A well known scary story about a Disney park later turned into a Creepy Pasta is the story about a set of costumes kept in the basement of an abandoned Disney island theme park which later came to life. This included an unfinished Micky costume which supposedly pulled off its head. But what some people don’t know is that it is an actual place and a lot of scary stories do come from there as well as other abandoned theme parks.
There are three major abandoned Disney parks on Islands. The most well-known is Discovery Island located in Bay Lake, Florida. River Country was an offshoot of Discovery Island which was later built on the bay Lake shore. It was eventually shut down due to lack of interest.
The theme park that has inspired a lot of the scary stories is the now abandoned Treasure Island located on the Abaco Islands, in Guana Cay (Baker’s Bay) in the Bahamas.
What many of these scary stories confuse as Treasure Island in the Bahamas is actually an abandoned theme park called called Adventure Island located on Emerald Isle in North Carolina. The Mowgli’s Palace story which is pulled into many of these urban legends is supposedly located within the Adventure Island park once built on Emerald Isle.
They all have creepy stories related to them but they often get jumbled together into one story that pulls landmarks from each island into one tale.
The most legitimate scary story I could find was actually a news report about urban explorers who mapped out the abandoned Discovery Island Park. Apparently they saw some weird stuff there which they also documented on film.
Check out the video to see how a lot of these island ghost stories often get mixed together. The Mowgli’s Palace tale in the video is obviously pulled from the North Carolina, Emerald Island Adventure Island park stories. The facts about Treasure Island are pulled from the actual history of Treasure Island located on Abaco islands, Guana Cay (Baker’s Bay). However the weird paranormal events and possibly the mascot room are most likely pulled from the Discovery Island park in Bay Lake, Florida.
