    when does haunted mansion close for the holiday change over to nightmare before christmas. when is the last day it will be the regular attraction?

    Welcome to planDisney, Matthew!

    "'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems" that the wonderful Imagineers at Disney created the Haunted Mansion Holiday, "making one unique Holiday especially for you!" Originally debuting in 2001, the overlay proved extremely popular and has been delighting guests nearly every year since.

    Personally, I am a fan of both versions and am happy to experience either one. We know that the Halloween Season will be returning to the Disneyland Resort but they have not yet released the schedule for the Season yet. Last year, the Haunted Mansion closed on August 15, 2022 for its changeover to the Haunted Mansion Holiday and re-opened on September 2, 2022. I'll try to put in a good word for you with Sandy Claws that you get to experience the attraction before it closes! Keep up with the Disney Parks Blog and the Disneyland Daily Events Schedule to stay in the know about attraction closures.

    Fun Fact: The Haunted Mansion is the only attraction located in four different Lands across four different Disney Theme Parks. Also, did you know that the hitchhiking ghosts are named Ezra, Gus, and Phineas? 

    If you just can't get enough Haunted Mansion, I would recommend watching Muppets Haunted Mansion on Disney+. It's got that classic Muppets charm and Haunted Mansion lovers will laugh out loud at some of the references! Also, get hyped for the Haunted Mansion movie being released on July 28! The trailers look fantastic!

    Matthew, I hope that answer was helpful for you and that you have a fantastic visit to the Disneyland Resort this summer! If there is anything else that we can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask!

    “So hurry back, we would like your company.”

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
