Theme Parks

The Disney theme parks remain the most tantalizing and alluring portions of Walt Disney's legacy. We've all wondered what mysterious and exciting new attractions are being dreamt up by the Imagineers, what ideas never made it past the drawing board, and what little secrets may be hidden in existing rides. Furtive rumors about the parks are plentiful: tales of hushed-up kidnappings and deaths, private clubs, and selective admissions abound. Although the truth usually turns out to be far less exciting than the rumors, many of these stories are as beloved by Disney fans as the parks themselves.
