    Hi there! I am going to magic kingdom on the 30th of November. I read online that the hatbox ghost will be installed on the haunted mansion at the end of November. Do you by any chance know the date of when it is happening? It’s my fav ride!!

    Gemma, welcome to planDisney!

    Haunted Mansion is the quintessential classic Disney ride. It occupies a very special place in the hearts of Disney theme park fans. It's the Halloween season and my family has some Haunted Mansion decorations inside and outside of our home. We like any opportunity to bring the magic of Disney into our day-to-day lives.

    Fun fact: Did you know that Haunted Mansion was originally supposed to be a walk-through attraction? 

    I am excited for this ride to be updated with the Hatbox Ghost. Guests will see him as they pass the Endless Hallway. We haven't been given an exact date for when this apparition will be appearing in Haunted Mansion, Gemma. All we know is that it'll be late November. Therefore, hopefully, the ride will be updated and open by the time you visit. Since I haven't heard of any delays, I would anticipate your wishes coming true. However, keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for any new information.

    I hope that's helpful, Gemma. Although there are 999 happy haunts in Haunted Mansion, there's always room for one more. The famous hitchhiking ghosts–Ezra, Gus, and Phineas–are ready and waiting for you to stop by.

    If you have any more questions, you know where to find us. Or in the words of Madame Leota, "Come baaaaaaack!"
