Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is here! That means Haunted Mansion Holiday returns once again, and we’ve got a peek inside at two of the spooky surprises that await at this seasonal favorite.


This year’s gingerbread house is a towering house of cards constructed by some well-meaning, but kind of accident-prone gingerbread men.

Many of you have asked whether the recently reappeared Hatbox Ghost will be getting into the holiday spirit (see what I did there?) … and he is! Check him out, with a new hat for his collection.

Don’t miss Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort – now through November 1!


  • My wife and I will be at Disneyland during the week of Halloween and we’ve been hoping to plan out or week and make dining reservations, etc but the monthly calendar has been really slow to update. Any reason why it’s so behind? Dining reservations can be made at 60 days out, but the calendar is really only showing abut 30-40 days out, which makes it challenging as we can’t decide which park we’ll be in on which day. What gives?

  • Hi Erin,
    this is Felipe and I’d like to ask something: I wanted to know when do the Haunted Mansion Holidays begin and end please. If you can answe, thanks a lot!

  • Amazing! Perfect in both versions!

    Thanks to the imagineers and hat designers to keep him there.

  • Looks cool! I’ll have to wait until 2016. Saving now to make the trip from Down Under (Australia). Will visit Disneyland and Disney World and go to parties at both places. The best of both worlds. He He!!

  • Will the monkey bride still make an appearance as well?!

  • My favorite GINGERDREAD house ever!!!!

  • The Haunted Mansion has always been my favorite attraction. Is there any chance that Haunted Mansion Holiday will come to Walt Disney World as well in the near future? That would be amazing!

  • I was able to experience this last night and I must say that the pic does not do the gingerbread house justice. I thought it was so fun and it is so big!!! it is one of my favorites.

  • Now that’s awesome…

  • Nice! It’s cool that he will be around for the holiday version.
