The Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom will be the site of a few eerie opportunities on April 13 to kick off becoming the 13th attraction in Disney World to offer an on-ride photo.

Your Doom Buggy awaits…

New Ride Photo

In the new ride photo, a ghost — or two or three — will now follow you home!  Remember to wear or carry with you a MagicBand that’s linked to your My Disney Experience account while riding in your Doom Buggy — your photo will “automagically” be added to your account!

More Photo Opportunities

On top of the new on-ride attraction photo, a few special one-day-only photo ops will be available around the Haunted Mansion! These opportunities will begin at 9 a.m. on April 13.

In front of the Haunted Mansion near the hearse will be the chance to pose for  Magic Shot photos featuring the Hitchhiking Ghosts! Some “extra magic” will be added to your regular photo at this location. An additional Magic Shot will feature your head in the Hatbox Ghost’s box!

The evening will offer two other photo opportunities. One will include purple and green Mickey-heads floating eerily through the picture.


The other will allow you to pose for a photo with the Mansion caretaker’s lantern.


You’ll find the PhotoPass Photographer for these nighttime shots just outside the attraction’s nearby shop, Memento Mori.

Cadaver Dans

Once the sun goes down, the Cadaver Dans — the other-worldly alter ego of Magic Kingdom’s barbershop quartet — will perform in Liberty Square!

There will also be a special Midnight Fright Delight “browkie”  available for $6.99 at Liberty Square Market. The brownie cookie combo is inspired by the famously haunted grandfather’s clock inside the Haunted Mansion.

  1. It seems like the lenticular sale is going to be a nightmare, haha. The chaos and congestion in there for even one photo can make it difficult to shop. Two to three family groups waiting for the spirits to complete one image per group maxes out that space. I’m hoping there will be a different set up for that day. If there’s anyone who understands crowd control… ?

  2. Yay for the Cadaver Dans! I think they may be my favorite part of the Halloween season at Walt Disney World.

    I’m generally not a big fan of on-ride photos on dark rides. My eyes are kind of sensitive, so the flash tends to blind me for a little while and I miss part of the actual show. If I know in advance where it’s going to be, like on Spaceship Earth, I can keep my eyes squeezed tightly shut or cover them with my hands until I get past the camera. However, it still has the same effect of making me miss a bit of what I went in there to see.
