Discover the darkness lurking in the shadow of the magic. When you think of Orlando, you think of Mickey Mouse, of Cinderella’s Castle, of the nearby beaches and the concrete-jungle attractions that make the city so famous. You rarely hear of the city’s ties to secret societies, of the murders that took place in tunnels beneath the streets of downtown, or rumors of the connections the city’s residents have to the UFO sightings that make Florida the state with the second-most alien encounter reports in the country. Rumrunners, vaudeville performers, and the ghost of Ted Bundy – Orlando’s magic doesn’t just come from the happiest place on earth.
