Many Disney fans know about the horseshoe prints outside of Haunted Mansion, which lead to the hearse and Phantom Horse, located directly in front of the attraction, but we bet you didn’t realize that this trail actually goes into a different land — connecting to a different area of the Park.

In a TikTok video by @walruscarp, we dive deeper into where exactly the horseshoe prints outside of Haunted Mansion lead too. The initial horseshoe trail leads from the hearse and Phantom Horse to outside the Haunted Mansion queue area, ending at the red pavement.

But, if you start walking towards the Tangled-themed bathrooms, you’ll notice the horseshoe prints actually pick back up. Follow that horse trail into the bathroom area, and you will see they lead right up to Maximus’s stable area!

The spirited Haunted Mansion adventure is guided by the “disembodied voice of the Ghost Host” as he is your private tour guide “through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.” Beware of hitchhiking ghosts!

Disney World describes this attraction as:

The disembodied voice of the Ghost Host is your private guide through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.

Glide past a casket-filled conservatory, Madame Leota’s chilling séance room and a ghostly graveyard of singing specters as you attempt to find your way out. Beware of hitchhikers—these phantom pranksters may follow you home.

Happy haunting!
