Disney Extends Seasonal Overlay Dates at Haunted Mansion Holiday

Good news for fans of the Haunted Mansion Holiday: according to the Disney website, the seasonal overlay featuring characters from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) will remain at the classic attraction for at least another week!

Since 2001, Walt Disney Imagineering has been allowing Guests to venture not just into the gloomy spirit world of the Mansion, but also that of history’s favorite holiday stealer, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King. (That’s right… Step aside, Mr. Grinch!)

As we know, each year the Disneyland Resort decks out the New Orleans Square estate “for the hallow-days” with a combination of spooky and merry flair! The attraction overlay brings elements from the cult classic Tim Burton film and blends them with the beloved facets of the home for Happy Haunts Guests will remember from their regular tours of the manor.

As Disneyland Park describes it:

Take a tour of the eerie estate’s merry macabre makeover—and meet some real holidays spirits.

Of course, this overlay lasts for just a limited time; previously, Haunted Mansion Holiday had a closure date of January 9, 2023. However, the Disneyland website now lists the attraction as open until at least January 16!

It’s unclear why the decision has been made to extend daily operations for the seasonal holiday overlay, but we’re not complaining! All in all, this just allows fans more time to visit the world of Halloween before it goes away until next year.
