New Happy Haunts Materialize Exhibition Now at Disneyland Park
It’s a banner year of Disneyland’s beloved Haunted Mansion attraction which is celebrating 50 years of happy hauntings. Disneyland theme park has lots of frightfully fun ways to mark the occasion. One of our favorites is the new “Happy Haunted Materialize” exhibition taking place at the Disney Gallery on Main Street U.S.A.
This limited-time offering will provide Disneyland visitors with a behind-the-screams look into the concept state of the Haunted Mansion. There’s a special “ghoul-ery” where you’ll find early sketches and sculptures of the Haunted Mansion concept providing a behind-the-scenes look at how they evolved into the beloved attraction you experience today!
Designs featuring original ideas for the Haunted Mansion line the walls including concepts for the walk-through attraction that the Haunted Mansion was originally slated to be!
As you continue to explore the gallery, also be on the lookout for some fun ideas that didn’t make the cut but inspired the attraction that we love today! Among them are portraits originally designed for the Portrait Hallway in the attraction. They feature Dracula and Daphne from the Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo. In the center of the exhibit, you’ll also see the models for actual ghosts and ghouls used in the attraction to this day!
Fans of the Haunted Mansion also won’t want to miss your chance to mingle with the grim grinning ghosts during a special “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving” event. This birthday celebration will feature an appearance by Madame Leota, themed food and beverages and after-hours access to select attractions in New Orleans Square and Critter Country. You’ll also find special estate merchandise, photo opportunities, lively entertainment as well as dancers and performers from beyond the grave. Tickets are sill available and can be purchased here.
