The practice of scattering ashes throughout the Disney parks is one of the most famous tales from the Disney parks. People attempt to scatter their loved ones’ ashes throughout the theme parks, but fans also attempt to steal unsolicited goods during their visits.

In 2019, Disney World lost $20,000 in missing pieces from Magic Kingdom attractions, including a set of Peter Pan’s Flight sails and three seats from Space Mountain. A former Disney employee was apprehended attempting to steal clothing and wigs worth $7200 from the Haunted Mansion.

There’s a profitable market for Disney parks memorabilia, which gives many seemingly useless items an incredibly high resale value.
