Apologies in advance if you all know this already, but I was so interested...

In DLP, Phantom Manor is in Frontierland which is a wild west town called Thunder Mesa. The theming is *very* convincing throughout the whole land.

The ride itself is very cool. There's no ride narration now (there was when it first opened) but it really isn't necessary.  This is the actual story Disney released for the ride:

Legend has it that decrepit and dilapidated Phantom Manor, tucked away in a lonesome corner of Frontierland, was once home to one of Thunder Mesa's
founding families. Among the first settlers to strike it rich during the town's Gold Rush heyday, the family built the best house in town, high up on a hill overlooking the river below and out to a private cemetery on the grounds. On the day of her wedding, the daughter of the Manor was jilted, never to be seen again!

The house, once the showplace of Thunder Mesa, fell into decay and ruin, becoming the sinister-looking residence that we know today as Phantom Manor. Haunted by a host of ghosts--predominantly by the evil "Phantom" and the benevolent "Bride," these restless spirits are constantly at odds within the confines of the house. Daringly curious Disneyland Paris Guests are invited inside to experience frightful encounters with various ghouls, banshees and the resident "Phantom" himself.

The above came from http://home.t-online.de/home/ravenswood/main.htm which is an excellent site I came across about Phantom Manor!

Anyway, just wanted to share that bit of info with you.

Toodles!
