13 of Our Favorite Happy Haunts at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion
For nearly 50 years, the happy haunts of the Haunted Mansion have welcomed guests to their delightfully unlivable abode. In honour of the 50th anniversary of this spooktacular attraction, we here at MickeyBlog thought we’d share with you 13 of our favorite ghoulish ghosts.
(Pictured Above) One of the Haunted Mansions most iconic Happy Haunts, Hatbox Ghost is very proud of his hatbox collection and considers it his crowning achievement. His favorite is lined with deep mauve velveteen and he believes it’s best viewed from inside. The Hatbox Ghost briefly appeared in the Haunted Mansion when the attraction first opened. Then, he mysteriously vanished, only to reappear in 2015.
Madama Leota is, quite literally, a figurehead in the Mansion with ominous powers. She serves as the connection between you and the spirit world. You’ll find her floating in the dead center of a séance circle, calling out for “serpents and spiders, tail of a rat.”
Rolo Rumkin, Uncle Theodore, Cousin Algernon, Ned Nub and Phineas Pock—are the singing bust quintet found in the graveyard of the Haunted Mansion. Their voices are harmonizing to the attraction’s theme song, “Grim Grinning Ghosts (The Screaming Song).”
Ezra Beane, Professor Phineas Plump and Gus—are always cunningly looking for a way out of the Mansion.Ezra is the tallest of the hitchhiking trio and lived his life as a vagabond. He is considered the leader of the three. Phineas Plump travelled the country hocking snake oil at train depots. He crossed over to the spirit realm while experimenting with a new miracle concoction and even in the afterlife keeps his trusty carpet bag by his side. Finally, Gus served most of his time for a crime he did not commit. You’ll find all three trying to hitch a ride on your doom buggy as you leave the cemetery toward the end of the ride!
The Ghost Bride
Did you know Constance wears a string of pearls for each of her dearly departed husbands? Each of them with a rather untimely death leaving Constance a widow five times over! You’ll find her in the attic scene as well as in portraits featured throughout the mansion.
This quirky organist plays the Haunted Mansion’s theme song in the ballroom to everyone’s delight. Dozens of ghostly heads float out of his organ like visible musical notes. As your Doom Buggy travels along the upstairs walkway, look down onto the Grand Ballroom there, you will find Victor playing his music for the “spirited” guests.
Lastly, the Ghost Host, one of the 999 happy haunts who call the Haunted Mansion home, welcomes “foolish mortals” into the attraction. He is heard, but never seen throughout the attraction. If you want to join these spirits at the Mansion, he points out “there is always room for one more!”
