Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion Getting Grounds Expansion and Retail Shop in 2024

Artist concept of Haunted Mansion expansion retail experience

Is this haunted room actually stretching? More than a room is expanding at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. On Tuesday, the theme park announced that the stately grounds of the popular attraction will be extended to build on the story and lore of the Haunted Mansion and offer a new retail shop adjacent to the attraction exit.

At the heart of the project is an expanded queue, which will reportedly center around the story of the prosperous sea captain who built the mansion. The new experience will feature gardens inspired by the attraction characters Master Gracey, Madame Leota, and the one-eyed cat.

According to the Disney Parks Blog, “Each of the gardens will feature unique elements ranging from a water fountain and gazebo to themed statuary and landscaping. In fact, guests will be able to see a new greenhouse where the groundskeepers for the Haunted Mansion grow their plants.” Fans of the current attraction queue need not worry about losing their favorites to the updated experience. The pet cemetery and horse-drawn funeral hearse will continue to reside on the attraction’s grounds.

While details around the new retail experience were slim, Disney Parks did share that the new standalone shop will be themed as a carriage house belonging to Madame Leota. More details on this all-new retail location will be shared at a later date.

Construction on the new additions is slated to begin in January 2024.
