Freaky Fridays @ The Haunted Mansion: The Knight

This Knight is one of the first things you see in your Doom Buggy after you have left the loading area. Once he moved, then he was stationery, and now his arm moves up and down once again. Until I took this photo, I never noticed his parrot-shaped beak.

How many guests have wished that they could have this photo opportunity?

Right near the Suit of Armor is this Haunted Hallway which seems to go on forever and has a candelabra floating eerily mid-air.

See more Disneyland Haunted Mansion (both recent & vintage) photos at my Haunted Mansion web page.

I never noticed the snake corbels either, always too busy looking down the hall.

Great photos... I don't think that the knight always had that beaky helmet, but I could be wrong.

There's a Knight right at the beginning? Sometimes my lack of the basics is amazing... Oh well, something to look for on my next visit!

I've always loved the design of this knight - and I think he was designed like this from the very beginning Major... And the endless hallway is such a classic gag.
