Disneyland Design: The Haunted Mansion

Greetings from California!

We’re having the best time ever :)

Today’s quick Disney Design post is about The Haunted Mansion.  It’s drenched in New Orleans spirit.  The description from the official Disneyland site is as follows:

You are hereby invited to a spirited tour via “buggy” of the home and estate of a prosperous yet departed sea captain whose elegant 19th-century mansion in the New Orleans Square was once the setting for some of the most prominent social gatherings this side of the Mississippi.

I love how New Orleans is a perfect blend of French and American design elements.

Lots of molding and wallpaper in the foyer.

Formal dining for formal “guests.”

And if you really can’t get enough Haunted Mansion, there is a replica home in Duluth, GA for sale for $873,000

    I LOVE CALIFORNIA DISNEY! Oh I want to go back right now…

    also, Aaron’s “timeless art of seduction” pose made my morning.

  • Gretchen

    Yay Disney!

    Tower of Terror.

    And I only live 20 minutes from the replica Haunted Mansion! How did I not know about this?!

    • Kenz

      Gretchen! Do a drive by of the replica!!! PLEASE!!!! And, Tower of Terror is so crazy. It makes me so scared. But the Tower of Terror in Disneyworld is cooler than the version at Disneyland. The elevator in d-world actually moves forward and to the sides. Not just up and down like in d-land.

  • Katja @ Shift Ctrl ART

    It’s so fun to think that you are so close to where I live right now. I can tell that you are having the best time in these pictures :) My favorite ride isn’t a ride because I don’t like rides at all, it’s Mickeys house. I love how there are no straight lines in that house and I would love to design one for him too. Wouldn’t that be a fun design challenge?

    • Kenz

      You should have told me in time so we could meet up for lunch! Next time in the neighborhood I’ll let you know :) I love Mickeys house too. So much fun design!

    • Kenz

      Also… Thank you for knowing Aaron was pulling a George Castanza right off the bat. YES!

  • Kenz
