The Haunted Mansion Closing for Extensive Refurbishment at Disneyland in January 2020
It has been announced that The Haunted Mansion in Disneyland Park will be closing for a months-long refurbishment in 2020 after the classic attraction wraps up its season of the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay and a fabulous 50th Anniversary celebration.
According to the OC Register, The Haunted Mansion in Disneyland will undergo a two-month refurbishment in early 2020 as opposed to its usual two- to three- week refurbishment to switch over from Haunted Mansion Holiday. The overlay causes a lot of residual damage to the interior and exterior of the attraction, so after a few years, it’s necessary to close the attraction for a few months.
The refurb will begin starting January 21st and marks the third attraction at Disneyland to be going under for refurbishment in the coming year. Earlier this month, Snow White’s Scary Adventures was announced to be undergoing refurbishment in January as well.
January 20th will be the last day to ride Haunted Mansion Holiday, which is set to return for its 19th season in September 2020. The Haunted Mansion will return sometime in Spring 2020 with new paint and trim on the exterior, plus improved lighting and mechanical work on the inside of the attraction. No visual changes are planned during the refurbishment.
