Disneyland Horror Stories

Published

on

By

Today we are talking about the Top Disneyland Horror Stories…. I don’t know about you but I am not sure I am going to feel the same way about the most magical place on earth after this list.

 Stuck on It’s a A Small World

Can you imagine the horror of being stuck on creepy creepy ride, It’s a small world. This is what happened to a paralyzed man who was stuck in the ride’s Goodbye Room for 45 minutes. Jose Martniez was stuck as the ride broke down and stuff were unable to provide him with an exit like other riders. The Dolls in that ride are so scary, I can’t imagine being alone with them….while they sing and I can’t not listen.

The White Lady In Disneyland California

Many people have reported seeing a lady dressed in 19th century clothing along Main Street in the park. The woman is thought to have died in the area in the early 1900s, which of course was before Disney was even built. The woman seems to be a benevolent presence in her new home, and helps lost children find the Baby Care Centre.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Another ghost said to haunt Disneyland is none other than Walt Disney himself While many rumors have circulated that Disney has had his body frozen and stored under the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, that gossip has been debunked. What has been said though, is that Disney’s haunt’s the park itself, especially his old office above the fire station. The story goes that Disney always put a lamp in his Window when he was in the park to let people know he is there. After he died, a cast member was cleaning and saw the lamp was lit so she turned it off. She claims when she went downstairs and looked back up from the street, it had lit itself again. Now the light shines all the time as a signifier of Disney’s continued presence in the park.

Pluto Killed in Parade

Disney World Worker, Javier Cruz, was killed in 2004 in full Pluto costume amid a parade. Unfortunately the 38 year old, who had worked at Disney for 8 years, was run over by a rogue parade float. The incident took place backstage by the east of Splash Mountain as the performers were lining up just minutes before the parade was due to start. Cruz was about to go through a fate into public view as the accident happened, and it is not known whether or not any guests saw the incident.

Gator Death In 2016

Disneyworld Florida was at the centre of a horrible tragedy when a 2 year old boy from Nebraska was killed by an Alligator at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa Hotel at Disney World Orlando. The little boy, Lane Graves, was playing by the 7 seas lagoon, where allegedly there were no gator warnings. Before his parents had chance to rescue their son, he was dragged away and drowned by a gator… It was later admitted that the alligator population was not being monitored and that they had no idea how many gators were living in the waters surrounding the parks. Recently, the boy was honored with a lighthouse statue, commissioned by Disney. The boys parents decided not to sue Disney, and instead established the Lane Thomas Foundation.

Cancer in California Disneyland

California is OLD. It is the first ever Disney location and when it was built in 1955, back when people were using lead based paint. Lead, as we know now, can cause cancer. Attractions with the highest lead levels were found to be the Sword in the Stone, in Minnie’s House, and Cinderella’s Castle. The park’s reaction? To place warning signs. The signs read: Warning – The Disneyland Resort contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Working at Disney doesn’t seem like such a dream job now!

 Phantom Manor electrocution

In spring 2016, a cast member was killed at Disneyland Paris’s haunted house. The ride that features ghoulish ghosts and spirits needed some maintenance and unfortunately the 45 year old man was electrocuted while in the house of horrors.

 Matterhorn Death In 1984

A 48-year-old woman was killed when she was thrown from a Matterhorn Bobsled car and struck by the next oncoming bobsled. The woman, named Dolly, appeared to have fallen out of the ride as her seatbelt was not buckled. As she was riding alone in the sled, it is unknown if she unfastened it herself or if the ride malfunctioned. The area she died is now called Dolly’s drop by cast members, some of whom think her presence can still be felt.

Thunder Mountain Death

In 2003, a 22 year old man died as a result of internal bleeding from blunt force trauma as train derailed on big thunder mountain. The train became airborne and hit the rides ceiling before falling into another passenger car, crushing Marcelo Torres. The death was ruled as a result of poor maintenance. Christmas at Disney seems all the more magical….

