If you’re a fan of Disney parks, there’s a good chance that you’re knowledgeable about park secrets and hidden rooms. So, here’s good news for you. Recently, a former teen idol revealed that there’s a secret inside the spookiest attraction of all, the Haunted Mansion.
Yes, the already creepy Haunted Mansion still has secrets left to be discovered. Aside from the tombstone tribute, hidden Mickeys, and a creepy corridor, a hidden room is also part of the secrets of the beloved attraction.
It all started back in 1970 when The Magical World of Disney featured the Haunted Mansion for a Halloween special. According to IMDB, the plot of the special went as follows:
The Osmond Brothers, accompanied by Kurt Russell and E.J. Peaker, come to Disneyland to perform at a show being held there. But Donny and Jay Osmond go off to explore the park. Worried that they will miss the performance, the rest of the cast go to try and retrieve them before it is too late. They also visit the then-newest Disneyland attraction at the time, the Haunted Mansion.
One of the Osmond brothers, Donny Osmond, recalled his experience while shooting for the TV special. He shared a throwback photo on Instagram of him and his brothers and wrote this caption:
“Even though Disneyland is closed right now due to COVID-19, I remember back to this week in 1970 when my brothers and I filmed “The Wonderful World of Disney – The Haunted Mansion” with the talented @official._.kurtrussell and E.J. Peaker in the Magic Kingdom.
All of us got to spend the entire day at Disneyland.
I was only 12 years old at the time and obviously still in school. There was a room on the second floor of The Haunted Mansion in a small corner that was not being used for the ride. That was where I had school with my teacher during filming.
I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person that can claim that The Haunted Mansion was my schoolhouse, and that’s why it is still my favorite ride in The Magic Kingdom.
Hopefully it will be safe for Disneyland and other entertainment venues to open soon.

With his Instagram post, Osmond just confirmed that there is a secret second-floor room in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion! But what is inside the hidden room?
Unfortunately, not much is known about the hidden room. However, Disneyland fans know that Walt Disney liked to create spaces that he can use for personal and professional activities. So, it’s safe to assume that this secret area in the Haunted Mansion may be one of these spaces.
