For many generations, Disney has been at the epicenter of all things having to do with childhood and joy. Even adults hold Disney close to their hearts for their fond memories of the classic films, their favorite merchandise, or exhilarating visits to one of the theme parks. However, what may surprise a lot of people, is that Disney has some dark secrets hidden within its past. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most disturbing facts for you to drop your jaw over.
Sunflower the Centaur
Remember this character from Disney’s Fantasia? Probably not, because during the 1960’s (20 years after the film’s release), the scenes were pulled from the movie, as she and another black centaur were depicted cleaning the hooves and hair of the other, light-skinned centaurs. The scenes have since been put back in, but are still edited to leave out Sunflower.
Toy Story Meets The Shining
There are a surprising amount of references to the horror film The Shining within everyone’s favorite movie about talking toys. Besides this creepy picture which shows similar carpet designs, the number 237 is also depicted numerous times throughout Toy Story. That is the same number as the most haunted room in the Overlook Hotel.
The Real Skeleton
A ride through Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride is visually thrilling, with moving depictions of scenes that attempt to capture the life of a pirate pass by the rider as they move along. However, among the various skeletal bodies depicted throughout the ride, there is reportedly at least one real human skull used. Creepy, huh?
