The Haunted Mansion is a spooky tour of an ominous haunted house in
Liberty Square Magic Kingdom Theme Park, where a supernatural Ghost Host
introduces you to his closest 999 dearly-departed friends.
Don't worry—too much. While Haunted Mansion contains some mildly
frightening subject matter, there is no gore, the ghostly residents are
friendly and the experience is appropriate for all ages.
Enter the mysteriously well-maintained exterior of an 18th-century
mansion and find yourself in an ornate estate where anything can
happen—and often does. Walking past the entrance foyer and into the
ghostly portrait chamber, the air cools and the sense of dread begins to
grow. Suddenly, you realize that you are in a room with no windows and
Moving along, you board a "Doom Buggy" and begin your supernatural
journey. Your Ghost Host takes you through several dusty rooms, where
you can see eerie signs of ethereal awakening. Soon, you encounter the
mansion's resident medium, Madame Leota, who invokes the mansion's ghost
and ghouls to show themselves.
What follows has to be seen to not be believed, but suffice to say that
you've never before seen the dead so lively. The conclusion is
definitely more merry than scary, but the sight of wraiths and
skeletons—even of the kindest constitution—is something you're sure to
remember as long as you live.... and maybe a bit longer.
At the end of your tour, to help you remember your visit to the mansion,
a team of 3 cheery hitchhiking ghosts volunteer to follow you home. It's
no use trying to dissuade them; they're deadly serious about their duty.

The Haunted Mansion closed for
refurbishment on June 8, 2007 and reopened September 13, 2007. Changes to
the attraction during the refurbishment included the addition of a new audio
system for the Ghost Host that makes it seem as if the spirit is circling
above visitors' heads, new red, green, and gold wallpaper (like the paper at
Disneyland), and new stretching sound effects for the stretching room. The
gargoyles in the stretching room now whisper and emit child like giggles
after the stretching room sequence.
