The Ghostly Chambers

Disney aficionados know the lines by heart--that famous spiel from the Ghost Host as they're guided along a supernatural journey through a ghoulish estate.  Here are just a few lines to accompany a couple of photos entering the Haunted Mansion:

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, 
And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls...
Whenever candlelights flicker 
Where the air is deathly still-- 
That is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight!

Guests of the Haunted Mansion are welcomed into this grand and gloomy foyer, prior to the Stretching Gallery.
Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. 
I am your host, your... ghost host. 
Kindly step all the way in please and make room for everyone. There's no turning back now.

Our tour begins here in this gallery where you see paintings of some of our guests as they appeared in their corruptible, mortal state.
 
Is this room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination, hmm?
This, then, of course is when guests drag their bodies away from the walls and lay them to rest in the dead center of the room. And their spectral trip to meet 999 happy haunts begins...
