    Re: Need help tracking down a Disneyland Urban Legend

    Hmm, ten years ago. That's 2006 -10.. 1996. Oh, forget my idea.. I have Mouse Tales and it lists the deaths.

    I agree with most of your comments, characters wouldnt be out at night. Who would want to in a large costume, hard to see out of (I think?) at night, with crazy high school graduates. (No offense to you seniors)

    I wouldn't.

    We're always having fun in the Fun and Games Lounge. Care to visit us?

    Re: Need help tracking down a Disneyland Urban Legend

    The version I heard was that they set fire to the costume and the character jumped in the castle moat. Nothing about drowning though.

    But it would have been a VERY long time ago because I heard that back in 98.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I think if someone died it would have at least been in the paper. And those can pretty much be looked up online or in archives.

    I was working that night. It was strange to see the maintenance boat out and running around, you could tell they were looking for something in the water.
    The entertainment on the Rivers of America was delayed that night for about 45 minutes. When they did start there set the lead singer made a comment something like this "If you see someone floating by just wave hello"
    So who is that guy on the left?

    Re: Need help tracking down a Disneyland Urban Legend

    My school was banned in the late 1970s and mid 1990s, for rowdiness and "capturing" Tom Sawyer Island. I don't know the details as it is shady, but some how they commandeered a raft (and my school is all boys too, so I could see), but there I have never heard of a malicious drowning.

    I've heard of a young boy and his older brother (this story was in Mouse Tales) who hid on Tom Sawyer's Island and tried to swim back, the older one drowned and the younger one dogpaddled until he was picked up, but was unrelated to GradNight.
