This next secret is one which requires guests to again pause and take notice, as most simply walk past and overlook it. It's a bit of a light-hearted secret, but a key element in telling the story of the Haunted Mansion. Pause for a moment in the queue line and look at the lawn. Notice anything different here? Disney horticulturists are some of the finest in the world, and they go to great lengths to ensure the landscaping all throughout Walt Disney World Resort is impeccable, be it at the Magic Kingdom or your hotel. Topiaries are shaped into whimsical Disney characters, flowers are blooming at every turn and every plant you see is green, lush and well tended. However, here the horticulturists have purposely neglected the lawn of The Haunted Mansion so it remains brown...and dead.
