There are so many people that dump the ashes of loved ones inside of Disneyland and Disneyworld that the theme parks have a code and procedure for it.
Disney employees will radio for a “HEPA cleanup” when a crew is needed to bring in an ultra-fine high-efficiency particulate air vacuum cleaner, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
Stop us if you’ve heard this story before: Disneyland and Disney World are favorite spots for loved ones looking for an unorthodox and macabre place to scatter the ashes of the recently departed.
People sneak ashes into Disneyland by putting them in pill bottles, makeup compacts, and, well, any other container you can think of. They then scatter the human remains on It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribean, Dumbo, and, of course…
“The Haunted Mansion probably has so much human ashes in it that it’s not even funny,” a Disneyland custodian told paper.
Officials stress this is not allowed and guests who attempt it will be kicked out of Disneyland. An Anaheim Police official told The Journal that while deputies had been called out due to guests scattering ashes, they couldn’t recall anyone being arrested for it.
