The overlaid attraction is then open to guests from late-September through early January before being closed again to remove the overlay. The Haunted Mansion Holiday takes place shortly after the events of the film it conjoins with, The Nightmare Before Christmas, where Jack Skellington, who tried to create his very own twisted Christmas in a Halloween-style overlay in the movie, now discovers the Haunted Mansion, home to 999 Happy Haunts. Upon visiting the mansion, guests first see that the facade has been completely redecorated, with jack-o-lanterns and candles. Jack’s sleigh is on the roof.

In the foyer, a grim rendition of Making Christmas plays while the Ghost Host begins to tell the story of what is happening at the mansion. A picture of Jack Skellington slowly changes into Jack dressed as “Sandy Claws”. Doors open, letting guests into the famous octagonal portrait gallery. Large stained glass paintings line the walls, depicting innocent Christmas scenes. After the doors close shut, all goes dark with the horrendous sound of the paintings breaking in half. A dreadful scream and the shattering of bones is heard, and the doors reopen.

Guests are lead into the Loading Area, where they board their Doom Buggy to begin the tour. From above, Jack greets guests with Sally and the Vampire Teddy. Down another hallway, paintings of characters from Halloween Town watch guests’ every move. In the library, Zero has created a spinning Christmas tree of books, wrapped in garlands. The Doom Buggies then float into the Music Room, where Sally sits, listening to the Vampire Teddy play for her rapidly on the piano. As guests glide upstairs, insects shiver in fear inside of cages, with tags reading, “To Oogie”.

Oogie’s shadow can be seen dancing on the face of the moon and turning into a Christmas tree. Guests float past an Endless Hallway, with bone decor all around. Zero, Jack’s dog floats inside, barking happily. In the Conservatory, a group of flowers has sprung to life and now forms the choir.
