    Re: Disney Urban Legends that REFUSE TO DIE!

    Let's see...

    How about if you are born in DL you get a lifetime pass?

    Or wheelchairs get to go to the front of the lines? (Yes, I am tired of that one... I wish this one would die.)

    Re: Disney Urban Legends that REFUSE TO DIE!

    My favorite Diseneyland Myth is that the Matterhorn sinks a half inch every year. I wonder how these things get started.

    I don't know if anyone has pointed this out yet, but I would like to indicate that there is a very good reason why the hearse myth has persisted for so long - because Disneyland adopted it as their official story. Perhaps not knowing it to be likely false?

    My former roommate went on a family trip to WDW and brought me back as a souvenir a model reproduction of the hearse outside of Florida's Haunted Mansion. On the box itself (which I saved) there is a large-print text description of how the hearse outside the original DL Haunted Mansion is the actual hearse which carried Brigham Young to his grave.

    Naturally I took this as a confirmation. Only later when I looked into it did I find that there was no documentation that proved this was Young's hearse - not only that, it was Mormon tradition that the deceased be carried by hand to his grave by pallbearers, not in a hearse. It is likely that Young would have been carried by hand.

    --The C.K. Holliday is built from Walt's 1/8th scale Lilly Belle plans that were simply blown up five times to get to 5/8th scale.

    Actually, I thought that one was true.

    Definitely NOT true, as a comparison of the drawings reveals.

    Of course, in the interest of not getting too technical in their press blurbs, it was probably just easier for Disney to explain it that way. The C.K. Holliday certainly looks to the Lilly Belle for inspiration, but they vary greatly in their details and proportions.

    I understood it played the first 2 sentences of it. Is this incorrect? It was supposedly screwed up for years, but what is the truth then?

    The first two sentences, yes.

    But the "Disney urban legend that refuses to die" is that it is his entire speech.

    The most interesting thing about this thread so far, to me, is the fact that some of these legends have been perpetuated by Disney itself.

    Well of course it is, it is in the basement...

    This is the urban legends thread, and none of these are urban legends.

    I read on doombuggies that there was a woman who spread the ashes of her son inside the HM after being told not to by CM's. Now the boy, who wears a red sweatshirt haunts the ride.

    That isn't a legend either, that is true too. I remember seeing that on the local news.
