      Generally, if I'm storing files OUTSIDE, i'm not putting anything important in them....

          That's one way to get rid of files.
          Growing older is manditory
          Growing up is however, optional

            While it's still reasonable to suppose that these files were already slated for demolition (30-year old maintenance records for long-gone attractions, anyone?), strange things tend to happen to old records.

            Having worked in accounting for over two decades, I've gotten somewhat used to the attitude of "it's just beancounter stuff" that surrounds the financial records of a company -- stuff that records what the company owns, who might have claims against it, and who stands to benefit.....you know, useless stuff like that.

            It wouldn't unduly surprise me to find out that the reason the stuff was outside was because it was meant to be shipped off to permanent storage for a number of years, and got left on the dock when the delivery person was delayed along his route.

            Such is the nature of accounting, however, that there is usually sufficient redundancy to regenerate just about any sort of records....it's just expensive and complicated to do so. [It might be noted that this same redundancy makes it very difficult to design a completely undetectable financial fraud.....but also ensures that detection of fraud while it is in process is very rare.]

            Lest anyone think that there might be anything of current interest in the files, however, there is one major factor that argues against this: they were physical, paper documents. Almost everything of any consequence these days is in an email, on a spreadsheet, or in a ledger. A fire could burn every bit of processed wood pulp on Disney property, and 99%+ would be reprinted off "the system" within a short period of time.

            Which leads us back around to the question of how the fireworks and paper products ended up together....
