Ran across DoomBuggies.com which gives some great insight into Disney's Haunted Mansion. Really cool is the behind-the-scenes look at the development of Disney's dream and how the Imagineers brought the Mansion to life.
Considering the impact the Haunted Mansion has had on Halloween die-hards and haunters, this is a great inspiration. For those that don't know, a "Doom Buggy" is the chariot that patrons ride in when touring the Haunted Mansion. There are even the patent drawings of the buggies on the site which show an incredibly detailed and complex ride that those touring the attraction probably don't realize.
I'm one of those that loves to see the development of an idea. The books showing the creation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy still have a prominent place on my bookshelves. This history site will hold a prominent place in my bookmarks.
