It may be the happiest place on Earth, but it could also be one of the most haunted.  Walt Disney’s ghost is rumored to haunt the grounds of his beloved amusement park.  The spirit of the lady who perished on the Matterhorn purportedly haunts the spot on the track where she met her untimely demise. And it should be no surprise that several otherworldly spirits have been spotted in the Haunted Mansion.

Mission San Juan Capistrano

The faceless ghost of a monk reportedly haunts this California mission, whose founding dates back to 1776.  Also noteworthy are the repeated sightings of a headless soldier who stands guard at the mission’s entrance.  Oh, and be wary of the mission’s church bell; it has the tendency to ring all by itself at random hours throughout the night.

Black Star Canyon

Because of Black Star Canyon’s secluded location, it can be beautiful during the daytime.  But that beauty is eclipsed by the overall weirdness that has been reported during nighttime hours.  Located in the Santa Ana Mountains, Black Star Canyon has been the setting for ghost sightings, disembodied screams, and even rumors of satanic cult-like activity.

Stanley House

Located in Garden Grove, this late-19th century house was donated by Agnes Stanley to the Garden Grove Historical Society.  Rumor has it she still haunts the grounds.  In her twilight years, Agnes Stanley had trouble getting up her own stairs; as a bitter ghost, she makes it difficult for many visitors to climb to the second floor of the house.  Photographers have sworn that their pictures show several ghosts inside the house and on the grounds.
