Happy 45th anniversary to the Haunted Mansion
 
in Disneyland

The exterior of the Mansion had actually been built in 1962-1963, but work on the interior was first halted because of the New York World’s Fair. Disney designers could not decide on what to put inside, so guests were simply tantalized by the promise of an attraction to come. At one time, it was thought that there would be a walk-through attraction, but the advent of the Omnimover—the eventual “Doom Buggies”—won out as the attraction’s final transportation format.
