Good morning MW! This day in Disney history August 9th, 1969. The Haunted Mansion opens to the public! An attraction that was connected to several myths & urban legends. Since the facade had been up for nearly five years, rumors began making their way through schoolyards & across back fences. My favorite, a "test patron" had supposedly been literally "scared to death!" πŸ‘» Madame Leota, the medium in the sΓ©ance room & the tiny talking figure @ the end of the ride, is modeled after Imagineer Leota Toombs (also known as Leota Thomas). It was the first attraction developed & opened without Walt Disney (he had passed away two years before). What's YOUR favorite thing about HM?

Here's a story: A few months after the Mansion opened in 1969, it closed for a mysterious reason. People thought that it was so scary that someone actually was killed inside. Well actually, the floors of the stretching room where collecting mold and were damaged from a small leak from the water of the Rivers of America, thus, they had to replace the flooring. :) - BaseballMickey  8033.1 #12 11:33AM
Interesting!!! Thank you for sharing that BMCM!! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 12:59PM
The woman at the end, telling me to " hurry back.. and don't forget your DEATH certificate" love it! - erinten  539.9 #413 8:01AM
When the doom buggies come down the stairway before you get on, I've always wanted to ride it all the way around - rescueranger77  153.4 #2743 1:47PM
Mystery of the Hatbox ghost! :D. - CduckettC  8.8 #12587 7:47AM
Original cemetery - pikarich  6328.9 #22 7:58AM
The hidden one? - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 9:44AM
When I was a kid it closed for awhile for refurb. I remember hearing a rumor that it was too scary, and they had to make it more kid friendly. My favorite thing about HM is the singing statues in the cemetery. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 8:05AM
Really?! Did you notice anything that changed after? - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 9:46AM
I always wondered what they changed, if anything. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #92 11:30AM
my goodness! Up for 5 years!? That's a long time. As for my favorite part...maybe the attic and falling out of it. I wanna just walk around there and look at stuff - misschurro  7739.9 #13 8:27AM
Right?! It's no wonder so many stories were started about it. A DL promotion team dream come true I'm sure! Oh the anticipation! The attic is my favorite as well! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 10:15AM
Here is the original recording of the story of the Mansion starring a young Ron Howard. We now sell this on CD if you're interested: http://tinyurl.com/9z8xl3m - BaseballMickey  8033.1 #12 1:18PM

Those are really neat! I'd hang one in my house! Lol - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 9:45AM
My favorite is the wall papers throughout the mansion - maxinerenton  422.7 #559 7:58AM
I can't say that I've noticed it except for the hallway with all the doors. I'll make a point to look next time! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 10:13AM
That's also my favorite part! - angelle  8.7 #12750 10:46AM

They really are fascinating! πŸ‘€ - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 1:00PM
My favorite part is the "stetching room". I love the dialogue and the tight rope girl. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #471 8:16AM
Definitely the ball room - there's so much to look at in there. I always hope the ride either stops for a second or goes a little slower so I can see everything! Happy Birthday HM! - Oinker34  1543.2 #120 8:17AM
Sooo much going on in there! I always hope for that as well! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 8:41AM
Hitch hiker ghosts! - Foxyhawaiian  115.9 #3403 8:21AM
Neato!! πŸ‘ - nickb92  69.6 #4320 8:29AM
The hat box ghost was only in the attraction for a couple of days and was replaced by the wedding dress with the red beating heart in the attic scene. - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #608 8:38AM
Thanks for the informative post! 😁 - SquishyGlamazon  115.5 #3413 8:51AM

