An Old Disney Mass Burial Promotion Is Making the Rounds Again, but Is It Real?

If you’re here reading this, you love Walt Disney World. We all do! So much so that we never want to leave. Often, we go home, and although we are physically not at the “most magical place on Earth” any longer, emotionally and mentally, we never leave. Well, what if we could stay at Walt Disney World for all of eternity, even after we die? According to an old post made back in 2022, that dream is a reality (sort of), with Disney offering a promotional mass burial for their most dedicated guests.

The idea of being included in a mass burial isn’t as far-fetched as you may think. Both former Disney CEO Bob Chapek and current CEO Bob Iger have made long-term living at Walt Disney World a reality with Golden Oak and “Storyliving by Disney.”

If you need further proof that there’s an actual market out there for individuals who want to spend their physical eternity at Walt Disney World, look no further than the Haunted Mansion, where it’s not just fictional ghosts who hole up forever.

For years, a serious concern at the Haunted Mansion has been the dumping of ashes by family and friends of deceased loved ones. The problem has existed at both the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in California.

However, today, we’re not talking about comical haunts; we’re talking about a real-life concept of Disney creating a mass burial promotion for dedicated guests who hope to stay as close to the magic as possible, even in death.

The news comes as no surprise to many of our devoted readers. We’ve discussed the story before back in 2022, but a new Instagram Reel is currently breathing new life into the concept of being buried at Disney World or Disneyland.

Republished 21 hours ago by The Onion, the news promises Lightning Lane selections to all guests, for a minimal fee, who want to be included in a mass burial in which customers can be buried ALIVE!

In what officials at the entertainment conglomerate described as a “thrilling opportunity for fans of all ages,” the Walt Disney Company announced Friday the opening of a new mass grave in which customers can be buried alive with their favorite Disney-owned characters.

“We know that people absolutely love the joyous experience of our theme parks, so why not let them spend eternity with Mickey, Minnie, Snow White, Elsa, Anna, and the rest of their favorite pals,” said Disney CEO Bob Chapek, explaining that a $109 entrance fee would give fans access to the sprawling 200-acre open pit, which will also leverage properties from Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel as it seeks to become a final resting place for a broad cross-section of media consumers.

“At Disney’s Eternal Kingdom, fans will line up and await their turn to be thrown into a hole in the ground where, as the dirt is shoveled over their still-living bodies, they can slowly suffocate and die with the likes of the Hulk, Winnie the Pooh, Kylo Ren, Buzz and Woody, or the entire ensemble cast of Encanto. Disney Genie Plus users can purchase a Lightning Lane selection and skip the line to pass into the next world even faster—all while choking to death on pixie dust that will be shoveled into their mouths by Tinker Bell herself.”

So, yes, this isn’t the same as being buried near Disney once you’ve passed, but the idea of being buried alive indeed increases your chances of being buried the other way – eventually.

Eagle-eyed viewers of the reel will quickly note the outdated references to Disney CEO Bob Chapek, who is no longer at the helm of The Walt Disney Company. That’s probably your first red flag. Secondly, of course, Disney isn’t going to promote a mass burial service, especially to be buried alive with Disney-owned characters in attendance. Lastly, the reel comes from The Onion, a well-known satirical news outlet out of Chicago.

So no, despite Walt Disney and Roy Disney being buried not far from Disneyland, in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, and the clear chuckle the writers at The Onion had at Chapek’s well-known money-milking tactics, no, you cannot be buried at Disney – alive or dead.
