Ghosts of the Disney Magic Kingdom
Guests to the Disney
establishments expect to come across ghosts and spirits when they visit the
Haunted Mansion, but they certainly don't expect the experiences that many park
visitors report about ghostly goings-on.
When Walt Disney decided to put
in the Haunted Mansion, he was quoted
as saying -
|"We’re going to
have ghosts from all over the world... but we haven't got the ghosts
in yet. We’re out and stay at
Disneyland, so we guarantee them creaking doors and creaking
Walt Disney, 1965
He had no idea how very prophetic his words
might become when it came to the real deal at Disney World. The ghosts
are real, according to those who have seen, felt and encountered them.
Many, in fact, are said to walk the grounds, climb stair cases and peek out
from around corners. Both child ghosts and adults are said to haunt both
Disney World and Disneyland.
Although there are the few
reports of actually seeing Disney himself, Walt's been pretty quiet in his
silent overseeing of the empire he built.
Despite the rumors that have gone
on for years about his supposedly being cryogenically frozen after his death,
this is entirely false. Mr. Disney was cremated two days following his
death and the ashes interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
But the following are true
accounts of guest and employee reports as to the haunting of Walt Disney World
- George is a ghost said to haunt the area of the Pirates of the
Caribbean. It's said a beam fell on him and killed him.
ghost's presence has been acknowledged so well that the
employees say good morning to him at the start of the day,
as well as say good night to him at the end of the workday.
If he is not respected, the attraction has been known to
shut off on its own"
- Employees have been known to talk about a ghost that haunts the
Tower of Terror. He walks about when there are no guests.
- A young blond girl has been spotted at the Spaceship Earth area at
Epcot Center. She rides a car, sometimes with a young boy who is
found around her.
What happens at Disney World,
doesn't stay at Disney World, especially when its as interesting as the real
deal. No animation, puppetry or any other "effect" in this
The Disney Ghosts walk.
Believe it or not!
This is the kind of story you can only find on a site like this! You won't
hear this in online universities and certainly not part of
degrees. I hope its what makes you enjoy the site.
