You may have recently heard that an all-new original Halloween special, “Muppets Haunted Mansion,” will debut exclusively on Disney+ starting Oct. 8. Check out the trailer for this funny and thrilling production featuring all of your favorite Muppets as you’ve never seen them before:

“Muppets Haunted Mansion” takes place on Halloween night, when Gonzo is challenged to spend one very daring night in the most grim grinning place on Earth … the Haunted Mansion. This marks the Muppets’ first-ever Halloween special and features three new original songs, “Rest In Peace,” “Life Hereafter” and “Tie The Knot Tango,” a star-studded Muppets cast, celebrity guest stars and special appearances, and frightful fun for the entire family.

But you don’t have to wait until Oct. 8 to celebrate the fun and excitement of this new special. If you are going to Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort before then, make sure to check out these spooky activities:

At Disneyland Resort:

Currently at the Magic Key Holder event at Disneyland park, Key Holders can find some fun photo opportunities. Starting Oct. 1, there will be additional photo opportunities near the Esplanade. Check out the uniquely themed Honda Ridgeline that is wrapped to resemble the wallpaper designs that were created especially for “Muppets Haunted Mansion.” Honda is the official vehicle of the Disneyland Resort.
