Most screams and squeals in the Magic Kingdom are from meeting characters or riding Space Mountain but the Haunted Mansion isn’t for the faint-hearted. Walk into the old, dark mansion, see apparitions on the wall and then step into your “Doom Buggy” for a slow-moving ride through the mansion’s rooms as ghouls float in the hallways and can even slip into your buggy and momentarily ride beside you.

  • Highlight: Ride a Doom Buggy
  • When: Available anytime the park is open!
  • Where:  Magic Kingdom, Disney World
