  • The Haunted Mansion just turned 50. Disney released over 200 items to celebrate this milestone.
  • One of the most beloved amusement park rides in the entire world, the Haunted Mansion has a cult-like following.
  • During the anniversary events, Haunted Mansion fans waited for hours in line to snap up new items honoring the ride. There’s still plenty available to purchase online.
  • Haunted Mansion fans who are headed to Disney World can upgrade their MagicBand style with a Haunted Mansion Maid and Butler Band ($24.99).

On August 9, the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland turned 50 years old. The beloved attraction, which opened to much anticipation back in 1969, has thrilled millions of visitors over the years. This particular Disney ride also has a massive fandom. Avid collectors will snap up anything that features the attraction’s iconic characters and imagery, from coffee mugs to a one-of-a- kind Guitar that sells for $33,000.

I, myself, have been a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion since first boarding a Doom Buggy as a small child. Over the years, I’ve acquired many a Haunted Mansion item, from a Dooney & Burke tote bag to a mini replica of the grandfather clock that appears in the attraction. As luck would have it, I happened to be at the “happiest place on earth” on the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary and was able to celebrate in person.

Besides going on the ride itself, the main draw of the day was the debut of a stunning collection of merchandise honoring the ghoulish ride. During the celebration, Disney introduced over 200 new pieces inspired by the Haunted Mansion. Hundreds of people spent hours in line to get their hands on the limited edition and park exclusives. Thankfully, there’s still plenty available to purchase online.

I have one of these clocks, and it’s proved to be a great conversation piece.
