    When will Matterhorn and haunted mansion re-open? Also is hyperspace mountain and space mountain the same ride?

    Hi friend! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    You've got a lot of great Attraction questions, and I'm happy to help out. A good place to begin your planning is the Daily Events Schedule. This is where you'll find the Entertainment, Parade, and Fireworks schedules as well as park hours. It's also where you can locate information on Attractions currently closed for refurbishment. You can change the date on the schedule to see what your park date roughly should look like. Schedules are subject to last-minute changes, however, and that can include the projected conclusion dates for refurbishments. I understand having your heart set on experiencing a particular Attraction, but the good news is there is always so much to explore!

    I took a look for you, and the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Fantasyland in Disneyland Park are supposed to reopen on May 3, 2024. That could change, but I suspect your upcoming park date won't be affected by the current refurbishment of this iconic Attraction. The Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square, however, could be a different story. There's no official word yet on when we can expect the Happy Haunts to start entertaining Guests again.

    It's one of my family's favorite Attractions, and we weren't able to hop in a Doom Buggy on our most recent trip. So, I understand if the possible closure of Haunted Mansion during your visit isn't the best news. I wish I had Madame Leota's crystal ball, so I could give you a firm reopening date. Instead, keep your eye on the Haunted Mansion page and follow the Disney Parks Blog for updates. Disney Parks Blog is the official news source for the parks, and they announced the current improvements last summer. They might very well announce its reopening!

    Hyperspace Mountain in Tomorrowland is my favorite part of Season of the Force, which also celebrates Star Wars through yummy food and beverage menu items, new merchandise, and Disneyland After Dark: Stars Wars Nite on select nights. Hyperspace Mountain is an Attraction overlay, which transforms the iconic Space Mountain through music and effects. It's the best overlay in my opinion. You don't want to miss it! Space Mountain in its usual form will return when Season of the Force concludes.

    Have a magical day.
