Disney Treasure’s Haunted Mansion Parlor to feature a Rolly Crump Inspired Sculpture

Today, the Disney Treasure ship’s log on the Disney Parks Blog was updated with some news about the Haunted Mansion Parlor. A new sculpture, bound for the Haunted Mansion Parlor onboard the Disney Treasure, is being crafted at a dedicated Walt Disney Imagineering workshop at Walt Disney World Resort.

The mysterious bus is inspired and modeled in the image of the famed Disney Legend, Rolly Crump. The reveal on February 27th in the Disney Treasure ship’s log coincides with Rolly’s birthday as the world remembers him and his many contributions to Disney Parks.

Nicknamed “Rolly” by Walt Disney himself, during the early days of the company and played an integral role in designing the original Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Resort.

Six decades later, the Haunted Mansion Parlor will unlock the next chapter of the Haunted Mansion saga for Disney Cruise Line guests. The venue will be imbued with Crump’s unique brand of humor and is a proud continuation of his legacy, celebrating the weird and the fantastical.

Part of Rolly’s larger creative concept for a “Museum of the Weird” in the Haunted Mansion, his original vision included a character that appeared to be melting like a candle.

It was only fitting for the design for Rolly’s memorial bust to stem from his own ideas, which led to the sculpted drips on the side of his face and a memorial plaque that reads, “BROTHER ROLAND – FOREVER REVERED FOR EMBRACING THE WEIRD.”
