The Ghost of George and PotC

Walt Disney World: What have you heard?

From Andrew Dougherty

Back when Pirates was being built in Orlando, there was a worker named George. I have heard George was a welder and had to weld things in the burning city scene. He was required to climb up really high, however up there George lost his footing and fell to his death. I have read people who have talked to CMs and the CMs have acknowledged the George. Also, I have also heard that upon opening and closing the ride for the day, CMs have to say good morning and good night to George or else more breakdowns happen frequently.
