More The Haunted Mansion merchandise has arrived at Walt Disney World Resort this week in honor of the new film and upcoming Halloween season. These items match the collection that first started to materialize a week ago and we found most of these items in Memento Mori at Magic Kingdom.
This pullover hoodie is black, with a neon ombre green-blue design on the front. It reads “Foolish Mortal” and the design is inspired by the Haunted Mansion’s eye wallpaper.
“The Haunted Mansion” is on the right sleeve.
The button-up is black with a collar and short sleeves.
It resembles a bowling shirt, with teal and pink stripes down the right side.
On the stripes are “The Haunted Mansion” and the clock with a 13 on its face.
The neon colors of this sweatshirt will pop in any light, but this pullover is also glow-in-the-dark. In purple lettering under the neckline, you can see the Haunted Mansion primary logo.
Pickwick, the ghost who hangs from a chandelier in the ballroom, is joined by the King and a shy dinner guest on this glow-in-the-dark pullover sweatshirt.
The text on this shirt is the only portion that will glow in the dark.
The new phone case is black and features some of the Haunted Mansion’s most famous spirits: Constance Hatchaway a.k.a. the Bride, the Hatbox Ghost, the singing busts, Madame Leota, and the three Hitchhiking Ghosts.
A purple gargoyle, the Haunted Mansion sign, and a coffin being pulled open from the inside are also pictured.
This gray tee is patterned all over with neon images of Haunted Mansion iconography like Madame Leota in her crystal ball, bats, the Hatbox Ghost’s face, and graves.
This book box is inspired by Madame Leota’s gravestone, with a 3D sculpture of her face on the front. It reads “Dear sweet Leota, beloved by all. In regions beyond now, but having a ball.”
The text and extra designs are in white against the book’s black pleather cover.
Fake pages are on the sides.
“The Haunted Mansion” is printed on the spine.
The interior is plain black.
The set includes two plates — one small and one large — wrapped in a black ribbon.
The small plate has a white center. The border has black and teal-green stripes. The largest black stripe features gray dragons.
The center of the small plate features an image from the wallpaper.
Both plates are stoneware. They are dishwasher- and microwave-safe.
The large plate also has a white center, and a border of diagonal black and green stripes.
It features an “HM” logo in black.
This candle comes in a case resembling the coffin being opened from the inside.
Two candles are in golden holders atop the black coffin.
It has a red base with golden borders.
Two zombie hands are prying open the coffin from one end.
The top lifts off as a lid for the candle.
The sides of the coffin are decorated with intricate bone and bird designs.
We found this and the items below over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, in Discovery Trading Co.
This kitchen towel set includes two blue towels with black fringe and stripes.
This one has Madame Leota in her crystal ball at one end.
The other towel features graves and the stretching room’s gargoyles.
There are black stripes along the sides with intricate swirl designs.
Finally, this set of standard playing cards features the Hitchhiking Ghosts against a green background with the Haunted Mansion ghosts. The cards come in a coffin-shaped box.
Each face card features a different Hitchhiking Ghost, the Hatbox Ghost, or the Caretaker and his dog.

The upcoming “Haunted Mansion” film follows a doctor (Rosario Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase Dillon) moving into a haunted abode in New Orleans. Dawson’s character ends up calling in a priest (Owen Wilson) to exorcise the manor. They also get help from a widowed scientist-turned-failed-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a historian (Danny DeVito).
Jamie Lee Curtis portrays Madame Leota, and Jared Leto serves as the Hatbox Ghost. Curtis called the film “modern, fresh, old-fashioned, and scary, but not scary like a monster movie. It’s scary, like a Disney ride, and funny. If you go on that ride, there’s a lot of humor as well as the scary, ghost-y stuff.”
Curtis, Wilson, and Stanfield briefly worked the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland to promote the film.
During the “Studio Showcase Day 1: Celebrate the Magic of Disney and Pixar” panel at the D23 Expo 2022 in Anaheim, Disney debuted the “Haunted Mansion” trailer. Director Justin Simien took to the stage to speak about the project and detail some of the cameos audiences can expect from Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, Hasan Minhaj, and more.
Walt Disney Studios will present a behind-the-scenes look at “Haunted Mansion” during Midsummer Scream — Halloween & Horror Convention in Long Beach, California, at the end of July.
Zillow shared a behind-the-scenes look at the various movie sets in a fictional “listing” for the haunted abode.
“Haunted Mansion” will be in theaters on July 28, 2023. You can watch the trailer below:
This classic Disney attraction can now be found at several Disney Parks around the world. The first iteration opened in 1969 at Disneyland as part of the New Orleans Square expansion. Two years later, it was an opening day attraction in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom, and in 1983, it was an opening day attraction at Tokyo Disneyland, too.
The Disneyland Paris version of Haunted Mansion is named Phantom Manor, while at Hong Kong Disneyland, Mystic Manor is a completely different attraction that draws some inspiration from the original whilst avoiding references to the afterlife out of respect toward traditional Chinese cultural precedent.
Haunted Mansion is full of famous ghostly characters and spirits like Madame Leota, the Bride, the subjects of the stretching room portraits, and the Hatbox Ghost.
The Hatbox Ghost was in the original Disneyland Haunted Mansion on opening day. Technology had not quite caught up to the ghost’s vanishing and appearing head, however, so the effect only lasted a few weeks before disappearing for nearly 50 years.
This effect returned to the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland in 2015. He appears at the end of the attic scene, after the Bride “greets” guests. The Hatbox Ghost will soon be installed in the Magic Kingdom version of the Haunted Mansion, too.
