New Film Shot at Walt Disney World Without Permission: Walt’s Frozen Head

It was bound to happen. Love it or hate it, the film “Escape from Tomorrow” was a financial success, as many people watched it just to see how it could be shot without Walt Disney World’s permission. Well yet another movie has been shot at Walt Disney World without the Mouse’s approval: “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head!”

Walt's Frozen HeadI recently spoke with “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head” director Ben Lancaster about what it was like going in the parks incognito. “We shot at Walt Disney World for about three days of the 20 days or so of production,” said Lancaster. “But considering how much faster we were moving those days, it makes up about a quarter of the total runtime of the film.”

Walt's Frozen Head

“Walt’s Frozen Head” follows the story of a Disney Cast Member who stumbles across a cryogenic storage unit in the Magic Kingdom utilidor to find Walt stored and frozen beyond the reach of the public.

As a birthday present to Mr. Disney, he is snuck out of the utilidors and into the park to experience modern day Walt Disney World for the first time. The trailer takes a humorous look at how Walt would react to FastPass, height requirements and even My Magic Plus. Check it out below.

“Walt’s Frozen Head” isn’t expected to be released until 2017, but you can follow the progress at!

    I thought “Escape from Tomorrow” was buried by Disney. Nice to know it is around. I looked it up and apparently easily available on Netflix, Amazon, and iTunes. Labeled as horror. It certainly fits.

    That preview for “Walt’s Frozen Head” is ridiculous. It is a running joke. It is an insult to Walt. Another shameless exploitation film. I guess the reveal of the head won’t happen until the end? Maybe it’ll be a alien monster.
