Disneyland Halloween Trip Report: Pt. 4

At the Haunted Mansion, Jack and Sally were at nearby Magnolia Park, greeting guests. The Mansion was in its annual full-blown Skellington mode; even the Fastpass area was decorated for the season.

This was probably the coolest detail; the freshly escaped grave of Sparky from "Frankenweenie." This one should stay all year long; it's a keeper!

A little Faux-D® to shake things up this morning:

At night, The Mansion really shines:

In the elevator, this sweet little stained glass panel begins to change...

into this scary little creature; I wonder if he's organic?

The hallway changing portraits look better than ever; clear, bright, and colorful. You can see the other three on my website.

This band of creeps across from the portraits is another favorite detail of mine:

A few more favorite sights as you approach the loading queue:

I've bumped my knees many a time not paying attention to the safety bar in my doombuggy as I have been mesmerized by the hive of activity at the queue:

Taking the place of the raven, this little goon is featured throughout the ride:

My little organic salad monster up close and personal:

Lovely Leota, in all her floating glory:

I wouldn't mind having a slice of this Gingerbread house; it sure smelled fragrant in the ballroom:

What a festive table!

Lots of creepy little monsters and packages up in the attic:

The cemetery is always a favorite tableau of mine, regardless of the season:

Even the dead get ribbons in honor of the holidays:

Oogie ushers everyone out with a game of chance; I prefer him over Pat Sajak.

Little pop-up goons in the exit mirrors to scare the bejesus out of you:

And then a sweet goodbye from Sally & Santa:

Come back tomorrow for more Halloween at Disneyland photos.

I've ridden the Haunted Mansion since it's opening year and have to say I now enjoy the "holiday" version more. There's just something about it. Nice update!

Incredible on-ride photos as usual!
