The Hatbox Ghost Resides In The Haunted Mansion Once Again

The internet has been buzzing quite a long time about the most famous resident of the Mansion to come back, the Hatbox Ghost

From his short cameo appearance when the Mansion first opened, to Park merchandise, an demonstration at D23, fans have been wanting him to come back home.

And after years and wishing, wanting, hoping, and praying, it finally came to be with the Disney Parks Blog officially announced the return of the Hatbox Ghost.

And today was the day that everyone waited for.
And today, I get to see him for the first time.

When the rope dropped at the Hub, practically everyone booked it to the Haunted Mansion.

Did they anticipate a huge turn out for the Hatbox Ghost?
Or was this set up already in the plans because it was projected to be busy today with the Tinkerbell marathon taking place?
Or both?

Sorry ol' chap. He's not the one you are looking for.
Go ask the raven that keeps flying around.
Maybe he'll help you

Mr Raven, where can I find the Hatbox Ghost?
*Caw* *Caw* Find Hatbox Ghost. With. *Caw* The Hats *Caw* *Caw*

That doesn't help.
Maybe Madame Leota can help me. She has a way with the disembodied
