We love the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland over Disney World. We especially love the holiday overlay with the Nightmare Before Christmas touches. The ride is dark with a lot to look at for sure. I do wish they look your photo like they do in the Disney World one though. This time we grabbed some holiday popcorn at the cart right outside the ride entrance and loved snacking while waiting. Popcorn had m&ms and mini marshmallows in it!

I love going through the Haunted Mansion, both in DisneyWorld and here in DisneyLand, and this ride never disappoints. It feels so cheesy and is a pretty short ride, but is entertaining and a fun ride. It's not very scary, even compared to its counterpart in Florida.

A classic Disney ride. You take a trip through a haunted house with ghosts, a trapped skeleton and other ghostly effects. Nothing great- as the ride has probably not be upgraded for a while. But still worth a visit

I liked the ride, it just felt shorter than the Disney world ride. Most other Disneyland rides felt longer and better themed except this one

Very tame ride, but like it because of the theme. It’s fun in a light hearted way, relax in the ride and take in the visual effects and animation which is amazing. No scary bits or big drops.

We went back to Disneyland as we often do for the Halloween update. Bummed out that they didn’t do the Space Mountain update this year as that is my favorite Halloween update.

But after that it has to be the Haunted Mansion’s Nightmare Before Christmas update. They revised it again and it is way worth revisiting. It looked like each room had an update including the foyer which I wasn’t expecting.

Go check it out!

I have always looked forward to this ride, not because it is scary or has big drops, but it is just fun. This was the first time I was ever able to see the Christmas treatment with Nightmare Before Christmas add ons. My kids liked the ride but probably thought I was a bit odd in wanting them to go on it before the lines got long. I will say that things can actually be scary for young kids. There was a little guy who screamed and lost it in the elevator and refused to go any further. Poor little guy had to go out a side exit with his dad. I will always hit this ride whenever in a Disney park. It will be closed January 10-20, 2022 to restore it to the usual non-holiday version.

We visited Disney in December, so the Haunted Mansion is re-imagined at this time in a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. Lots to see and I can’t imagine it would actually be scary to anyone but tiny toddlers, maybe. Classic ride and very worth experiencing!

Not a huge fan of this attraction but others absolutely love it. We went in October so it was also halloween themed. The cool thing about this one is that it looks like the room is extending above you. My view is, just go to every attraction you can in Disneyland - nothing really disappoints. It's always fascinating to see!

Opened in 1969, this is a Disney classic! Original plans called for it to be a walk-through attraction, but efficiency took precedence which is what you see today.

EXPERIENCE:
Being a Disney product, the exterior the mansion is well-kept with manicured lawns, looking like a stately manor somewhere in New Orleans. The tombstones in the graveyard are etched with the names of Disney Imagineers who designed the attraction.

After entering the mansion, your group is squeezed into a small room for a briefing. The doors close and a ghostly-toned narrative begins informing guests that they’re trapped and need to find their way out, though there aren’t any doors or windows. All of a sudden, the room seems to “stretch” as paintings on the walls get taller. You’re actually in a slow descending elevator which takes you to the loading zone below for the start of the ride.

The haunting room features a belt of “doom buggies” descending from an upper floor in which you get on while the belt is still moving (2 or 3 to a buggy) before being whisked away up another staircase.

The buggies can rotate 360° and automatically swivels toward scenes on both sides of the track. Keep in mind that this ride has been around since the 1970’s with special effects from that era, so don’t expect mind-boggling special effects. But, what they have isn’t bad and works well as the ride has to entertain folks of all ages. You’ll see “breathing” doors, a floating candelabra, things moving by invisible forces, a coffin lid being opened by a skeleton, a talking head inside of a crystal ball, ghostly figures dancing in a ballroom, talking busts, and an animatronic graveyard. The frosting on top happens toward the end of the ride. After passing by three hitchhikers, the buggies turn towards mirrors on the wall. A hologram of one of the three hitchhikers is projected into your buggy making it look like the ghost of the hitchhiker is right next to you. That freaked me out as a little kid but is quite entertaining as an adult, lol.

OVERALL:
Old school, cheesy fun. May it never die, buahaha!!
