Disney theme parks attract people celebrating engagements, birthdays and even weddings, but employees revealed the "The happiest place on Earth" is also popular for something else.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the custodians of Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, claim that the famous parks are a favorite place for guests to disperse the ashes of their loved ones.

In fact, the store reports that it is so popular that the occasion guarantees its own code: HEPA cleaning.

Special encryption, which refers to the use of an ultra-thin vacuum cleaner, is used at least once a month, the janitors told the Journal. Which leads to visions that grandma or grandpa spend eternity inside a Hoover.

Reportedly, guests sneak the ashes of their relatives in plastic bags or pill bottles hidden inside purses or backpacks. Once inside, visitors distributed them throughout the landscape of the park, flower beds and water attractions, including Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a small world.

As to Haunted Mansion? It seems to be the most popular place where families leave their loved ones.

"The haunted mansion probably has so many human ashes that it's not even funny," a Disneyland concierge told the Journal.

When it happens, employees inform guests that the trip is temporarily closed due to "technical difficulties".

Shanin Himebrook, 41, of Missouri, told the agency that she left her father to rest near the doors of Disney World earlier this year to remember their summer trips together.

"He was not my father tired of a graveyard shift (at Disney World)," he said. "He said:" Let's get you the mouse's ears! To sew your name! "It's like:" I love this dad! Can we stay forever? "

USA TODAY turned to Disney representatives for comment, but a spokesperson told the newspaper that "this type of behavior is strictly prohibited and illegal" and that any guest caught in the act will be "escorted off property" .

The sergeant of the spokesman of the Anaheim police department. Daron Wyatt confirmed to the publication that the officers responded to calls "related to the ashes" earlier in Disneyland. The Orlando Police Department has not responded to the request for comments from USA TODAY.
