Welcome, my friends, to our Christmas delight. Come witness a ghoulishly glorious sight…

The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Resort will reopen its creaking doors today to welcome Guests once again to let them see what happens when two holidays collide. The attraction temporarily closed its doors on August 15 to deck the halls for its popular holiday overlay, and will reopen today, announcing the official start of the Halloween season celebrations at Disneyland Resort, including Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure.

For a limited time, The Haunted Mansion will welcome Guests into a new vision inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). Guests will be able to see Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws, Sally, Oogie Boogie, and even Zero, who will take over The Haunted Mansion at New Orleans Square for the 21st time since this holiday overlay began in 2001.

As of the publication of this article, at 8:30 am local time, Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion Holiday shows as temporarily closed on the official Disneyland app. However, it is almost sure that this information will be updated later today as the attraction officially reopens for Guests to enjoy, especially since the official Disneyland website states that the attraction will be open from 8 am to 12 am today.
