Went to the Show last night! 😄
I absolutely love going on rides, although the older I get the worse I am at handling the high ones 🙈

Museum of the Weird was a proposed area for the Haunted Mansion, before being expanded as a New Orleans Square standalone walkthrough. Designed by Imagineer Rolly Crump, the area was sadly discarded after Walt died, although some aspects of it were used in the Haunted Mansion. Unlike the Haunted Mansion, the Museum of the Weird was more occult themed. Eventually the location would be used in various interpretations of The Haunted Mansion.
According to the Disney Wiki:
Elements designed for the Museum of the Weird that found their way into the Mansion include:
The Talking Chair, which became the "Donald Armchair" near the Endless Hallway.
The iconic wallpaper bears a striking resemblance to some of Rolly's creatures.
The arm sconces, which Rolly borrowed from the classic Jean Cocteau adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
The Seance Room, though the final attraction's Seance Room takes on a very different design.
The Haunted Vardo, which became the Madame Leota merch cart that was once located by the Magic Kingdom version.
Man Eating Plants, which would find their way into Mystic Manor.
Honestly, it kind of would have made sense for this to replace Lonesome Manor, or at least have the things from this concept make up most of the stuff in Lonesome Manor.
It also could have been home to the previously posted-about Mistress of Evil.
