We have two more Walt Disney World fonts for you today. They’re based on Stitch’s Great Escape and the Jungle Cruise. Don’t break your keyboard from using them too much.

. . . that’s the sound of keyboard keys being quickly depressed in succession. Enjoy these two fonts, based on Walt Disney World attractions.
This is one elusive font! Ever since the movie came out, I have received queries about the existence of a Lilo & Stitch font. Luckily, Steve created Buka Bird back in 2009, and has shared a link to all of his font creations. If you follow the link, you will also discover Market Deco, the typeface used in the Disney Experience logo.
I just recieved an interesting email from David Occhino, designer of the Mansion 3.0 & Mansion Cryptbats fonts. He noticed that my death certificate is #1001. If you look in the lower-right corner of the certificate, you’ll see that it is numbered ’0-001-001′. It turns out that each certificate has its own unique number.
For the two folks who have lucky numbers 999 (0-000-999) and 1000 (0-001-000), David is offering a FREE copy of his Mansion 3.0 font! To get the free font set (I just bought mine last night), email David a copy of the PDF certificate. You can contact him through his website, David Occhino Design, and the file must be unaltered. No fakes!
Okay, if you’re not a Disney theme park fan, you probably don’t get the title of this post. It’s a joke about the attractions’ Spanish safety spiel telling guests to “remain seated please.” I’m listening to Windows to Sky’s rendition of the Haunted Mansion/Grim Grinning Ghosts as I write this, and that line is in the audio track. It’s funny because it starts off reciting the mansion’s Spanish spiel, jumps to “cinnamon toast and tacos are on the floor,” and finishes in Spanish again. Great stuff!
That brings me to some late great Haunted Mansion finds. During the Halloween week, I am typically focused on nothing other than Doorless Chambers and decorating the front porch. It’s not until later that I find (or re-discover) Internet goodies. This year, I found all-mansion items.
Ray Keim, over at Haunted Dimensions, has a last-minute mini New Orleans Haunted Mansion paper model. Mini versions of his other models are coming within the next year.
Keith LuBrant has a jazzed-up guitar version of Grim Grinning Ghosts. It’s a must-have mp3.
The Mousetalgia team discusses Hallowen Time at the Disneyland Resort and has an exclusive interview with Kat Cressida, the voice of the black widow bride. Listen to episode #52 now!
David Occhino has updated his Mansion font to version 3.0. It features 18 styles and 4 variants, giving a wide array of chilling visual features to the classic Haunted Mansion typeface! His free Mansion Cryptbats (introduced during his participation in the 2009 Doorless Chambers event) is also available.
David’s Mansion Cryptbats have been popular. Not only have they been used in the creation of Louie Mantia’s “Eerie Eyes” wallpaper, but they’ve been used in the creation of a unique death certificate for DoomBuggies.com. Fill out the simple form, and the website spits back a custom-made Haunted Mansion death certificate PDF.
These two free fonts, designed by David Occhino, are just the tip of the iceburg. David has other Disney and movie-inspired fonts on his website. Among his collection is Kingdom, a far more finished and professional take on the Disneyland® logo. My version, Started By a Mouse, was my very first font, and it pales in comparisson to David’s work. Keep going, David!
