Spine-tingling Saturday #8: The darker side of Disney

Posted on: March 26, 2015

I first read this story back when it was originally posted on Reddit and have re-read it a couple times since then. As you probably know, I am a huge Disney nerd (HUGE)! At the same time, I love the "dark side" of Disney. The book by that title really sucked, but (for some reason) people love writing scary stories about all things Disney.

This story by Reddit user _Illuminati_ takes one of my favorite rides, Living with the Land, and makes it incredibly creepy! The writing isn't perfect, but the author does a great job of creating a deliciously spooky environment out of a beloved family ride. You don't have to have any prior knowledge of Disney World to be completely freaked out by this one!

I slowly started to walk up to the faux house; climbing the steps up to the porch I noticed a small emblem on the left window. It's a small square and compass symbol, interesting that a Masonic symbol is hidden here. I figured whoever build the ride was a Freemason and brushed it off. I looked in the windows of the house and it was nothing but curtains with black plywood behind them. I thought that there was nothing to see here, but still something inside me decided that wasn't good enough. The front door glided open to a bright room with a black and white checkerboard floor. There was a marble alter like table on the opposite end of the room with some kind of Weird throne like chair built into the front of it and a gold cup on the table top. The only other thing that was noticeable was a heavy wooden door on the other end of the room that was locked; there were no windows or anything else.
