If you are a fan of the Haunted Mansion attraction, you surely cannot wait to see Muppets Haunted Mansion debut on Disney+!
The Haunted Mansion Halloween special will feature all of your favorite Muppets and celebrities joining in to bring all of the characters to life, from Constance Hatchaway to Madame Leota. For those who want more of a description on the special, Disney has provided a ghoulish synopsis:
“Muppets Haunted Mansion” takes place on Halloween night, when Gonzo is challenged to spend one very daring night in the most grim grinning place on Earth … the Haunted Mansion. This marks the Muppets’ first-ever Halloween special and features three new original songs, “Rest In Peace,” “Life Hereafter” and “Tie The Knot Tango,” a star-studded Muppets cast, celebrity guest stars and special appearances, and frightful fun for the entire family.
Did you know you do not need to wait until October 8 to celebrate? Both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are hosting celebrations of their own before the special is released.
Below are all of the festivities you can find and partake in at Disneyland Resort!
Currently at the Magic Key Holder event at Disneyland park, Key Holders can find some fun photo opportunities. Starting October 1, there will be additional photo opportunities near the Esplanade. Check out the uniquely themed Honda Ridgeline that is wrapped to resemble the wallpaper designs that were created especially for “Muppets Haunted Mansion.” Honda is the official vehicle of the Disneyland Resort.

Considering Halloween is in full swing at the Disney Parks, these new additions will be a great way for daytime Guests to indulge in the haunts! Because Boo Bash and Oogie Boogie Bash are both extra ticketed events, this will be an excellent way for Guests to get something extra at the theme parks before the events begin.
