Disneyland- Anaheim, CA

It’s the happiest place on earth. Disneyland has been serving the public now since 1955, putting smiles on millions with their state of the art park, thanks to Walt Disney. It’s also the happiest haunted place on earth. For over 60 years now, Disneyland has accumulated quite a bit of ghost stories, and paranormal sitings. Your favorite ride there just might have a ghost waiting for you.

Mr. One Way, is one of the spirits that haunts Disneyland. He is reportedly seen at Space Mountain. The rumor is, people have gone on the roller coaster by themselves, and are joined by a large man with red hair, and a red face. The ride will start with him sitting by their side. At the end of the ride, he is gone. A man had died on the Space Mountain ride back in the 1970's. People believe this is Mr. One Way.  He has also been seen in the Locker rooms. Joining his ghostly side, is Disco Debbie. A woman who died of an  aneurysm behind the Space Mountain building. She is described as a glowing green ghost inside of the ride.

It's A Small World is another big Disneyland attraction with an abundance of spooky stories. Rumor is, cast members that worked here loved the ride so much, that people feel that they came back here after they had died. The big story here, is the lights turn off and on by itself, along with the dolls dancing by themselves, long after the electricity had been turned off. Cast members also claim that the dolls switch places on their own, or completely disappear never to be seen again. 

Dolly Young is another spirit that haunts the happiest place on earth. She is at The Matterhorn on the Tomorrowland side (or the B side). Back in 1984, she was on the ride with a child in front of her. In the middle of the ride, she is said to have taken off her seatbelt to help the child in front of her. Unfortunately, her head had hit the bridge, and she had fallen onto the track. The next Bobsled came down shortly, and she was ran over by it. They had to take apart the track, to get her body out of there. On the ride, it is now known as Dolly's dip. One of the workers claimed that the lights at Dolly's dip never worked. Her presence could be felt, when the lights were being checked on. 

One of the most common ghost sightings is on The Pirates of the Caribbean Ride. At night, employees see a boy riding one of the boats on the surveillance cameras. When the ride is done, the boy is gone. People have also dumped human ash on this ride, numerous times. The transition tunnel, which is the darkest part of the ride, is said by the employees that there are odd noises, talking, and laughter when the ride is completely shut off. Also, there is one real human skull in the ride. The skull above the bed in the treasure/skeleton segment.

Similar stories are said at The Haunted Mansion (where else). A mothers son had died young. His favorite ride at Disneyland was The Haunted Mansion. Having her son cremated, she asked Disneyland if she could scatter the ashes on the ride. Of course, the park said no. However, she snuck the ashes in and did it anyway. At the end of the ride, people have reported hearing the sound of a little boy crying. Also, a pilot also resides at the Mansion. A plane crash had occurred in the 1940's before Disneyland existed.  He is known as the man with cane according to  seeksghosts.blogspot. One of the cast members saw him at Doom Buggy loading dock. Finally, when the mansion first opened in 1963, someone had died in the mansion of a heart attack, because it was too scary for them. It didn't open again until 1969. 

If you thought these were all the hauntings, think again. There's more. The ghost of a teen who tried to sneak into Disneyland back in 1966, was killed by the monorail. Guests have reported seeing him running along the tracks. A woman in a nightgown is seen on main st. afterdark. Apparently, her purpose is to guide lost kids to care center, where their parents can find them. In 1973, two brothers stayed after the park had closed on Tom Sawyer Island. They tried swimming across the river, but one of the brothers drowned. Casts members at times, see a struggle happening in the river, only to learn nothing is there. Another teenager had died on the people mover in the 1960's. He had a girlfriend with blonde hair. Girls with blonde hair mention that they have been touched by an unseen figure. 

Last but not least, non other than Walt Disney resides at his masterpiece. He had an apartment at the Fire Station on Main st. His light in the apartment remains on in his remembrance. One of the cast members back in 1966, was turning off this light, and heard a disembodied voice say "I am still here. He died in 1965 of lung cancer. However, it's rumored that his body is cryogenically frozen. 

Over the years, Disneyland has made sure to keep it as the happiest place on earth, improving things so accidents can be kept at minimum. Disneyland will never be complete. It'll always be growing, and expanding. Of course, this also means that the spirits will also continue to accumulate. Hopefully, just visitors that enjoyed Disneyland in their lifetime.

