    Description

    Walt Disney World - Haunted Mansion Plaque Concept Mold (Walt Disney, 1969). "When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls. Whenever candlelight's flicker where the air is deathly still -- that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight! Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion!" Guests at Disneyland's Haunted Mansion have been enjoying this devilish delight for 50 years! Marc Davis and Claude Coats, two of the Haunted Mansion's main designers, disagreed on whether the ride should be frightening or enjoyable. Claude, originally a background artist, wanted a scary adventure, and produced renditions of moody surroundings like endless hallways, corridors of doors and numerous characterless environments. Marc, an animator and character designer, proposed variegated characters and thought the ride should be silly and full of gags. In the end, both artists got their way. In this lot we have an amazing item! This is the concept mold for the Haunted Mansion plaque at Walt Disney World, created by Walt Disney Imagineering (WED). The mold measures 26" x 17" from edge to edge with the image area measuring 14" x 24". This mold is extremely rare, and will be a great acquisition for any Disney aficionado or collector. Handling and edge wear. Very Good condition. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
