The bride is basically a white mannequin in a white wedding gown. When the lights go off, a projection illuminates the entire body, showing her as a wispy but realistic spirit. Her face and her entire body are projected, very similar to the Leota effect in the Seance Room and the Little Leota effect at the end of the ride. Constance also floats mysteriously above the floor (made possible by a pole and a fan).As with other Disney Attractions, The Haunted Mansions around the world have differences... ANd with Disneyland being the original, it has many original things. First, at the entrance the major thing is that you enter into the mansion from New Orleans Square. Also, years ago, the cemetery paid tribute to the Imagineers, but was changed when the queue was expanded some time after the mid-80s, to make room for the handicapped entrance. In the Small Foyer, guests enter a small rectangular room containing a dusty chandelier and a wood floor (in the design of a spiders web). Once in the pre show in the Octagonal Room, with a feature only in Disneyland and the Phantom Manor, the room is, in fact, an elevator with no ceiling. The room is being lowered slowly to give the illusion that the room itself is stretching; this brings the guests down to where the ride begins, below ground level. This elevator effect was necessary to lower the guests below the level of the park-circling railroad at Disneyland. The actual ride building of this attraction is located outside of the berm surrounding the park, and the Disney Imagineers developed this mechanism to lower the guests to the gallery leading to the actual ride building.When you leave the "Stretching Room", the wall opens into a portrait corridor. When the walls finally do open, guests are ushered into a portrait corridor with paintings that depict seemingly innocent scenes. Windows on the left give guests a peek at the thunderstorm raging outside. With every flash of lightning, the paintings flicker with ghastly images. The grim busts of a man and woman placed at the end of the hall seem to turn their heads, glaring at the guests as they walk past. After loading your DoomBuggy guests are seated and ascend a pitch-black staircase. A chair whose embroidering resembles as much as a face, accompanies the moving suit of armor in front of the Endless Hall where a candelabrum floats lonesomely down the corridor.In the Cooridor of Doors, guests travel through a dimly-lit corridor. Portraits of family members (much a lot like zombies and skeletons) hang upon these walls while monstrous voices echo through the halls. Many doors, at least seven, are seen here, while their handles are jiggling with no one in sight. Every door has a door-knocker, knocking by them selves.A cross-stitched sign reads "Tomb Sweet Tomb" hangs crookedly on these walls as well. A portrait of a man who's seem to wear a hangman's noose while holding an axe is seen to the left of the corridor. Next to that, a door seems to be breathing as if it where human. Two reliefs resembling a smiling and a snarling demon are found here as well. At the end of the corridor is a door with a pair of skeletal hands trying to open the door with an eerie green glow from inside.
