With spooky season right around the corner, we’ve been seeing a lot more Halloween inspired merchandise. In World of Disney in the Downtown Disney District, we spotted a Haunted Mansion chess set.
Haunted Mansion Light Up Chess Set – $99.99
On the front of the box is the Haunted Mansion logo. From the outside, you can see one of each chess piece.
The back of the box details the contents along with an image showing the full setup, so you can see how the pieces are intended to correspond with traditional chess. Along the sides, you can see images of some of the pieces.
They had a display board set up. The pawns are a mix of the iconic raven and the bat stanchions found in the queue. The board also features the Groundskeeper as the rook, the Headless Knight as the knight, the Hitchhiking Ghosts as the bishop, Madame Leota as the queen, and the Hatbox Ghost as the King.
The side of the board has intricate vines with gargoyles atop them. Next to the rightmost gargoyle is also the light switch for the board and a charger port.
The pieces are light blue and light pink and all translucent to allow some of the light to shine through.
Is it really the Haunted Mansion if you don’t have the hitchhiking ghosts? Luckily, they made the cut as one of the pieces in the set.
