The Haunted Mansion Reopens After Four Days of Unexpected Downtime at the Magic Kingdom

After four sad, grim-grinning-ghostless days of temporary closure at the Magic Kingdom, The Haunted Mansion has now reopened after closing due to undisclosed reasons.

Guests 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.

The attraction has reopened to substantial wait times, currently at 85 minutes at time of publishing.

Will you be taking a ride with the ghost host any time soon? Let us know in the comments. The original story regarding the initial closure is listed below:


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.

We were at Magic Kingdom on Tuesday March3rd for our last park day. We had a fast pass for Haunted Mansion and Splash Mountain. When we arrived we learned that BOTH were temporarily closed. Thankfully, Splash Mountain Opened back up midday. It did make a horribly long wait for fast pass users and even longer for standby. We got a multiple use pass for Haunted Mansion. We thought we could use it on 7DMT, but the fine print said we couldn’t. That really really sucked. Anyhow, My husband and I attended Disney Villains After Hours on Friday 2/28 and rode… Read more »
