    Ok. Thought I recognized that Tinker Bell one. It was taken from the DisneyLies.com, a satirical Disney site filled with mostly lies. I'm still kinda wondering if they are telling the truth when they say it's a website.

    Here's what it says in their Urban Legends section:

    The Legend: The mysterious briefcase in Pulp Fiction contained Tinkerbell.
    Behind the legend: According to notes found in the waste paper basket of Quentin Tarantino, this is true. The contract between Disney and Miramax required the latter to release at least one film each year that featured a Disney character in a significant role, and this was the company's way of meeting that obligation for 1994.


    Same thing goes for the PotC question... DisneyLies.com as well:

    The Legend: Parts of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl were filmed within the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.
    Behind the Legend: Yep. And
    The Haunted Mansion was filmed in the Haunted Mansion. Same deal with the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House. A big chase scene from Speed was filmed on the Autopia, too. Really.

    Somebody out there is just going about stealing urban legends from a site filled with lies....

    That is so good...

    Are any of the urban legends about Matterhorn accidents actually true? I just hear so many different altering view-points and stories, and of course Disney would never officially (And don't legally have to) release such information to the public.

    Isn't there a rumor that the reason the skyway was shut down in WDW was because someone fell out of it?

    I had heard that Pulp Fiction/Tinkerbell one before, but I still think it was just the ever elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, caught and hidden in the suitcase...

    I'm not 100% sure on this, but I believe a Cast Member was killed while working on the platform where the Skyway had the turn. From what I was told, he was working and didn't know the cars were moving (this was before the park opened for the day) and he was knocked off the platform.

    My favorite one is the 2004 Annual Disney Trivia Quiz. The writer must be very warped!

    One of my more recent DisneyLies favourites:

    Will Disneyland be making changes to the Pirates ride so that it is a different ride at night? (2/16/05)

    A recent online article revealed that Disney is indeed considering adding to the beloved Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, giving it the capability to turn into a very different attraction after the sun goes down. Inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (and its upcoming sequels, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearls, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl III), Imagineers have drawn up preliminary plans for a ride modification which would make Pirates a horrific ride after the sun goes down.

    The plan is to expand the ride's path into the current boat storage area, through unused (and badly flooded) areas of New Orleans Square's underbelly, and out to the Rivers of America (much as Splash Mountain briefly enters the river). In this new ride section, to be used only at night, horrifying dead pirates with flesh hanging from their bones would attack passing guest boats, firing cannons and throwing knives while singing a "corrupted" version of the famed Pirates song. In scenes unfit for small children, skeletal pirates will sell their captives into slavery and chase after women for food they crave but can not enjoy. When guests reach the Rivers of America, they will find themselves face-to-face with the Columbia, decked out in pirate gear, and firing upon them with all guns.

    Initial plans call for adding some 600 feet of ride experience, adding 90 animatronic figures, and adapting all current figures so that they can switch to scary "night mode" on command. An alternative, "Eisner safe" proposal has also been drawn up which includes putting scary hats on existing animatronic figures (including pigs and cats) and instructing cast members to scowl. It is expected that a final okay for these modifications will not be given until guest reaction to the "it's a small world" nighttime overlay "werewolves of the world" can be measured.

    I gotta say I got about 2 lines in to that article and then spit the Diet Coke out of my mouth from laughing. I love the Eisner version, also...

    My Mom used to tease me whenever we saw the Dickie Dee Ice cream cart that Walt was frozen inside. I could never bring myself to get an ice cream bar from one of those things since.

    My all-time favorite part of Disneylies.com:

    In 2003, DisneyLies.com began collecting all of Michael Eisner's most inspirational, most pro-Disney quotations. These are quotes that will make you feel good about the company's leadership and about the future of Disney's film and theme-park businesses. The complete list is below. Enjoy!
