    They do it partially to perform restorative maintenance on the classic stuff so it seems like a good thing overall

    They're aiming the wrong way. Replace everything with Eddie Murphy.

    It's also really fun and cute to see. Me and my wife got to go through it a couple of years ago, and it was a treat, especially for her (since she is a huge fan of the movie.)

    I'm actually surprised they held out as long as they did without spraying a more marketable facade all over the Haunted Mansion.

    I loved the original version ride, and I'm lukewarm at best towards TNBC. It was always the first ride I'd try to get on in the morning. When lines were thinned out because of a parade or mealtime, my family always wanted to go on Splash Mountain or Space Mountain again, but my first choice was always the Haunted Mansion. Even though I'm personally displeased by the change, in a way it's a good thing, as it's one more positive memory linking me to the Great Beast Disney that now only exists in the past. Every year that they meddle, I become more resistant to the nostalgia trap.

    In other news... holy shit, I was spoiled as a kid. We probably went to Disney World more than 20 times. Definitely got our money's worth out of those Florida Resident season passes.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan

    they only do the nightmare before christmas overlay at disneyland and even then only for like, two months or something

    if they ever permanently did anything to the haunted mansion, they'd probably have a riot, people love that fucking ride

    But it sucks. The part before the ride with the hidden elevator is the best of it.

    I've never been, do they replace it around Christmas or around Halloween

    That’s not really true. They’ve actually been shortening the time the ride goes down more and more because they’re not really doing much maintenance in that time period.

    Haunted Mansion was actually going under a large-scale refurbishment that started back in January (when they took the overlay out) when the parks shut down. It was very long overdue.

    Also the Disneyland version of the Haunted Mansion is superior so not having it for 4+ months out of the year (goes down late September, is HMH from October-December, switches back early January) is disappointing.

    'Haunted Mansion Holiday is bad, actually' is absolutely the minority opinion. People fucking love that shit. They would like it less if it were year-round but as a seasonal thing it is outstandingly popular.

    The Haunted Mansion is the best thing at Disneyland after Peter Pan’s Flight, but retakes the top spot because of the racism.

    Fuckin

    PP’s flight broke after I had waited in line 40 minutes and had about another 20 to go

    Haunted Mansion - closed
    PP - broke

    Excuse me, Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye exists, though Haunted Mansion is absolutely a top tier ride, and the Nightmare Before Christmas variant owns seasonal bones, so

    It's a god damn crime that The Haunted Mansion is Christmas themed on Halloween.

    And don't you dare tell me that Nightmare Before Christmas is a suitable Halloween movie. It begins with Halloween ending. At best it can be first viewed once you have finished your Halloween festivities.

    I think that a seasonal overlay is probably fun for nearby residents with annual passes! I expect that that's a huge reason they don't bother with it in the other parks. It's a trek for someone like me to go to one of these parks so if I went there and they had that stuff on the ride I'd be very grumpy!
