    Yeah, we learned about it early on doombuggies.com. Hey, if people have money to burn, who are we to say anything?

    I don't think something like this is so much ego as it is that some people just want to be SO immersed in the attraction, that they're willing to pay whatever it takes to become "a part of it." There's not much difference between this and the Walk Around the World, except that we're talking about an attraction that a lot of people hold close to their hearts (and therefore don't want to change) and, of course, that there's significantly more money involved.

    If they just put it in the backround somewhere, it wouldn't be as bad, but they are gonna put it in front of the band? Tacky. Check this out:

    Just because the picture is in front of the band doesn't necessarily mean that's where they're going to put it. They don't say where it's going...it COULD go all the way in the back, where no one else can make out the words.

    No matter what though, honestly, I really doubt they're going to paint the tombstone flourescent orange where it'll be THAT tacky . It's gonna look the same as all the rest of them in there.

    Besides, think about it...how many people even NOTICE that the tombstones in the ceretary even HAVE writing on them? First timers are being innundated with SO MUCH, both visually and auditorally, that the fine details like that really go over their heads. I LOVE the HM and it took me YEARS to realize that more than one are written "Momento MOri." So as much as Mansion fans MIGHT notice it, IF they're specifically looking for it (and they will ), I think the regular, everyday guest won't have a clue...and for them, whatever magic there is, and whatever holding to theming, will not be changed.

    FWIW, I know the person who currently has the high bid .

    The winner ISN'T a Disneyland fanatic. Then I think the price he paid is even more rediculous.

    How do we know he isn't a Disney nut? Who is he?

    Heard through some friends of mine that the winner is from Louisiana. I forget if he's a doctor or a lawyer??? But one of the two. Not much of a HM fan or even a DL fan...apparently he's rarely ever gone to the park(s) at all...he just thought it was a cool idea nad had the money to follow through with it.

    So if he lives in Louisiana, how many times has he been to WDW? They only mention Disneyland.

    I dunno .

    I guess since the auction was to be immortalized in the DL HM and the newspaper article was out of CA, they didn't feel any reason to post (or even ask, maybe?) how many times he had been to WDW.
