According to The OC Register The Haunted Mansion will undergo a two-month-plus refurbishment in early 2020 after the venerable 50-year-old Disneyland dark ride finishes up its “The Nightmare Before Christmas”-themed seasonal holiday run.
The Haunted Mansion will undergo a scheduled refurbishment beginning Jan. 21 after the attraction’s holiday overlay is removed, Disneyland officials said.
The Haunted Mansion will return in spring after the interiors and exteriors are refreshed and some attraction mechanics are refurbished, Disneyland officials said.
Transforming the dark ride back to its traditional year-round mode typically takes one to two weeks. The longer 2020 renovation is expected to stretch until late March or April.
The work will include paint and trim on the interior and exterior of the attraction along with lighting and mechanical work inside the ride building. The renovated ride will look refreshed, but no visual changes are expected to be made to the attraction.
