The Haunted Mansion Remains Closed After Three Days at the Magic Kingdom

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UPDATE: After three full days of temporary closure at the Magic Kingdom, The Haunted Mansion remains shuttered due to undisclosed reasons. Cast Members at the location stated that it is unlikely to reopen today as well.

Guests have stated that there was an issue with the Doom Buggy ride vehicles late Monday night, which eventually led to an evacuation and the subsequent closure.

Guest Relations Cast Members initially stated that the closure would last a total of three days, but it seems that the repair is delayed. Ride maintenance crews are working on getting the ride back up and running as quickly as possible for guests.

It seems the grim, grinning ghosts of the Magic Kingdom are refusing to come out and socialize, as the famed Haunted Mansion has been plagued with undisclosed technical issues since last night, when guests had to be evacuated from the ride.

The attraction experienced a delayed opening this morning at the Magic Kingdom, and by that, we mean it never opened. At time of publishing, The Haunted Mansion is listed as “Temporarily Closed” on My Disney Experience.

We spoke to Cast Members at the location this morning who informed us that the attraction went down last night and hasn’t been running since. The outlook seemed “grim”, they said, but upon talking to Guest Relations, the closure might take longer than we think. Guest Relations Cast Members stated that the closure would last a total of three days, although that all depends on how quickly ride maintenance crews can get the ride back up and running.

Guests with FastPasses for The Haunted Mansion will likely receive a Multiple Experience FastPass+ in the time that the attraction remains closed.

This would be a great time to throw a few photopass photographers in the standby queue and other exterior spots for unique photo ops.

They should decorate Florida one with nightmare before Christmas! Leave it that way!


When did the ride reopen? I thought it would be closed till late spring.
