While none of the interior shots were filmed at the Haunted Mansion, the sets still contain references to the attraction.

  • The exterior can be seen on the invitation, with Mickey and Minnie standing in front of it.
  • The crystal ball room is a reference to the Séance Circle and Madame Leota
  • The characters pass by a brass bust - possibly a reference to the staring busts in the Library.
  • A Knight stands at the end of the hallway in one scene, much like the one near the Endless Hallway.
  • One of the stories and songs in the film is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The Headless Horseman was apart of one of Ken Anderson’s drafts for the Mansion.
  • Sam sees a face in the mirror - possibly a reference to the Hitchhiking Ghosts.
  • One of the ghost decorations is a Lonesome Ghost. One of the original drafts for the mansion featured the Lonesome Ghosts as integral characters.
  • The Magic Mirror, for all intents and purposes, is the Ghost Host for this film. Coincidentally, he’s played by Corey Burton, who would go onto play the Ghost Host in Haunted Mansion Holiday.

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out (x4)

When the crypt stones creak and the tombstones quake

Spooks come out for a swinging wake

Creepy creeps with eerie eyes

Start to shriek and harmonize

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

Flying ghosts in the firelight

Rising spooks on every side

Restless bones materialize

Eerie eyes in the night

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

So don’t close your eyes and try to hide

Or a silly spook may sit by your side

Dressed up in a strange disguise

They pretend to terrorize

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize
