Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion Transforms for Halloween

The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland has debuted its annual transformation for Halloween, and once again Jack Skellington has taken over to create Haunted Mansion Holiday. Our friends at the Disney Parks Blog recently spoke with technical director Joe Peters, who gave them a tour as his crew completed the final touches on the 18-day transformation.

•More than 100 jack-o-lanterns illuminate the exterior
•7,500 feet of fresh snow is used each year
•At night, several guests have been able to spot Zero protecting the Mansion
•All the iconic black ravens that appear throughout the original Haunted Mansion experience have been replaced by Vampire Teddies except for one – do you know which?
