Friday the 13th: Let Us In!

This slide is from December 1968; the Haunted Mansion is not yet open, and the people in the lower left-hand corner are busy reading the sign.

And for Friday the 13th, here’s one of the Mansion’s 13-Hour Clock:

For those of you who aren’t superstitious, here’s one of the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, also from December 1968.

Sadly enough, this attraction is now closed for an unknown period of time; HOPEFULLY the Tarzan overlay can be removed and it will be returned to its former glory. Pipe dream? Remember, dreams do come true...for more vintage & current Haunted Mansion photos, visit my regular website.

Disney should produce a nice (working) souvenir version of this clock!!!

Hey Major: I believe that for one of the HM events, Disney has produced a small version of the clock that was handed out to the guests who attended. They have popped up occasionally on ebay.

Believe you meant the top photo to be from December 1968 - instead of 69.

You are correct, anonymous—thanks for catching that!
