It’s officially Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, and once again Jack Skellington has taken over the Haunted Mansion to create Haunted Mansion Holiday.
The holiday overlay at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is a must see! Each year the attraction closes down in late August/early September for 2-3 weeks, while the mansion is transformed into Jack Skellington and the Nightmare Before Christmas. And as a special treat, Jack and Sally have Meet and Greet appearances throughout the day!
You do not have to have seen the movie to love the decorated mansion!
Here are some fun facts Joe told me about Haunted Mansion Holiday:
More than 400 flickering candles create the Mansion’s eerie nighttime glow
More than 100 jack-o-lanterns illuminate the exterior
7,500 feet of fresh snow is used each year
At night, several guests have been able to spot Zero protecting the Mansion
