Welcome, Foolish Mortals to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host, your Ghost Host.

Haunted Mansion is a classic Disney Parks attraction that features several spooky elements, including hitchhiking ghosts, the iconic stretching room, doom buggies, and more. But one of the most memorable aspects of the ride is the Ghost Host.

Throughout your tour of the Mansion, the Ghost Host tells you all the spooktacular details, giving you hot and cold running chills as you ride your Doom Buggy bypassing the 999 Happy Haunts. Because the Ghost Host is, well, a ghost, Guests never really see this character as he is only a voice that comes over the speaker in the stretching room and throughout the ride.

But there are theories that have been going around the internet revolving around the Ghost Host and his true identity — which shopDisney may have just confirmed with its new merchandise!

shopDisney just released a new Haunted Mansion merchandise line, which includes multiple new Haunted Mansion ornaments. One of the ornaments is labeled Master Gracey Sketchbook Ornament, which looks extremely similar to a confirmed photo of the Ghost Host — meaning Disney may have just confirmed that the Ghost Host really is Master Gracey!

One Disney fan shared the similarities in a TikTok video, which has since gone viral with many fans weighing in and sharing their opinion.

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!
