The Original Pet Cemetery at the Haunted Mansion - In the 1980s Imagineer, Kim Irvine, went to local nurseries and bought animal statues that were added to a side path next to the Haunted Mansion. They are actually located right between the mansion and Splash Mountain. She asked fellow Imagineer, Chris Goosman, to write the campy epitaphs that are featured on each headstone. This was an area that was only visible to cast members and guests who were using a wheelchair. However, it proved to be so popular that the Imagineer team decided to add a pet cemetery to the front of the queue as well! The original cemetery can still be seen along side of the mansion. If you ask a cast member, (nicely), they might even take you back there to visit Miss Kitty, Bully, Stripey and Big Jake!
