ANAHEIM, CA - DECEMBER 14: Disneyland's Haunted Mansion seen from Tarzan's Treehouse in Anaheim, California, on Thursday, Dec 14, 2017. The Haunted Mansion. It was originally conceived to look spooky and dilapidated on the outside, but Walt Disney didn't want anything shabby in his park, so that plan was discarded. Designers first thought they would build a walk-through attraction, but later added the "doom buggies" to the design to improve traffic flow.

Is Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion Actually Haunted?!

We are constantly seeing videos trying to prove how there are ghosts at Disneyland. I’ve always thought the only ghosts that are there are in the Haunted Mansion because well it would be the perfect place for them to hide! I mean think about it, this place is supposed to be kind of creepy.

Honestly nothing is more creepy than getting stuck on that ride as you’re going down and backwards. That’s happened to me once and I was honestly terrified because what if the ghosts we “see” are real? I know I think about these things a little too much, haha.

Well according to the Mercury News, it’s become a tradition to leave out a plate of shingle-shaped cookies for the “spirit” in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.

In 2001 when Disneyland introduced the “The Nightmare Before Christmas” overlay on the Haunted Mansion the pastry team would show up after installing the gingerbread house to find a shingle missing. One year they decided to leave out a plate of cookies for the ghost.

Since then they’ve left a plate of cookies out for the ghost because the ghost would eat off that plate and leave the gingerbread house alone.

This year the Haunted Mansion is celebrating 50 years. You can see the latest gingerbread house for Halloween Time now through Halloween.
