It’s a day to celebrate everyone’s favorite ghostly abode… today, April 13, 2019, is Haunted Mansion Day in the Magic Kingdom!
Today’s extra fun materializes in honor of the fact that The Haunted Mansion is the 13th attraction to have an on-ride photo available via Disney PhotoPass.
The chilling one-day only delights include special photo ops, a special snack, and extra spooktacular entertainment in the evening.
A special Midnight Fright Delight Browkie is available for $7.50 at the Liberty Square Ice Cream Cart.
It’s inspired, naturally, by the famous clock inside of the Haunted Mansion. It’s for today only!
The “Browkie” is a cookie-meets-brownie combo, topped with a chocolate fondant-like piece forming the base of the clock, while the clock’s face is created by half an almond macaron on the top, displaying the ominous 13th hour…
It’s actually pretty impressive how it comes together.
I’d kind of anticipated that it might be a bit tough or over-baked, but the brownie part in particular kept its classic dense, fudgy texture and taste while still remaining soft.
Since this is a one-day only treat, I do wonder if maybe we’ll see more “browkies” around in the future?
In addition to the on-ride attraction photo, more photopass fun is taking place right outside the Mansion! (Be sure to wear a MagicBand or MagicBand 2 icon in a MagicKeeper that’s linked to your Disney account while riding in your Doom Buggy within the attraction to preview the new on-ride photo.)
These one-day only photo-ops include different offerings in the day and night. Daytime shots near the ride’s exit include the Tomb Sweet Tomb photo op.
Oh, and “Beware of Hitchiking Ghosts!”
Why, hello, Hatbox Ghost!
The Hatbox Ghost photo op takes place in this area:
When the sun goes down, guests can pose with the caretaker’s lantern or be surrounded by spirited Mickey orbs.
The nighttime shots will take place outside of Memento Mori. Speaking of…
Stop by Memento Mori, the merchandise shop next to the Haunted Mansion, and “a ghost will follow you home” in whatever merchandise you choose!
Note that, even though this outdoor specialty display is out for today, these merchandise offerings are standard for the shop, so you will likely find lots of these available no matter when your trip takes place.
There is something special for today-only inside the shop, though, and that’s specialty pricing on a regular item.
The lenticular image “showing your spirited side” at Memento Mori is priced at $13.13 + tax for the 8-inch by 10-inch take home photo, just for today.
And don’t forget! This evening, you can catch the Cadaver Dans ghostly quartet performing in Liberty Square!
These offerings are all in celebration of the new on-ride attraction photo at Haunted Mansion, available through Disney PhotoPass. Disney also shares the following:
