On August 9, 1969 the Haunted Mansion's gates were thrown open to an eager public. Thousands of people descended on the park to finally experience the amazing Haunted Mansion. The wild success of the Haunted Mansion was a testament to Walt Disney's vision- rather than open a substandard attraction, he waited until technology caught up with his vision.
Walt didn't live to see the success of his Haunted Mansion, but as he once said:
"Think beyond your lifetime if you want to do something truly great."
Happy anniversary to the Haunted Mansion! Still scaring guests after all these years!
