45 years of the Haunted Mansion by eRiQ
45 years of the Haunted Mansion
I can't believe I am actually OLDER than the Haunted Mansion (in Disneyland) !!!!
- I first went on the ride in 1977, then again in 1981.  Then years later in 2004 and then another 4 years later ( for the 4th time) with my son (who was as old as I was the first time). This photo is from that last time in 2008. In about 10 weeks time I will be there once again!

This week celebrates the opening 45 years ago .... Employee previews of the Mansion were held August 9, 10, and possibly the 11th, followed by "soft" openings on August 9 and 10 where limited numbers of park guests were allowed to ride. A "Midnight" Press Event was held on the evening of August 11. The mansion opened to all guests August 12, 1969. The public opening was announced in full-page newspaper ads, creating the anomaly of either two official openings or an advertised "soft" opening. The attraction was an immediate success, attracting record crowds and helping Disney recover from Walt's untimely death.
