Attraction Closures

You have the best touring plans in place, and you are at the park for a rope drop only to discover that your top attractions are closed. Disney World rides close all the time. Severe weather, mechanical or technical malfunctions, and Guests doing the wrong thing can all shut an attraction down.

Oftentimes, the ride reopens when the weather passes or the issue gets fixed. However, sometimes it can also lead to a multi-day closure. Ride closures not only affect that attraction but create a ripple effect as well. Higher wait times can be seen at other park attractions as guests scramble to revamp their touring plans.

Unfortunately, one attraction is closed again today.

Haunted Mansion

Haunted Mansion is a beloved classic ride located at the Magic Kingdom. This dark ride takes you on spooky tour through a haunted house, complete with “grim grinning ghosts.” The Ghost Host takes you through a private, guided tour of the estate. Head past the conservatory, into the séance room, over the ballroom, and through the graveyard!

Do not worry, though! The Haunted Mansion is dark and contains some mildly frightening scenes, but there is no gore, the ghostly residents are friendly and the ride is slow-moving.

Haunted Mansion was an opening day attraction at Magic Kingdom. Disney fans absolutely love this ride – everything from the pre-show to the song to the spooky scary fun!

Unfortunately, Haunted Mansion failed to open yesterday, February 6, and today, February 7. It did not open at all yesterday, but we are hopeful it may reopen at some point today.

Over at Disneyland, Haunted Mansion is closed for a refurbishment to return the attraction back into its normal corruptible state after almost 6 months of the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay. No one on either coast is riding Haunted Mansion. What a bummer!

Haunted Mansion is currently down and has been since yesterday morning.

Are you at Magic Kingdom today? Are you hoping it opens? Let us know in the comments below and share this post with a friend who may also be there.

well there are several issues. First is that the rides are old and have not been properly maintained for several years now. This is all on Chapek as he was the President of Disney Park operations prior to being the failure CEO. Next due to the fact that many of the experienced maintenance staff retired during covid there is a lack of knowledge that is difficult to make up. Next some of the maintenance people went to work elsewhere when laid off and are not coming back. Finally, Iger is aa cheap as Chapek except he hides it better than Chapek did. If this was truly being run the proper way the lights would never be completely off in the parks as maintenance crews would be working overnight to prepare the park for the next day. This includes cleaning, restocking, painting, ride maintenance, construction work and other things that can interrupt or destroy the illusion for the guests. This is not just due to being cheap it also has to do with making more money with all the extra hard ticket events that go very late or early into the morning. The last item which ties this all together is that the rides are ran constantly for 12 to 16 hours each day with no "rest" time. This creates a lot of wear and tear that needs to be taken care but due to the previous items here isn't done now days. This all results in unscheduled downtime for Disney attractions at all of its parks. Disney has adopted the worse strategy in Maintenace commonly known as run till failure.

Every day there is one to several rides down per day. You never used to see all of these unscheduled ride closures, Why? It could be one or several rides in various parks. The lines are so long and LL and specific Genie+ hard to get, not easy to change as fast passes were and not easy to get refunds, Plus the fact of man times standing in line and then told to leave, esp. with younger children. I just don't see why we are seeing this so often. Do they not have enough cast members to take care of and maintain the rides?
