Disney Parks After Dark: Sunset at Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris

This post was originally published on this site

Tonight’s Disney Parks After Dark photo was snapped at Phantom Manor at Disneyland Park in Paris.

Located in Frontierland, Phantom Manor has a thrilling (and somewhat chilling) backstory. According to local legend, Henry Ravenswood was a Western settler who struck gold in nearby Thunder Mesa. He poured his wealth into building a grand mansion where he and his family lived happily for years – until Henry’s beautiful daughter became engaged to a miner who planned to take her away. Disapproving of the engagement, Henry vowed to stop them from marrying. But suddenly a mysterious force struck Thunder Mesa with an earthquake, killing both Henry and his wife.

Shortly after the earthquake, Henry’s daughter was left at the altar by husband-to-be. Time passed, but she never took off her wedding dress – only wandered through the mansion in the hopes that her fiancé would arrive.
