Halloween Time is in full swing over at the Disneyland Resort, and today Mike was able to check out Haunted Mansion Holiday, including a look at the new gingerbread house for 2021, the Gingerbread Franken-House.

What’s Happening:

  • Haunted Mansion Holiday is back as part of Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, and Mike got to check out what was new, including a look at this year’s gingerbread house, Gingerbread Franken-House.

  • On Monday, a memorial wreath will be placed at the Haunted Mansion, with the phrase “Memento Merry,” remember to be merry, as a play on “memento mori.”

  • Back in July, Disney shared images of what the gingerbread house design would look like this year as designed by Tim Wollweber, associate art director for Disney Parks.
  • This year’s design pays homage to all previous houses to celebrate its 20th anniversary, bringing together favorite elements from the previous 19 houses.
  • Tim used Jack Skellington as inspiration designing the house, thinking that Jack would go down memory lane digging up the past at the graveyard to remember previous years and cobbling it up together.