The Graber Olive House- Ontario, CA

What kind of a business comes to mind, when it’s known that there has been one open since 1894 in the city of Ontario, CA? It couldn’t be a business that manufactures olives, could it? That’s precisely what Graber Olive House has done since 1894. For over a 100 years now, they have been producing, and manufacturing quality olives. 

The Franciscan missionaries from Spain are to thank for planting Olive trees at the Mission San Diego de Alcala in 1769. These trees prospered, and it became a tradition for Californians to set their tables with olives, because of their nutty flavor, and health benefits. C.C. Graber purchased the land that the olive house sits on today. After discovering olives, he began researching them, and eventually began curing his own barrels. That’s how the Graber Olive House began it’s business in 1894. Within it’s time span, it’s also gathered a respected reputation in the paranormal field.

Many claims, and sightings have occurred at this location. 4 children spirits have been seen here, the spirit of a woman named Inez that worked at Graber for 65 years, a spirit known as “The Creeper”, and even an alien known as the Graber Alien. The Loft, labeling area, museum, and Vat Room are all active with spirits. There’s also an old Ford T-Model truck around the olive house that is said to be active with ghosts as well. 

Back in 2014, we began our investigation of The Graber Olive House in the loft area, where the spirits of Luke and Mary are said to be. We had the Ovilus set to dictionary mode, and it began the session with “Store.” We were explaining to the spirits that the devices set up were like toys. With the response store, toy store comes to mind. Also, the woman Inez came to mind as well, since she worked at The Graber store for 65 years. Attempting to communicate with Inez, Adam then felt what felt like someone touching his arm, with no one around. When asked if someone touched his arm, the Ovilus responded with “Sent.” Later on in the session, we caught what appears to be an anomaly on video. The light comes from the bottom, and then disappears as it goes up. It could have been a bug, or a flashlight. Looking at the video though, it disappears as it continues to go up midway. Interestingly enough, the Ovilus says “Light” later on. 

We then moved onto the Vat Room. This is where the shadow spirit known as the Creeper has been seen. A few paranormal groups have been to this location, and caught this figure. It’s seen as a very dark shadow in the photographs. We began once again with the Ovilus, and it said “D”. A fellow investigators name is Dee. At this point in the investigation, we felt it was time to start doing a Spirit Box Session. Beginning, we asked if any spirits could point out where “The Creeper” was. They responded that they could. We then asked where the spirit was. A response came through either saying “Hi”, or “Hiding.” Again asking where the Creeper was, another response came through saying “Near you”, or “Who are you?” Later on in the spirit box session, we asked if any spirits could lead us to the creeper. Something came through and said “Graber.” Then, we asked if C.C. Graber was there, and something came through saying “Yes.” With these answers, it’s possible that the spirit of C.C. Graber, could find the creeper. 

After the spirit box session in the Vat Room, we decided not to use any equipment in there, and relax to let the spirits communicate when they want too. Doing this, we heard a consistent tapping, and scratching noise coming from the back of the room. We went to the back quietly, and cautiously. When we arrived at the back, the tapping/scratching noise went on for just a couple of more seconds. After that, it stopped, and nothing was in site. One of the claims of The Vat Room, is the claim of a ghost dog that roams around there. It may have been the spirit of that animal. 

In the museum, we got plenty of EMF activity going on with our K-II Meter. The spirits really responded when we talked about food. There was strong emotions being given off, talking about comfort foods. The strongest response was when mashed potatoes were brought up, followed by Thanksgiving foods. The K-II meters were going all the way to red, which is the highest it goes. The museum we felt had the most benevolent spirits. However, we did get one EVP on the digital recorder that sounded like “You killed him.”


Going into the Labeling Room, we decided to go back to the Spirit Box, along with a K-II meter, Rem Pod, and Ovilus. Claims of Black Magick, and Witchcraft were done here. Also, video footage of a child spirit named Jake, was seen playing with a ball here. When asked if those things were done in that area, a spirit came through saying “Pray.” Another voice came through later on in The Spirit Box Session saying “Kill him.” With the Spirit Box Session continuing, we got a lot of hits on the K-II Meter. After that, the investigation was over. 

Graber Olive House has been a successful business for many years now. 122 years of a running business is something to be proud of. It doesn’t hurt being a respected, haunted attraction as well in the paranormal field.
