The Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary overlay was the short-lived retooling of the Disneyland theme park dark ride and ghost train The Haunted Mansion. On top of the Mansion's regular cast, two new characters were added to the Mansion, played not by animatronics but by live actors: the Hallway Knight, the Gossip Ghost. (Gus, the Hitchhiking Ghost, was also portrayed by an actor instead of the usual animatronic.)
It's been fifty years since the Haunted Mansion opened to the public, and if you dare to visit, you'll see that the Happy Haunts have decided to mark the occasion! Ethereal “50 years” sigils float in the Limbo Area and the Séance Room, the ghosts in the Ballroom have all donned party hats, Gus is speaking with the guests rather than hitchhiking with the others — and a few new faces have even joined the fun!
Behind the scenesEdit
This temporary overlay of the Haunted Mansion, part of the The Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary festivities, opened on August the 8th and was still available the next day.
