The second Haunted Mansion trading card featuring its characters and the Cast Members who brought them to life has been released at Disneyland Resort for Magic Key holders.
You can pick up the cards each week at Disneyana on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park.
Ghost Host & Paul Frees Haunted Mansion Trading Card
The second card in this four-card collection celebrates the one and only Ghost Host, voiced by Paul Frees, whose voice carries throughout the hallowed halls of the Mansion while riders are on their tour.
Each card in the collection is lenticular, and shows two different images depending on the angle of the card.
This card shows a scrap of the purple Haunted Mansion wallpaper with a giant white question mark, then changes to an artistic portrait of Frees.
The back of the card shares more information about Frees’ contribution to the Mansion as the Ghost Host, and also shares where else guests might recognize his iconic voice. Frees has also voiced Ludwig Von Drake, provides the voice of the auctioneer in Pirates of the Caribbean, and is the narrator in the former Adventure Thru Inner Space and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.
Haunted Mansion Trading Cards
The four cards will be available one at a time to Magic Key Holders at Disneyland Resort during the month of September. Each week, a new card is released, with a new Mansion character and Cast Member on it.
The Disneyland Magic Key Instagram page previously shared a video of the Madame Leota card changing to Eleanor Audley, who voiced Leota.
The complimentary cards are available during regular operating hours at Disneyana, now through September 28, on Mondays through Thursdays only. The first card in this collection was released last week, and featured Thurl Ravenscroft and his Singing Bust.
The Haunted Mansion
The Haunted Mansion has become one of Disney’s most iconic attractions since its opening at Disneyland in 1969 and on opening day at Walt Disney World in 1971. A clone of the Walt Disney World attraction opened at Tokyo Disneyland in 1983, and the ride has even served as the inspiration for a number of Disney attractions across the globe, including Phantom Manor and Mystic Manor.
The atmospheric ride strikes a delicate blend between funny and frightening that has charmed generations. The Disneyland version of the attraction received a major addition in 2015 when the Hatbox Ghost, an original effect removed from the ride due to technical difficulties, was re-added.
The Hatbox Ghost is due to debut at the Magic Kingdom version of the Haunted Mansion in late November as part of the larger refurbishment that provided an updated look for Madame Leota, but he was not present when the ride recently re-opened. The Hatbox Ghost will occupy the Endless Hallway in the Walt Disney World mansion.
Disneyland recently revealed that they would be expanding the grounds of their Haunted Mansion to include a new gift shop and gardens.
ColourPop Cosmetics just released a new makeup collection inspired by the live-action “Haunted Mansion” movie.
