    Really Bizarre Question...

    So I was in science class and everyone was talking about Walt Disney being frozen. I consider myself knowledgeable on the subject of Walt Disney (10+ page research paper on him), the Disney Company and the Walt Disney World theme park...

    I was wondering: is that rumor true? Is he really frozen? I've heard that he is frozen and is kept inside "the Castle" (not really sure which) but I'm fairly sure that's not true...

    Hopefully someone on this site knows the answer - it's really been bugging me these past few days!!!

    The Disney family crypt contains Walt Disney, Lillian Bounds Disney (his widow), Robert Brown (son-in-law) and Sharon Disney Brown Lund (daughter).

    If you do a Google search under Disney Family Crypt, you can find a link for a photo of the crypt.

    Go to snopes.com (the website for the truth on urban myths) and do a search for Walt Disney for verification of the above.

    I did the Keys to the Kingdom tour in July and someone asked that question and our tour guide said that he is not frozen. He is buried in I think Glendale, California but they are not allowed to tell which cemetery. I think he was cremated too.
