It’s that time of the year again.
As you step into the grand hall of the Haunted Mansion every holiday season, you’ll immediately be drawn into the holiday spirit. The iconic ride is magically adorned with whimsical and slightly spooky Christmas decorations, setting the tone for the entire experience.
The Haunted Mansion Holiday experience, which, of course, features the Pumpkin King Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie as well, is a highlight for many fans when it arrives each fall. Unfortunately, it is now time to say goodbye to these characters as the Haunted Mansion prepares to close on Monday.
Goodbye for Now
As the holiday season draws to a close, it is with a touch of sadness that Disney announces the end of the beloved Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay at the Disneyland Resort. This enchanting seasonal overlay, which has captured the hearts of guests from near and far, is preparing to bid farewell until the next Halloween time celebration.
The Haunted Mansion Holiday, a bewitching collaboration between Disney legend Tim Burton and the imaginative minds of Walt Disney Imagineering, has been a cherished tradition at Disneyland Park.
Since its debut, this mesmerizing holiday transformation has seamlessly blended the eerie charm of the Haunted Mansion with the whimsical enchantment of The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993).
As the holiday decor is carefully packed away, the familiar sights and sounds of the Haunted Mansion attraction will once again beckon guests to enter its grand doors.
A Not-so-Brief Closure
On January 22, 2024, the Disneyland Park Haunted Mansion will close as the ride is returned to its regular look at status. As of now, the Disneyland Resort calendar has not revealed when the ride will return. Hopefully, this process is speedy, and guests can expect to experience this attraction as soon as possible,
While the festive holiday overlay may be bidding adieu, for now, we eagerly anticipate its return in the years to come. Each season, as the holiday magic descends upon the Disneyland Resort, the Haunted Mansion Holiday emerges from the shadows, transforming into a spellbinding fusion of Halloween and Christmas.
Over at Walt Disney World Resort, the original ride will continue to delight fans during this temporary closure.
Until the next Haunted Mansion Holiday materializes, be sure to savor every chilling moment spent in this timeless attraction in its original form.
Whether it’s your first visit or you’re a seasoned guest, the Haunted Mansion continues to captivate and astound with its rich storytelling, stunning details, and eerie Disney Park ambiance. So, gather your courage and venture into the haunted realm, for an unforgettable encounter awaits those who dare to explore the legendary Disneyland Haunted Mansion.
