A photo of James Mason as Captain Nemo, playing the organ in Walt Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Due to the success of the film, a 20,000 Leagues walkthrough exhibit was opened at Disneyland. The original movie sets, giant squid and pipe organ were used in the exhibit, which was open from 1955 to 1966.
In the mid 1960's Imagineers moved the historic organ to the new Haunted Mansion. The ornate pipes and adornments were reconfigured to fit the ghostly ballroom's ghastly style.
Although the pipes, mirror and ornate woodwork have been removed from the Captain Nemo version, the organ's original console, keyboard, buttons and knobs remain recognizable.
