    Snoop's Disney related Urban Legends

    Friend of mine sent me a link to something called Snoops, apparently they compile urban legends and try to qualify them:

    http://www.snopes.com/disney/disney.asp?music=off

    No surprises in most catagories but thought I would share them on here too (most of you already know these very well):


    The Disney theme parks remain the most tantalizing and alluring portions of Walt Disney's legacy. We've all wondered what mysterious and exciting new attractions are being dreamt up by the Imagineers, what ideas never made it past the drawing board, and what little secrets may be hidden in existing rides. Furtive rumors about the parks are plentiful: tales of hushed-up kidnappings and deaths, private clubs, and selective admissions abound. Although the truth usually turns out to be far less exciting than the rumors, many of these stories are as beloved by Disney fans as the parks themselves.

    Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev was denied permission to visit Disneyland in 1959.
    The actual plane from the film Casablanca is part of The Great Movie Ride at Disney-MGM Studios.
    The newly opened Haunted Mansion closed after a guest suffered a fright-induced heart attack.
    Walt Disney's face appears on one of the singing busts in the Haunted Mansion's graveyard.
    The horse-drawn hearse in front of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion is the actual hearse used to carry Brigham Young's body.
    Children have been abducted from Disney parks by kidnappers.*
    Matterhorn mountain at Disneyland houses a basketball court.
    Disneyland's Skyway was permanently closed because a guest fell from one of the cabins. Women bare their breasts for the camera on Splash Mountain. Costumed cast members molest Disneyland guests.

    Yeah I read that stuff years ago. I like it though . Heck my teacher showed it to us in class on the projection screen and we laughed at the little mermaid video thing and the nude woman picture in The Rescuers.

    Ah yes, the urban legends are loads of fun to read.

    The Skyway thing was planned by the guy, though...just another reason to sue Disneyland. Idiot. Had he not jumped out of the cabin, the ride would probably still be there.

    And to my understanding, the "basketball court" is more like a half-court. But hey, still counts

    AHAHAHAH with the wording of "snopes" as "snoop's" in the tittle I thought this had to do with the artist Snoop Dogg

    I like snopes, it's great for all of those internet rumor e-mails that go around, and I've always liked the company ones (like Disney and coke)

    Me too! And I was all over it until I saw it was about snopes.com

    My hubby always calls this "snoops" and I'm always so irritated by it and find that I can't stop myself from correcting him and saying, "It's snopes." Then he can be irritated, too.

    Anyway, I used to always get those stupid chain emails and reply to all with a link to the false story on Snopes but it got old quickly. I love reading through the Disney ones, though, I had no idea about most of the deaths until reading that a few months ago.

    To me, it looks only as big as the key (or "the paint" as they call it now, or the "3-second zone").
