Episodes #281 & #282 - Urban Legends at Disney with Kristi Petersen Schoonover

Overview: I welcome back to the show Kristi Petersen Schoonover.  She's here to share a few not-so-well-known urban legends that include some ghost story-type elements.  Put on your headphones and have a listen!  

Notes: Maybe it is just a trick of the light, but who knows?  The stories are fun, in any case.

Kristi Petersen Schoonover has been going to WDW since the 1970s, and her favorite ride of all time was If You Had Wings—but since that’s long gone, the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, and the Peoplemover top her list. Her collection, Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole, is a collection of ghost stories set in Disney Parks. Her novel, Bad Apple, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in December 2012, and her fiction has appeared in many magazines and anthologies. She lives in the Connecticut woods with her husband, occult specialist Nathan Schoonover, and still sleeps with the lights on.

  1. Just letting everyone know that I made an offer to podcast listeners that they can receive a copy of my Choose Your Own Adventure-style chapbook, "You Were There"--which takes place in WDW in 2001--for free. That offer stands pretty much forever, so if you're listening to this episode even years from its original post date, reach out to me on my Contact Page at and provide me with your snail (postal) mail address.
