A courageous investigative reporter and his team went deep undercover recently to ascertain the grim truth behind the Walt Disney World theme park in Florida.

Shane Perez and his two assistants, Jill and Jake Ramirez, conducted a nighttime raid on the abandoned Bay Lake Island at the self-styled “Magic Kingdom.”

These, of course, are not their real names. To protect their identities, they’ve gone completely dark to avoid the long arm of the powerful Disney corporation.

As you well know, Walt Disney himself has experienced his fair share of controversy. From his well known anti-semitism to his supposedly cryopreserved head, old Walt has been steadily in the news despite having been dead for over fifty years.

For almost a century, the name Walt Disney has been synonymous with animated films, television channels, and child-friendly theme parks that it’s easy to forget that, at one time, the moniker referred to an actual person.

Born in 1901, Walter Elias “Walt” Disney grew to be one of America’s most preeminent business tycoons by the time he died in 1966. Within this short time, he also became a beloved animator, producer, director, screenwriter, and voice actor who just happens to have more Academy Awards and nominations than anyone else in history.

Walt Disney World, the eponymous theme park commonly known as the “happiest place on Earth,” is revered for it’s particular brand of saccharine magic. But according to Shane Perez and his team, it’s a dark magic that’s flowing at Disney World in Florida.

The Walt Disney World Resort is an entertainment complex in Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando and Kissimmee, Florida. Opened on October 1st, 1971, the property covers nearly 39 square miles and features four theme parks, two water parks, twenty-seven themed resort hotels, nine non-Disney hotels, several golf courses, a camping resort, and other entertainment venues.

Next to the park is a smaller island in the middle of Bay Lake, just 300 feet from the shore.

“In the past, it was used as a smaller park, but now the island facility is used for something much more shocking,” said Shane Perez. “And now we are going to let the world know.”
