The Floating Candelabra is a haunted object/number of objects in the Haunted Mansion and Phantom Manor.

Description

The Haunted Mansion

In all versions of the attraction the candelabra appears in the Endless Hallway where it is seen in the distance floating on it's own.

Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland

At both Disneyworld's Mansion and Tokyo's Mansion the Candelabra makes an additional appearance right after boarding a Doom Buggy in the Loading Zone and going into the Portrait Corridor.  Here the candelabra floats on a stairway landing overhead the guests.

Phantom Manor

In Phantom Manor, the candelabra appears in the Endless Corridor just like it does in mainstream Haunted Mansions but here there is the added effect of Mélanie Ravenswood appearing from thin-air holding onto the candelabra with the Phantom behind her.

Effect

The Candelabra's floating down an endless hallway is an illusion created through mirrors and forced perspective.  The Hallway uses mirror to make itself appear infinite and the Candelabra isn't actually as far away as it looks to guests, but instead is a tiny candelabra mould connected to the mirror and a motor behind it which makes the candelabra make "floating"-like movements.

Other Appearances

SLG Comics

In the comics, the character of Candelabra is given to Mr. Coats. Coats was one of the two architects who was hired by William Gracey alongside Mr. Davis to construct Gracey Manor. He was murdered by Gracey and became a ghost in the Mansion.

Trivia

  • In the unnoficial cast-member made Ghost Gallery storyline, the Candelabra is said to be the ghost of the mansion's late-housemaid Prudence. Prudence was the personal maid of Little Leota who was constantly bullied and tormented by the young girl. Prudence died one night of a nervous breakdown while walking down one of Gracey Manor's corridors and being scared by Little Leota.
  • During the seasonal Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay, the candelabra is replaced by Zero from the Nightmare Before Christmas.
