Daily Photo Tour - Lovely Little Leota

Lovely Little Leota bids you farewell as you make your exit from the Haunted Mansion, beckoning you to "Make final arrangements now!" and "Be sure to bring your death certificate". As humorous as these comments may be, the way this glowing little spectre delivers them is enough to send a shiver down your spine and raise a few hairs. That's the truly great thing about the Haunted Mansion; it strikes a balance between fright and fun. What fun the three of us had, the night I took this picture. We enjoyed the gracious hospitality of a few Haunted Mansion cast members who allowed us the additional time needed to capture some of our favorite scenes. It's people like them that make visits to Disneyland truly magical and people like us hurry back!

One of the creepiest things about the Little Leota figure is that she never turns off. Even after the cast members turn off all the effects for the night, Little Leota keeps running 24/7. It is pretty creepy to walk through the park after hours, when all the background music is off and the crowds are gone, and only hear the faint voice of Little Leota echoing around the entrance to Critter Country.
