Disneyland’s beloved Haunted Mansion attraction is celebrating 50 years on the west coast, but Walt Disney World fans can’t get enough of the east coast version of the ride, either! Disney just announced some ghoulishly grand offerings to celebrate the Haunted Mansion for one day only at Walt Disney World, and we’re rushing to Orlando as soon as possible.
On August 9, guests at Magic Kingdom can join the 999 happy haunts in a Haunted Mansion celebration, with epic new merchandise, a themed treat, and PhotoPass opportunities that may even turn you into a grim grinning ghost yourself. Here’s what’s in store for you if you visit Walt Disney World next week.
Merchandise and collectibles
If you’re anything like us, you love exclusive Disney merchandise that you can’t get anywhere else. You can stop by Memento Mori, Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, and Frontier Trading Post to pick up these. Your suitcase may be full of souvenirs by the end of your Disney trip, but you know what they say at the Haunted Mansion…there’s always room for one more! From commemorative pins to gorgeous Dooney & Bourke handbags, there’s something for every Haunted Mansion fan.
Did you even celebrate Haunted Mansion if you didn’t take a photo? Disney’s PhotoPass has got your back. These are two great PhotoPass opportunities to make you look just like a ghost host (or a terrified passenger in a doom buggy)!
Finally, on August 9 you can get an exclusive treat in honor of the Haunted Mansion. This Host-a-Ghost cupcake will be available at the Haunted Mansion ice cream cart in Liberty Square.
Want to see the happy haunts yourself?
All of this exclusive Haunted Mansion merchandise is available starting at 7:45 a.m. at Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square, so show up to the park early next Friday to buy your favorite items and even ride the Haunted Mansion before everyone else!
