They go bump in the night and send shivers down your spine. Your nightmares. The stairs creak because a ghost is walking. Do these things keep you awake at night? Then you probably shouldn’t keep reading.
Something that feels so right has to be.. wrong, right? Or at least eerily spooky? Disney is so much fun that there have to be some skeletons hiding in the closet, or “secret underworld” that lies behind the scenes.
Ever wonder why the light is kept on in the apartment above the firehouse on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom? No, there are not firefighters in there. That is Walt Disney’s actual apartment. After Walt died, Disney employees tried to turn the light off but it always turns back on..
- The Pirates of Caribbean Ride is constructed with real bones, I have mentioned this before. Do cast member still conveniently dispose bodies there? That’s for you to guess and for me to never find out.
- Disney’s Main Street is haunted by more than just Walt Disney. A lady in white wonders the streets at all hours. She was killed on Main Street’s grounds before Disney built his empire. She has never been put to rest, and is constantly wandering the streets and checking storefronts for her children. Legend has it that she has been known to have guided actual lost children to the Baby Care Center. Would you trust her with your kids? Instead of telling my kids to look for “the lady in white” I usually make sure that we all decide on a designated area should they get lost.. but that’s just me.
- Do you ever ride the monorail? One teenager tried to sneak into Disneyland in 1966 by climbing a fence, a fence that led right to the monorail tracks. He was then decapitated, run over by the same train that was supposed to take him to experience the joy of Disney. If you look closely, more than a few people have spotted him running alongside the train.
- Several people report that a small boy stands at the exit of the Haunted Mansion, crying. When a guest or employee tries to speak to him, he ignores them as if they are not there. Well, he is not there. He is of another dimension. Possibly one of the ashes scattered around the Haunted Mansion. Click here to learn more.
Is your spine tingling yet? There are more real life accounts of employees who have passed in very gruesome ways, but I will save these for another day.
