The cryogenically frozen Walt Disney
    
    One of Orlando’s older legends, there is a myth that Walt Disney had his body cryogenically frozen after his death in 1966 and stored somewhere under Disney World. The rumor was persistent enough to have multiple articles debunking it, but the legend lives on, especially with the underground future cult classic The Further Adventures of Walt's Frozen Head, created  by University of Central Florida film school grad Benjamin Lancaster.
