During the refurbishment, many changes were made to this popular attraction. Guests can look forward to seeing new portraits in the stretch room along with the return narration from Vincent Price. There will also be new details added to the original storyline to enjoy (make sure to read to the end for a sneak peek).

Also, a special event is planned on April 30 from 10:45 PM to 2 AM for Infinity Annual Passholders and Disney Influencers. Disneyland Paris is excited about the reopening of this iconic attraction. The updates and added details are sure to draw guests further into the storyline behind Phantom Manor.
It was revealed that the Phantom is indeed Henry Ravenswood, the original owner of Ravenswood Manor aka Phantom Manor. Henry is the father of Melanie Ravenswood, the bride, of Phantom Manor. At least 4 men tried to marry Melanie but Henry didn’t think any of them were good enough for his daughter so he made them disappear in the Manor.
