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.

Almost time to say goodbye to Oogie!

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.

  1. What now no ghost

  2. Now that is sad. Disney would rather change with politics vs bring all family generations together.

    Tsk tsk. Not in favor of this at all.

  3. Hater decision-makers
    Are becoming hateful ride wreckers,
    destroying anything loyal fans enjoy.
    There will be nothing left, at this rate
    Disneyland is doomed.
    They have ruined the entire visiting
    the parks as well…people expect the adventure of a lifetime as its always been…
    My parents had their honeymoon at the Disneyland Hotel…in 1966. I was 3 months in my mothers tummy then, it was in a way my first visit to Disneyland…back then it was a big big deal to just set foot on Disneyland property, then just as it’s a magical memory to set foot on the property still today…its the whole experience and meant to be the most memorable lifetime adventure to visit any day of the year, now we have blackout days, if families plan a package deal for a few bucks less, we have extreme entry costs no e tickets but we are left with closed indefinitely main attractions, dwindled down to hardly no rides to reflect upon what it was once all about.

    This was Mr. Walter Disney’s lifelong present for all of us, gifted to the future generations ahead.
    Simply to exist for everybody to enjoy the parks attractions, adventures, and rides…
    What a miserable mismanaged group of heads making savage choices, it’s disgusting to see this happen…who can save it now.

  4. I preferred the regular Haunted Mansion