I love the anticipation of getting on the ride itself. Good morning every one. β˜€ - WishIWereThere  314.4 #884 9:00AM
I love the HM. The dinner scene is one of my favorite parts of the ride. Thanks for the post. - PrincessLeia  312.8 #894 9:00AM
Thanks Duchess. I always love this attraction but I especially love it during the holiday transformation and can't wait to experience it with Danie for her first time. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #182 9:18AM
I also love the story about the Imagineers setting all the props and animatronics on a motion sensor when they were in a warehouse during testing. When the janitor came in at nigh, everything came on and gave him a good scare. Imagineers said there was a broom in the middle of the floor the next morning and that individual never came back to work there again. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #182 9:21AM
What?!!! Danie hasn't seen the NBC version!!!! Oh my goodness how exciting! That was a fun story! I hang heard the one about the broom! Scary!! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 10:17AM
*hadnt heard - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 10:18AM
Yeah we're pretty excited, gonna be booking our trip very soon. We're just waiting to make sure she can get the days off. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #182 10:23AM
My favorite parts are the dialog and the music. - Twitterpated  278.5 #1141 9:19AM
Yay for you and your wonderful info!!! My favorite part about haunted mansion is the elevator!!! I feel super nerdy but I can recite the whole thing the ghost host says in the elevator!! πŸ˜„ - CourtyAstroBlisters  808.0 #248 9:23AM
I can too! Lol - angelle  8.7 #12750 10:48AM
Thanks girl! Me three! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 11:27AM
The haunting music during the beginning and the voice of Paul Frees. - Bo22  394.4 #606 9:26AM
I don't think I could pick just one favorite thing. I love it all from the que to the end. I really like as you travel in the hall way and see the doors moving and hear snarling. I hear that those are the ghosts of mw trolls trying to escape, but I am pretty sure that's just rumor :) - DownTheRabbitHole  310.2 #916 9:27AM
I like to recite the whole beginning intro and then scream when the lights go out. 😁 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #256 9:34AM
Me too! Especially with a elevator full of MWers! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 1:27PM
I love HM my favorite part is the ballroom and also love when they change it to NBC for the holidays:) thanks for the history lesson again Duchess - LoneRAYnger  4261.6 #38 9:36AM
🎢Laaaalalalalala, lalalala🎢 sooo excited! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 1:29PM
I was a senior in HS in the SFV. We ditched school and went to DL for it. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #222 9:39AM
that is a PERFECT excuse for ditching school. PLUS...you still remember that day so much better than you would have had you not gone, right? Can you share with us? - misschurro  7739.9 #13 9:41AM
I'd like to hear this too you rebel you! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 1:30PM
Thanks Duchess another great history class. ( hands you a apple) - BeagleBoy12  167.3 #2528 9:47AM
:D ::gives you an A+:: you're such a good student! Thanks for paying attention! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 1:31PM
My fav part still has to be the ballroom dancing ghosts. Ever since I was little they have fascinated me, and the NBC transformation only makes it better! - dccp  348.1 #722 9:50AM
Ever since I was little I would always look forward to see what ghost would sit next to me lol - annjay07  170.8 #2476 10:30AM
Me too - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 10:51AM
I always hope to stop in the cemetery before the singing heads :) - Squirtortue  311.1 #904 11:21AM
Can I say everything? If i have to pick 1, I'd have to go with the attic. I love the photos of the head-less grooms changing back and forth and all the detail in that room. - DisneyRose  247.7 #1452 11:33AM
I think "everything" is a totally acceptable answer! πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 6:50PM
I LOVEEE the dining room scene, and the hitch-hiking ghosts :D - MEHlanie_Mouse  1117.3 #176 1:09PM

I love the grave yard scene. There is so much to see and I love the music. I also love when they convert it to the Nightmare before Christmas. Then I love the dinning room scene. - PrincessAuroraMomma  600.6 #365 5:03PM
Thanks for posting this! My favorite is the Grim Grinning Ghosts song. "Where the crypt doors creek and the tombstones quake..." - Alicewhoareyou  2724.3 #55 8:05PM

Awesome post as always! My fave is the dining room, love the HM! πŸ‘» - MinnieMousewife  923.5 #214 9:08PM
My favorite is the dining room and ballroom when it's changed to NBC. I love the gingerbread smell. I was so happy when the doombuggies stopped for a minute or so in the dining room. - ima-pirateswife  846.2 #235 9:31PM
Great info as always! - madsdad  1868.2 #99 9:36PM
I love the part after you exit the attic, and are going backwards and are looking up at the spooky trees with the faces, and then the old man with the skinny dog! - MoreGumboPlease  231.6 #1659 9:51PM

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 7:03PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge.

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.7 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7586 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #521 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  183.5 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8056.8 #11 1:41PM
