Sorry.  It’s quite as interesting or homicidal as the title may make it sound.

Possible Scattering of Human Remains on Disney Rides Reported

Disneyland workers were recently forced to close the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction after a ride security camera caught a woman apparently dumping human remains, in what may be a growing trend.

Workers at the Anaheim theme park spotted the woman sprinkling an unidentified substance into the water on the “Pirates” ride. Anaheim police were notified of the incident.

The woman told Disney park workers that the substance she dumped was baby powder, but officials are investigating the possibility that she sprinkled human ashes, Local 6 reported.

Some Disney watchers said park-goers tell them that people smuggling in the cremated remains of their loved ones and then sprinkling ashes on rides has been going on for a while.

They said it started at the Haunted Mansion, but now the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride is growing in popularity.

Al Lutz, who runs Miceage.com, told KABC that it is not unusual for people to scatter a loved one’s remains at the happiest place on earth.

Disney officials said they were unaware of any confirmed ash-scattering incidents in the park and didn’t believe it to be a problem, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Park officials said there was no real way of knowing if cremated remains were dumped into the “Pirates” ride.

The family of my friend who passed away suddenly a year ago planned on scattering her remains in Disney later this month. I dont’ know whether or not that plan is still in motion, but when I spoke to them in January, that was what they were going to do.

Not on Pirates though smile

God forbid anyone scatter my ashes in the “It’s a Small World” ride…. I’d have to haunt the place just because of the damned song!

“... it had to be disposed of very discreetly because it had a different smell from the surface sand, and the dogs could pick it up.” Other men would create a diversion to distract the guards. They were always walking around the wire or watching from the control towers or “goon boxes,” as we called them. Anyway, we’d pull the drawstrings and scuff it around and mix it into the ground. Sometimes we put the dirt in parts of the building, like the attic or hollow walls. That was more dangerous because they could find it easier.

Why? They’d never give it.

If my children scattered my ashes at somewhere like Disneyland I’d personally curse the bloodline for making my final resting place somewhere so bloody crass LOL

I can’t imagine what would ever possess my kids to spread my ashes in Disneyland.  I’m sure they are much more likely to just dump them in the ocean or use them as mix in a potted plant.

I would think one would prefer to be among the foliage and integrate into the earth rather than the mansion or pirates ride where you’ll eventually get flushed to the sewer sytem or vacuumed and end up in the dump.
