The quintessential rides that just scream “Disney” can all be found in Magic Kingdom. Attractions such as “it’s a small world,” Peter Pan’s Flight, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean make up just some of the classics.

But undoubtedly, the most beloved classic attraction of Magic Kingdom is none other than the Haunted Mansion.

However, Guests were rudely interrupted during their visit last night as the ride abruptly stopped. The lights were turned on, and Cast Members walked around to unlock each and every Doom Buggy ride vehicle before escorting Guests off the ride.

The cause of the Haunted Mansion ride’s closure is unclear, and the attraction appears to be operating normally again.
