First Look at Haunted Mansion Holiday’s 20th Anniversary Gingerbread House

Haunted Mansion Holiday is set to return to Disneyland Park this Halloween and Christmas season, and today we got a look at the new gingerbread house that will be featured in the attraction celebrating the 20th anniversary of the seasonal experience.

What’s Happening:

  • Last week, Disneyland Resort announced that they are bringing back the Halloween season (or is it Christmas?) with the 20th season of Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland Park running from Sept. 3 – October 31st.
  • The seasonal layover of the attraction, now in its 20th year, is inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, celebrating the fun collision of both Halloween and Christmas.
  • Every year, a new Gingerbread House is built and displayed in the attraction’s ballroom scene, centered on the table in the room. This year, as it’s the 20th anniversary, Disneyland is pulling out all the stops and has decided to pay homage to all the previous gingerbread houses see in the past with a single house.
