    Re: What Your Favorite Disney Myth

    That the Matterhorn will sink if the sub lagoon is drained. (if so, Matterhorn has been rebuilt numerous times overnight) or if you drain RoA, BTMRR will tip over.

    I dont want to know what they will say when they drain the bay at DCA, "The Maliboomer will fall over"

The packaging on the model version of the black hearse in front of WDW's Haunted Mansion states that the actual hearse in front of DL's Mansion is the same that carried Brigham Young to his grave. In actuality, Mormon tradition dictates that the deceased be brought to their grave by hand via pallbearers, and it is more likely this is how Young was borne to his grave. There is no record anywhere that a hearse of any kind was used.
          Mormon tradition says nothing about how a body can be transported. Brigham Young specified in his will that he wanted to be carried by pall bearers, not a hearse. It isn't a Mormon thing, just a Brigham Young thing.

It also requires a taller individual and your butt isn't exactly touching the seat (half sit/stand but under lap bar). IF you are caught it could potentially be a manual E-Stop and shut the ride down/boot you from the park... but it is possible!
          Okay, if you don't break the park rules, it's impossible to hit your hands. If you do break the park rules then it's possible to surf down the matterhorn.

                The Seven Dwarfs' personalities were based off seven stages of cocaine addiction.

                So I heard.

                      I always understood that they were dipped in plastic and then had their feet nailed down in Its a Small World.

                      My favourite myth:
                      A guest's head was severed by standing up on Space Mountain

                      This Disney urban legend has been around for quite some years now. However, it does have some basis in fact. When Disney Imagineers were testing Space Mountain they had a test dummy standing up on the ride. As a result of this the test dummy's head was severed from it's body.
                      Now I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic !

                        The joke between CMs is that the ROA has so many chemicals and bacteria that if you "fall" into the river that you need a Tetnus shot! LOL, :lol:

                        Or, I think I mention it somewhere on the board, but the reason why Walt Disney wanted to do the two finger point is because if he pointed with one finger, his cigerette would fall out, hahaha!!

                              My sister-in-law who worked at the French Market in the early 80s told me that the wrought iron on the second floor of the Haunted Mansion is made out of plastic so that maintence wouldn't have to keep repairing too much rusting wrought iron.

                              I believed her for a long time. But now I don't think she is correct.

                                Apparrently, that wrought-iron pattern is still commercially available.

                                    Don't forget that The Haunted Mansion was so scary that a news reporter died and they had to close it down and refubish the entire ride.=D thats funny)

                                        I think that would be an improvement.

                                          That none of the 'Disneyland Deaths' had the victims pronounced dead in the park. I always get a kick out of that one.
