Urban Legends and Myths


This week I’m going to bring up myths, urban legends and the “if you do this, they’ll do this in return”. You’ve all heard them at some point or another.  The one about Walt being cryogenically frozen beneath the Castle or that The Pirates of the Caribbean is haunted or if you yell “ANDY’S COMING! “ what will happen? I’m not going to say if these are false or not, that’s for you to decide.   But for those of you who have to know if they are true or false will have to check back next week when I’ll reveal which ones are true or not. But feel free to answer below if you know which ones are false or not.


MYTH #1= Yell “Andy’s Coming” when you see Woody and Jessie in the parks and see what happens.


MYTH #2=If a castmember at a Turkey Leg booth chooses you to “gobble like a turkey” and you do, guess what?


MYTH#3=One of the singing bust in The Haunted Mansion is that of Walt Disney himself.


MYTH#4=The plane used in The Great Movie Ride in Hollywood Studios is the actual plane used in the movie Casablanca.


MYTH#5=A man was decapitated on Space Mountain.


MYTH#6=The black areas on the Swan and Dolphin hotels can be removed to accommodate a monorail track if it was ever seemed fit.


MYTH#7=There is a monorail right of way clause in the forms when you buy into the Saratoga Springs Resort.


MYTH#8=Disney doesn’t’ add more monorail track because it cost a $1,000,000 per mile of track.
MYTH#9=There is a private club called “Club 21” located near The Pirates of the Caribbean.


MYTH#10=The first three Disney theme parks opened on October 1st to commemorate the date that Walt Disney was dishonorably discharged from the Army.

    Actually, #1 used to be true, but they no longer do it because it took away from time to meet the kids.
