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 séance 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/)

About Jason Dick

Jason is a Disney addict. Walt Disney World trips are an annual occurrence that his partner has had to come to terms with. In between Disney trips, he spends his time running the theatre company he started in 2007. As Artistic Director, he picks musicals to bring to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario Canada that have never been produced in the area. Traveling is definitely a passion and in addition to his trips to the happiest place on earth, he and his partner also travel the world, most recently to India and Nepal. A carnivore by nature, Jason loves the incredible amount of steakhouses Walt Disney World has to offer - they are always at the top of his list for each and every visit.
