Haha, that would be awesome! To haunt a ride at WDW. Whoa man... I'm gonna have to remember that. When I die, I'll go to WDW and pick a ride!
I'm such a freak. Lmao.

Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
hmm, thats kinda gross... some little kid probably thinks that they are just playing in the dirt and in reality it is someone's ashes?! yuck!!
I have been at Disney for several years and have worked both PotC and TOT. I had strange encounters at both. At Pirates several years ago i was on an over night stock team and were we getting the House of Treasure (now a stock room) ready for the nest day. We had the opportunity to visit the attraction back stage. One of the maintenance guys had showed us the way and we were taking it all in. Our guide had to answer the phone and walked down a few steps out of our site. We wanted to snap a picture so we asked another maintenance guy who walked up to click it as we stood by one of the props. The guy snapped the photo and walked off. About that time the other guy came back from his call. He asked if we wanted him to snap the shot and we let him know the other guy had done it. He looked at us kind of funny. He said no one else was there but him everyone else was at lunch and he was just on the phone with them. We then thought is may have been a custodial cast member but later learned they had not come to the attraction yet. Our maintenance guy mentioned George (it was my first time hearing of George) and I just dismissed it. Over the years I have had others tell me of there encounters with George and they all described the same person. So I am not sure if George snapped our photo or not but that night all were accounted for and we have no idea who it could have been. By the way the camera we had was a disposable one. All the pictures came out fine except for the one our unknown friend took. it was just a white blur.

I watch Ghost Hunters too as the skeptic always debunking.
I've never heard about the "George Myth" but I am feeling a bit differently about an experience I had on WDW PoTC.
I went solo to MVMCP Dec. 2004. I was having the time of my life riding the attractions totally alone in many instances. Oh, boy, I thought, my fantasy to ride PoTC totally alone might come true. Just me, no one else in the ride, I'll have PoTC all to myself. I walk through the entire PoTC queue alone, I board the boat alone, no one in line, no one in boats ahead or behind me, I'm set. WooHoo off I go. It was FUN for about 3 min. Then, I began to feel uncomfortable and almost afraid. "This is silly", I tell myself but I was still looking around every inch of the ride realizing I was totally alone in the attraction and just waiting for it to end.
I arrive at the spot where you go under/through the bridge and it's so dark you cannot see your hand in front of your face. I will SWEAR to my dying day there was someone on in the darkness to the right as if standing under the bridge that was darker than the darkness. I literally screamed ouot loud and jumped to the left in the boat so quick that I fell over (thankfully not OUT). It was definitely not a CM. I've seen plenty of CMs standing inside dark attractions in my 53 years of going to Disney parks. LOL, but I must say that the CM monitoring the ride cameras probably wonderered what in the world was wrong with me, lol.
After that all I wanted was to get off that ride and I did not attend MVMCP solo in Dec. 05. I always thought my imagination and fear simply took over. But, now I'm wondering what in The World did I see???
I'm wondering, what IS the George Myth? Is there supposed to be a dead George inside PoTC?

I LOVE the George myth. I've wished him a good night on several occassions. And on the days I'm in Town Square and there is an evac on PotC, we all know someone forgot to wish George a goodnight/ morning.
There's also a ghost on HM. I don't remember the story very well, but there has been a guy seen walking the step off from the doombuggies converbelt after the ride has closed.

Hey Panda Girl..I'd love to have that list you say you got..please???lol
Can't run away from Trouble, ain't no place that far.
george is a trouble maker that is for sure. little known ghost is from the jungle cruise. when the ride was being built a worker was crushed by one of the hippos being lowered into the hippo pool. to this day when skippers bring "dead boats" (boats with no guests to keep the boat rotation going) some skippers have seen him standing in the back of their boat, and the smell of cigarette smoke is often noticed at the same time, or around the hippo pool.
By any chance podperson, are you a current skipper?
