This month on the Disney Parks Blog, we’re getting into the Halloween spirit early by taking a peek at our favorite spooky attraction at Disney Parks – the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom Park. And who better to give us this inside look than Walt Disney Imagineers themselves? They’ll give us a fresh look at the cool details guests can spot at this legendary attraction right here on the Disney Parks Blog, each Wednesday through Halloween.

In today’s video, Imagineers Steve Vagnini, Stacy Shoff and Diana Brost point out some of the “happy hints” guests can spot in the Haunted Mansion’s cemetery queue that give a nod to the attraction’s larger storyline. These easy-to-spot but easy-to-miss clues give guests an insight into the happy haunts they may encounter inside, an actor who lent his famous bass vocals to the attraction, as well as fascinating hidden touches you’d never expect: for example, did you know the mansion’s grounds has a doggie door for the caretaker’s dog?

Thanks to Walt Disney Imagineering for the video!


  • I had noticed some of these ‘Happy Hints’ and always love looking around to see what new things I can find. There’s always so much to look at and take in. I love it. It really does help pass the time if the line is long. If not, I sometimes just let people go past me so I can take more in or even take photos.
