    Re: Haunted Mansion Missing Ring??

    I think someone asked what the whole deal with the ring was to begin with. It was just the metal base part of a pole they cut off I believe, and I don't know if they paved over it or not. But correct me if I'm wrong, people used this to play into the "story" of the Haunted Mansion. Master Gracey had an engagement gone bad or something and the "ring" was thrown out the window. I think there are a few versions of the HM story but I don't think this ride ever really had an official version or anything. It was just supposed to be the house of happy haunts with room for one more guest. Just thought I'd throw that out there for anyone confused... and if anyone wants to add anything or more detail, feel free

    We did the Keys to the Kingdom tour last year and our guide told us that the whole ring story was an urban myth (urban legend - call it what you will) and that no such story was ever written officially by any imagineers for the mansion.

    Who knows!

    yep, people just made it up.

    Connie never threw her wedding ring out of the upstairs window when she found out her groom to be was dead.
    it was just a pole base left in the concrete after staff sawed it off.
    ....or did she

    Here is some more info on the ring...

    You can find this easier during the day... In the last large brick you walk on before going through the second to the last gate, on the right side, there is an imprint of a wedding ring. The "body" hanging in the stretch room is supposed to be Master Gracey's wife. She died the night before their wedding. Her death was ruled suicide, but murder was suspected. Master Gracey was enraged and threw her wedding ring somewhere on the property... it lies imprinted in the block described.
    I would just like to confirm the wedding ring at the exit gate of the Haunted Mansion. This was pointed out to me by a friend of mine while we were hanging around the park on one of our days off. She showed it to me and said that it belonged to the woman who committed suicide and was hanging in the "stretch room". She said that she forgot most of the story, but the woman found herself trapped in the room, went insane, and took the host's "way out".
    I have another twist to add to the story about the ring that is implanted in the ground as you leave the Haunted Mansion. My girlfriend, who is a Disney Cast Member, says that the way it was explained to her is that the ring belonged to the last wife of Master Gracey who "did him in." After she killed Master Gracey, she committed suicide by jumping off the top of the mansion. She landed in the same spot where the ring is now implanted. Ooooh...scary!

    The "ring" is long gone.
    That area was redone after the HM refit a few years back.
    I have pictures of it.

    good huh?
    I wish we could attach sound clips to messages,
    I would have attached a clip of the ghost hosts famous laugh. I do have a mp3 of some demo tracks they did once, it took him a while to get what you hear today.

    " Most everyone's mad here... You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself."
    "The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after."
