I was inside the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland park to document the attraction just before it reopened this year for Haunted Mansion Holiday, and I wanted to share my three favorite photos now that Halloween Time has begun at the Disneyland Resort.
Next time you ride Haunted Mansion Holiday, keep your eyes peeled for one of my favorite details: a little monkey bride. Here’s a little hint on where to look … it’s near a big pumpkin.
In the great ballroom stands the 14th Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house. I thought you would enjoy seeing it up close.
Just before you enter the graveyard scene, you will see the back of Pumpkin Mountain with giant snowflakes falling.
HA! It’s a “Ginger Dead Man”
Wow, this looks so incredible! I wish we got it down here in Florida, too!
It would be super cool to see an animated .gif of those doors opening and closing on that little gingerbread man. That house is quite the evil confection.
I’ve seen the monkey bride — not this year but in previous years! I think that many people believe that she is an urban myth of some kind, but she is really there!
This year’s gingerbread house concept is a bit more macabre than usual, I think. It’s slightly edgier than what we usually see in these gingerbread masterpieces!
