Creating the Magic of Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland Park

In celebration of the 13th season of Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland park, I set out to talk to some cast members whose jobs are to help Jack Skellington and his buddies take over the Haunted Mansion each year. Edward, Richard and Lindsey have worked a combined 32 spooktakular seasons creating the magic, and as you’ll see in this video, they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Check out more posts about Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort:


  • We got to see the Jack version 3 years ago. So much fun. Wish they would also do this at the Disney World location for all us fans of Jack.

  • I love Haunted Mansion Holiday! The new effects this year are fantastic. Thanks for this video.

  • This is my favorite thing in Disneyland during the holidays!!!! Thanks for letting us see the magic!!!!

  • My very favorite time of year! The holidays! And I just love this overlay, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear and do a little dance each time I get to see it! My husband and I will definitely keep coming!! LOVE these behind the scenes!

  • I wish there was a year-round Nightmare Before Christmas ride and a Halloween Town. Maybe they could build this for Disney California Adventure in the future? I don’t make it out to Disneyland very often and I prefer the original Haunted Mansion so that’s the one I want to experience when I am in California. The holiday overlay is nice and I understand lots of people love it, but I’m always disappointed when I don’t get to experience the original.
