From ghostsnghouls.com to hauntedhoneymoon.com to theghostdiaries.com (and many others), there are enough creepy Disneyland stories to fill the Haunted Mansion.
I recently interviewed a cast member who works inside the Haunted Mansion. She talked about the belief, among Disney employees, that the place is inhabited by more than the Disney-created 999 haunts.
She said female employees talk about ghosts that untie the ribbons in the cast members’ hair. She said props move from one side of a room to the other. She said there are behind-the-scenes rooms in the Haunted Mansion that are so creepy employees avoid going inside.
Did you hear the one about the one-way rider on Space Mountain? How about Walt Disney’s ghost on Main Street? Or about the grad night ghost on the Monorail?
Check out the Haunted Disney legends:
Legend 1: Walt Disney haunts Disneyland – Everyone knows that Walt had an apartment over the Fire Station on Main Street, right? And that the light in the window is never turned off – a tribute to Walt, who died in 1966, right? But did you hear this one: Before the tradition of leaving the light on began, a cast member turned off the light and left the room only to find the light turned on again when she returned. The story goes that she heard a voice that said, “I am still here.”
Legend 2: Space Mountain’s Mr. One Way – He’s described as a large man with red hair and a red face. The legend is that he sits in the seat next to single riders. Then he disappears by the end of the ride. He has also been spotted in the cast member locker room.
Legend 3: Monorail runner -- In June of 1966, a teenager tried to sneak into Disneyland for grad night by climbing a fence and crossing the Monorail track. When he was spotted by a security guard, the teenager ran. But he was struck and killed by the Monorail train. It is said that the ghost of the teenager can be seen at night running alongside the Monorail train.
