Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is now closed as the transformation into the hugely popular Haunted Mansion Holiday has begun for the year.

What’s Happening:

  • The Haunted Mansion in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square has closed once again, this time for it’s annual transformation into the popular seasonal offering, Haunted Mansion Holiday.
  • Each year since 2001, Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion welcomes Pumpkin King Jack Skellington into the halls of the legendary residence, inviting him to leave frightfully-festive touches inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
  • Favorite sights, sounds, and characters from the film like Sally, Oogie Boogie, and others are seen in the attraction, ready to wish guests “Season’s Screamings!”
  • Last month we got a special preview of this year’s gingerbread house, one piece of the attraction that changes every year over the last 20 years, with this year’s edition paying tribute to the houses of the past.
  • The seasonal overlay of the attraction first began in 2001, and has continued since with various little changes over the years, including the addition of Oogie Boogie at the attraction’s finale, an animatronic Sally looking towards Jack in the graveyard scene, and changes to the infamous stretch room with a more animated Jack at the scene’s climax.
  • Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is currently closed, and is expected to reopen as Haunted Mansion Holiday on September 3rd.
