994 - Designing The Haunted Mansion - Disneyland For Designers Episode 7
Mark & Jerrod look at the sketches, the stories, the concepts and ideas that all got whittled down to the final wild and unpredictable style guide that crafted the Haunted Mansion. The Haunted Mansion building that sat empty for seven years and created the most significant challenge that Walt Disney Engineering ever faced. The first significant attraction built in the absence of Walt Disney. This is the story of how creativity is a wild beast that needs to be sculpted into a narrative and sometimes works best with compromise. Even if you have never ridden in a doom buggy, this episode speaks to the process of narrowing down your ambitious ideas to find the balance of what works.
