We like to think that Disney is the happiest place on earth but the shocking truth is there have been plenty of times where there wasn’t any happiness at all. The park has been around for several decades and has had tens of millions of visitors over that period of time. It shouldn’t really come as a shock to you that some tourists have met a less than happy end when you consider these facts. Still, it’s always weird to hear about someone actually passing away at Disney World. This is why we’ve brought you a list of the 10 shocking times tourists died at Disney World. Check out the list and let us know what you think.
The Monorail first debuted in 1959 and it took just seven years before the train claimed a victim. In 1966, a high school graduate tried to sneak into the park by getting on the monorail track.
It appears he didn’t think about the train being in operation and he was struck and killed before he could jump down into the park.
Space mountain is one of those rides that has long been rumored to have claimed lives. Medical reports show only two people have actually died there. Both lost consciousness during the ride but the 73-year-old man and the 55-year-old woman were both said to have pre-existing conditions.
