August 9, 1969, the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland finally opens to the public!

Their last names of Doom and Hatchaway only add to the story here…..and speaking of stories, have you heard the tale of the mischievous Hatbox Ghost? Here’s some serious “ghostbusting” by The Disney History Institute that “unearthed” some amazing footage……
…hurry back….and don’t forget to bring your DEATH certificate!
