Disney Happy Haunts, Behind the Tombstone

Master Gracey

In this video, shared by Walt Disney Imagineering, we hear how many of these tombstones pay tribute to famous Disney Legends and Imagineers who helped create the attraction to life years ago. For example, one headstone’s reference to “Master Gracey” refers to Imagineer Yale Gracey, a special effects extraordinaire who brought the spirits of the Haunted Mansion to life, as well as “Grandpa Marc,” aka Marc Davis, who was the artist behind the stretching portraits. Other references include “Haunting Harriet” Harriet Burns, WED Enterprises’ first female employee who created models for the attraction, “Brother Claude” or Claude Coats, who developed the mansion’s interior and more.

Watch as Imagineers Daniel Joseph and Stacy Shoff offer up the details in the video above.
