Something Seems Fishy About This Aquarium

When the original Haunted Mansion was being conceptualized at Disneyland, visionary Imagineer Rolly Crump proposed an intriguing “Museum of the Weird” exhibit. While many of Crump’s ideas manifested throughout the iconic attraction, a few remained unexplored – until now. One such concept was a haunting aquarium teeming with ghostly fish. Over five decades later, this long-shelved sketch has inspired a new generation of Disney Imagineers to create a modern “Aquarium with Ghost Fish” for the Haunted Mansion Parlor.

Seamlessly blending nostalgia with fresh lore, the eerie aquarium will intertwine with the enigmatic backstory of the parlor’s former seafaring owner. Tales passed down by The Captain’s loyal crew recount his final moments, heading to his parlor for a meal prepared by his betrothed. All that remained after their sudden disappearance was The Captain’s hat, found floating ominously in the aquarium’s depths. This chilling detail adds a haunting twist to the phrase “fish food.”

An Eerie Art Collection

The Haunted Mansion Parlor will showcase an unsettling portrait gallery depicting the wandering spirits that have taken up residence aboard the Disney Treasure. This collection pays homage to the iconic artworks adorning the original Haunted Mansion, replicating the distinctive styles employed by Disney’s Imagineers in 1969. However, the gallery will also incorporate cutting-edge technology, allowing these ghostly residents to entertain guests in eerily innovative ways.

The iconic Mariner portrait, originally conceived by the legendary Disney animator Marc Davis, has an eerie tale that spans decades. First gracing the halls of the original Haunted Mansion attraction, this haunting artwork later found its way to the versions at Walt Disney World Resort and Tokyo Disney Resort. Now, the Mariner’s ghostly saga will plunge into uncharted waters as he takes up residence in the Haunted Mansion Parlor aboard the Disney Treasure cruise ship.

This new chapter will pay homage to Marc Davis’ enduring legacy, allowing the Mariner to uphold the master animator’s indelible impact on Disney’s haunting attractions and lore. Seamlessly blending nostalgia with fresh storytelling, the Mariner’s presence in the Haunted Mansion Parlor promises to immerse guests in a chilling maritime mystery, weaving together Davis’ iconic artistry with the high seas adventures that await on this haunting new voyage.

The ill-fated couple’s fateful encounter began when The Captain received a distress call from another vessel at sea. Swiftly altering course to render aid, he instead discovered only wreckage and a lone survivor – a woman adrift amidst the debris. With her striking green eyes, chestnut tresses, and a golden key adorning her neck, it’s no wonder The Captain was instantly captivated by her beauty. The pair became inseparable, eventually becoming betrothed.
