Disneyland's Haunted Mansion to Undergo Spooky Expansion and Retail Revamp in 2024

Disneyland announced plans to expand the beloved Haunted Mansion attraction in 2024. The additions not only aim to enhance the immersive visitor experience but also deepen the lore of the Haunted Mansion.

The Haunted Mansion, steeped in mystery and local legend, traces its roots back to a prosperous sea captain who first erected the manor. The mansion's staff has faithfully maintained the spirit of the mansion, ensuring the grounds remain a cheerful haunting spot. The upcoming expansion will further explore this rich backstory, with the outdoor queue area set to be transformed with new gardens dedicated to characters like Master Gracey, Madame Leota, and the one-eyed cat.

Guests can expect the gardens to be adorned with unique features like water fountains, gazebos, and themed statuary, adding to the eerie charm of the surroundings. A new addition is a greenhouse where the mansion's groundskeepers presumably cultivate their peculiar plants, adding another layer to the mansion's mystique. Fear not, the pet cemetery and horse-drawn funeral hearse will continue to be a part of the mansion's landscape.

Disneyland Resort also revealed plans for a retail shop adjacent to the Haunted Mansion, where guests can commemorate their visit with themed merchandise. This new addition will be located near the exit of the attraction, making it a convenient stop for guests as they leave the Mansion's thrilling confines.

In terms of accessibility, the expansion project will see the introduction of a new elevator exit from the Haunted Mansion, specifically designed for guests with disabilities. Guests will no longer ride up the original stretching room elevator, making the attraction more accessible to all.

Construction on these exciting additions is set to commence in January 2024, likely during the transition from the Holiday to the regular Haunted Mansion. Disneyland Resort assures guests that the team is committed to minimizing any disruptions during this period.

Disneyland Resort continues to evolve and innovate, always striving to improve visitor experiences while retaining the magic that makes it such a beloved destination. This exciting new chapter in the Haunted Mansion's history is sure to add to Disneyland Resort's allure and keep guests coming back for more spectral adventures.
