Holiday Haunted Mansion Ride-Thru (Part 3)

Today we will look at the Seance Room in the holiday version of Tokyo Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. The only real difference between Anaheim's and Tokyo's version is that the wall behind Madame Leota shows Lock, Shock and Barrel peeking into the room through a window. Madame Leota's spiel is identical in both versions. Part of a floating fortune card can be seen in the photo above. This year, Tokyo DL sold replicas of these in the form of playing cards and also as note cards. Below are scans of all the fortune cards that hang in the Seance Room. Sorry, they were scanned out of order.....reading from right to left instead of left to right. I just didn't want to go back and rescan them all again!

-On the thirteenth day of Christmas, my ghoul love gave to me, thirteen rings of power, embracing strength that never ends.

-Twelve signs of the zodiac that rule the future and transcend.

-Eleven candles floating. Their scent of mystery in the air.

-Ten telling tea leaves that (unintelligible) with secrets yet to share.

-Nine magic crystals that sparkle with a force that is pure.

-Eight Balls of knowledge that answer with a truth that is sure.

-Seven pearls of wisdom to keep my love bewitched to me.

-Six mystic mirrors reflecting futures yet to be.

-Five lucky charms to understand the right from wrong.

-Four wheels of fortune to spin their rich and golden song.

-Three life lines extending help to those in need.

-Two passion potions that love and romance may succeed.

-On the first day of Christmas, my ghoul love gave to me, a star, a brilliant star for my fortune card tree!
Next, the Doombuggies enter the ballroom, which is a very difficult scene to photograph....so I do not have any photos of it. It is virtually identical to Anaheim's version except for the doorway at the top of the stairway on the opposite side of the room (below the dueling paintings). In Tokyo, there is a curtain there and behind that curtain are the silhouettes of Jack and Sally standing under mistletoe and he is handing her a present.
In my next post, we will venture on into the Mansion's Attic!
