PortraitCorridor

A view down Disneyland's corridor

The Portrait Corridor is an eerie hallway found within the Haunted Mansion and Phantom Manor. Each iteration of this corridor houses a series of changing portraits and, generally, serve as a transition from the Stretching Room to the loading area, where guests board their doom buggies to continue their tour of the house.

Attractions Edit

Disneyland Edit

After exiting the Stretching Room, guests step into a dimly lit corridor occasionally illuminated by flashing lightning. On the left-hand wall are windows looking out onto a storm-tossed night, complete with rolling clouds and rain, while a set of portraits hang on the wall to the right; whenever the lightning flashes, these paintings flicker briefly into grotesque and macabre images. Brass bat stanchions flank to length of the corridor. At the far end, a pair of busts in alcoves seem to turn to follow the guests movements as they make a turn to the right and enter the eerie darkness where their doom buggies await.

Walt Disney World Edit

Guests exit the Stretching Room and board their doom buggies right away in this version of the attraction, where they are then carried pass under a balcony where a floating candelabra hovers and down the Portrait Corridor. Originally this hallway housed the Sinister 11, paintings whose eyes would follow guests as they rode past; today those paintings have been replaced with windows and changing portraits like the Disneyland version, while the original paintings have been relocated to other parts of the mansion. Guests are then taken into the library.

Tokyo Disneyland Edit

The Portrait Corridor remains similar to how Walt Disney World's original corridor was, still haunted by the Sinister 11.

Phantom Manor Edit

Upon leaving the Stretching Room, guests wander down a corridor lined on either side with ornate mirrors and paintings that slowly shift back and forth from mundane to monstrous. At the far end stands a full-length portrait of Melanie Ravenswood in her wedding gown. Interestingly, the Phantom speaks in this version (whereas the Ghost Host doesn't comment on the scene in the other Mansions). He says (in the English version): "As you gaze past these… priceless works of arts… perhaps you notice a disquieting metamorphosis… Don't worry — it's only a trick of the light. The real chills come later."
