Since Disneyland closed, a few projects have been taking place around the parks. Disney has been working on Avengers Campus, they’ve done some touch-ups to King Arthur Carrousel, and the Haunted Mansion underwent some spooky maintenance. And, we’re checking out the newly reopened Haunted Mansion and all the features you’ll want to keep an eye out for when you return!

Just be sure to bring your death certificate along with you before you explore!

Welcome BACK, foolish mortals!

So, what’s in store for your tour? Well, before you even make it inside, you’ll walk through the estate grounds which have been updated with some new dearly departed guests, well…pets. There is now an area filled with tombstones honoring the rabbits, dogs, and other pets of the 999 happy haunts that have passed away.

The graveyard is filled with…pets

And, there are even some more…interesting house pets buried in the garden, like pigs…

…and squirrels.

Someone really loved their squirrel

And, when you finally make it to the doors of the mansion, you’ll enter and be brought into the Stretching Room for the pre-show that is currently running!



As you head the rest of the way inside, you’ll want to be on the lookout for the new drapes, wallpaper, and carpets around the hallway leading to the buggies. And, before you head on your exclusive mansion tour via Doom Buggy, you’ll want to greet the returning “April to December” painting, who is back on the walls! The original Haunted Mansion picture changes from a beautiful young woman…

Hey, there!

…to a ghost with a corpse-like appearance.

Aging is rough, okay?

We rode the spooky attraction again the next day, and we were taken on a detour backstage!

Where are we going?

A Cast Member asked us if we were comfortable with stairs, and then we were taken to a secret hallway.

Secret hallway!

On this route, we skipped some of the line, but that also meant that we skipped the portrait room!


Luckily, portraits were in the hallway so we didn’t miss too much of the experience!


The rest of the ride is just as spooky as you’ll remember it and you might find yourself hurrying back for more! We’re continuing to make our way around Disneyland for its grand reopening, so tag along with us throughout the rest of the day for a look inside the parks! And, stay tuned with All Ears for the latest Disney news!
