Haunted Mansion Memento Mori

Memento Mori, meaning Remember Death, opened on October 6, 2014 to huge crowds, and some of the most original Haunted Mansion merchandise I have ever seen.  For a small store, it packs in a lot of items and a few surprises too.  This video tour showcases some of the experience and what you can expect…

Memento Mori harkens back to the tradition of the 1800’s of taking portraits of the recently deceased to help in the grieving process and to remember the family members who have passed on.  In the “spirit” of that tradition, Memento Mori in the Magic Kingdom offers portrait seatings, but these pictures show a unique haunted visage.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
