Doom Buggies of The Haunted Mansion

Even from the very first sketches of plans for Disneyland, Walt Disney always wanted to include a haunted house attraction in his park. Unlike haunted houses at other amusement parks, Walt’s haunted house would have a lighter, friendlier, comedic feel to the attraction. He originally planned to make his haunted house a walk-through attraction. Guests would stroll through at their own pace, taking in the sights and sounds of Walt’s haunted house. After further research, this walk-through attraction posed a few problems; How would the imagineers ensure a high enough capacity to allow each guest a chance to experience the attraction? How you the direct the guests’ attention to certain the elements of the attraction?

Doom Buggies

In their search for an efficient way to guide guests through Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction, the imagineers turned to a ride system which had previously proven itself on Adventure Through Space – the omnimover. This type of attraction vehicle consisted of a continuous chain of ride vehicles which would move throughout the attraction as one unit. The individual vehicles would be able to turn in any direction.  The Haunted Mansion’s onmimover vehicles, affectionately called Doom Buggies, are the perfect ride vehicle for directing guests’ attention throughout the attraction and enhancing the eeriness of the Haunted Mansion.

Walt Disney World Refurbishment Schedule - March 2016

Walt once said Disneyland will never be complete, as long as there is imagination left in the world. The same could be said of his Florida project, Walt Disney World. The imagineers are constantly working to keep the parks and resorts up-to-date while also bringing new magic to the vacation kingdom. In order for the imagineers to make sure Walt’s dream keeps growing and changing, sometimes our favorite attractions must be closed for a short time. We’ve got the updated Walt Disney World Refurbishment Schedule so you won’t be surprised by any attractions closed during your next vacation. As always, the Refurbishment Schedule is subject to change, so be sure to  confirm any information prior to your vacation.

  • Magic Kingdom
    • The Walt Disney World Resort Monorail System is undergoing refurbishment through April 2016 and may be on modified service and/or routes.
