The purple flickering glow now aids to illuminate the relaxation of the scene. We assumed this operate was in preparing for the Hatbox Ghost to make his significant Walt Disney Globe debut.
A timeline of prepared openings 2022-2024 was introduced at the D23 Expo in Anaheim back in September 2022. The Hatbox Ghost appeared on the 2023 list which was superb information for Disney followers. With the now verified closure of the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom on August 7 – 9, 2023 we are speculating that this could be in order to deliver the Hatbox ghost back.

With Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicking off on August 11, it would seem to be the best time to at last provide the well-known Hatbox Ghost back again to the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom.
