    started a topic [Rumor] Haunted Mansion: Actual Ghosts?

    Haunted Mansion: Actual Ghosts?

    So, I have done some reading about the Haunted Mansion, and numerous sources claim that there are actual ghosts on the ride. Apparently, some people have spread ashes on the ride as well. I'm not really into the paranormal, and I haven't seen any "real" ghosts on the ride, but what about you? What have you heard about the Haunted Mansion actually being "haunted"? Have you seen anything?

    I don't know about you guys, but even if my dearest relative wished to have their ashes dumped in an attraction, I wouldn't do it 'cause being sucked up by a vacuum cleaner would be the worst send-off ever.

    I don't suppose we can stop bickering and get back to sharing cool ghost stories? Is that too much to ask?

    Nope, all they need is their Death Certificate. But in a weird twist, the park charges them for admission on their Deathday.

    the local paper (again, they've been doing a lot of disney stuff lately?) has a list of five "real-life" haunts at disneyland. they even link mice chat a few times! they include mr. one-way, walt himself and the crying boy in haunted amongst a few others... fun read, but super creepy.

    One might as well claim to be a vegan while chowing down on a rare top sirloin steak.
    Ahhh but you don't quite understand what I was saying. The poltergeist activity is what got me to believe in the possibility of the paranormal. I've seen stuff to show me that there is something going on. Be it a spirit ghost or just kenetic energy I don't know. I'm a skeptic when it comes to calling a place haunted. Poltergiest activity doesn't mean ghost. There are theories that claim it could possible be telekenisis power which developes in pre-teen girls which we had in our home at that time. I can believe in the possibility of paranormal activity and be skeptic when it comes a place being haunted.

    Although on the GH show, they might not always catch anything it sorta brings a little more credibility to the stuff that they do happen to catch on those rare occasions that they just cannot debunk. I mean if every episode contained a bunch of video evidence and full body apparitions then I'm sure the credibility of the show would come into question.
    The point is, to date--after millenia--there has yet to surface once scintilla of scientifically-credible evidence--subject to peer-review--to substantiate "ghosts" as supernatural beings in any way.

    Something caught on film? That's about as easily-faked as it gets.

    I'm open-minded. Just show me the evidence. Feelings, sightings, voices...they just don't make the evidence grade. And really, it's as simple as that.

    Great point.. Also, how would you like to be the guest sitting behind the ash dropping doom buggy riders who could care less if you just inhaled a whole lungfull of Uncle Bob?

    Soul-ution? Setup a drop box at the front gate or hide a box for urns in the rides so that guests can turn their loved ones over to a CM.. or for $1200.00 your family and a Plaid can go back there yourself and make a whole ceremony out of it. )

    Disney's really missing out on a profit generating opportunity here.

    And PirateMunkee, Now you have me wondering what attraction you heard the little boys voice on. I find it rather fascinating. Cant give any clues by any chance? LOL.

    But can you come up with an explanation what I went through? You weren't there and did not experience what I felt. In truth I am very skeptic. I lived in a home that had full on poltergeist experience when I was a kid. I've seen some pretty amazing stuff. Seeing stuff levitate on it's own. Closet door handles turn and open up in front of you. It's stuff like this that tends to make me believe that there is something to this but I don't believe that anyplace is haunted until I've had an unexplained experience. I'm the first one to think of ANY natural explanation first before going onto any claims of the paranormal.

    Are ghosts really the only logical explanations that you can come up with for what happened to you? There's absolutely nothing else that could be offered as an explanation?
    Like I said...I'm into paranormal investigations and I'm in the mindset that I like to disprove hauntings rather prove them. When you feel a well defined hand on your chest push you aside and there is nobody there what do you you call that. The trash can moving can be anything from a small earthquake or anything but when you have everything happening in pretty much the same time...trash can, hand pushing me and the other CM reacting to something down on his end you tend to go for the possibility of the paranormal. Now if I didn't specifically feel that well defined hand then I would tend to believe we had a weird microtremor or something like that.

    As for the other attraction. The sound came from right behind us. There are no speakers near us and if someone was on the PA the sound would of come from above us not behind us. It was a little kid voice and there are no little kids in the park at 5am. Animation was not turned on and neither was the sound and my trainee knew nothing of possible hauntings but she did hear the little kid say hey and asked me about it.

    1. Super-potent hallucinogen LSD altered your brain function on the cellular level; or

    2. You saw spirits in another dimension(s).

    Thank you, Steve, that was the joke.

    I always liked the ghost story/urban legend of one of the ghosts supposedly in Haunted Mansion...

    There was a mother and her son and her son loved Disneyland and his favorite ride of all was Haunted Mansion. Sadly, the young boy died (I forget if it was an accident or disease or what) and he was cremated. The mother took the remains to Disneyland and asked around to try to see if they would be willing to put her boy's ashes somewhere in the ride, because it was his favorite ride and that would have been the place he would have wanted to spend eternity if he could.
    Of course, the Disney employees said they were sorry, but they couldn't let her put her son's ashes in the ride. She was upset, but she accepted their decision and said she would leave.
    But, the mother, instead of leaving, took the ashes with her into the park, hidden in her purse, and went on the Haunted Mansion. While riding she opened up the urn and spread out her son's ashes in the graveyard on the ride.
    Obviously with the cameras on the ride, the employees saw her, and they had already heard down through the grapevine of a woman's request. They quickly realized this was the woman and confronted her when she got off the ride. Needless to say she was kicked out of the park, but as for the ashes, they couldn't do anything about it, and no one wanted to go and vacuum or sweep up the ashes of this woman's little boy, so they left the ashes on the ride.
    And to this day, cast members working late at night on the Haunted Mansion, sometimes report seeing a young boy wandering around the ride...

    I guess the 999 Happy Haunts finally got their 1000th guest...

    this all sounded believable up until the urn park, not trying to offend a single person, but dont they do bag checks? Are urns allowed? That just seem kinda random..
