It may not be for everyone, but there are those foolish mortals who would die for the opportunity to tie the knot at Disney’s Haunted Mansion. From its spirited ballroom celebration to the immortal-in-afterlife attic bride, this retirement home for ghosts offers the perfectly paranormal powered backdrop for a ghoulishly great gothic exchange of vows.

Weddings at Walt Disney World could be considered a fairytale come true. Experts at the Florida resort make matrimony dreams come true tailoring themes to fans favorite Disney themes. These include creepy cool choices for those with a more macabre taste.

Disney’s Haunted Mansion Ballroom

Unable to get an appointment with Madame Leota, Inside the Magic reached out to the experts at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons, hoping to dig up the dirt on Haunted Mansion nuptials. We learned that immersive theming, including weddings within the Magic Kingdom, can easily be creatively crafted under their guidance. Bride and groom gatherings at the Haunted Mansion fall under their Wishes Collection.

Since a talking raven revealing the grim grinning details would be a bit unsettling, we resorted to modern email communication and asked the experts for some insight regarding details for planning an ethereal espousal experience. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share their reply.

Inspiration from the Haunted Mansion

We have found that disney wedding couples love to incorporate their favorite Disney stories throughout their reception. Whether it’s a fully immersive Haunted Mansion themed dinner or simple place cards themed to the characters in the attraction, or a fun photo backdrop for guests to enjoy – the Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings team can bring any wedding vision to life.

The Perfect Photo Backdrop

The winding hallways, spooky courtyard, and looming mansion make the Haunted Mansion a dream photo backdrop for many Disney Wedding couples. Perhaps the most popular reason is Disney Fine Art Photography’s ability to edit the portraits to make the couple appear to fit right in with the 999 haunts on the property.

Our team tends to see weddings incorporating the Haunted Mansion in October (close to Halloween) – as well as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Tower of Terror. As mentioned above, it’s more popular for couples to include the Haunted Mansion throughout reception theming, their wedding invitation, favors, etc. Around Halloween, we do see that many of our couples will include the Haunted Mansion on their Magic Kingdom portrait session route.
