Count Dracula is the ghost of a Transylvanian count who turned himself into a vampire before his mortal death. Eventually his material vampire form was killed and his ghost retired to the Haunted Mansion. His painting portrays him as a pale man with dark slicked back hair and rodent-like facial features. He wears a long black robe and holds a lantern in front of a stone chamber which contains his black coffin and a lit candle. ===In the rides===Much like the other Sinister 11 portraits, Dracula's portrait features the "staring-eyes" effect which was accomplished by painting pupils on ping-pong balls cut in half. The eyes were cut out and the balls were set behind the portrait and lit, giving guests the impression that they are moving.
- Concept art shows that Tokyo Disneyland's version of the Mansion wa sgoing to include a "Burial Crypt of Famous Villains" where his tomb would be seen next to Nero, Jack the Ripper, Bluebeard, Medusa, and Attila's. In the end, this was decided against.
- Like the Witch of Walpurgis, the Ogre, and the arsonist he was originally going to be a changing portrait but instead he wound up as one of the Sinister 11.
- While this was made clear in the original concept art, not all fans deduced that the vampire was none other than Dracula himself. Merchandise from the 1970's identified him as "Morris", and the Ghost Gallery links him with the Coffin Occupant, spinning the tale of a poor man who was led to believe he was turned into a vampire and willingly lay himself into a coffin, which Little Leota then nailed shut.
