Q: Did Walt Disney Really Arrange For His Body To Be Frozen After His Death?

A: How many times have you heard this? Walt Disney’s body is currently frozen solid somewhere just waiting for the day when scientists have the ability to re-animate the animator.

The truth of the situation? Walt was not cryogenically frozen after his death. He wasn’t even placed near a fridge; nor were his buttocks or elbows packed away for safe keeping. According to his wishes, Walt Disney was cremated two days after his death on December 15, 1966.

There’s scant evidence, in fact, that Disney even knew that cryogenic freezing existed. (While we’re on the subject, most scientists don’t think it would ever be possible to resurrect a frozen body anyway.) But be sure to give us a call if you ever do open up a huge freezer, and find Uncle Walt just chilling out next to a barrel of Häagen-Dazs. Until then, consider this rumor of rumors officially dismissed.
