Top Ten Mind-Blowing Facts/Experiences at Haunted Mansion In Magic Kingdom

3. Lotsa Leota Lore

Did you ever wonder who lent her face and voice to the deliciously eerie Madame Leota, featured in the sĂ©ance area of Haunted Mansion?  Wonder no longer!  Leota was played by actual Disney Imagineer Leota Toombs Thomas; she also played the small figure at the end of the ride who invites you to “hurry back” and make your “final arrangements”.   (Fun fact: Thomas’ daughter, Kim Irvine, created the attraction’s pet cemetery.)  However, Leota’s voice is none other than Eleanor Audley, who voiced Lady Tremaine in Cinderella, and Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty.  (Photo Credit http://hauntedmansion.wikia.com/)
