The municipal flag of New Orleans

New Orleans or as it was originally named La Nouveau Orléans is a city in the American state of Louisiana, and is often where the Haunted Mansion is located in various adaptations including the original ride, the comics, and the live-action film.



The city is the inspiration behind New Orleans Square which holds the original ride as well as locations such as Port Royal, Pirates of the Caribbean and Madame Leota's Vardo. It was also planned to hold the Museum of the Weird attraction which ultimately went unbuilt.
