“Whistleblowers” Claim Disneyland Part of CIA Mind Control Project

Disneyland Mind Control Conspiracy Theory

Over its near-70-year lifespan, Disneyland has been referred to as a “hypnotic” place, with many a critic semi-jokingly citing “brainwashing” measures as the reason so many people would spend so much money to go back and visit “The Happiest Place On Earth” over and over again.

It seems that Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California–and the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida–, has always been the setting for many a conspiracy theorist’s bedtime story. But there are a few people who sincerely believe that there is something sinister going on in the Magic Kingdom.

According to some “whistleblowers,”

“Disneyland is one of the most common locations for MKULTRA-related Mind-Controlled programming.”

MK-ULTRA is a real declassified CIA program that took place between 1953 and 1973 and focused on “behavioral modification” research that essentially studied how drugs can be used to manifest mind control.

According to the U.S. Senate’s Select Intelligence Committee, which addressed the program in a special joint hearing with the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research in 1977, said,

“The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over 30 universities and institutions were involved in an “extensive testing and experimentation” program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.” Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to “unwitting subjects in social situations.””

Now, it should be noted that these claims remain baseless. No Disney Theme Park or Resort is mentioned as being involved with this secret program, and the program was said to have been discontinued. But, of course, conspiracy theorists don’t buy it.

Disneyland Park does appear to provide the perfect breeding ground for the conspiracy theorist. After all, it is a closed, safe environment where they state at the entrance, “here you leave the world of today,” offering a wide variety of food and drink options and even providing accommodations for overnight stays. Coined “The Happiest Place On Earth,” Guests continue to testify that there is a sense of euphoria they feel that is not found anywhere else in the world.

But, I guess some people are not satisfied with the simple idea that there is such a level of entertainment excellence that can garner such a “drug-high” reaction from Guests naturally.
