posted on November 28th, 2015 by Victoria Lim, Managing Editor, Walt Disney World Public Relations


Now that the tryptophan is wearing off, you’ll need some energy if holiday shopping is part of your seasonal tradition.

This Week in Disney Parks Photos, we’re sharing a few fun ideas for holiday gifts – from Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

Michelle Harker shared this year’s commemorative Disney ¡Viva Navidad! items – a zip fleece hoodie, T-shirt, dimensional ornament, and limited release pins featuring the The Three Caballeros and Donald Duck atop an ornament.

At both Disneyland Resort D Street, Downtown Disney District and Walt Disney World Resort Pin Traders, Disney Springs Marketplace, four new Funko Pop! figures themed to the Haunted Mansion just went on sale yesterday. Check out Ezra, Gus, Phineas and the popular Hatbox Ghost. Each figure retails for $19.95 plus tax.

Try not to eat your viewing device for these next items: debuting December 15, hand-crafted chocolates from the Ganachery at Disney Springs – “the most beautiful product in the world” according to Disney Pastry Chef Stefan Riemer.

A great keepsake for the true all-things-Disney fan: the custom-made bars that celebrate Disney’s iconic destinations (including Aulani, Disneyland Paris and Disneyland Resort) and the “Fab Five”.

As a dark-and-semi-sweet chocoholic, these may not make it out of the Disney Springs parking lot.

What Disney gift are you hoping to receive?

Halloween How-To: Haunted Mansion Makeup Tutorials

posted on September 15th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager


Halloween is fast approaching and over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you advice from the various experts we have here at Walt Disney World Resort on all things Halloween: creating creepy makeup looks, designing simple yet amazing Haunted Mansion costumes of your own, stirring up yummy holiday treats, and decorating your house with spooky decor.

This week, we’re kicking off the series with a behind-the-scenes look at how you can create two different Haunted Mansion looks for young kids. One look is based on the famous Haunted Mansion maid. The other was inspired by the new Attractionista’s Gracie doll. (Both looks are designed for young children, but the techniques can easily be adapted for teens and adults as well).

Head backstage with us now to a Walt Disney World Cosmetology area for a tutorial on how to create a scary Haunted Mansion Maid look.

And a look inspired by the new Disney Attractionista doll, Gracie.

Will you try any of these at home? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.

Daylight Strikes Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris

posted on March 9th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager


The Haunted Mansion, and the different versions of it at Disney Parks around the globe, are among my favorite to write about because they have such great storylines – and stories – to tell.

jhujhu647821

In today’s sunrise shot, which was snapped by photographer Tom Bricker, you can see the sun rising over Phantom Manor at Disneyland Park (in Paris). Not only is it a lovely shot, but this photo actually illustrates a cool fun fact about the attraction: Unlike other Disney Parks around the world, this Haunted Mansion-type of attraction actually appears in Frontierland. (At Walt Disney World Resort, you can find it in Liberty Square, at the Disneyland Resort in California it’s located in New Orleans Square and at Tokyo Disneyland, it’s in Fantasyland).
