The Disney Parks Blog shared more images of new products coming to the yet to be named Haunted Mansion merchandise location. The new location will replace the Yankee Trader and be a shop devoted entirely to The Haunted Mansion.
Per the blog:
The image shown [below] is part of the art for the yet-to-be-named location. Look carefully as you may see a familiar looking face in the artwork that is related to the shop’s storyline:
“Rumors have been whispered for years about the little shop that once was the abode of Madame Leota. While she disappeared many years ago, it has been said her visage appears now and then and her voice, carried on the breeze, is sometimes heard, humming a mournful tune.”
When asked about the cast members who will work at this shop, I was told:
“The shop staff is a friendly, if somewhat quiet, group. They go about their duties with a calm and reverent manner but with a knowing glint to their eyes. They are well aware that the locals view the shop with a sense of mystery but come in anyway, hoping to find the perfect memento or to possibly learn about their future or past.”
