A new Haunted Mansion wallpaper Loungefly drawstring bucket bag is available at Walt Disney World Resort amidst an influx of merchandise inspired by the classic attraction. We found the bag at Port of Entry in EPCOT.
Haunted Mansion Wallpaper Loungefly Drawstring Bucket Bag – $65
The bag is a sack style with a black drawstring top. The outside is inspired by the attraction’s purple and black wallpaper with hidden eyes. The eyes stand out in blue and also glow in the dark. A Disney Parks and Loungefly plaque is on one side of the bag.
There are black panels along the top that bend in when the bag is pulled shut.
Another metal plaque is inspired by the real oval-shaped Haunted Mansion sign outside the attraction.
It has a flat bottom so you can easily set it down.
It includes a strap made of a light blue chain. It has a black pleather section to sit on your shoulder.
The interior lining is also a ghostly blue. It’s striped, like the Haunted Mansion Cast Member costumes or the stretching room wallpaper, and features images of the ride’s sign.

The Haunted Mansion
The original version of The Haunted Mansion opened in 1969 at Disneyland as part of the New Orleans Square expansion. Two years later, it was an opening day attraction in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom. In 1983, it was an opening day attraction at Tokyo Disneyland.
Phantom Manor, a version of Haunted Mansion that has its own backstory, was an opening day attraction at Disneyland Paris (then Euro Disneyland).
At Hong Kong Disneyland, Mystic Manor is a completely different attraction that draws some inspiration from the original. It avoids references to the afterlife out of respect toward traditional Chinese cultural precedent.
New ‘Haunted Mansion’ Movie
The upcoming “Haunted Mansion” movie follows Gabbie (Rosario Dawson) and her 9-year-old son Travis (Chase Dillon), who move into a haunted house in New Orleans. Dawson’s character ends up getting help from a priest (Owen Wilson), a scientist-turned-failed-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a historian (Danny DeVito).
The film’s ghosts include Madame Leota (Jamie Lee Curtis), the Hatbox Ghost (Jared Leto), and the Bride, a.k.a. Constance Hatchaway. Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, and Hasan Minhaj make cameos, as seen in the newest trailer.
“Haunted Mansion” is directed by Justin Simien from a screenplay by Katie Dippold. It’s produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich. It will be in theaters on July 28.
Zillow shared a behind-the-scenes look at the various movie sets in a fictional “listing” for the haunted abode.
“Haunted Mansion” is the second attempt to adapt the ride into a film, following the poorly received 2003 “The Haunted Mansion” directed by Rob Minkoff and starring Eddie Murphy.
Guillermo del Toro had also developed a script for a new Haunted Mansion film, but it never came to fruition.
