 Leota Toombs was an Imagineer and is also the face of both Madame Leota and Little Leota, at the Haunted Mansion attractions in Disneyland, WDW, and Tokyo Disneyland parks.

Only her face was used for Madame Leota, the voice is that of Eleanor Audley. You will probably remember her best for her voice acting as Lady Tremaine and Maleficent . Leota’s actual voice can be heard calling out to exiting guests, “Hurry back! Hurry Back!”. 

Learned this during Keys to the Kingdom!

Great

So this week has been absolutely awful. The man that sparked my love for Disney, my Papaw, had 2 strokes. He lost his peripheral vision and will no longer be able to do his favorite thing, which is drive. Meanwhile, Nevan started to have anxiety attacks. We suspect they were triggered by Papaws strokes. Chest pain, shortness of breathe, throat swelling, numbness… It’s so hard to watch him go through this. Medications are too strong and dangerous, so we just have to deal. My next Disney trip seems far far away, and to be honest I haven’t even been thinking about it. That isn’t normal for me.

In Other News…

I’m SO hopeful that this is the month. My body seems to be regulating. If it isn’t, we see a specialist next month to start me on medications & check on my cysts.
