Could the “happiest place on Earth” also be one of the most haunted? Check out the tales below –mined from two major Disney forums–and decide for yourself.
Haunted Mansion Ghost Boy
“I took my 100 ft. nightshot accessory to Walt Disney World (WDW) with the specific purpose of taking ride photos of the Haunted Mansion for a WDW Virtual Visit. After documenting the ride, I put the camera away for the rest of the day. I went back to our place that evening and began to download the photos to my laptop. Lo and behold, one of the first shots of the attraction shows something that definitely WAS NOT there when I was on the ride. This photo was taken in the first hallway of the attraction, the one with the eye-following portraits.
As you’ll see in the photo, it appears as though a child is peeking his head out of the doombuggy and looking directly at me. Not only was he not there when I took the pic, there wasn’t a child of this age within 20 people in front of me in line, and as you can see, he’s only a few doombuggies in front of me. Not only that, what’s he doing looking at me? There is NO flash and NO visible light coming from me. It’s all infrared and invisible to the naked eye.
I think it’s an incredibly spooky photo, and I have no idea where that kid came from.”
