As I stated back in Chapter 1 of this blog, after my first experience through the Haunted Mansion, it quickly became my favorite attraction. The theming immerses you in the three-act story of “999 happy ghosts.”
The Disneyland version opened in 1969, and I visited the park for the first time in 1970. The Walt Disney World version opened in 1971, the year before my fist visit to the Magic Kingdom in 1972. The Haunted Mansion is my quintessential Disney attraction.
Here is an interesting history of Disney’s Haunted Mansion.
