Will the Haunted Mansion change during Halloween?
“My sister and I will be going to Walt Disney World September 8th through the 15th. It will be my third time and her first at Walt Disney World and our first time being there with Halloween decorations up.”
“I’m wondering if the Haunted Mansion will be decorated for the Nightmare Before Christmas when we are there. Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction and I’m hoping it stays the same during Halloween season, but I would be pleasantly surprised if it did get an remake like it does at Disneyland.”

Danielle, it’s a good question. The Simple answer is no. They don’t change the Haunted Mansion at Halloween at Walt Disney World.
I know Disneyland does change their Haunted Mansion to the Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack Skellington, Sally, all of that is at Disneyland, but not at Walt Disney World.
Walt Disney World does spook things up for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, they do add some extras around the Haunted Mansion.
You might see Madam Leota, she’s the lady with the head in the ball, she might be sitting out in front of the Haunted Mansion. You never quite know what you’re going to see during the Halloween Party at the Haunted Mansion.
I love Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I love seeing everybody dressed up in costume, trick-or-treating on Main Street. The parade, the fireworks,
I don’t want to speak for this year because characters change but in the past couple of years, you have had Jack Skellington and Sally doing meet and greets during the Halloween party. If you’re at the Halloween party, you can meet them. The lines are very long for the meet and greets, but they are at the Halloween party, or they have been at the Halloween party. I imagine they’ll be there this year, you just never know until they actually start.
Dad’s Bottom Line
The bottom line is no, you’ll be happy, the Haunted Mansion will NOT be the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion during Halloween, but you will probably be able to see Jack and Sally.
