    Follow the howls of the wolf to the special effects and ghostly gags of the Haunted Mansion, 999 happy haunts, but there's always room for one more! This popular attraction starts to line up outdoors under a canopy. The mansion itself is of the gothic style reminiscent of the 18th Century Hudson River Valley structures.

    Hatbox Ghost has materialized in the Haunted Mansion, so be sure to keep an eye out for him when you're riding the attraction!

    An interactive queue takes guests through a graveyard with gravestones and interactive crypts paying tribute to Imagineers involved in creation of the attraction. This area will help pass the time as the line can grow to be extremely long during peak seasons. For photos of the queue, click here. As you approach the mansion, butlers and maids (always in character) greet you at the door and escort you into the library (or stretching room, does the ceiling go up or does the floor go down?)

    Tip: Remember to watch the picture over the fireplace changing as you are entering the room.

    Guests move on to the awaiting Doom Buggies for their journey through the mansion. This ride tells the story of a Black Widow bride and her many husbands. The special effects are terrific, especially the duelers in the ballroom scene and the staircase scene. In typical Disney fashion, attention is paid to the finest details. You'll notice something different every time you go on this ride.

    While not seriously frightening, you may want to think twice about bringing very young kids on this one.

    Don't forget to check out the ghost horse hearse out front!

    Handicapped Accessibility: Guests must be able to transfer from wheelchairs.

    Fun Fact:  At Disneyland, the Haunted Mansion was completed by 1963, but the Imagineers couldn't decide what to do with the inside.  This delayed the opening of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland for several years (until 1969).
