The fan-favorite and incredibly popular Haunted Mansion will be closing soon. But fret not, Foolish Mortals! It’s reopening soon after.

The Haunted Mansion is unique. It would not be an overstatement to say that the ghoulish attraction is one of Disney fans’ most favored haunts. Found both at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida as well as in Disneyland Park in Disneyland Resort in Southern California, the attraction is so popular it’s seen unbelievable lines and crowds for Guests to have one chance to ride it.

For the holiday season, the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Resort transformed into Haunted Mansion Holiday, decked out with a Christmas overlay featuring a “The Nightmare Before Christmas” theme complete with “Sandy Claws” (i.e. Jack Skellington as Santa Claus). However, the holidays are indeed coming to an end as the Disney Park has finally announced the closing date for the Christmas overlay.

Journalist Scott Gustin took to Twitter to share the news:

As Gustin shared, Haunted Mansion Holiday will be open until January 29, 2023, and will close for refurbishment from  January 30, 2023, until February 9, 2023. All Disney Fanatics can enjoy these ghoulish affairs once again beginning February 10, 2023, when the attraction reopens as in its usual form.

Haunted Mansion is one of few attractions at Disney to get a holiday overlay. Others include “it’s a small world,” which also lights up in a holiday glow for the season.
