The Limited Edition Haunted Mansion Hatbox Ghost tiki mug is set to make its debut at Disneyland Resort on the notable date of Wednesday, August 9th. This release coincides with the 54th Anniversary of the beloved Haunted Mansion attraction nestled within Disneyland.
Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar, a cherished establishment known for its unique offerings, proudly presents the 3rd Edition Hatbox Ghost tiki mug. This version boasts an ethereal teal green hue and is elegantly adorned with a black glaze. Accompanying this collector's piece is the choice of indulging in the specialty cocktail known as the "Cloaked Specter" or its non-alcoholic counterpart. It's important to note that only guests aged 21 and above are eligible to make this purchase.
Mark your calendars as the new Hatbox Ghost tiki mug will be attainable exclusively at Trader Sam's starting from 11:30 AM PT on the 9th of August. Each guest is entitled to acquire a maximum of two mugs per transaction, subject to availability. It's advised to act swiftly, as supplies are limited. For those considering parking their vehicles at the Disneyland Hotel, customary self-parking rates will be applicable. It's worth mentioning that validation for Disneyland Hotel parking is granted for a duration of 3 hours, specifically for dine-in patrons.
A fascinating historical tidbit accompanies this release. The original design for the Halloween Tiki Mug, featuring a Zombie head with a distinctive green interior glaze, draws inspiration from the masterful sculpting work of Disney Legend Blaine Gibson, who conceived the iconic Hatbox Ghost character. The release date of this Hatbox Ghost mug aligns with the anniversary of the Haunted Mansion's inauguration, which occurred on August 9, 1969, within New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park. Remarkably, the Hatbox Ghost was initially part of the Haunted Mansion attraction upon its grand unveiling. However, it mysteriously vanished from the scene, only to reemerge in 2015, perfectly timed for Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebration.
