Disneyland Haunted Mansion Old Postcard Shots

I have a post card booklet from Disneyland that is undated, but certainly screams 1970s if you ask me. It features scenes from the Haunted Mansion, a somewhat still new at the time attraction for the California park.

Since the Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite rides, and a favorite of so many others, I wanted to share some of these images. They are some of the nicest, clearest shots of the scenes inside the ride that I've seen in a long time. All images are © Walt Disney Productions.

Those owls are spooky. The guy on the left looks like the Ship Captain that is in some drawings that at one point going to be part of the ride's storyline. I doubt there is any connection there, at least aside from inside my head.

I actually have no memory of seeing these three in the ride. There is so much happening in that graveyard it is hard to give everything your attention. How cute is that teapot though!

Calm down! Don't lose your head over it. Ha ha. I'm lame.

This shot is such a classic. I like how these three have really grown in popularity as characters over the years.

I was fascinated by this scene when I was a child. Absolutely fascinated.

This is a nice shot also. Take a close look at the lady character dead center behind the chandelier. Does that not look like Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas? That's really weird.

Hope you enjoyed!
