Fun Find Friday

July 18, 2014

Location: Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom

While walking through the queue for The Haunted Mansion, guests can find several different tombstones scattered throughout the area. While each of these has a story behind it, today we will be taking a look at the first tombstone guests pass. On the right hand side you will find the following tombstone:

Grandpa Marc tombstone

The tombstones found throughout the graveyard are actually nods to various Imagineers that worked on the attraction. In this case, Grandpa Marc is a nod to Marc Davis, who has been described as the grandfather of theme park designers. Beginning as an animator for characters like Tinker Bell and Cruella DeVil, Marc went on to help give the look and feel of many attractions including The Country Bear Jamboree, Pirates of the Caribbean, and of course, The Haunted Mansion!
