Earlier this week we shared a behind-the-scenes look at the enhancements and updates coming to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. Disneyland President Ken Potrock took to Instagram yesterday to share more images and details!
Potrock shared images of Cast Members on the grounds at Haunted Mansion. His post reads:
“It’s exciting to see Cast Members back in Haunted Mansion along with the Ghost Host and other spirited residents. Earlier this week we unveiled enhancements in and around the estate; an exterior refresh, new stories in the pet cemetery and the return of an old favorite of mine – the “April to December” portrait. The Mansion looks frighteningly great! The countdown to our reopening is on… and we are dying to welcome you back!”
The “April to December” portrait is one of the Mansion’s original portraits and once again graces the hallway. Guests can see it as the step closer to boarding their doom buggy.
April to December was an original changing portrait that featured a beautiful muse with the world “April” written in the top right of her portrait. Upon the flashes of lightning in the hallway, April slowly began aging with each new month until she turns into a frightful old lady in December, hence the “April to December” name. The portrait was replaced in 2005 but is returning to its home.