Christmas Catastrophe on the Columbia Sailing Ship

The Sailing Ship Columbia is an old and supposedly tame ride in Disneyland California. It is a replica of the Columbia Rediviva – the first American ship to circumnavigate the globe. The ride is very gentle and takes passengers on a 12 minute sailing trip. Unfortunately on Christmas Eve in 1998, part of boats metal cleat hit two passengers waiting to board, killing one 34 year old man man and disfiguring his wife. The incident happened in front of the couple’s two children and other horrified guests. A Disney employee was also injured.

The Top most Secrets School teacher won’t let you know

Published

The Top most Secrets School’s teacher won’t let you know.. Here is the list for all students must see!

Teachers have favorites…

and least favorites…and it affects the way they’re treated. Obviously! Just how kids have favorite teachers and least favorite teachers…and just how in life we have favorite and least favorite people – teachers will pick favorites. Teachers are more likely to help students who are polite to them, they’re more likely to grade up their papers if they’re borderline, and of course they are more likely to cut these students some slack. Their least favorites are likely to be students who are rude or arrogant. Even if teachers are supposed to treat their students equally, their emotions come into play.

 Teachers talk About You Behind your Back

Remember those least favorites? Well…teachers don’t usually keep that to themselves. Also, if they find you an interesting character, they’ll talk about you too. If you rotate classes, you will have a number of teachers and they WILL talk about you. They will probably share stories about you with one another.

In Schools, teachers have drama just like the kids

It isn’t just you that hates Mr Fitz, Mrs Green does to….. Whatever, teachers have staff room dramas too, especially as some of them are wildly different people who have different ways and beliefs on how to do things. Teachers sometimes can’t stand each other…but on the flip side, some of them are dating…. And they really don’t want you to know about it.

Teachers Look Up Kids and Parents on Social Media

Yup. You might facebook stalk people…maybe even your teachers… but they look you and your parents up too. Curiosity is natural…and finding out that you were actually skipping school to drink in the park or go to the mall is possible with the power of facebook. Also creeping on your parents may go some way to explaining why you are the way you are.

Schools judge parents as much as the child

Yup. Bad kid…. Bad parents, or so it often goes. A child never has any food with them for lunch…yeah…bad parents. Often teachers will keep an eye on a child that they suspect has a parental issue and they will decide whether or not to call them in.

Failing a test isn’t the end of the world

I actually do hope that schools will tell you this, as kids sometimes crumble under the pressure of exams and they should know that messing up on occasion isn’t the end of the world. When you are 40 years old, you probably won’t hinge the failings or successes of your entire life on one exam. So relax…also…you’ll probably get a better grade if you’re not feeling stressed. Shh, don’t tell anyone but not doing your homework won’t affect your grade….

Homework not workout

In most schools, your day to day homework won’t contribute to your grade, however, your essays and tests results will. The reason you are assigned homework is to prepare your brain for the tests and essays that will count, so it is always a good idea to do it…although a teacher can’t fail you for not.

Your Work isn’t always read when it’s graded.

Teachers are busy. Imagine they take 5 different classes a day, and they need to grade work from each se of students….it is an endless pile. More often than not, teachers will want to get the additional workload done and dusted so they can focus on having a life. Because…they have one too. The problem is it does seem a bit unfair when you spend hours on a piece of work that gets three minutes of attention from teachers.

A lot of teachers are unhappy.

Teachers kind of have a tough time of it. They’re not just working while you’re at school; they’re there before and after setting up and preparing for your lessons, then after they’re there marking or preparing for the next day. Most teachers I know work from 8am til 5 or 6pm, and then have marking, too. They don’t get paid that much either, which is a constant bone of contention. Increasingly these days, they also have to deal with violent children, which is scary.

 Big End of Year Exams are Bad For Students

There have been a lot of studies that have revealed that end of year exams with big weightings on a students grade are harmful to them. It turns out tests aren’t always the best way to decipher a person’s intelligence and the system is heavily weighted against those who struggle with anxiety. Hopefully one day there will be a better way to test people in the future – In Finland, for example there are no tests except from one exam at the end of senior year at high school.

Hitler has become one of the most iconic public figures in history for his outrages believes. Hitler died back in 1945 in Berlin Germany from a suicide. He killed himself so he wouldn’t be captured.
