* Jim is a genuinely good parent to his kids, particularly Michael who he tries to encourage to get over his phobia of spiders. He's never angry or impatient with either of them; even when he and Megan are trapped in the mausoleum and need Michael to open the door, he stays relatively calm, avoids frightening him and tries to talk him through his fear. Compare this to Megan, who is understandably scared and yelling at Michael to open the door ''now.''
* [[spoiler: Elizabeth being the ghost ball, especially when you consider that without her intervention, Ramsley's plan would have succeeded. That she indirectly saved Jim's kids from being held hostage tells you enough about what kind of a person it was that Gracey fell in love with.]]


!!The Rides



* Since he was such a fan-favorite character, the Imagineers brought back the Hatbox Ghost, with advanced effects that allow him to work! Many fans are overjoyed about his permanent re-addition, and some even claim that he completes the Mansion.
* The Ghost Post manages to make one that is also rather creepy. Apparently, all of [[GoldDigger Constance's]] husbands still love her, even after she murdered them. And she seems to at least enjoy their company.
* The Hatbox Ghost as a character, as in both iterations, his role is that of a justice-seeking BigGood. Originally, the Bride was a villain, and the HBG provides the punchline that connects her to the head-ghosts in the attic's boxes, and in the new version, he hints to the viewers where some evidence of Constance's crimes may be. Even though he's silent, both times his character exists only to expose the Bride in order bring justice to the Mansion and rid it of its only evil.
* For all the tragedy and torment that [[FateWorseThanDeath Melanie and her soul has and will experience till Judgement Day]], she is still sweet enough, even in death, to ensure that no one will remain trapped within her cursed home like she is as her corpse is seen pointing towards the exit and escape from the Phantom's condemnation...until the 2019 refurbishment removed this, turning Melanie's ultimate fate into an obsessed ghost begging anyone she sees to marry her.
