Haunted Mansion

An Attraction in Disneyland

Last updated: November 22, 2023

This attraction is currently closed!
It is scheduled to re-open in Unknown.
At a Glance

The Haunted Mansion is a fun attraction more than a scary one. An ingenious preshow serves as a vehicle to deliver guests to the ride's boarding area, where they board "doom buggies" for a ride through the mansion's parlor, dining room, library, halls, and attic before descending to an uncommonly active graveyard. Disney employs almost every special effect in its repertoire in The Haunted Mansion, making it one of the most inventive and different of all Disney attractions. Be warned that some youngsters build a lot of anxiety concerning what they think they will see. The actual attraction scares almost nobody.

The Haunted Mansion is one of veteran Unofficial Guide writer Eve Zibart's favorite attractions. She warns:

Don't let the childishness of the old-fashioned Haunted Mansion put you off: this is one of the best attractions [in the park]. It's jam-packed with visual puns, special effects, hidden Mickeys, and really lovely Victorian-spooky sets. It's not scary, except in the sweetest of ways, but it will remind you of the days before ghost stories gave way to slasher flicks.

Each September, The Haunted Mansion substitutes a special holiday version of the attraction that runs through early January. Inspired by Tim Burton's 1993 stop-motion musical The Nightmare Before Christmas, the overlay features characters such as Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie cavorting among the familiar mansion haunts to songs from Danny Elfman's classic score. Everything from the outside facade, the signage, the stretch room pre-show, and the entire ride is decked out with Nightmare story. Started in 2001, it's been very popular with the Disneyland locals and first-time visitors alike. In overlay mode, it's an entirely different attraction, and definitely worth a look if you've only seen the original attraction. Be aware that the attraction will be closed for several weeks each January and September to install and remove the overlay.

Haunted Mansion is Disney at its best: another not-to-be-missed attraction. Because The Haunted Mansion is in an especially high-traffic corridor (between Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain), it stays busy all day. Try to see The Haunted Mansion before 11:30 a.m., after 9 p.m., or while a parade is in progress. In the evening, crowds for Fantasmic! gather in front of The Haunted Mansion, making it very difficult to access.
