Happy 51st birthday The Haunted Mansion. Even as this ride scared me as a kid, I still love it even to this day! We will meet again my ghoul friends! What would have happened if they kept the walk through idea, would it still be popular?#hauntedmansion #Disneyland pic.twitter.com/4eg6QGpkZu— 👻Hallowed💀Wager🎃Commissions Open~ (@Wager218) August 9, 2020

Forever in Your Debt
Happy 51st Birthday #HauntedMansion! I owe a lot to this classic attraction, my interest in ghosts and cute scary stuff, my career and appreciation of themed design. I’ve missed you this year and I’m excited to pass through your dusty halls again soon!— Natalie 👻✨🌲 (@nnmakes) August 9, 2020
Not the Same Without It
Happy 51st anniversary to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion! It’s one of the 2 rides where, if I know in advance that it’s closed for refurbishment, I literally *will not* go to the park. Because a Disneyland trip is just not the same without it!#hauntedmansion pic.twitter.com/OrBSEtBj2v— Stace (@SugarRushStace) August 9, 2020
