When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake, the spooks are coming for a swinging wake, to celebrate the Haunted Mansion’s 50th Anniversary at the Disneyland Park. 

On August 9th, the Happy Haunts are materializing to start the celebration. There will be special food and merchandise for this ghoulish occasion.  So dust off the cobwebs and close your eyes to listen to them shriek and harmonize. The Grim Grinning Ghosts would like your company – Boo!

We are very excited to celebrate the golden anniversary of this most beloved and spooky attraction. For so many guests, it marks that special transition from childhood spooks to adulthood enjoyment of a good ghost story. For us, it was no different. We went from dreading those doom buggies when we were younger to the Mansion making it to the top of our Must Ride list. For all who love the Haunted Mansion and the stories it provokes we hope you enjoy this celebration as much as we do.
