Here are 4 Fun Facts about the Haunted Mansion

The Pet Cemetery’s Famous Amphibian

As you leave mansion, look to your left and you’ll notice a small pet cemetery. There are a number of tombstones and one interesting nod to the former inhabitant to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh…Mr Toad!

Grim Grinning Ghosts

The creepy (yet recognizable) organ music you hear in the stretching room is just “Grim Grinning Ghosts” slowed way down.  You are hearing one song on the whole attraction, starting very slow and increasing in tempo as the ride goes on.

Multi-purposed Audio-Animatronic

In the ballroom scene, there is an elderly woman sitting in a rocking chair.  This audio-animatronic figure is a duplicate made from the Grandmother in one of the side scenes of the Carousel of Progress.

Stretching Room

Disneyland and Walt Disney World may both have the Haunted Mansion, but are constructed in very different ways. The DLR version is an actual elevator which takes guests underneath the mansion where the load-in area is located. In Florida, the goal of the stretching room is more about setting the scene, as they didn’t need to have an elevator due to the size of the property.

Featured on the Keys to the Kingdom Tour

When you’re going through the Magic Kingdom on the 4-hour Keys to the Kingdom Tour, one of the destinations is the Haunted Mansion. Not only does the tour guide share information about the backstory, but they also provide insights into the “backstage” elements of the attraction!

Tip: You can book your Keys to the Kingdom tour (and more) at your Disney Resort Concierge Desk
