    Is this true? re: clock at the castle

    A CM told me today that the clock at the castle doorway (the one on the Fantasyland side) - if set for the time that Walt died. The clock appears to be set at 5:03. The death certificate says he died at 9:30 and his funeral was at 5 PM - so maybe the CM was mistaken and it was the time of his funeral instead. Anyone know anything else?

    It is actually reset to commemorate Michael Eisner's time of departure.

    When I was on the Walk in Walt's footsteps tour I was told it was set for the time when Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger and the kingdom fell asleep.

    Aurora, Eisner...basically we're both right. One was a case of a pricked finger and the other was a case of fingered pr- ...well you get it.
