BACKSTORY: Every “holiday” season since 2001 (from late September until just after New Year’s Day), the Mansion is transformed into “Haunted Mansion Holiday,” based on Tim Burton’s stop-motion animation classic, “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, and the rest of the gang take over the Haunted Mansion for approximately three months. It is the most popular holiday overlay that has been introduced to Disneyland
From the official Disneyland website:
Season's screamings, everyone! Jack Skellington and fiends have descended on the mansion to give it a macabre Christmas makeover. The results inspire fright and a dreadful delight as you float past things that go bump in the night.
Sally, Oogie Boogie, the Mayor and more fearsome faces from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas are dying to see you. Keep your eyes peeled for the ginger-dread house, blood-curdling pies and other gruesome goodies. Will you survive the holidays?
