From her Séance Circle, Madame Leota invites all the guests of the Haunted Mansion to become caretakers to one of its “999 Restless Spirits.” With a simple tap, and a ghostly giggle, Leota, as the head spiritualist, will channel your spirit to materialize for you. You will receive a “death certificate” that officiates your role of caretaker for a resident and happy haunt from the Haunted Mansion. Guests can choose from a selection of dearly departed souls, including Constance Hatchaway, Professor Phineas Plump, The Hatbox Ghost, among others.

You can also find commemorative items such as an ear hat, ornament, mug, magnet and even a toy replica of the doom buggy vehicle with glow and new sound features at Memento Mori. If you’re looking to complete your cadaverous look – keep an eye out for a PANDORA charm set (Available at Uptown Jewelers on August 8 & 9), ALEX AND ANI bracelet, light up headband and 50th anniversary apparel at this location.

At Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, you can find a Haunted-Mansion inspired Dooney & Bourke collection including a tote and cross body bag. And Passholders, the collection will have an exclusive satchel just for you!

And of course, there are also keepsakes for every type of collector. Check out Frontier Trading Post for the commemorative “day of” pin, mystery pin collection and a glow in the dark Madame Leota Funko Pop!

As part of the celebration, you can enjoy special Disney PhotoPass Magic Shots featuring your favorite Haunted Mansion residents that will be sure to put some fright in your fun!

Looking for a sweet treat while you’re enjoying all the frights? Make your way to the Haunted Mansion ice cream cart for the Host-A-Ghost chocolate cupcake made with a dark chocolate truffle filling, crispy pearls, buttercream icing, and milk chocolate decoration. Delicious enough to bring you back to life!

For guests of this special merchandise event at Liberty Square, all of these ghoulish goodies will be available for purchase at 7:45 a.m.! Guests will also have early access to the Haunted Mansion attraction at Liberty Square during this time. So hurry on over, we would like your company!

But, that’s not all! While all guests will have access to this merchandise starting with the special event on August 9, guests attending Disney Villain After Hours on August 8 will have access to certain items in advance. The Funko Pop, pins and Dooney & Bourke handbags will all release on the morning of August 9 and will not be available during Disney Villains After Hours.

Is this offering for one day only, or as supplies last? (Though these may mean the same thing, as we’ve seen in the past with Haunted Mansion LE merch.)

Is this “special merchandise event” a ticketed event? Do guests require a separate ticket or have to register? Or can guests just show up at the park gates (with paid park ticket) at 7:00 and be allowed to go to Liberty Square? I’m DYING to attend, but want to make sure I get the ticket or register if needed. Thanks!!!

Just walk in. They’ll have cast members directing traffic.

Does anyone know if the ferries will be running early tomorrow? I’m at Polynesian Village, bummed to miss the event at Disneyland, and excited to get a taste of the fun while Magic Kingdom…
