Disney urban legends

TheFW.com posted this educational story about 7 persistent urban legends about Disney.  Here are 3 examples...
The Rumor: The oft-repeated legend states that Walt Disney arranged to have his body placed in cold storage after his death with the intention of being revived sometime in the future when medical science was up to the challenge. The details of the story range from the plausible notion that the removal of a cancerous lung more than a month before his death had Disney thinking about whether he would live long enough to complete his unfinished projects to the ludicrous idea that his body is currently being stored beneath the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland.
The Rumor: Disney prevents anyone from being declared dead while on their property allowing Disney to claim that no one has ever "died" at the parks.
The Rumor: Finland once banned Donald Duck because he doesn't wear pants.
  For the "truth" of these rumors and the other 4 urban legends, check out the story.
