Just when you thought you might have one too many Disney model kits, along come the Haunted Mansion Model Kit. We found this at the World of Disney in Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort. As the Ghost Host says, “There is always room for one more.”
Haunted Mansion Model Kit – $29.99
This Haunted Mansion Model Kit is a replica of the attraction that is found in New Orleans Square at the Disneyland Resort.
It contains 145 individual plastic pieces and is a near copy of the Disneyland attraction in Anaheim. It features many of the detail found at The Haunted Mansion, including the four imposing columns, ornate railing details, orange-bricked chimneys, and the cupola that is “the way out” of the house.
Disney Imagineer Ken Anderson studied New Orleans and old plantations before finally deciding on using the Shipley-Lydecker House in Baltimore, Maryland, as the inspiration for the attraction. He came up with a drawing of an antebellum manor with features from the Baltimore house, overgrown with weeds, dead trees, swarms of bats, and boarded doors and windows topped by a screeching cat as a weather vane.
Here are some other attraction model kits we found available for sale:
