According to a Disney Parks Blog interview with Steven Miller, series artist Casey Jones said: “We knew we couldn’t feature every single character from the attraction,” explained Casey. “So we selected a character from almost each of the different show scenes. This set gives us a strong foundation to build upon for a future Haunted Mansion series.”
The article reveals that the beautiful packaging for this series was designed by Thomas Scott with help from artist Dan Salgo. Thomas gave some insight into it’s creation, “We used the cover of the ‘The Story & Song from The Haunted Mansion’ vinyl album as inspiration for the packaging,” said Thomas. “We even used the unique ‘Haunted Mansion’ lettering found on that album as a nice tribute.”

We have waited along time for this series. What are your thoughts as we go into release weekend? Have the variants re-energized the passion for this set?

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • I think the variants are a great addition to this set. Also Casey’s quote almost makes it certain for another HM series to come out and that might explain why Ezra was excluded from this one.

  • My issue (and lack of enthusiasm) is how the designs all look similar. With the Pirates set, each one has their own feel and gives me instant recollections of the ride. Due to the ghost nature of the ride, maybe including other aspects of the mansion (like wallpaper, nearby props) could have helped give the designs uniqueness. And why they did so many ghosts that have a similar design and didn’t include the caretaker and dog to help give it variety is beyond me.

  • Hoping Haunted Mansion Series 2 will have a Madame Leota, the diver boy type globe would be perfect with her hair painted on the globe, and a floating tambourine and trumpet on the ears.
