(WESH) The Magic Kingdom is a popular place for loved ones to scatter the remains of their loved ones.

That’s according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal.

A Disney spokesperson told the Journal that anyone caught spreading ashes will be escorted off the property, but several people told the paper they did it anyway.
