The Haunted Mansion is one of the most iconic attractions at Disney theme parks – so much so that there are five versions of the attraction at different Disney theme parks worldwide. Since first opening at Disneyland in 1969, it’s held a special place in the hearts of thrill seekers and Disney enthusiasts alike. And so it’s no surprise that a great deal of planning and care went into creating the film adaptation to ensure that the experience fans hold so dear in the realm of the attraction was seamlessly translated to the “real world” as it exists on the big screen.

Enter New Orleans. With its deeply historical architecture and reputation for paranormal activity, the city of New Orleans provides the perfect backdrop for the all-star cast to transform the roughly ten-minute ride into a feature-length spectacle, full of twists, turns, laughs, scares, and­–of course–that signature Disney magic.

When it comes to the filming locations, none is more crucial than the haunted mansion itself. While much of the mansion’s interiors were created on soundstages, exterior shots of the mansion feature the stunning Garden District home known as The Buckner Mansion, which is located at 1410 Jackson Avenue.

Outside of the house, you can spot many iconic New Orleans locations throughout the film, from a jazz funeral held in Lafayette Cemetery No. 2 to an engagement in the middle of Jackson Square. Grab a drink like the characters do at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Tavern or Napoleon House, then stroll down Royal Street – the street LaKeith Stanfield’s Ben calls home.
