Madame Leota received a fresh new hairdo during the recent Haunted Mansion refurbishment

The Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World recently closed for a refurbishment, leading to a ton of guest speculation about the installation occurring during the closure. Disney stuck to the schedule and did not install our new happy haunt, but they did update one iconic attraction-Madame Leota now has a new hairstyle!

Guests who rode the attraction following the refurb immediately notice Leota’s new hairstyle.

Madame Leota now has a very distinct hairstyle, which is different from the ethereal floaty-type hair she had previously.

Hatbox Ghost

Many fans were hopeful the recent refurbishment would see the installation of the Hatbox Ghost at Walt Disney World’s Haunted Mansion.

Disney has previously announced: “Later this year at the Walt Disney World Resort, one of our most iconic specters will set up residence in the Haunted Mansion of Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom Park. The Hatbox Ghost will appear to guests as they pass the Endless Hallway, welcoming himself inside from the swinging wake in the cemetery and grinning at the Doom Buggies as they set off deeper into the mansion. Guests will soon see temporary barriers materialize as we await his apparition.”

The area that Disney indicated would be the installation point for the Hatbox Ghost, just to the left of the Endless Hallway, has been blocked off for the installation.

No specific date for the Hatbox Ghost reveal at Walt Disney World has been announced.
