The opening day attraction, Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom, is one of the most iconic and popular attractions at Walt Disney World. Filled with grim grinning ghosts, singing busts, wall-to-wall creeps, hot and cold running chills, and of course, the Ghost Host, this Magic Kingdom ride draws in Guest after Guest as they visit the 999 happy haunts.

Now, according to a new permit filed by Walt Disney World Resort, it looks as though Haunted Mansion will soon receive some construction work.

Disney filed a permit a few days ago for the location of Haunted Mansion inside Magic Kingdom (1600 Magic Kingdom Drive). The permit is for “general construction” with New Horizon Construction Services.

Although not much other information is listed on the permit, it is clear that the Haunted Mansion attraction will receive some type of construction update in the near future. This could be anything from as small as ride or animatronic maintenance to something a bit bigger such as installing new elements.

Though, we do want to note that at the time of publication, Haunted Mansion is not set to close for refurbishment, and therefore, we suspect that whatever the permit was filed for has to do with minor work, such as fixing small mechanical errors.

Inside the Magic will update you as we get information regarding Haunted Mansion.

The spirited Haunted Mansion adventure is guided by the “disembodied voice of the Ghost Host” as he is your private tour guide “through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.” Beware of hitchhiking ghosts!

Disney World describes this attraction as:

The disembodied voice of the Ghost Host is your private guide through the cadaverous realm of an eerie haunted estate, home to ghosts, ghouls and supernatural surprises.

Glide past a casket-filled conservatory, Madame Leota’s chilling séance room and a ghostly graveyard of singing specters as you attempt to find your way out. Beware of hitchhikers—these phantom pranksters may follow you home.

Happy haunting!
