    • In 1990, Vincent was hired by Walt Disney Imagineering to voice the role of the 'Phantom' for Phantom Manor, a new ride for the upcoming Euro Disneyland, scheduled to open in 1992. He was given a French script but the takes were so bad, the entire performance was deemed unusable. After working on the French script for over three hours, Craig Fleming, who adapted the script and directed the recording sessions, gave him an English version of the script. Price recorded the entire piece in two takes. The English recordings were placed in the attraction, but after a few months of operation, Euro Disney (the company that owns and operates the resort) felt there was not enough French in Euro Disneyland. So by 1993, in an attempt to add more French to the park, Price's narration was removed from the attraction and replaced by the French spiel, this time recorded by 'Gerard Chevalier' . Price's narration can be found on a Disney Haunted Mansion CD. The CD, which contains a full ride-through of the attraction, claims Price's narration was "never used at Disneyland Paris", but that's because the park was still called Euro Disneyland when it was used. Today the park is now known as Parc Disneyland (as of 2002) and although his narration is long gone, one part of his performance remains in Phantom Manor: his laugh.
