The Hatbox Ghost Arrives at Walt Disney World


The Hatbox Ghost has made an appearance at the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom Park. This iconic ghost has decided to reveal himself to guests for the first time since his arrival was announced at Destination D23 earlier this year.

For those who are not familiar with this reclusive resident, the Hatbox Ghost first appeared in the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland Park in 1969. In 2015, he reappeared in the attraction but had yet to show himself at the Magic Kingdom attraction — until now!

The Hatbox Ghost can be seen materializing next to the Endless Hallway, emerging through a cobalt blue glass-paned door under the cloak of night. Guests can witness him arranging his cart of hatboxes and luggage, leaving muddy footprints behind. Lit by the moon and the warm glow of a dim lantern, the Hatbox Ghost grimly grins as he takes fiendish delight in unnerving visitors with his heady parlor trick.

Disney Imagineers have been working hard to prepare the Mansion for his arrival, enhancing lighting and updating paint throughout the queue and attraction. But, they’re not the only ones who have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Hatbox Ghost. The 999 happy haunts of the Haunted Mansion are in high spirits, celebrating his appearance by being on their ghoulishly best behavior for this hauntingly grand affair.
