We have very sad news to report.  We have learned from Orlando Sentinel that there was a dead body found inside a burned vehicle on Walt Disney World Resort property.  The vehicle was found near Disney’s Fantasia Gardens & Miniature Golf course.  This miniature golf course on property is also located close to Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort. The body was found on Saturday morning, August 18th.  Deputies were called just after 4 AM to assist Reedy Creek Fire Department as they were controlling the fire coming from the vehicle.

After the fire was completely extinguished that is when the officials were able to see that there was a body inside.  The investigation is ongoing and there haven’t been any further details released at the time of this posting.  The identity of the individual has yet to be shared.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about this tragic event.  Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the individual.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
