  • Disney is one of the biggest corporations on the planet, spawning films, television

  • shows, theme parks, merchandising and much, much more.

  • The company is basically everywhere at this point, and with its widespread fame also comes

  • widespread notoriety.

  • Rumors about Disney and its properties range from sweet, to odd, to downright creepy.

  • Let's debunk some popular false facts about Disney you always thought were true.

  • And let's kick things off with a doozy...

  • Walt Disney is cryogenically frozen

  • Rumor has it that Disney founder Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen after his death in

  • hopes that he could one day be resurrected.

  • But though Walt reportedly was interested in the procedure, in 1972 Bob Nelson, the

  • then-president of the Cryonics Society of California, told the Los Angeles Times that

  • Walt missed the boat by just a few days when he died on December 15, 1966 from lung cancer

  • at the age of 65.

  • "The truth is, Walt missed out.

  • He never specified it in writing, and when he died the family didn't go for itTwo

  • weeks later we froze the first man.

  • If Disney had been the first it would have made headlines around the world and been a

  • real shot in the arm for cryonicsThey had him cremated.

  • I personally have seen his ashes."

  • Alas, it looks like the dream of a reanimated Walt will remain just a wish upon a star.

  • Literally Haunted Mansion

  • It's enticing to believe that the classic Disney theme park attraction The Haunted Mansion

  • is actually haunted, especially since the original version in Disneyland sat apparently

  • abandoned for six years after the exterior was completed in 1963.

  • Rumors swirled that the ride didn't open until 1969 because the ride was so scary a guest

  • had a heart attack on it.

  • It's true a death contributed to the delayed openingbut that's because the ride had

  • to be re-imagined after Walt's death occurred during the construction phase.

  • Another rumored death in the Haunted Mansion alleges two high school seniors visiting the

  • park decided to exit the Doombuggy to look for a room called the "Séance Circle."

  • One teen allegedly fell to his death, breaking his neck after plummeting between the tracks

  • and the platform.

  • However, there is also no record of this death, either.

  • The only reported incident on the ride involves a 15-year-old who survived a fall onto the

  • tracks.

  • The plane from Casablanca

  • News reports in 1988 widely claimed that the airplane in the Casablanca section of the

  • Great Movie Ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida is the actual plane from the film.

  • However, that now seems like it might have been fake news.

  • In the book Round Up the Usual Suspects: The Making of Casablanca, the film's assistant

  • director, Lee Katz, explained that the classic ending of the movie was filmed using a fake

  • plane.

  • "This airport was built on a stage with a cutout airplane.

  • And, obviously, we fogged in the set not so much to give it atmosphere but because we

  • had to conceal the fact that everything was so phony."

  • However, later research by the Yesterland website reveals there was an actual plane

  • used for some shots filmed by a second unit without the stars present.

  • So while it's possible the plane did appear in the film, it definitely wasn't in the scene

  • depicted on the Disney World ride.

  • Walt to expect when you're expecting

  • There are variations of this rumor, but they all boil down to one idea: Walt decided to

  • bequeath a large portion of his massive fortune to the first man to become pregnant.

  • However, this is clearly untrue, not only because Walt's will has been made public,

  • but also because there have been pregnant men and they obviously didn't get Disney World

  • as a prize.

  • Sorry, Arnold!

  • "I'm gonna be a momma too!"

  • Walt Disney was an illegitimate child

  • One of the weirdest rumors surrounding Walt Disney claims he was born in the town of Mojacar,

  • Spain and secretly adopted by American parents.

  • According to this far fetched tale, an unmarried woman named Isabel Zadora got pregnant and

  • was pressured by the baby daddy's family to leave Spain.

  • She came to America and put her newborn baby Jose up for adoptionand he was taken

  • in by Elias and Flora Disney, who changed his name to Walt.

  • Residents of Mojacar certainly believe it, saying that a pair of FBI agents came to the

  • village in 1940 to destroy Jose's birth record so the truth about Walt Disney would never

  • get out.

  • Unfortunately for conspiracy theorists, there's absolutely no evidence any of this is true.

  • Walt's daughter, Diane Disney Miller, flatly denied the rumor, telling the Los Angeles

  • Times she found it completely baffling.

  • "I can't understand why it got such wide acceptance

  • Evidently there's a little town in Spain that's supposed to be very pretty; a friend of ours

  • showed us a brochure from there that says 'and among other things, we are also the birthplace

  • of Walt Disney, although he does not choose to acknowledge it.'

  • Apparently the story's been out there for a long time."

  • Disney artists are perverts

  • Depending on who you listen to, Disney animators supposedly are in the habit of hiding very

  • adult jokes in their films, most notably The Little Mermaid and The Lion King.

  • However if you're seeing something dirty, it seems the pervert might be you, because

  • none of the three most famous examples actually happened.

  • Oh, it's true that the VHS copy of The Little Mermaid had a castle in the background with

  • a somewhat phallic image.

  • However, according to Snopes, it was a complete accident, with the artist himself not even

  • noticing it until "a member of his youth church group heard about the controversy on talk

  • radio and called him at his studio with the news."

  • The Little Mermaid was also the target of a lawsuit by a woman who claimed the minister

  • at Ariel's wedding was packing an extra swordfish in his trousers.

  • But it was just an optical illusion caused by the placement of his knees, and after Disney

  • altered the animation to clear up the confusion, the lawsuit was dropped.

  • Finally, during The Lion King, lots of people reported seeing the word sex in the sky during

  • one short sequence.

  • But former Disney animator Tom Sito told The Huffington Post the letters actually read

  • "SFX" as a shout-out to the film's special effects department.

  • Other producers have reportedly confirmed this was the intention of the lettering.

  • So get your mind out of the gutters!
