Cast Members Make Mother of Gothic Baby Cry at Walt Disney World

Mother Reby Hardy and Gothic Baby Haunted Mansion experience Walt Disney World Florida

Walt Disney World Resort welcomed a new honorary member into the Haunted Mansion Caretaker Team.

The first thing Cast Members said upon seeing Gothic Baby was “You need to follow me like RIGHT NOW.” This is probably because TikTok’s Gothic Baby was dressed in a perfect replica of her own toddler-sized Haunted Mansion ride attendant costume. Obviously, it was adorable.

Gothic Baby is the star of her mother Reby Hardy’s TikTok account and they are huge Haunted Mansion fans. They even have their very own stretching room inside their house! On Gothic Baby’s first-ever trip to Disney World, she wore the Mansion Maid outfit like a pro, even with a Gothic Baby nametag identifying her as “ghost host.”

Cast Members were so impressed that they took her to a private entrance to the ride and “briefed her” on her first day of Maid duties. You can hear Hardy crying tears of joy in the background. Hardy admitted that she was taking inspiration from this part of the Disney Park for future home decor ideas.

Gothic Baby’s and her mother were treated to a completely private ride on Haunted Mansion. Keep in mind, this was Gothic Baby’s first EVER ride at Disney World. What a way to start!

We get to see Gothic Baby stone-faced, but enjoying the Doom Buggy. Magic Kingdom Cast Members later present her with her very own caretaker’s license. Gothic Baby even got to meet the ghost dog, who you can only see because of his leash and floating harness.

As a memento, Gothic baby picked out a Ghost Mickey plush, even though she wanted everything in the gift shop. Reby Hardy described it as the best first trip ever. These ladies are surely looking forward to Disney’s Haunted Mansion film starring Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tiffany Haddish, Jared Leto and more in theaters on July 28!

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
