The Disney Treasure Cruise Ship Will Have a Haunted Mansion Bar

When the Disney Treasure sets off on its maiden voyage at the end of 2024, guests will get to do something many Disney fans have long wanted to do: have a drink in the Haunted Mansion. Or, at least, in a bar themed after the iconic ride from Disneyland and Disney World.

The Haunted Mansion Parlor promises a bar that drinks full and descends into the unmistakable vibe and aesthetic of the Haunted Mansion. Expect a new riff on the ride’s classic theme, as well as references both shocking and subtle to some of its characters and vignettes. A menu of unique cocktails will try to capture the flavor of the ride, while one-of-a-kind souvenirs will be available to remember your ghostly night at sea.

Disney revealed the Haunted Mansion Parlor in a post earlier today on the Disney Cruise Line’s news site, and released a round of first-look concept images through Entertainment Weekly. Those photos are now up on Disney’s news site, so we’ve included them below. It looks like it uses some of the same technology as the excellent Hyperspace Lounge Star Wars bar on the Disney Wish, namely a screen behind the bar that will let familiar ghosts from the Haunted Mansion appear. According to the press release, the Parlor will also have its own original storyline that will tie into the ride’s, and explain why and how some of these familiar haunts made it out to the middle of the ocean.

Here’s an idea of the kind of cocktails you can expect from this place: one as-yet-unnamed drink will be a margarita that arrives in a swirl of smoke and that has a special message that can only be read using a black light. Abracadabar, the excellent 1920s stage magic-themed bar at Walt Disney World’s Boardwalk, has a spicy drink called the Pepper’s Ghost, which is a well-known optical illusion used broadly throughout the Haunted Mansion; could that drink make its at-sea debut in the Parlor? We’ll find out when the Treasure launches next December.

It’ll have a lineup of non-alcoholic drinks, too, of course; these “Sympathetic Libations” (if you know you know) will have various creepy names and colors but absolutely no booze, a vital option for any top notch bar these days. And it’ll have its own line of collectibles based on the ride, including mugs you’ll only be able to get here.

Based on the concept art released by Disney today, the Parlor definitely captures that familiar Haunted Mansion atmosphere, that combination of the spooky and silly that has made it perhaps the most beloved ride at Disney’s theme parks. It even has a replica of the so-called “Donald Duck chair,” a piece of set-dressing from the attraction that looks a bit like a duck we all know and love but flattened out as if somebody had sat on him.

If you read our last look at the Disney Treasure, you might already know how deeply interested I am in drinking at this bar. As I wrote back in August, “If they’ve got a Haunted Mansion bar on this boat, I’d pretty much post up there the whole time I was on board. I’d be as much of an immovable fixture of that place as those dueling portraits are in the ride’s Grand Hall.” And now that the bar is confirmed, I will reiterate: if I get anywhere near the Treasure I will be closing this palace down every single night. It’ll be me and that tea-drinking mummy getting sloshed on the hard stuff every evening, just having the best time possible. Unless there’s also a Country Bear bar somewhere on this boat, in which case I’ll have to figure out how to spend as much time as possible in two different places.
