, once known as the Red Wagon Inn. With the changes to the menu, I do not eat here often these days. But I still enjoy thinking of it as the Red Wagon Inn.
