Haunted Gingerbread House

From Halloween through the holiday season the Haunted Mansion is decked out in a "The Nightmare Before Christmas" motif for Haunted Mansion Holiday. One of the coolest highlights has got to be the haunted gingerbread house in the mansion's ballroom. 

It's been a fixture since 2001. This year's design, "Haunted Mansion Tombstone Cake," is six feet high and four feet wide. 

And for the first time ever the "house" will have animated projections. The projectors are such a new technology that there are only a few in the United States, and some are here at our very own Haunted Mansion!

It took three chefs, a team of electricians, engineers and designers to create the tasty (and creepy) "tombstone cake." And although the house looks decorated with candy, it's not. All the decorations are actually created from fondant and royal icing.

One of the Last Times Walt E. Disney was on Film

The footage you are about to see is bittersweet. It shows one of the last times Walt was on film enjoying his park. The day was July 24, 1966 (Walt died later that year).


Walt and New Orleans Mayor Victor Schiro officially opened New Orleans Square. It was the first time since opening day in 1955 that a new land had opened. It was also the only area at the park named after a real city. Guests enjoyed shopping, dining and music, and Pirates of the Caribbean opened the following year.
