Trivia

  • Appropriate to its name, New Orleans Square is divided up into a series of streets. These include Royal Street, Esplanade Street, Orleans Street, and Front Street.
    • The Haunted Mansion is located on Esplanade Street.
  • New Orleans Square was once planned to have had a mega-theme connecting the stories of the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Tom Sawyer's Island. The only true remnant of this plan is a bricked up oven-crypt marked, "1764" which homages the plan to have had a crypt in the Haunted Mansion connect to Tom Sawyer's Island.
  • There are many allusions to historic 19th century pirate and smuggler Jean Lafitte who himself was once intended to be a major factor in the proposed mega-theme.
    • In Pirates of the Caribbean, the loading zone for the attraction is a boat-dock labelled Laffite's Landing in the Blue Bayou. The name here is misspelled but the allusion remains.
    • There is an anchor in New Orleans Square which has a plaque reading,  "Said to be from a pirate ship commanded by Jean Lafitte in the battle of New Orleans – January 8, 1815 – It is also said that Lafitte’s privateering ships left a wake of blood from the mainland to Barataria Bay – But don’t believe everything you read".
    • There used to be a silver goods and custom engravings shop in the area called, Laffite's Silver Shop (although his name is once again misspelled). 
    • Tom Sawyer's Island there is an area called Lafitte's Tavern and the other in the now extinct Fort Wilderness where a display can be seen homaging the final battle of the war of 1812 (which was the battle Lafitte partook in).
    • There are newspaper clippings on Tom Sawyer's Island stating that Jean Lafitte used to use the island as his lair.
