This Weekend Is Your Last Chance to Ride Haunted Mansion Holiday

To see how Jack has wrecked our halls, please drag your bodies away from the walls.

Every year, Guests look forward to Disneyland Resort to transform for both Halloween and the holidays. The Parks get decorated, new food and beverage specialties, and some attractions even receive an overlay. One of those attractions is the iconic Haunted Mansion, which closes for several weeks at the end of summer, so it can be transformed into Haunted Mansion Holiday. The attraction is open to Guests from early September and closes when the holiday season ends.

If you have not had a chance to ride Haunted Mansion Holiday this year, this is your last weekend to do so. The last day of the holiday season at Disneyland Resort is January 9 — after that, Haunted Mansion Holiday will close and revert to the original Haunted Mansion. Festival of Holidays over at Disney California Adventure will also be ending on January 9.

Here is more information on the popular holiday overlay that happens every year and is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Pumpkin King Jack Skellington has been busy decorating the Haunted Mansion with frightfully festive touches inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. From table to top, the 2021 Haunted Mansion Gingerbread creation is the tallest gingerbread design, architecturally. Thank you, “Sandy Claws!”

Experience thrilling sights and seasonal surprises created by the citizens of Halloween Town. Sally, Oogie Boogie and other Nightmare nasties will be on hand to wish you “Season’s Screamings!”

The Haunted Mansion is not the only Disneyland Resort attraction to receive a special overlay for the holiday season. “it’s a small world” becomes “it’s a small world” Holiday each year and combines the classic “it’s a small world” song with some of your Christmas favorites. This year, “it’s a small world” Holiday will run through January 23, so you still have a few weeks left to experience that run ride.
