The two Spiders were removed characters from the Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom and who still appear in the Haunted Mansion of Tokyo Disneyland.

Description

The Spiders are very large (for spiders) and are orange-brown with striped legs and three spots on their backs. The design on their backs serves as a Hidden Mickey.

Appearances

Walt Disney World

The Haunted Mansion

The Spiders appeared in the Liberty Square Mansion in the area of the attraction which now holds the Endless Staircase. They would stay on their webs doing very little by only moving their legs and making clicking noises.

In the original incarnation of the attraction they would be shown alongside their prey, a man trapped within their web calling out and pleading for help from guests as they passed by. It is unknown when this figure was removed but the motive was supposedly due to the animatronic either being too scary, or looking too, "Stupid".

A similar spider to those from Walt Disney World once could be seen in a web in the load area for California's Haunted Mansion.

The Spiders in the Jungle Cruise

The Jungle Cruise

They are the exact same model of spider used in the Disney ride, "The Jungle Cruise" where they appear in the ruins of a Cambodian temple along the Mekong river.

Tokyo Disneyland

The Haunted Mansion

They appear in the exact same way in Tokyo Disneyland. Originally they appeared alongside a character they were alluded to have either killed or who they are preparing to kill but he was removed at some point leaving a large part of the the scene empty.

Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare

The Spiders remain in the mansion during Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare - Tokyo Disneyland's version of Haunted Mansion Holiday. They are accompanied by Oogie Boogie as the shadow on the moon at night and bugs in cages that shake in fear.

Other Appearances
