On August 9, the
Haunted Mansion
at Disneyland turned 50 years
old. The beloved attraction, which opened to much anticipation back
in 1969, has thrilled millions of visitors over the years. This
particular Disney ride also has a massive fandom. Avid collectors
will snap up anything that features the attraction’s iconic
characters and imagery, from coffee mugs to a one-of-a- kind guitar
that
sells for $33,000
.  

I, myself, have been a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion since
first boarding a Doom Buggy as a small child. Over the years, I’ve
acquired many a Haunted Mansion item, from a Dooney & Burke
tote bag to a mini replica of the grandfather clock that appears in
the attraction. As luck would have it, I happened to be at the
“happiest place on earth” on the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary
and was able to celebrate in person.

Besides going on the ride itself, the main draw of the day was
the debut of a stunning collection of merchandise honoring the
ghoulish ride. During the celebration,
Disney introduced over 200 new pieces inspired by the Haunted
Mansion
. Hundreds of people spent hours in line to get their
hands on the limited edition and park exclusives. Thankfully,
there’s still plenty available to purchase online.

Check out 19 of our favorite pieces of Haunted Mansion merchandise:
The Haunted Mansion Ear Headband The
Haunted Mansion Ear Headband, available at ShopDisney for $78

As part of the Disney Parks Designer Collection, these stylish
Minnie Mouse ears that were created for the 50th Anniversary have a
heartwarming backstory. This headpiece was designed by Imagineer
Kim Irvine whose mother, Leota Tombs, was also an Imagineer. That’s
Leota as in Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion — her face
appears in the floating crystal ball on the ride. This limited
edition set of ears comes in a velvet lined display box which makes
it ideal for gifting.

Haunted Mansion Patch Set The
Haunted Mansion Patch Set, available at ShopDisney for $19.99

This set includes four embroidered patches including Madame
Leota, the iconic Haunted Mansion wallpaper, the HM monogram, and a
gargoyle with the tag “Foolish Mortals.” Thanks to an adhesive
backing these patches can be used temporarily or can be sewn on if
you’d like to make your love of the Haunted Mansion permanent.

Haunted Mansion Playing Card Set The
Haunted Mansion Playing Card Set, available at ShopDisney for
$18.75

This isn’t just a dull deck of cards; the front of each card
features artwork from the ride and the card backs are printed with
an eye-catching graphic. The coolest thing about the set is that it
comes in a hinged coffin-shaped box with a window front and purple
satin lining.

 

Haunted Mansion Stainless Steel Water Bottle The
Haunted Mansion Stainless Steel Water Bottle, available at
ShopDisney for $22.99

Take chilled beverages on the road in this stainless-steel water
bottle that features the Haunted Mansion’s distinctive wallpaper as
well as the “HM” logo. This vessel holds 14 ounces of liquid and
has a screw-top lid. 

The Haunted Mansion Spirit Jersey The
Haunted Mansion Spirit Jersey, available at ShopDisney for
$64.99

Disney has done spectacularly well with its series of spirit
jersey. They’ve gone from basic black to a variety of jerseys that
are themed to popular attractions. The Haunted Mansion “Ghost Host”
version features the iconic wallpaper on the bottom half and its
name boldly on the back. Some elements of this 100% cotton pullover
even glow in the dark.

The Haunted Mansion MagicBand The
Haunted Mansion MagicBand, available at ShopDisney for $24.99

Haunted Mansion fans who are headed to Disney World can upgrade
their MagicBand style with this Haunted Mansion Maid and Butler
Band. The MagicBand, for those not in the know, allows easy access
to the parks, FastPasses, purchases, and more. 

Haunted Mansion Wallpaper Backpack The
Haunted Mansion Wallpaper Backpack, available at ShopDisney for
$29.99

Just in time for back to school, this roomy and affordable
backpack is decorated with an all-over print of the Haunted Mansion
wallpaper. It has various pockets, adjustable shoulder straps, and
a double-zip main compartment. Use it for school, work, or play (or
a day at Disneyland). 

Opera Ghost Plush Set Opera
Ghost Plus Set, available at ShopDisney for $59.99

If you’re looking for something of the plush variety, consider
this set of limited edition Opera Ghosts as seen at the end of the
Haunted Mansion’s graveyard scene (although these two are far more
adorable). The pair feature glow-in-the-dark details and come in a
sturdy headstone-shaped display package. 

