First reports indicated that the only noose remaining in the Haunted Mansion inspired attraction at Disneyland Paris, is the one held by the Phantom in the Stretching Room pre-show. This also pertains to the final scene where there used to be a noose hanging over a coffin beside the Phantom.

What the portrait in the Foyer of Phantom Manor could look like after the removal of the noose.
Please note this is a simulated visual and has not been confirmed by our reporters on location.

The Phantom, who is one of the main antagonists in Phantom Manor, was heavily inspired by the 1910 novel The Phantom of the Opera. In which the phantom (a.k.a. Opera Ghost) murders multiple characters by hanging them with a noose.  

It’s probable that Disney’s reason for removing the nooses in Phantom Manor is the hangman’s knot association to suicide as well as intimidation and hate-based racial politics. In the United States, a noose is sometimes left as a message in order to intimidate people of color, as it was the primary tool utilized in lynchings during the era of segregation.

Other Disney Parks around the world have implemented several sensitivity changes lately, such as slight modifications to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Walt Disney World, the removal of some tribal masks in EPCOT, as well as major re-design’s of the Jungle Cruise attractions at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom. Further modifications have been considered for the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. 

What do you think of the Phantom Manor changes? Let us know in the comments below.
