vintage disneyland ~ the haunted mansion

Vintage disneyland ephemera 8

again from the 70s, these postcard images are from disneyland's haunted mansion attraction back in the old days, when this classic dark ride still scared toxic ~

Vintage disneyland ephemera 11

& with good reason, back then the sounds were much louder, shriller & more terrifying, like in other disneyland rides, things were toned down alot over the years to keep from terrifying the children too much ~
