Haunted Mansion

Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

Go for a gore-free ride through a world of 999 grinning ghosts. The spooky visual effects are astounding, but the scares are served up with a wink and lots of chuckles. Keep your eyes wide open (when you can). There’s so much delicious detail here that you’ll ride again and again. Look for the Hatbox Ghost, which was on the original ride very briefly and re-added in May 2015his head disappears and reappears in his hatbox. Just be sure to leave room in your two-to-three-person “doom buggy” for hitchhiking ghosts! May be too intense for young kids. Recently renovated—Madame Leota’s ball now “floats.” Look at the upper windows of the mansion in the evenings—is that a ghost? Visit http://www.doombuggies.com for more details. Starting September 15, 2017 and going through January 7, 2018, this attraction becomes the delightful Haunted Mansion Holiday with characters from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”—many fans love it. Medium waits.

Would have received a 10 if they didn't do the Halloween overlay. This is one of my favorite rides of all times.

This a must-ride, every time for me. It's so classic and embodies what Disney does right. Fun music, fun effects, a good story and theming. And it's not too scary for kids. Use your judgement, of course, but unless kids are super skittish, they should be fine on this attraction.

Some little ones might find this scary, but the rest of us enjoy the campiness of it all. Great animatronics and hologram of a hitch-hiking ghost.

The WDW version is slightly better, but still a great attraction.

I actually prefer the updated Disney World version slightly better
