The Haunted Mansion


Description from PassPorter's Walt Disney World Guidebook:

Go for a gore-free ride through a world of 999 grinning ghosts in this popular attraction. The spooky visual effects are astounding, but the scares are served up with a wink and lots of chuckles. There’s a fun storyline, nifty special effects, and enough delicious detail here that you’ll ride again and again. Just be sure to leave room in your two- to three-person “doom buggy” for hitchhiking ghosts! A new interactive queue is great fun, but you can bypass it for a quicker wait. May be too intense for young kids (though Allie liked it, she was a bit scared even at 12). Transfer from wheelchair to ride. Visit http://www.doombuggies.com for more details. Allie’s KidTip: “Can you find the dog skeleton? Hint: It’s on a cliff in the graveyard.”

What PassPorter Readers Think of The Haunted Mansion (78 comments):

Our 7 year old found it scary, but everyone else enjoyed the macabre humor and the detail.

My son's absolute favorite attraction which he was terrified of as a young boy. Now we ride it several times in a row
Jack's mom gave this a rating of 10 on 07/22/2016 at 4:45:08 pm EDT

We love this ride. The outside que line is interactive and a lot of fun. It almost makes you forget your waiting in line. Leota's tomb stone before you go in is spooky. I like this version better than the Disneyland version. The footprints going up the wall are great. At the end I like how the make the effects interactive and do tricks in the mirror. We get a good laugh from it.

A classic Disney ride. Lots of fun and well worth going to see. Might be a little scary for the younger ones.
Espeon200 gave this a rating of 10 on 06/30/2016 at 2:07:55 pm EDT

The queue is fun, but hot in warm weather.
Horace Horsecollar gave this a rating of 10 on 06/30/2016 at 11:57:11 am EDT

A definite must do on every trip. Find some of the books on the history of this attraction will make it even more meaningful!
RandyF1979 gave this a rating of 9 on 06/26/2016 at 8:27:39 pm EDT

Love this ride. Very entertaining. I HATE the method of funneling all guests toward the ride. Needs to be a better system.

Can't get enough of this one!!

Another classic ride and another we all love.
TomiRocket gave this a rating of 9 on 06/24/2016 at 12:09:44 pm EDT

I have been riding this since I was a baby and now my kids love it just as much. Sure it's cheesy and a little spooky but you have to love it! They've added in some neat effects at the end as well that make it even more fun. Definitely a do.

I think it goes faster now than it did when I was a kid, which is too bad, as there is so much in the details. I love what they have done with the que.
MissyMouse70 gave this a rating of 10 on 06/18/2016 at 9:30:21 pm EDT

A family favourite. We've been on it 5 times in a row on a quiet park morning. Spookily good fun
MissyMouse70 gave this a rating of 10 on 06/18/2016 at 5:54:56 pm EDT

If you don't love this ride then just turn around and leave Disney World. This is a must see no matter what.

Best attraction at Magic Kingdom hands down

Another of my favorite classic rides. It is a must see every time we go to the Magic Kingdom.
Papa Jim gave this a rating of 10 on 06/17/2016 at 2:51:05 pm EDT

Another of my favourites from childhood. Even though the storyline has changed and been updated I still love it, and ride several times each trip.
chelynnah gave this a rating of 10 on 06/17/2016 at 1:12:04 pm EDT

You MUST ride this again and again and again! I find something new every time! Love the queue - so many things to interact with! Great photo ops! Also, when the parade is running is a great time to miss the lines. So see the parade one day and the next skip it and go right to the front of the line!
Missi gave this a rating of 9 on 06/17/2016 at 12:46:47 pm EDT

A Disney classic. Altough I have ridden this dozens of times I never cease to find something I have never seen before.

Love this ride, do it several times a trip. However, the part that stinks is the "queue" to actually get on the ride...it's a mass horde trying to get into a single file line. If they fixed that, definitely a 10!
loveariel gave this a rating of 8 on 06/10/2016 at 3:38:22 pm EDT

I've seen a lot of little kids who are terrified of the stretching room, but after that, the ride is enjoyable.

Fun, family ride. Not too scary.
oddboysmum gave this a rating of 9 on 06/04/2016 at 8:39:23 am EDT

One of the best rides in the park. Great queue that moves fairly fast, nice cool, long ride.

Love the ride, but the stretching room scares my kids out the chicken exit everytime I try to take them on it.
AeroScott gave this a rating of 9 on 06/03/2016 at 3:54:53 pm EDT

I am terrified of the dark, but this ride was definitely one of the best! I would do over and over just to see everything I missed, if I had the time.
