Disneyland's Haunted Mansion took many revisions and more than a decade of work to go from an idea to a reality, and in this episode we pick up after a hiatus that lasted years. The second half of the story, sadly, also includes the death of Walt Disney and how the team kept moving once he was gone.
Our listener mail is from Will following our Nazca Lines episode.
