The Haunted Mansion is a popular attraction located in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The popular dark ride takes Guests through a mansion of haunted characters while riding aboard a Doom Buggy.

The spirited Haunted Mansion adventure will be 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 has come out and said they are aware of the complaints regarding the hanging scene in the Haunted Mansion attraction. Per a Los Angeles Times article:

Recently, some have called for the removal of a hanging scene in the Haunted Mansion, noting its association with suicide and lynchings.

Disney has heard those complaints, but for now, the scene will remain unchanged. “It’s been discussed for sure,” says Disney’s Michele Hobbs, who managed the Haunted Mansion refurbishment. “It’s definitely something that we’re thinking about.”
