It’s a special treat to see what innovative additions the Disneyland Resort Entertainment team will add to Haunted Mansion Holiday in Disneyland park each season. This year I spoke with Senior Art Director Brian Sandahl, got a sneak peek at the spruced-up singing pumpkins and gained some insight into “little” Sally’s makeover before the attraction reopened for its 14th season of frightful fun.
Have you seen these animated updates at Haunted Mansion Holiday?
I love Sally’s animated face!
And the upgrades to the singing jack-o lanterns are great too.
The dimensional effects on the pumpkins are astounding. We went into the Mansion just a few weeks ago not expecting any changes from the year previous; you can imagine our surprise to see new pumpkin faces, and to see Little Sally’s lips moving! It’s those little bits of frightfully fun magic that make the Haunted Mansion Holiday so worth experiencing each year.
