A Half Century of Happy Haunts

Today is the 50th anniversary of the venerable and original Haunted Mansion.  One of the most beloved attractions in Disneyland history, the home of 999 Happy Haunts first appeared in 1963 as the elegant antebellum building, mysteriously alluding to a new and upcoming attraction of mystery.  It would take six more years before the ride would actually open, with a different format (Omnimover vs pedestrian walk-through).  But since then, those Grim Grinning Ghosts have entertained millions and inspired evolutions in Disney parks around the world. 

Happy birthday, Haunted Mansion! Here's to another 50 years of frightfully fun phantasms!
