Here’s the paragraph with the Elfman mention:
Hong Kong Disneyland is expanding and they will be adding a Toy Story Playland, Grizzly Gulch, and Mystic Manor. Speaking of cultural differences, many Chinese believe that ghosts are the spirits of their ancestors and nothing to fear. Therefore, Disney decided to make the mansion all about the supernatural. You are invited to an open house at an eccentric millionaire’s house, a crazy monkey takes over, and everything goes wrong. Danny Elfman is composing the theme music. Both Bruce and Craig felt that Hong Kong might be getting the best Haunted Mansion anywhere.
This kind of music doesn’t usually get released does it?December 19, 2010 at 12:34 am #66587PolindsayParticipant
There are attraction soundtracks, but they can be hard to find. They usually sell them at the park, or you can search through online marketplaces.December 19, 2010 at 1:39 am #66588Weepy DonutsParticipant

Yeah. I bought “Disney’s Haunted Mansion: Walt Disney World Forever” in 2005. As many giftshops as there are in Disney World, I could only find it at a small cart outside of the Haunted Mansion attraction.
They have produced different versions. I believe there is a version with a hidden thirteenth track. There is also a new version which doesn’t include John Debney’s Disneyland Paris – too bad because Debney’s music is a fun listen, and it features Vincent Price’s narration.
I would assume that Danny Elfman’s music will be made available – how limited the release, I don’t know.December 19, 2010 at 11:02 pm #66592moongirl84Participant
Hey I got “Disney’s Haunted Mansion: Walt Disney World Forever” too. I bought mine at a Goodwill store but it was still wrapped and brand new. Best $3 I’ve ever spent.December 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm #66610
Wow, Elfman is really composing music for every conceivable arena!February 24, 2011 at 12:32 am #66711
Interview with Danny on his scoring Mystic Manor:February 24, 2011 at 4:45 am #66713elfboy91Participant
Cool interview. Although Ray Harryhausen isn’t a composer.. haha!
It was cool to learn about his FANTASIA experience. That’s one of my all-time favorite movies and to hear he likes it too is really exciting for some reason.

Here’s a video.March 9, 2011 at 11:47 pm #66748
LOL – love the shots of Danny looking into the model.March 12, 2011 at 2:44 am #66752Descent Into MysteryParticipant
Is that the actual music on the video?March 16, 2011 at 10:22 pm #66763
Doubt that. Sounded too “simple”.July 10, 2016 at 6:52 pm #58333dr.gigglesParticipant
I was searching for The Forbidden Zone 2 news and apparently back in April, Elfman went back to China write more music for the Disneyland ride. Huh? Think we’ll ever get to hear the current soundtrack?July 23, 2016 at 3:51 pm #58349boingomusicParticipant
Well, you can hear it here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUSF5pflF08
And it sounds amazing!!!!! You can hear Danny sing at 2:15July 25, 2016 at 5:30 pm #58351
Thanks, boingomusic! Now to find a version without sound effects…August 14, 2020 at 6:23 pm #99209
Disney has released a new virtual tour video of Mystic Manor with perfect audio quality (with very few sound effects.) So far this is the best way so far to experience the ride — short of attending HK Disneyland.August 18, 2020 at 6:26 am #99210
Thanks, Ryan. Better sound than the previous video, but still with those annoying sound effects. But it’s the best we got at the moment.
