Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare


This is Tokyo Disneyland's holiday version of the Haunted Mansion. Their Mansion's exterior is very similar to Walt Disney World's. However, Walt Disney World does not do the holiday conversion on their attraction....not yet, anyway.

Below, is the clock that shows the standby wait time....and yes, it is showing a wait time of over one hundred minutes. The "Nightmare" version of Mansion is very popular in Tokyo. (Note the Christmas tree-shaped pumpkin vine behind the clock.)

The brick structure behind this scarecrow is not a part of the Mansion itself. It is actually next to the Mansion and is part of a crypt-themed area of the queue.


There are two "pumpkin snowmen" located just outside the entrance to the Mansion (one on either side of the queue.) Does anyone know if Anaheim has these snowmen in front of their Mansion? I know they have the pumpkin scarecrow.....I just don't remember the pumpkin snowmen.


My next several posts are going to cover the interior of the Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare, including full "ride-thru" coverage! To see the next installment, click on the "Newer Post" link below.

yup, same cast members! i knew they did that, but i just found it cool to see the comparison - they do a great job putting the same person into different roles! your blog is really great though, so many neat pictures!

Oh no, I guess I spoke too soon. Why would they acknowlege that Hanted Mansion is Hallowe'en related, then change their mansion to Christmas in October? Whatever's going on in Anaheim seems to be airborn...

Just wanted to say: no, I've never seen that pumpkin snowman at Disneyland in Anaheim. We have the jack o'lantern-headed scarecrow in front of the Haunted Mansion and a bunch of jack o'lanterns speared into the hillside behind it but no snowman.
