(KGTV) - The spookiest time of the year at Disneyland isn’t always Halloween. In 2019, it comes in August, as the Haunted Mansion marks its 50th anniversary.

Disney is honoring the milestone with “The Haunted Mansion: Celebrating 50 Years of Retirement Unliving.”

The after-hours events will include special entertainment, character encounters, photo opportunities, themed food and drinks, unique merchandise, and what Disney describes as “a few supernatural surprises.”

Event highlights include:

*A 13th Hour Celebration kick-off along the Rivers of America. The “Swinging Wake” will feature Madame Leota of crystal ball fame conjuring the festivities.

*Themed backdrops for photos with unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass pictures.

*Limited-time Snapchat filters and event hashtags.

*After-hours access to select attractions New Orleans Square, Critter Country, Frontierland and Adventureland.

The events will be held August 7-8 and August 8-9, with line-up starting at 11:30 p.m. and special access to the park from 1 a.m. - 4 a.m.

A limited quantity of tickets for both event nights will be available beginning Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 10 a.m. Ticket prices were not immediately disclosed.
