There is a loyal following of Disney fans for the beloved Haunted Mansion attraction. The idea of the Haunted Mansion varies at each Disney Park around the globe. From mansions to manors, this attraction is a favorite among many Disney guests.

As many Disney fans know, Disneyland Park in California offers a fun holiday overlay of the Haunted Mansion. Jack Skellington and his crew, from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas transform the Haunted Mansion. The overlay is complete with a real-life gingerbread house located in the Grand Hall.

This transformation causes the Haunted Mansion to close for a brief refurbishment. The Haunted Mansion closed for refurbishment from August 15th through September 1st and reopened on September 2, 2022, as Haunted Mansion Holiday. Each year a few new details are added. Guests can’t wait to enjoy this attraction each year to spot the new additions.

Disneyland first announced that the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay would end on January 8, 2023. A short closure would be in place to remove the overlay from this attraction. A new change on the Disneyland website now indicates that the holidays can be celebrated a bit longer.

The final day to enjoy the Haunted Mansion Holiday is now January 29, 2023. Haunted Mansion will be closed starting on January 30th with no reopening date set at this time.

This is great news for guests hoping to enjoy this overlay, but could also affect guests visiting Disneyland in February.

Sucks we planned our trip first week in February and when we leave it will be when it reopens

I just looked and I'm extremely upset. I planned around this too. I don't understand why so late with this last minute change, just do it next year later.

I am planning a trip the beginning of February and am disappointed that haunted mansion may potentially be closed. Indiana Jones I knew would be refurbished during that time but I thought haunted mansion would be reopened. Frustrated with the timing switch when I had specifically taken that into consideration while planning our trip.
