With Halloween this week, it’s time to get in the ghostly spirit. This week’s Limited Time Magic does just that.

At Walt Disney World from October 28 – November 1, guests will be able to have an eerie time at The Happy Haunted Horseshoe in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom. (Otherwise known throughout the rest of the year as The Diamond Horseshoe.) The hall has been redecorated for the holiday in a spooktacular manner.

From 11 am – 3 pm, guests are invited to join hostess Miss Betty Blue, as she presents some hauntingly good entertainment including the barbershop quartet, The Cadaver Dans, the piano playing Dearly Departed Stan, and magician Abner Cadaver. Guests will be able to grab a Halloween inspired treat, including a special cupcake.

Over at Disneyland, The Cadaver Dans will be sharing their terrorific tunes in front of The Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square. Performances will take place from October 28 – November 3. Check a Times Guide for exact show times.

This will be a frightfully good experience. Just make sure that one of these ghouls doesn’t follow you home.

Haunted Mansion all neat and pretty

by on September 21, 2007

First reports coming back from the refurbished Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom park are all positive. The wait time has been relatively bearable, somewhat in part to a newly installed awning that actually covers the width of the queue.

Other improvements include fully renewed sound systems (who knew Haunted Mansion had bass?) new lighting and some great new special FX. A warning for the folks with little ones: The new stretching room has loud thunder and the hanging body is blatantly clear. It scared some of the small fries on our recent visits, more then the old version did.

Haunted Mansion gets final touches

by on September 9, 2007

The Haunted Mansion ride at the Magic Kingdom is getting its final touches to reopen later this week at the Magic Kingdom.

A fresh coat of paint gives the Mansion a umm.. freshly worn look? Regardless, it looks the way it’s supposed to.

The canopy for the exterior queue should be reinstalled soon and the final signing-off of the attraction for occupancy should go as scheduled. We’re looking forward to riding the refurbished Haunted Mansion and bringing you all the ghastly details ASAP.

Haunted Mansion Refurbishment Details

by on July 25, 2007

Details are beginning to emerge about the Haunted Mansion’s refurbishment at the Magic Kingdom.

When the ride reopens in September, guests will be able to experience a whole new scene based on the idea of endless staircases sort of like the artwork of M.C. Escher. Additionally, the floating head of Madame Leota as well as the new bride from California’s Disneyland Resort will debut but in technologically updated forms. The whole ride system audio is being overhauled in this bi-coastal effort involving Imagineers from both Florida and California. As always, a thorough dusting of the attraction will occur prior to reopening.
