The Haunted Mansion opens it’s doors for the first time on August 9th, six years after construction of the facade had been completed in 1963. The Haunted Mansions boasts 999 happy haunts, but were there 1,000 haunts when it first opened? If you were lucky enough to ride the Haunted Mansion in 1969, you may have seen a ghost whose stay in the mansion was brief: the infamous Hatbox Ghost. Ol’ Hatty would have lived in the attic, and was positioned just right of the exit of the attic (the Bride was originally where the phantom piano player is located today). The effect was that his head would disappear and then re-appear inside of the hatbox he was holding, while his cane holding hand trembled.
From 1959 comes “Mickey Mouse on Tom Sawyer’s Island”, a little mystery with a pretty awesome map. Via Vintage Disneyland Tickets.
Hello from Malaysia :) Great blog you have there. Thanks to this blog, I learned a lot about Finland and Finns in general from here. Just curious though, how true is this poster that I found?
Note: Credits to 9gag, where I found this poster.
—- Fan submission, thanks Lucas T!
DF answers: Sorry Lucas but unfortunately this is not true. Mulkvisti can be translated as a bastard or basicly man-sized penis as the word is originated from the word “mulkku” that is one of the many words for manly equipment.
If you like to learn some Finnish fondling names for your special someone you can try these:
- Kulta (Literally “gold”, used very often)
- Rakas (Loved one)
- Mussukka (Sweetheart, no literal translation)
There are also not-so common ones, such as:
- Sydänkäpynen (Literally a lttle pine cone made of heart)
- Kullannuppu (Bud of gold)
Welcome, foolish mortals
