Hooked on Disney’s Haunted Mansion

by hookedonhouses on August 13, 2009

official-photo-disneyland-haunted-mansionWelcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. Today I’m hooked on Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, which celebrate its 40th anniversary this week. It first opened its spooky doors in August of 1969 and has been giving people the chills ever since. I’ve only been to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion once, but it was my favorite ride in the park–probably because it looked like a really cool antebellum manor, and I couldn’t wait to get inside!


My blog friend Derek told me about the anniversary and has even redesigned his blog this week to celebrate it (check it out: Derek M Design). He also gave me a link to Doom Buggies, a site devoted to The Haunted Mansion that’s a lot of fun (Doom Buggies are what you ride through the mansion in). Head over there for all the information on the celebration.

I’ve been to Disney World more than Disneyland, so the Haunted Mansion in Florida is the one that I have the most memories of. It’s more of a Gothic-style manor (the one at Tokyo Disneyland is almost identical to it):


They say there are “999 Happy Haunts” in the mansion, but there’s always room for one more [insert evil laughter here].

Has anyone been to the one at Disneyland Paris? I haven’t, but here’s what it looks like:

Arleen @ Seasons for All at Home August 13, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Hi Julia. Well it sure makes sense that, since you’re hooked on houses, that you’d be hooked on mansion! And a Disney mansion sure is a good choice. I’ve been to Disneyland several times and was sure to include the Haunted Mansion as a must-see attraction. I visited Disney World once but did not get to the Haunted Mansion. And the one in Paris? No, but I’d sure love to go! Fun post — thank you! ~Arleen

I absolutely ADORE Disney and his phenomenal vision…….no one could make a better haunted house than WALT! And he was such an amazing man to be able to instill that vision into the future generations that ran the company after him.

The ride got stopped in the darkest part of the Haunted Mansion in Disneyworld the last time I was there for a girls’ weekend. We sat there for a good ten minutes. I was totally freaked out! So glad I didn’t have kids then, b/c my 3 year old would be scarred for life. :)

Thanks for hosting!

I used to go every year as a kid…now we’re planning a trip in early December to take our kids. It will be interesting to see if the kiddo’s get spooked. Although…I think the scariest ride in Magic Kingdom is the Snow White ride (do they still have that)? I remember being terrified! lol

Things That Inspire August 13, 2009 at 9:17 pm

Although I grew up on the east coast and live in the eastern part of the country, I go to Disneyland almost every year and have only been to Disneyworld once! My kids love the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. It is like a familiar and comforting place that is a little bit scary at the same time – the perfect thing for kids who want to feel a little bit scared, but also want to feel safe too. Doesn’t that sum up the whole Disneyland experience?

Tracie ~ My Petite Maison August 13, 2009 at 9:53 pm

The Haunted Mansion has always been my favorite attraction at Disneyland as well. We used to run to that ride first and I just loved seeing the ballroom with all the ghosts dancing. I actually thought it would be wonderful to live there when I was a child (and maybe now too!). Love the creepy lady at the end… “Come back, come back, make sure to bring your death certificate”. I am so hooked on your blog, Julia!
Happy weekend! ~Tracie

Do you ever watch that show on TLC called “A Haunting”? I am always so sad that those big, old homes are haunted, because otherwise they’d be awesome homes for a family! Why can’t the haunted houses be crappy, little houses!?

It’s been so long since I went to Disney World that I remember the Haunted Mansion, but I don’t think we went on the ride. I was in 5th grade, so probably not.

I hope to take my daughter there someday.

The haunted Mansion is my favorite as well. We will be going this September, yeah!
When my son was about 5 we took him on that ride not really remembering how scary it could be especially for a little boy, he cried and cried — we felt so bad (not a great parenting moment!) This time he is almost 10 and will LOVE it I know.

greenie August 14, 2009 at 12:24 am

Went to the one in Disney World when I was a kid. LOVED it! I love Halloween, so I’m a fan of these haunted mansions. I’m torn though… I think my favorite ride in any amusement park has always been the log ride. Maybe they could make a Haunted Log Ride! :-) (Actually, I’d be surprised if someone hasn’t already thought that one up). The Paris House looks like the one from Psycho.

Diana@TheDevineHome August 14, 2009 at 12:42 am

Seriously, I was just at Disney World in April – HOW did I miss that beautiful haunted mansion? When I first saw the photo I thought it was one of their theme hotels! Yep, I’m blonde ;o)

Mom in High Heels August 14, 2009 at 3:12 am

I’ve been to the one in Paris! In fact, I’ve been 4 times (most recently in Nov 08) and every time we hit the haunted mansion or Phantom Manor as they call it. IMO, it is much spookier than the one in Florida, especially at night. It’s creepy going up the front porch at night. The PM is more like going into a house than the one in FL, which really feels more like a line for a ride. Also, Europeans are less concerned with making sure people know where to go in case of emergency so there aren’t a whole lot of neon exit signs to “break the magic.” This is also true of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride there. We find it odd that the ride is mostly in English. I would think it would be all in French, but it’s a weird mix of French and English, but mostly English.

We were at WDW in FL in June and they have redone the HM there and I like it less. They’ve changed the storyline to make it less of a tragic bride to a whole host of killer brides who apparently murder their husbands on their wedding day (at least that’s what I got out of it). Women’s lib, maybe? I don’t like it as well as I used to. You might also be interested to know that the PoC in Paris still has the male pirates chasing the women, like the one in FL used to have before some groups started protesting that it was sexist and they changed it to have the women chasing the pirates with rolling pins and brooms. Boo for political correctness in my Disney rides.

Hi Julia,
First of all I’m sorry about accidentally clicking enter when I was trying to clear the McLinky box to type in a new entry. I can’t figure out how to delete it. Is there any way it could stay clear as its default?

We’ve never made it over to the States to Disney World. I’m glad Mom in High heels enjoyed it; we’ve been put off by reports that the Paris one isn’t as good. I’d have been too scared to go in anyway; I’m one of those wimps who’d leap a mile and have a heart attack on the spot.

We were just in Disneyland a couple of months ago and loved the Haunted Mansion. We did get stuck in it for about 15 minutes, but those twirling cars are so comfy, we didn’t mind.
