Celebrate 50 Years of The Haunted Mansion at the Disney Gallery

Share This!

Playful spooks can now be found in The Disney Gallery at Disneyland to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Haunted Mansion. With the “Happy Haunts Materialize” exhibit, Guests can get a more in depth look at what makes this attraction so spook-tacular.

The Disney Gallery is part of The Disneyland Story Presenting Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln attraction. When they step inside, Guests will be able to see displays that feature concept sketches and sculptures of the attraction and see and how it evolved into what we get to experience today. The gallery is filled with designs featuring original ideas for the Haunted Mansion, including concepts for the walk-through attraction that was the initial concept for the park.

Guests will also be able to come across art portraits that were originally designed for the Portrait Hallway that feature Dracula and Daphne from the Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo. Much like their counterparts in the attraction, these portraits were also designed to change appearance.

Located in the center of the exhibit, you can see the figures that were created as models for the actual ghosts and ghouls we see in the attraction today.

Of course as a reminder, Guests who would like to celebrate the 50th anniversary can do so with a special hard ticketed event in August called “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving”. More details of that event can be found here.

    Is there any word on how long this will hang around?
