How The Haunted Mansion Will Change When Disneyland Reopens

The 999 ghosts that call Disneyland 's Haunted Mansion home have been busy redecorating the classic dark ride attraction and the grounds surrounding the estate while the mortals were away during the yearlong coronavirus closure of the Anaheim theme park. Disneyland 's Haunted Mansion renovation brings new draperies, carpet, wallpaper and decor inside the attraction and fresh paint and plants on the exterior.

After Rethinking Racist Rides Disney Parks Extend Inclusion Push To Cast Members Add Adaptive Costumes

As part of its efforts to create a welcoming environment, Disney Parks announced today that it is adding inclusion as one of its core guiding principles. “We want our guests to see their own backgrounds and traditions reflected in ... their interactions with Disney,” said Josh D 'Amaro, chairman of Disney parks, experiences, and products, in a blog post introducing the initiative. “And we want our cast members - and future cast members - to feel a sense of belonging at work.” D

Walt Disney Once Accidentally Kidnapped President Richard Nixon

Walt Disney once accidentally kidnapped Richard Nixon from the Secret Service. Nixon visited Disneyland back in 1959 with his two daughters - and, of course, his security personnel - while he was vice president of the US.

Gurr recalled the story back in 2013 during an interview with The Walt Disney Museum,

Disneyland Adding A Second Place To Buy Alcohol In The Park

Disneyland knows we all need a tall, cool drink after a year of coronavirus closures and the Blue Bayou will joyously break with the long-standing prohibition on alcohol in the Anaheim theme park by offering beer, wine and cocktails when the restaurant reopens. The Blue Bayou will serve beer, sparkling wine and Hurricane cocktails when the New Orleans Square restaurant returns after Disneyland reopens. Disneyland will reopen on April 30 after a year-long coronavirus closure

Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride Once Had Real Human Bones And Maybe Still Does

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate 's afterlife for me. That 's probably not what the people who willed their remains to UCLA 's Medical Center imagined would be their final repose, but for some, it actually was. Maybe even still is - the jury is out on that. But one thing is absolutely certain: When Pirates of the Caribbean opened at Disneyland in 1967, all of the skeletons on the attraction were actual human bones. The ride was originally envisioned as a walk-through wax museum. Walt

The latest revised theme

Jungle Cruise Ride Is Finally Getting That Makeover Check Out The New Details

Back in January Disney Parks revealed official plans for a major redesign of the classic Jungle Cruise attraction. Previously, the attraction was a loose affiliation of animatronic sequences that were really only held together by the Jungle Cruise skipper and their endless stream of corny jokes. The new Jungle Cruise was described as a more cohesive story, but exactly what that story was we did not know, until now. Disney just dropped the first pieces of information about the new Jungle Cruise in the

How Rides Will Change Under COVID19 State Guidelines

Riding on Space Mountain, soaring on Dumbo the Flying Elephant or journeying into the Haunted Mansion will be a far different experience for Disneyland visitors in the age of coronavirus.

Disneyland and Disney California Adventure could look like ghost towns for those fortunate enough to nab tickets during the first few weeks after the Anaheim theme parks reopen in late April with strict attendance capacity limits.

California theme parks can reopen on April 1 provided the
