VIDEO: A Closer Look at Haunted Mansion Authentic Products Coming to Disney Parks This Fall

In recent months, I’ve been sharing exciting news about new Haunted Mansion merchandise coming to Disney Parks and the Disney Parks online store this fall. These items are part of an art program we’re calling “Haunted Mansion Authentic” that was designed especially for Disney Theme Park Merchandise. I caught up with Cody Reynolds, Creative Design Manager with Disney Design Group, at the Haunted Mansion attraction in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort. Cody is part of a team that includes artists, merchandisers, planners and others who have worked on this program for the past two years. He shared stories of his favorite things with me in this short video. I’ll admit that the first 10 seconds of this video is something I’ve always wanted to do at Disney Parks!

Look for these items and more this fall in select locations at Disneyland Resort and at Walt Disney World Resort, including at the Haunted Mansion-themed merchandise location coming to Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom Park.

Select items will also be offered via the Disney Parks online store later this year at http://www.DisneyStore.com/HauntedMansion.

I hope you do more videos like this, Steven! I always enjoy your blog posts and it is great fun to see you in settings like the Haunted Mansion.

@Jennifer – Thank you for the kind words. Good news is that there will be a few more videos coming soon. :)

James’ wife here – I am so looking forward to the crossbody letter carrier D&B bag that comes out in the Fall. I have my calendar alerts on my phone to start checking September 1st, until it comes out and until I can snag one before they sell out, I will be ever vigilant! :) I also want(see I did not say need) the shoes – oh I hope those are online as well or I will have to wait until Spring 2015 to go to the new store outside Haunted Mansion!!! Either way I am psyched!!!

 

Steven Miller on August 8th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

@James’ Wife – I’m happy to hear you’re excited. The shoes look really good in person (Sadly, I don’t think they will fit my feet). I’m unsure at this point if they will be offered online.

I love it! Steven, you should do more videos like this one…..what a fun way to introduce the new merchandise!

 

Steven Miller on August 8th, 2014 at 4:06 pm

@Kelley – Thank you for the note. :) I’m working on a few more videos in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned. Granted, they won’t involve opening the Haunted Mansion doors which was just the coolest thing ever!!

Good stuff here!
I noticed that a few shirts for HM 45th are already out for sale- so folks better jump!

And Cody is from “Sunnydale”? Nice.

@Les – Aces! Glad you liked it (thought you might :).

You are correct. There are some limited release tees being offered now through August 17 at http://www.DisneyStore.com/HauntedMansion

Many of the tees were printed on Hanes Nano shirts. In addition to the 45th Anniversary tees, the other shirts use artwork I showed in these previous articles:

Steven,

the first 10 seconds were terrifying and the last 10 seconds were hilarious! The in-between was pretty good too.

Thanks!

 

Steven Miller on August 8th, 2014 at 4:16 pm

@Elizabeth – That’s the best review!! Thanks for the laugh :)

Steven what a great Collection. Can’t wait to come down in fall and pick up that apron to greet my Halloween guests this year.

Excellent video

Steven do u know anything about the Gracey Manor Woven Tapestry and the HM Plaque coming out ?

 

Steven Miller on August 13th, 2014 at 10:28 am

@Eric – I know that both of those items are coming to Disney Parks. Here is some information about an event we are having at Disneyland Resort on August 16. You can see some additional images. The tapestry isn’t shown in this link:

Yet, you can see part of it in the first image from this story:

Of the merchandise on that link, will any of it become available at WDW? I’d love to get the family of busts and the caretaker figure. Or will I have to place my order by phone and wait for delivery?

Victor’s wife here – was just at Disneyland but didn’t see the D&B purses. Will those be available online, and do you know when? I have to have one of these!
