    Hello, I am travelling with my family in Aug to Disney World. One of our favorite attractions is the Haunted Mansion. It is currently covered in a scrim for an exterior refurb. Can you please tell me when the scrim is scheduled to come down ? Thank you !

    Hey, Ellen!

    Welcome, foolish mortal to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Haunted Mansion is my favorite attractions because those Grim Grinning Ghosts always come out to socialize. I love seeing my friends Phineas, Ezra and Gus trying to hitchhike their way out of the tomb.

    I am excited about your August trip but those 999 happy haunts may not be done renovating the outside of their ghastly retreat. There is no official information regarding when the scrim is coming down after they complete the "disquieting metamorphosis" on the outside of the mansion. Even though the attraction is being cared for on the outside you can be assured that there are still "wall-to-wall creeps and hot and cold running chills" inside..."shhh, listen."

    Disney Dad Tip: After you exit the Haunted Mansion make sure to stop inside Memento Mori for some eerie collectables. It's the best place to find all your favorite relics from Master Gracey's estate. Just beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts...they say one always follows you home from the Haunted Mansion

    Ellen, enjoy making many frightfully Magical Memories.
