    Disney Theme Park Merchandise's home and decor team have created some new authentic merchandise that has been inspired by the Haunted Mansion's amazing details. These new items will be availabe at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

    Cody Reynolds, a creative manager at Disney Design Group, shares some insight into these nine new items.

    The Hourglass

    “I’ve wanted to make an hourglass for years,” said Cody, who is an 18-year Disney cast member. “This 7 ½-inch-tall hourglass has gargoyles from the stretching room and the famous wallpaper design on the top. White sand is more commonly used in hourglasses, yet we chose purple sand to match the overall color palette. The hourglass keeps track of about an hour.”

    Candelabra

    The candelabra features a gargoyle with the base was inspired by the paneling found in the queue just after the stretching room.

    Frame

    The frame holds 5”x 7” photographs and is reminiscent of the plaque from outside the attraction.

    Music Box

    The music box plays ‘Grim Grinning Ghosts,’ and draws inspiration from Madame Leota’s tombstone outside the attraction. Her epitaph is included on the inside lid.”

    Coaster Set

    The four-coaster set also uses some of the more recognizable epitaphs from the outside graveyard, including those of Madame Leota and Master Gracey.

    Bat Bottle Stopper

    The bottle stopper resembles the bat stanchion topper from the queue.

    Pillow and Throw

    [ATTACH]14469.vB[/ATTACH]

    [ATTACH]14472.vB[/ATTACH]

    For the pillow, we considered using the chair design from the endless hallway scene,” continued Cody. “Yet we selected a simple black pillow with the phrase ‘Rest in Peace.’ The back of the pillow and the throw include the famous wallpaper design.”

    Candy Dish

    [ATTACH]14464.vB[/ATTACH]

    The candy dish also uses the wallpaper motif, along with the iconic phrase “Room for One More,” which is a nod to the ghost host inviting guests to join the 999 happy haunts that live in the mansion.

    Tarot Cards

    [ATTACH]14470.vB[/ATTACH]

    Cody mentioned the tarot card-like hangtags found on the items were inspired by Madame Leota’s cards. The purple card contains verbiage that sounds like how Madame Leota would describe the new merchandise. The cards also contain nods to details found inside and outside the attraction.

    Will you be looking for any of these items on your next trip to WDW, I know a man who will :D
