I reckon having your remains scattered in the “Happiest Place on Earth” beats having your remains sprinkled in the line at the DMV. My fave cremains story, is when David Sedaris allegedly sprinkled the ashes of his forever housebound city kitty on the carpet and vacuumed them up. As you’ll see in the photos, Jack Sparrow, has now been added to the Disney ride that inspired the movie that created his character. Now if Johnny Depp’s ashes get sprinkled in the water on the ride….

Disneyland workers were recently forced to close the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction after a ride security camera caught a woman apparently dumping human remains, in what may be a growing trend.
Workers at the Anaheim theme park spotted the woman sprinkling an unidentified substance into the water on the “Pirates” ride. Anaheim police were notified of the incident.
The woman told Disney park workers that the substance she dumped was baby powder, but officials are investigating the possibility that she sprinkled human ashes, Local 6 reported.
Some Disney watchers said park-goers tell them that people smuggling in the cremated remains of their loved ones and then sprinkling ashes on rides has been going on for a while.
They said it started at the Haunted Mansion, but now the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride is growing in popularity.
Al Lutz, who runs Miceage.com, told KABC that it is not unusual for people to scatter a loved one’s remains at the happiest place on earth.
Disney officials said they were unaware of any confirmed ash-scattering incidents in the park and didn’t believe it to be a problem, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Park officials said there was no real way of knowing if cremated remains were dumped into the “Pirates” ride.