Haunted Mansion Metal Earth 3D Model Kit The
Haunted Mansion Metal Earth 3D Model Kit, available at Shop Disney
for $17.99

While this isn’t a model of the original Haunted Mansion in
Disneyland, we still love this version based on the mansion that
resides in Walt Disney World in Florida. This Metal Earth 3D model
is easy to put together. You just pop out the pieces and connect
using tabs and holes — no glue needed. 

 

Madame Leota Squeeze Toy for Dogs Madame
Leota Squeeze Toy for Dogs, available at ShopDisney for $17.99

I bought not one, but two of these Madame Leota squeeze toys
from the Disney Tails collection for my Aussiedoodle puppy. While
she killed the squeaker in the first one, the second one has held
up well.  

 

Haunted Mansion Tightrope Walker Minnie Ears The
Haunted Mansion Tightrope Walker Minnie Ears, available on Amazon
for $34.45

The stretching portraits of the Haunted Mansion have a cult
following of their own. One of the most popular is the portrait of
the tightrope walker (who happens to be walking a thin rope across
a crocodile’s gaping mouth). These ears pay tribute to her
colorful, and ironically cheery, outfit. 

‘The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion’ Book
“The
Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion,” available on
Amazon for $17.95

“The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion” by
Jeff Bahem is ideal reading for those who want to do a deep dive
into the history, creation, and analysis of the ride. This new 50th
Anniversary edition, written by a true expert, has been revised and
expanded.

‘The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic’ Book “The
Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic,” available on
Amazon for $16.49

Another popular book based solely on the Haunted Mansion is “The
Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic” by former Imagineer
Jason Surrell. This book includes rare concept sketches,
architectural drawings, and collection of photographs. 

‘Disney Parks Presents: The Haunted Mansion’ Picture Book “Disney
Parks Presents: The Haunted Mansion,” available on Amazon for
$12.59

While the previous two books are more for the adult fan
interested in the Mansion’s history, this title is for their kids.
This not-so-spooky picture book is based on the unforgettable song
“Grim Grinning Ghosts” that plays during the ride. It even comes
with a CD of the song to play while you read. 

Disney Parks Haunted Mansion Puzzle Disney
Parks Haunted Mansion Puzzle, available on Amazon for $36.07

Sort through 1,000 pieces to create an artistic, and eerily
cute, image of the progression of the attraction. Be warned, it
might haunt you until you are done putting all the pieces
together. 

 

Dooney and Burke Haunted Mansion Tote Dooney
& Burke Haunted Mansion Tote, available at ShopDisney for
$223.50 (originally $298)

I own one of these Dooney and Burke Haunted Mansion purses, and
it’s become one of my go-to bags. It’s very sturdy, lightweight,
and the classic wallpaper design is a subtle ode to the ride. The
size that I have has since sold out, but you can purchase this one
that’s currently on sale.

Madame Leota OtterBox iPhone Case Madame
Leota OtterBox iPhone Case, available on ShopDisney for $69.99

This OtterBox Haunted Mansion phone case isn’t just fun, it’s
also functional. Designed for the iPhone 8 Plus and 7 Plus, this
sturdy case features OtterBox’s Drop+ protection and an integrated
Madame Leota PopSocket PopGrip. I only use OtterBox cases on my
iPhone and have been very happy with the protection they
provide.

Haunted Mansion Luggage Tag The
Haunted Mansion Luggage Tag, available at ShopDisney for $12.99

The Hat Box Ghost luggage tag with the line “A Ghost Will Follow
You Home” is an excellent fit for those heading to Disneyland or
Disney World. This faux leather tag has an adjustable buckle strap,
an address label on the back, and helps identify your suitcase at
baggage claim.

Haunted Mansion Clock The
Haunted Mansion Clock, available at ShopDisney for $80

The Haunted Mansion clock, a mini replica of the version that
appears in the ride, isn’t just an eerie reminder of the
attraction, it really does tell time. The 13-inch high clock
features fingers that point at the numbers, a snake ticks off the
seconds, and it glows in the dark. I have one of these clocks, and
it’s proved to be a great conversation piece.
