Magic Key Holders Can Ride Haunted Mansion Holiday After Hours


Magic Key Holders in Southern California have a limited time opportunity to ride the Haunted Mansion Holiday after hours!

The fan-favorite ride undergoes a theme change every year. It transforms from the classic Haunted Mansion to a The Nightmare Before Christmas themed experience. Described as “two holidays colliding,” the ride makeover lasts from September to January, encompassing both Halloween and Christmas. 

Former AP holders also got the opportunity for after-hours rides on Haunted Mansion Holiday. It’s a wonderful treat for Magic Key Holders to return to, after the new program opened in August. 

The official Magic Key Instagram made the official announcement:

💀 We hope you’re prepared for what Jack has in store for you, Magic Key holders! Sandy Claws worked his magic and is inviting you to ride Haunted Mansion Holiday for an extra hour after closing every Monday-Thursday from 9/20 through 10/7. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy the 20th season of this merry makeover. Who’s in? 🖤

Must be in park prior to close. Valid admission and Park reservation required. Must show proof of Magic Key holder status upon entry. Subject to change or end without notice.

If you’re a Magic Key Holder in the parks between 9/20 to 10/07, take advantage of this limited opportunity to skip the lines and ride this fan-favorite after hours!
