Haunted Mansion Holiday Celebrates 13 Years at Disneyland

'Tis the season for the Haunted Mansion Holiday!  The mash-up of holidays, Christmas and Halloween, obviously, takes place inside the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and is now in its 13th season.

The ride has become a must-see during the stretch from pre-Halloween to Christmas, and has a couple of neat improvements for 2013.  Seen in the video above from ThemeParkHD, the ceiling of the stretching room has received a digital upgrade.  Now the projection features Jack and other images, whereas previously it was just a giant glowing figure of his face.  Also along the queue are new portraits that are magically transformed by Zero.  It's a pretty neat effect!

And as always the Mansion received a brand new gingerbread house as well, and this year's is huge!
