Nothing puts me in the mood for Halloween like a trip to The Haunted Mansion. I’ve always loved the attraction’s eerie décor, ghostly special effects and even its cast members, who really bring the attraction to life (or should I say, “afterlife”?). That said, I couldn’t be more excited to share our latest attraction-inspired desktop wallpaper with all of you.
Those of you who attended our Trick-or-Meet-Up a week ago may recognize this image, which was designed by Senior Graphic Designer Tom May, who appeared at the event for meet and greets.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE MICKEY STENCIL TO CARVE PUMPKIN?
The Haunted Mansion is the first attraction my wife and I visited after we got engaged in front of Cinderella’s castle! That will always be my most memorable visit.
Thanks for this great wallpaper!
Wow, what a great memory!
Are you going to have a 1920×1080 version of this like you do with all of the others? I have a large monitor and would like for it to fit the entire screen.
Thank You DPB!!! I love these Wallpapers! 🙂
I mean where’s the 1900 x 1080?
Nice. But where’s the 1920 x 1200?
Thanks Carrie! No iPhone for me until next week, but I gotta get ready! 🙂
Browse to the page with the wallpaper downloads… when you find it, click on the one for iphone… then when you get it on your screen take a picture of it by pressing the power button on top and circle button on the front at the same time. It takes a photo. Access the photo in your iPhoto library and set it as your wallpaper. :0)
You know what would be a great item to either sell online or in the parks – the actual spooky eye wallpaper from The Haunted Mansion.
How do we upload to our iPhone? I need instructions!
My favorite memory is when there was actually a person inside the suit of armor and they reached out and scared us as we went by. This was at Disneyland. I always think of that one time whenever I ride and am scared to death that it will happen each time.
To add this wallpaper to your iPhone, access the blog through your phone’s Internet browser. Follow the link to the Wallpapers page and click on the correct dimensions for your mobile device. This will open a page with the full-sized wallpaper image, which you can then save to your iPhone. Tap and hold on the image for a few seconds to bring up a menu from the bottom of your screen, allowing you to save the image directly to your iPhone’s camera roll.
I’m so excited we have a Haunted Mansion desktop wallpaper now! Thank you! It’s on my desktop and my iPhone now. 🙂
My best memory of The Haunted Mansion would have to be when my wife and I took our son on it for the first time. He was 2-years-old and we were at the Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The Haunted Mansion was the second ride he went on, and he loved it! I was so excited because it has always been my favorite attraction since I was a child. As we rode in our Doombuggy he kept pointing at all the the ghosts saying, “look, Daddy! Ghosts!” Seeing his excitement (thankfully not terror), made me so happy as a father and a Disney fan. 😀
How do we upload the image to our android???
I LOVE this! And it’s great timing! This past Sunday I went surfing on the net looking for a Haunted Mansion picture for my phone, but the one I found didn’t fit right. Now it looks great 🙂 Thanks!
Great to hear, Emily!
This is still the best ride, full of humor and fantasy. I decided to accept the invitation: when I die, I’ll be the 1,000th ghost in the mansion.
Ok so this may sound really silly but my favorite memory of the Haunted Mansion is when I finally looked up. Growing up, we literally went to WDW at least once a month if not more. The HM always scared me and so I always looked away when we were in the elevator. Finally, when I was about 15, my aunt told me to look up and I saw it for the first time. I never look away anymore 🙂
I always had to dare myself to go on the attraction, I’d get so nervous looking at it! My mom would help give me that final push by telling me I’d done it last time we were there.
The Treat-Up is definitely one of my favorite HM memories, getting to meet so many people, from Imagineers, to members of the Disney Parks Blog team, to seeing fellow online Disney fans. I even got to have my HM wallpaper poster signed by Tom! I’ve said it before, but thank you so much for putting on that event!
Thanks Banks. We had a blast, too.
Honestly, my best memory is my most recent. My wife and I loved the Treat Up event last week! We had a blast and made so many memories. It may help that I was dressed like a hotdog though…
That was such a nice response, I’m happy we were able to make the event memorable!
