The album was released in several different forms. The album was first released in 1964 in a white sleeve, with a second release in 1973 with an orange sleeve. In both versions, the first side contained 10 stories narrated by Laura Olsher, complete with sound effects. The second side then contained 10 sound effects meant for others to create their own stories. There was also a British release in 1974 which contained a completely redesigned cover. In 1976 Disney released a follow up album by the same name and 26 tracks, however it featured no haunted mansion specific content.

The covers of the American albums were decorated with an image painted with acrylics by Paul Wenzel which he created as concept art for the attraction The Haunted Mansion. The original was 37" x 39" and was purchased in auction in 2001 for $3,000 USD. The cover of the British release is decorated with an actual photo of the ride, and the 1976 album is simply a colored image of a haunted house, skeleton in a coffin, and ravens. On October 31st, 2011, just in time for Halloween, the album was released on iTunes.
