For holding the moniker of "Happiest Place on Earth," Disneyland has a reputation for freaking people out. There are more than a few less than family friendly conspiracy theories surrounding Disney's theme parks that have surfaced since Disneyland first opened on July 17, 1955.

Among Disney's many urban legends, which have largely been proven false, (the park's scents control your mind, cats are released to catch mice every night, Walt Disney's frozen head is located underneath Disneyland, among others) one particularly grim rumor has recently been confirmed to be true.

Disneyland and Walt Disney World are among the most popular locations in the world to scatter a loved one's ashes. According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, theme park custodians claim that so many guests have managed to smuggle in ashes (using techniques such as hidden plastic bags, makeup kits, or prescription pill bottles) that a code word was eventually developed to indicate when a scattering took place.

"The Haunted Mansion probably has so much human ashes in it that it's not even funny," says one Disneyland custodian.

Ah, jeez. Has that ride not plagued children with enough emotional turmoil?

Disney has been adamant to attack this trend in their theme parks with a zero-tolerance policy.

A spokesperson for the company told the Journal, "This type of behavior is strictly prohibited and unlawful. Guests who attempt to do so will be escorted off property."

Not only will ash-scatterers be forced to leave the park, but their intentions to give Nana a final resting place in the "Happiest Place On Earth" will be rendered useless after the custodial crew sucks up her remains with a vacuum before promptly disposing them in the garbage.

Unless you want to potentially ruin your own and everyone else's time at Disneyland, we recommend broadening your selection of final resting places for your cremated loved ones. How about Six Flags?

What do you think? Is spreading a loved one's remains in a place as beloved as Disneyland a sweet gesture, or would you rather not worry about possibly inhaling a dead person's ashes as you ride down Space Mountain? Let us know in the comments below!
