There are many exciting updates going on at the Disneyland Resort ahead of its reopening on April 30. Anticipation is at an all-time high for fans waiting to return to the classic Haunted Mansion attraction, which we haven’t had the opportunity to experience (without a holiday overlay) in well over a year. The resort just recently announced some changes happening to this ghostly retreat, which even have Disneyland President Ken Potrock excited!
The Disneyland Resort President recently took to Instagram to express his enthusiasm when it comes to opening the Mansion doors again. He expressed:
It’s exciting to see Cast Members back in Haunted Mansion along with the Ghost Host and other spirited residents. Earlier this week we unveiled enhancements in and around the estate; an exterior refresh, new stories in the pet cemetery and the return of an old favorite of mine- the “April to December” portrait. The Mansion looks frighteningly great! The countdown to our reopening is on… and we are dying to welcome you back!
New Haunted Mansion Enhancements
And we have to admit, we’re dying to return! This fan-favorite attraction will have some new enhancements that Haunted Mansion fans will love! These details provided by the Disney Parks Blog include the following:
Upon your return to the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland park, you may discover the ghosts have been busy updating a few elements in and around the estate…
Outside, freshly landscaped details now adorn the site for dearly departed pets, representing their stories from beyond the grave.
Additionallu, Potrock spoke about his favorite piece of Mansion history making her grand return. The “April to December” portrait hasn’t been at Disneyland Park for a while. However, this portrait has remained at the Walt Disney World attraction, as well as the Tokyo Disneyland version. But, now, she will make her ghostly reappearance when Disneyland reopens at the end of April (so fitting!).
