Freaky Fridays @ The Haunted Mansion: Little Leota

For a great finish, Little Leota is at the top of the escalator as you exit the ride, billowing in the wind and beckoning you to “Hurrry baaaaack....hurry baaaack...”. This great effect is difficult to capture on film; a flash removes the film effect of her face:

No flash will get the face but not much of the surrounding details:

A vintage view of Little Leota (with a closer resemblance to her Seance Room Counterpart) from October 1969:

I think that, as a kid, I was especially intrigued by this tiny figure... such a fun concept!
