    From what I just read in another thread, HM typically closes after Labor Day. There is speculation that in honor of the Mansion's 40th anniversary, it may remain it usually creepy self forgoing the overlay.

    Re: when is the haunted mansion close in the fall??

    Looking at the current scheduled events, The BIG Haunted Mansion 40th Special Event (the last of the HM 40th events ) Is Being held on 9-9-09, and does include a ride through the Haunted Mansion.

    Then up next on the DL calendar is the beginning of Halloweentime, which begins on 10-2-09. At least that is the first of the dates for Mickey's Trick or Treat Party. But it would also signify that all Halloweentime events, decorations and attractions will be open at that time. So it is safe to say the Haunted Mansion Holiday also begins on 10-2-09. It's quite likely that the HM will be undergoing Jack's transformation from 9-10-09 thru 10-1-09, of course, as DL always says, schedules are subject to change.

    So if you want to experience the Haunted Mansion, best to avoid 9-10-09 thru 10-1-09.

    EDIT: per the link in Fantasmico!'s post below, Halloweentime begins on 9-25-09

    Halloween Time

    The Disneyland event Page indicates the celebration starts September 25, 2009. As Alladin pointed out, I'd go before Sept. 10.

    It has been reported that the Nightmare overlay won't happen this year, in honor of the 40th anniversary. However, annoyingly, Disney hasn't confirmed anything.

    Exactly. Right now all we have are rumors, conjecture and theory. But to be safe I'd assume that they will do the overlay, just in case.

    And here's the other thread where this was talked about recently.

    When does HMH typically begin, and Halloweentime start?

    All I can say is, it will vary this year, and there are a couple elements that figure into this.




    First off, as a previous person said, typically, Disney ends their summer season after labor day.


    However, this year is different. You will notice, that they are ending their "Summer Nightastic" schedule in late August.

    I strongly believe, (and take this from an Anaheim resident) that this has something to do with local Anaheim High schools. For some ungodly and strange reason, all Anaheim Union High School District schools go back to school on August 31st. This would leave me to believe that Disney is working with local schools, and ending their summer schedule early to accomodate them (since they've had quite a few disputes with Anaheim residents, businesses, and schools in the past.)

    And yes, there is also the 40th annniversary on 9-9-09.

    And I seem to vaguely remember having a conversation with a Guest Relations cast member a while back asking them about the anniversary, their scheduling, and the overlay. The person leaned towards them doing the overlay this year, after the special engagement is overwith, like going down for refurb on 9-14 and coming back up before October. But as Penguin made mention above, it is all speculation at this point, even with Disney themselves. They don't know their schedule until at least 1 to 2 months in advance.

    But feel free to contact 714-781-7290 everyday from 7am to 6pm to talk to a guest relations specialist and they might have some more information for you.

    That Halloween Time link (here) mentions the Haunted Mansion overlay and gives the start date of September 25th. I dunno how they're going to fit a four-week work schedule into a two-week turn around, but it appears that the Holiday version is planned for this year.

    Why is it that on every thread about the Haunted Mansion, people claim "speculation" about the overlay not happening this year?

    Not only is it happening, but Disney has it confirmed on their website.

    Seriously, it's been confirmed by DISNEY. Just because you think they don't have enough time or whatever doesn't mean it won't happen. Disney can work wonders sometimes. Any more threads on "Will HM Holiday appear in 2009?" need to be linked to the official Disney web page then promptly locked.

    Man, I am going on October 4th and I don't want my favorite attraction being closed and reopened as the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Since it is it's 40th anniversary, Disney should not change to the overlay and leave as the original to honor it.

    Unfortunately, HM Holiday pulls in a lot of people to the park to ride it. Not to mention, Disney is honoring it on 9-9-09 so they probably don't think doing away with HM Holiday is necessary to further honor the ride.

    Hopefully Haunted Mansion Holiday gets cut this year. It's blantently disrespectful of the attraction to be changed on its major anniversary. Don't worry, Haunted Mansion brings in plenty of people the way it is.

    Precisely, it's ridiculous that the Haunted Mansion is celebrating its 40th anniversary and they want to close it for a month right after the celebration date. Give HMH a rest this year and have it return in 2010 with some enhancements.

    Funny, one would think that 50 years is more of a major anniversary than a 40th.

    I feel that's irrelevant, the 40th anniversary is also a major anniversary and simply because it isn't the 50th doesn't make it anymore appropriate to close HM for a month, a few days after the celebration.
