  7. Stretching room paintings are all new -- one starts out displaying the Haunted Mansion itself. Stretching room painting-- hearth, fireplace, stockings and a sleeping children painting.

  8. There is a new item in the Holiday Haunted Mansion, if you look directly behind Madam Leota there is a new room, with a rotating star made up of all the cards that you see floating around the room. Normally there is just a black wall there. There is also a new room in the Ballroom scene, between the shooting portraits. If you look you now see into a library with a rotating stack of books in the middle.
    REPORTED: Dave Provenza 24 NOV 01

  10. The changing paintings in the corridor are all new. From right to left: Jack as Sandy Claws flying in sky, Jack holding jack-o-lantern in pumpkin patch, snowman made of pumpkins, Haunted Mansion exterior, and Sally with her Christmas tree vision. Then alternate/changed versions of these are, in order: don't remember, Jack dressed as Sandy Claws holding something Christmasy, snowman made of snow, Haunted Mansion decorated for Nightmare Before Xmas, and Sally's Christmas tree vision (in the movie, she sees a pretty Xmas tree, then it erupts into flames.)

  17. You know how the raven recurs in lots of places in the non holiday mansion? He has been replaced by a specific character from the movie-- the little bat-doll-boy-come-to-life that Jack Skellington leaves for the little black children on Christmas Eve. So where the raven once was, this boy is now.
    REPORTED: Meg 08 OCT 01
  18. New decorations in the corridor of doors-- bunches of man-eating Venus fly traps (think Little Shop of Horrors [Order DVD (North America or Europe) or VHS (NTSC or PAL)]) They're singing.

  19. Madame Leota's room has been redone. She has a new head in her ball and new spiel. The new voice doesn't match the old Eleanor Audley very well. Her head looks faker now. Instead of floating instruments, there are giant tarot cards. (These are seen in the movie, when Jack is performing experiments and he builds a house of tarot cards that collapse during his song.) The boy-bat-doll thing replaces the raven on the back of the chair.
    REPORTED: Meg 08 OCT 01

  29. I went to Disneyland for Christmas of 2001, when they had the Haunted Mansion Holiday. At the end of the ride where the hitchhikers are supposed to be, there is a scene with Lock, Shock, and Barrel with some toys. No need to worry, I noticed that the hitchhikers are still in the scene. They are on top of a hill in the background.
    REPORTED: Haunted Mansion Freak 15 MAY 02 pict from hiddenmickeys.org
  30. Instead of the hitchhiking ghosts, there's this new tableau. It's the stuff Jack delivered on Christmas Eve in the movie-- jack-o-lantern headed jack-in-the-box, etc. Instead of hittchiking ghosts in the mirrors, there is a skull and the jack-o-lantern headed jack-in-the-box - also a black cat.
    REPORTED: Meg 08 OCT 01
