While we’ll have to wait a few more weeks for the Haunted Mansion to reopen at Magic Kingdom, we had an unusual encounter today that reminded us of the spooky attraction!
We’re crossing over to the Other Side to see where all the ghouls and boys like to play at…The Ghost Arcade!
Even though Disney’s Beach Club Resort’s DVC rooms are available for guests, the property isn’t quite fully-functional just yet. Its neighboring hotel, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, is also still closed off for now.
But after enjoying some lunch at Beaches and Cream, we decided to check out some other spots at the property (at least, the bits and pieces where we were allowed to visit!) That’s when we noticed the arcade was open, but…
…NOBODY’S AROUND! In fact, despite the arcade being unlocked and open for guests to roam, none of the machines are turned ON!
Is your spine-tingling yet? Just like the Haunted Mansion, we don’t want you to be TOO AFRAID! And while we probably haven’t made you scream in terror quite yet, we just wanted to share this other-worldly experience with you!
Maybe they just forgot to fire up the games today?! Either way, we wish somebody or someTHING would materialize in here so we wouldn’t feel so alone! Lol, we realize this isn’t the most earthshaking news to see a haunted abandoned, powered off, yet STILL accessible arcade but it was so strange to us we just had to share it with you!
Who knows — maybe this is what the 999 Happy Haunts have been up to with all of their free time! We could see Master Gracey workin’ on his free throw skills, just so long as he doesn’t mistake Madame Leota for a basketball!
After all, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is expected to take in the NBA’s Blazers, Kings, Pelicans, Spurs, Suns, and Wizards soon, so we don’t blame the Haunted Mansion specters for wanting to brush up their b-ball moves!
