    Cryongenically frozen myth

    For my English class we have to write a paper on an urban legend or myth, and of course I chose to do the urban legend about Walt being frozen under Cinderella's Castle.

    Anybody know any good articles or websites that talk about this? Thanks

    I know that is not true, like yall didn't know that already! I believe he is buried in Glendale, CA but I'm not entirely sure. When you are through with your paper, post it on the boards, I would love to read it.

    Update: I just found a website that shows a picture of his memorial plaque. It also gives some biographical information on Disney.

    Snopes is the best website that I can find on this subject.

    Here's the link: Walt Disney

    Thanks for the link. Yep, Forest Lawn Cemetary in Glendale, CA. Although he was not "buried" exactly, he was cremated. If it turns out to be a good paper I just might share it

    I dont know when your paper is due, so this might be to late.
    On Sunday Night (October 29), TV Land will run a "Myths and Legends" mararthon starting at 7:00 eastern. I'm not exactly sure which episode it is in, but in one of them they will talk about the "Frozen Myth".

    Urban Legends Essay

    Ok, so I'll share the paper even though I kinda flew through it because my professor doesnt like giving instructions for essays for some reason. Hope you all enjoy, even though I'm sure most of you already know this stuff.
