Disney’s Haunted Mansion has been getting so many exciting announcements. With the release of Disney’s newest film Haunted Mansion (2023), inspired by the attraction, Disneyland and Disney World have reaped the benefits. As a part of the promotion for the film, Parks have gotten limited-time bites and sips, along with new merchandise. The newest addition has been the announcement of The Hatbox Ghost coming to Disney World.
Guests have enjoyed the releases and marketing for the film, but now Disney is celebrating Haunted Mansion for another reason. The anniversary of the iconic attraction is here, celebrating its 54th year. With celebration to be had, and as the excitement continues around The Hatbox Ghost, Disney is releasing yet another surprise!

The Hatbox Ghost Tiki Mug
This unique mug is a new limited edition materializing on August 9 at Disneyland Resort. The Hatbox Ghost Tiki Mug will be available for purchase only at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. This third edition mug can be served as an alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverage, which makes it more unique than previous mugs. “With a ghostly teal green color, black glaze and served with the specialty cocktail Cloaked Specter, Guests must be 21 or over to purchase the mug,” Disney Parks Blog writes.
As all limited-time merchandise has, Guests are limited to two mugs per person, and it is while supplies last.
Haunted Mansion 54th Anniversary
Haunted Mansion opened on August 9, 1969, in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park. The Hatbox Ghost was originally featured in the attraction but soon vanished, only to reappear again in 2015. With the release of The Hatbox Ghost coming to Disney World, it looks as though he may be appearing once again in the Parks. If you’re itching to view The Hatbox Ghost, fans can be seen now in Disney’s Haunted Mansion, which is out in theaters.
A fun fact, according to D23, “The first Halloween Tiki Mug, the Zombie head with the Green interior glaze, is based off Disney Legend Blaine Gibson’s original sculpt design of the Hatbox Ghost.”
Will you be grinning this August 9 with your very own Hatbox Ghost mug?
