How To Decorate Like Disney’s Haunted Mansion for Halloween

Sharing is caring!

Happy October 1st! (This Halloween decorating idea is from a few years ago, but I’ve updated it for October 2020!) My kids really like for our house to look creepy for Halloween. They especially like decorating like the Haunted Mansion at Disney World or Disneyland. That ride is definitely a family favorite! I love decorating our home to resemble the Haunted Mansion and it’s really easy to do.

How To Decorate Like Disney’s Haunted Mansion for Halloween

It’s super easy and super cheap to decorate with this type of theme. You seriously cannot mess this one up. *wink*

You still have plenty of time before the little trick or treaters will be around telling jokes to get candy. I believe that the St. Louis Halloween jokes are just our own river city thing. Or perhaps it’s done elsewhere as well? I’ll have to ask around. Here in St. Louis kids have to tell a joke to the homeowner before they are given candy. My kids like to tell riddle type of jokes. They also love to see the spooky decorations around. Time to get going on the Halloween decorations!

You will definitely want to use decor that is slightly victorian and slightly spooky. I found these great skull wall frames a few years ago at Dollar Tree. (They are still available because I just saw them at the store today. Had to get some items to decorate for trunk-or-treat later tonight!)

I also found coordinating ribbon, skulls, webs, owl, etc. All at Dollar Tree! It’s definitely my go to store for all things Halloween. (Let’s be honest. It’s my go to place for all holiday decorating.)

I looped a ribbon at the top of each frame and hung ’em on the front doors.

Years later and we are still using those skull picture frames on the front doors!


Spider webs help create the Haunted Mansion look.

Skeletons everywhere…

You can never have too many skeletons. Get your skeletons HERE.

(Jack Skellington would also be perfect for this look and go perfectly with the Disney theme. He’s actually a fixture in the Haunted Mansion this time of year.)



Creepy picture frames and wall decor can also add to your inside decor.

One of my favorites on the Haunted Mansion ride is the dancing spirits. You can create a similar look with cheesecloth ghosts.

And of course you gotta add some Halloween lights! *wink*
