Q: I’ve heard many times, from varied sources, that Walt Disney was cryonically frozen and put into storage under The Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland. Can you speak to this?
Yes, I can. I don’t know how such wild stories get started. There is
absolutely no truth to this. That fact is that Walt’s carcass is and
has been located at DisneyWorld in Florida. What’s more, for many years
it has been on display, hidden in plain sight, if you will, at various
locations throught the "World." His most recent public appearance was
as the "Iceman" in Ice Station Cool at Epcot. Unfortunately the Ice Station is now closed for renovations and Walt will be "backstage" for a while.
A new blog called Inside Disney is a humorous look at all the rumor-mongering. urban legends, and just plain wrong ideas people hear about The Walt Disney Company and its many properties.
Btw, I hear Michael Eisner’s toupee is now topping the head of one of the Pirates in Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
