Join “Ghost Host” Rolly Crump as You Open the Doors of Haunted Mansion!

Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination? Travel back with Disney Legend, Rolly Crump, for a feeling of foreboding at the Disneyland Resort Haunted Mansion. Check out the details and video below as shared by DisneyParksBlog!


Long before the Haunted Mansion was inhabited by a lively collection of 999 happy haunts, Disney Imagineers began materializing ideas for the attraction during the initial planning of Disneyland park. Disney Legend Rolly Crump joined an Imagineering design team working on early concepts for the attraction about 10 years before the doors of the Haunted Mansion creaked open in August 1969.

After Imagineers created new technologies for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, and the exterior of the Haunted Mansion was built, Rolly contributed hundreds of sketches he’d previously created for the attraction. These early sketches helped with the design of the attraction as we know it today, which is neither too scary nor too light-hearted.

Rolly recounts the beginnings of the Haunted Mansion in this video celebrating the attraction’s 51st anniversary. He will be your ghost host for rarely heard stories behind this classic attraction that is filled with stunning special effects, haunting show sets and ethereal music!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
