Return the ominous voice of Mara at Disneyland to its former glory! Let your “true” voice be heard, as Mara’s once was! Sign the online petition here.

Why I signed it: I was so fortunate as to have my first experience riding the Indiana Jones attraction at Disneyland way back when it was one of the highlights of the official Disneyana Convention one of the few times that convention was held by The Walt Disney Company at Disneyland rather than Walt Disney World. It was so long ago that all the effects in the attraction were still working as designed! Each time since then that I’ve returned, I’ve always enjoyed being warned by the ominous voice of Mara in that booming way of his. Imagine my surprise to hearing a recording of it this week and how I unimpressive it now sounds after being changed! I implore you, give back to us Disney fans the original voice of Mara! With any luck, you will restore it before my next vacation to my favorite place on earth, the Disneyland Resort. Whatever team changed Mara’s voice are certainly acting like “foolish mortals”!

See the new effects, which are great, and hear the not-great new voice on YouTube.

Again, please sign the online petition here.

      This is great news! I hadn’t heard, but I’m so glad. ^_^ @EyeOfMara himself replied to me in a DM just now: “The voice was changed back last week. Did you not know? A-hahaha! … It is the original voice, however altered slightly in pitch. It sounds 100% better! …”

    My bartender was sooo dumb… #howdumbwashe? …He thought he wasn’t supposed to look into the ice of Mara.

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
