It may be the happiest place on Earth, but Disneyland isn’t immune to the occasional ghost sighting.
Are the specters in these videos actually ghosts? Or is it your imagination?
1. Ghost hangs around Disneyland
A ghost casually makes his way through the empty park (0:14 onward in the video):
2. Ghost rides Space Mountain
Sometimes even death can’t stop you from hopping on your favorite ride one last time. Check the video at 0:01-0:02 to see a ghostly form head to the nearest space rocket:
3. Maintenance camera shows real ghost in Tower of Terror
This one can be hard to catch given the turbulence of both the camera and the elevator itself (which, if we want to be skeptical, could in fact be what is causing these “ghosts” to appear). The “ghost(s)” makes multiple appearances at 0:27, 1:24-1:25, and 1:52.
Here are some still shots:
Real ghosts or video artifacts, those images are pretty creepy.
Supposing for a moment that they are paranormal, however, could certain park-goers riding The Twilight Zone: Tower Of Terror have been so traumatized that they left their terrified energies behind, causing residual hauntings to repeat in their wake?
By the way, I really like the nonchalant attitude of that maintenance guy. Riding those things day in, day out, not for fun but to make sure everything’s going well. And when he lost his hat? He shook it off. Just shook. it. off. What a pro.
4. Ghost watches fireworks from the Disneyland castle
I understand that Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland is a bit smaller than, say, Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom, but this shadowy figure — maintenance guy or ghost — appears huge at 0:13.
Some commenters on Youtube wonder if this isn’t the spirit of Walt Disney himself taking in the firework show (though, personally, I think he’d be too agitated with the current state of his company to enjoy it).
5. Video taken at Disneyland catches ghost
Here’s an interesting one: A group of kids getting their pictures taken with various Disney villains, and what’s that sitting behind them, between two of Snow White’s dwarves, watching quietly at 0:13? The ghost of a man?
6. Real ghost caught on video at Tower of Terror
Another ghost at the Tower of Terror? Seems appropriate. For a ride based on the idea of being hit by lightning and sent into a nether dimension known as the Twilight Zone, perhaps real spirits can relate.
In case you missed it:
And that about wraps up the videos.
I have a terrifying story about the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, myself. It’s called being stuck on the Wedway People Mover for two hours while someone over an intercom constantly pages Tom Morrow.
