Disney World has recently seen changes to a popular attraction. Haunted Mansion had a short closure and Guests thought the Hatbox Ghost were being added. At D23 last year, Disney revealed that the Hatbox Ghosts are making their way over to Disney World for Guests to experience. During this short closure, Disney World said this closure was strictly for renovation. While the internet went wild hoping Disney was adding the Hatbox Ghosts.

When Haunted Mansion reopened, Guests were disappointed to find out the Hatbox Ghost was not added yet. WDWDreamfinder tweeted a photo of the update that was done to the Haunted Mansion.
