No, this is widely considered to be a very persistent urban legend. His body was supposedly cremated shortly after his death and there are also legal papers allegedly documenting the fact that his ashes were interred in a marked vault somewhere at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Glendale, California. However, some people have accused two Disney biographies of reinforcing and therefore leading to the spread the rumour of his cryonic preservation by indicating Disney knew of the fairly new technology and was very interested in it.

My personal opinion; I wouldn’t put it past a man like Walt Disney to have known of the technology, to have studied it and to have decided to be preserved in this way. I also wouldn’t put it past him to fake legal papers documenting the fact that his ashes are in a marked grave at a Californian cemetery, whatever the reason may have been for him doing so. Nevertheless, that is all speculation based on nothing but what I have read and heard about the man’s behaviour and personality.

Whatever the case may be, as far as I know, all existing documents must lead to the assumption that no part of his body is in a state of cryopreservation.
