Disneyland’s beloved attraction, Haunted Mansion Holiday, will be bidding farewell on January 21st, 2024, as it concludes its seasonal run. The ride is set to undergo a refurbishment that will not only transform it back to its original version but also introduce additional changes. In this article, we will provide you with updates on the closing date and the upcoming expansion project.
Disneyland has exciting plans for the Haunted Mansion area, with construction scheduled to begin in January 2024. While the exact start date is yet to be confirmed, the expansion aims to enhance the guest experience by immersing them in an expanded outdoor queue with captivating theming elements. The queue will feature new gardens inspired by iconic characters like Master Gracey, Madame Leota, and the mysterious one-eyed cat. Guests can look forward to a water fountain, gazebo, statues, and beautifully landscaped surroundings.
New Retail Shop
Additionally, a new retail shop will be added next to the ride exit, located in the mansion’s carriage house. This shop promises to extend Madame Leota’s captivating presence beyond the eerie walls of the Haunted Mansion. While details remain under wraps, Disneyland hints at a future announcement that fans are sure to be “dying” to hear.
Enhancements to Plaza
Alongside the Haunted Mansion expansion, Disney has also announced enhancements to the plaza adjacent to Tiana’s Palace. While specific details about these enhancements have yet to be revealed, they are sure to contribute to the magical atmosphere of the park.
Although no specific timeframe or duration for the closure has been confirmed, sources indicate that it may be necessary to keep the attraction closed throughout the period between holiday seasons. This means that the regular Haunted Mansion experience could be closed until early 2025!
With the approaching closing date of Haunted Mansion Holiday, visitors to Disneyland have limited time to experience the enchanting holiday overlay. However, the upcoming refurbishment and expansion project promise an even more captivating and immersive experience for guests.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of the construction and provide further details about this exciting expansion. Be sure to check back on the DVC Shop blog as more details become available!
