When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake,

Spooks come out for a swinging wake.

Happy haunts materialize and begin to vocalize.

Palace ghosts come out to socialize.


Now, don’t close your eyes and don’t try to hide,

For silly spooks are coming to ride.

Shrouded in a daft disguise, they pretend to terrorize.

Palace ghosts come out to socialize!


Welcome foolish palace peeps to the Palace Daily News. I am your host, you spooky host sofieremix. Our tour begins here in Disney, where one of the biggest names in entertainment history is no more. Disney announced on Monday it would be rebranding one of its TV studios, 20th Century Fox Television, as 20th Television. The new name cuts both the "Century" and the "Fox" from the studio's name. The well known logo and title card, which has the words 20th Television stacked above spotlights, will stay the same minus the excluded words. To those who are familiar with this iconic company, it is sad to see the original name vanish from screens. Now, kindly step all the way in please, and make room for everyone. There’s no turning back now. Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is Sea World actually hosting Halloween events this year? Or is it merely your imagination? SeaWorld Entertainment announced on Monday that it will be offering a tweaked version of Halloween events at most of its parks later this year. You can't fault SeaWorld Entertainment for trying. If it can salvage one thing out of this rough year by introducing its Halloween offering to locals and tourists who make the Disney and Universal events annual traditions (and impressing them in the process), it will pay off in years to come. The battle for guests is always fierce in the competitive Central Florida theme park market, and the players will get even hungrier as the recession gnaws away at both the travel market and what locals can afford to pay for an afternoon of escapism. Halloween is all about being something else for a change, and right now that finds SeaWorld Entertainment with a chance to lead a seasonal event category in which it's always been a distant bronze medalist. And consider this dismaying observation: this chamber has no windows and no doors… which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out! So, for the meantime, I’ll leave you with two things. Firstly, do yourselves a spooky duty and fill out our Halloween Horror Nights survey in #community-announcements so we can make this year truly frightening. 


Now, instead of your daily motivation, I leave you with this chilling tale. And yes, it is a haunted mansion story. I will be back with more of these in October, but here’s a taste for you now. Many years ago, Master Gracey and Emily were engaged, but Madame Leota was also in love with Master Gracey.  Leota believed that if Emily were “gone” Master Gracey would then fall in love with her and they could get married.  On Master Gracey and Emily’s wedding day, Leota killed Emily and put her body in a trunk and put the trunk in the attic of the mansion.  Well, Master Gracey was so distraught over Emily’s death that he died. Madame Leota was left to haunt the mansion after she presumably died of old age. Thus, this is why during the ride you become the 1000th happy haunt within the Mansion. The ride begins with You entering this haunted house many many years after these 3 have died. As you enter, you “think” you see the pictures on the walls following you or changing (in the first room). Then you walk into the stretching room and you’re still not sure if your eyes are playing tricks on you or not.  Suddenly the lights go out, and when you look up, you see the hanging body of Master Gracey. You are now scared so you “run” to find a way out of the house… (this is where you board a doom buggy). You “run” through the hallway, and library, where you see the pictures looking at you. You enter a room where you see Madame Leota calling up the ghosts/spirits to haunt the house and scare you away (this is where you see her face in the glass ball). Now that Madame Leota has “awakened” the ghosts, the ballroom scene is the first room that you actually see “real” ghosts.  You keep running and find yourself in the attic where you see the ghost of Emily in a wedding dress. Emily is angry, restless, and strikes out at the first thing she sees (which is you). Emily pushes you out the window (this is when the doom buggy tips backward and you descend down a hill – if you look to the right you’ll see the broken attic window that you just “fell” out of). This is where you “die” and this is why the care taker and his dog are shaking when they see you… you are now a ghost… and the ghosts in the grave yard are celebrating your death. Since you are a ghost now, the other ghosts appear more “solid” to you. The ride ends with Madame Leota telling you to remember to bring your death certificate if you want to return and “retire” at the mansion.


The happy haunts have received your sympathetic vibrations and are beginning to materialize. They’re assembling for a swinging wake, and they’ll be expecting me… I’ll see you all a little later.


Rest In Peace, sofieremix.
