Which Walt Disney World ride might actually be haunted? | NJ.com

Like every popular place that attracts millions of visitors each year, there are ghost stories that surround several areas in Disney World.

One of the most well-known is the story of George, a construction worker who died while building Pirates of the Caribbean.

The young worker either fell to his death while working at the top of the “burning city” scene inside the ride, or had a heavy beam fall on him during construction, but either way, George died inside the Pirates building in 1970, before the park opened to the public.

Legend has it that since opening day, cast members who open and close the attraction say “good morning” to George at the beginning of the day, and “good night” to him at close.

If either of these greetings is missed, George is known to cause mischief, such as shutting down the ride, making phone calls from an empty control room and showing up on ride monitors.
