Go To

A 2018 guerilla science-fiction comedy shot incognito at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, the Further Adventures of Walt's Frozen Head explores the age-old Urban Legend of Walt Disney being cryogenically preserved deep within the park's Utilidors. Every year, Walt (played by original Dreamfinder actor Ron Schneider) is defrosted to see status reports on his company and approve various projects. However, he has never actually seen what became of his Florida Project and after his request is denied by the executives, he recruits a low-level employee named Peter to take him to the surface and sneak him into the Magic Kingdom.

This film contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Actor Allusion: Walt briefly muses about wanting to go to Epcot to ride Journey into Imagination, only for Peter to tell him how its changed.
  • Character Blog: Walt's Head has a Twitter account snarking on current events in the Disney community.
  • Genre Throwback: To Disney's own science fiction comedies of the 1960s and 70s.
  • People Jars: Walt's head exists in a detachable container that can be charged to keep him alive outside of the cryonics lab.
  • Rule of Three: Due to complications with the freezing technology, Walt is only allowed to be thawed out for three days at a time or else risk the re-freezing process failing and truly dying again.
  • Take That!: A lot of humor comes from Walt's reactions to the modern Disney theme park experience.
    • When one of his meetings with the executives breaks, Walt is left to watch an early cut of The Good Dinosaur and is very thankful for Peter coming back to take him out of the lab.
