In the video, Rosario Dawson visits some of the attraction’s highlights, drawing attention to certain iconic rooms and elements of the attraction that movie go-ers will notice in the new Haunted Mansion (2023) film. She begins by entering the stretching room, and – spoiler alert! – it’s in the new movie.

Next, Rosario Dawson hops aboard a doom buggy as we join her to meet the happy haunts inhabiting the house. She starts by pointing out Madame Leota and calling out the performance of Jamie Lee Curtis, who portrays the medium. After singing the praises of Madame Leota, Rosario takes viewers to some of her favorite areas of the Haunted Mansion ride.

“The dining room is one of my favorite rooms that we film in,” she tells the camera as it captures clips of one of the most famous elements of the ride. She points out the portraits of the dueling brothers, who she tells us are in the film.

Rosario Dawson also warns us to watch out for the axe-wielding bride and confirms that the hitchhiking ghosts will also be in the movie. But the actress stops there, teasing any foolish mortals interested in the film to come out to theaters to see what other surprises could be in store for Disney Park fans.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
