When Will Close And Reopen Haunted Mansion For Holiday Makeover

Haunted Mansion Holiday

Haunted Mansion fans have a month to jump on the classic version of the Disneyland dark ride before the beloved 1969 attraction goes down for a few weeks to get ready for the Halloween and Christmas holiday seasons.

The Haunted Mansion will be closed for refurbishment from Aug. 16 to Sept. 2 to transform the dark ride with “The Nightmare Before Christmas” holiday overlay, according to the Disneyland website.

Aug. 15 will be the last day to ride the classic version of the Haunted Mansion in 2021. Haunted Mansion Holiday opens on Sept. 3 — the kickoff of Halloween Time at Disneyland, which runs through Oct. 31.

It’s a Small World usually goes down for its annual holiday overlay installation in late October and early November.

It typically takes Disneyland’s graveyard crew about a week to transform the Anaheim theme park from Halloween to Christmas decor. Christmas holiday festivities regularly run through the first week of January at the Merriest Place on Earth.

This year’s gingerbread house in the Haunted Mansion’s Grand Hall will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the seasonal holiday overlay with design elements that pay tribute to the previous 19 handmade houses.

We will have to wait and see how Disneyland pays tribute to the new “Muppets Haunted Mansion” holiday TV special coming to Disney+ this fall.

The Haunted Mansion underwent an extensive renovation during the COVID-19 closure of Disneyland that included new draperies, carpet, wallpaper and decor inside the attraction and fresh paint and plants on the exterior.

Crowds of mansion fanatics and snaking socially-distanced lines forced Disneyland to use a “secret” servants entrance when the ride returned to funnel riders directly into the portrait gallery — circumventing the Haunted Mansion’s famed stretching room elevators.

After a pandemic pause in 2020, Oogie Boogie Bash will once again return to Disney California Adventure on select nights from Sept. 9 through Oct. 31 during the Halloween season.
