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.
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".
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.
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.
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.
Various spiders appear in the 2003 video game, some of which are orange and oversized, rather like the Man-Eating Spiders, though their appearance differs somewhat.
Disney Crossy Road
The spiders as they appeared in the cobweb scene are unlock able characters in the Haunted Mansion levels of this mobile-game.
- In Disneyland's Haunted Mansion there is a fake spider of normal proportions in the Great Hall where it disguises a crack in the glass used for the pepper's ghost effect
- A similar orange spider appeared in the ride Snow White's Scary Adventure which holds many connections to the Haunted Mansion as well as Phantom Manor.
- In Mystic Manor, a giant spider appears in a portrait within the estate by Charlton J. Taboret. The portrait shows the spider about to consume the small monkey Albert when he's caught within its web. This serves as a part of the attraction's backstory as this is how Lord Henry Mystic discovered Albert.
