Disney Ghost Stories

So there are tales and stories about if you say certain names on Haunted Mansion or Pirates the ride will stop. Could be anything but do you have any Disney Ghost stories?

Disneylore is that if the CM's don't say good night to "George" at POTC the next day he causes it to have issues and breakdown.

I don't know of one at HM.

George

The story is something like this - George was a worker in the building of POTC that fell (off a ladder I think) and died. So he "haunts" the ride. If you say his name 3 times while on it, it will break down.

There are a few different versions but this is the one I have heard the most.

I however will NOT be saying his name 3 times, b\c I do NOT want to get stuck on the ride.

Something like this I don't know the full exact story. I doubt anyone does know since its been talked about so much.

I do know that CM's working there have to say hello to George. DH worked on POTC as a mechanic at night. He said it was really spooky inside the building at night knowing George was in the building.

this so reminds me of my oldest girls trying to scare my son just as we were about to ride it. They started talking about George and the story behind it and just as we were about to go on they said his name three times. Nothing happened on the ride, but my son was freaked out and I had to calm him down.
