With the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park closed for a grounds expansion, new themed walls have gone up around the attraction with lenticular art of the Mansion’s changing portraits.
Many of the walls feature art by Imagineer Marc Davis, who created the art found inside the Mansion’s portrait gallery. The paintings have a lenticular effect so that they seem innocent, but change into something more haunting. First up is Davis’ Medusa portrait. Straight on, she appears as a Grecian woman.
When you shift, much like when the lightning flashes on the attraction, Medusa is revealed.
Next is the Black Prince portrait. At first, he appears as a knight in battle.
The portrait then changes to a skeleton man riding a skeleton horse.
April-December, another portrait of a ghost that haunts the Mansion begins as a young woman with “April” written in the top right corner.
She then turns into a corrupting old woman with “December” written at the top right.
Finally, there is the Ghost Ship portrait, which is a ship sailing the sea by day.
But by night it has been struck by lightning and is destroyed.
Also on the walls are quotes from the Ghost Host that can be heard during the ride.
Three of the attraction’s crypts with puns can be found on one of the wall panels.
Guests are given the option to join in on the haunts by scanning a QR code that will send them to the Snapchat PhotoPass feature on the Disneyland app.
Concept art for the grounds expansion can be seen by guests walking past the Haunted Mansion.
