The article does say this:

Quote:
We've spoken to the airline and the theme park and we've been given permission to take his ashes with us.
But it doesn't say if they've been given permission to scatter them. I sure hope they've worked something out with WDW to maybe have the entire urn buried or something.

These people should watch the movie The Great Escape. It may not be dignified, but that's the way to do this without getting caught.

Illegal in Florida but I gotta admit, I want some of my ashes scattered around in various places through the parks.

My husband said he would put my ashes in his pockets and shake it out, like in Shawshank Redemption. LOL

If WDW allows them to do it, that means that they would have to let everyone bring their dusty loved ones into the park and I just do not see that happening.

This is from DLR:

Quote:
"It used to happen every once in a while at the Haunted Mansion, but now it's happening more," he said.
Without written permission, it's a misdemeanor violation of the state Health and Safety Code to scatter human ashes on private property, but enforcement is difficult. Officials say the ashes pose no health threat.
"I can tell you that we do get people from time to time asking for permission to sprinkle ashes. Our policy is when we are asked for permission, we deny the request," Doughty (with DLR) said. "Beyond that, we don't know."

My DH wants me to take an evening stroll on the beaches of FW, the Poly and the YC/BC. And discretely sprinkle some of him in Bay Lake, the Seven Seas Lagoon, and Crescent Lake. That way he laps up on the shores of MK, DHS and Epcot.

I heard that since Disney purchased Lucasfilms that Disney will be offer packages to guests that includes Freezing in Carbonite. Once you are frozen you will take your place infront of Spaceship Earth, replacing the tombstones.

I'm curious, anyone know why it's illegal to scatter ashes in the state of Florida? If you visited the gulf coast every year on vacation, what would it hurt to scatter them into the water at sunset? There isn't that much left after cremation.

Mom was cremated and the only thing we were told was you had to carry the certificate of death, plus a letter from the funeral home along with identification when you crossed state lines. We scattered her in Tennessee on what used to be her family's land (now part of the Appalachian Trail, but you can still see the foundation of the house).

I do not know Florida's specific law but human ashes are NOT hazardous (as long as there are no other items in the ashes which they usually remove prior to cremation anyway - like a pacemaker). Yes, you can bring ashes with you on an airplane or anywhere else you please. And most airlines even have this question in their FAQs!

But as for scattering ashes in a Disney Park, I believe that is not allowed (there was a whole other thread talking about this matter as well). But again, I don't know the official policy.

Just a thing to remember the Disney parks and Resorts are private property they have final say about what goes on on their property. If they don't want people dumping ashes from diciest family on their property you need to respect that. There have been reports of them closing down rides to have them vacuumed up as they didn't know what it was. As far as anyone else around you that may see you doing it you could be dumping out something dangerous like Anthrax.

You forgot the i, Jeff. BriarRosie. If you're taking a photo of Spaceship Earth with the Leave a Legacy monoliths in front, it has the "Tomb of the Unknown Tourist" vibe. I once read a post on the DIS a long time ago. I'm not sure if it was true, but the poster said they witnessed a little girl crying near the Leave a Legacy area. Her parents asked her why she was crying, and she replied that it was sad to see all the people who died there.

There is no way Disney would allow ashes to be scattered. Can you imagine the number of people that would do this? It would be pointless anyway, they would sweep it up and dispose of the ashes the minute you walked away, unless you dumped them in water.

Disney may have given permission to CARRY the ashes around and the family took that as permission to scatter them.
