Over forty years ago, 999 happy haunts took up residence in Disneyland at the personal invitation of Walt Disney himself, who built an elegant mansion and promised his ghostly guests creaking door and creaking floors, replete with hot and cold running chills. What better way to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this paranormal partnership than to offer this collection of Haunted Mansion memorabilia from its first open house to today'sÄincarnation?
