Show synopsis Waking Walt is a spellbinding take on one of America's most enduring urban legends. Could it be true; Walt Disney was never cremated and buried at Forest Lawn as the official story goes? Imagine that, for nearly 40 years, the great entertainment genius has been in cryonic suspension, waiting to return when a cure for his lung cancer is found. Now, an experimental drug being tested looks like the answer. The waiting is almost over. Then, disaster strikes! In a deja vu nightmare for The Disney Company, a ruthless corporate raider launches a takeover attempt, planning to sell off the company's assets to the highest bidders. And this time there are no white knights in Disney's corner. But the Circle is still there, the small group of confidants who helped Walt escape death and who have been guarding him and his secret ever since. Even though they're all old men now, they're not about to let Walt's company be torn apart without a fight. And they know just who can lead them. However, as they scurry to wake him, the Circle discovers there are powerful forces that want the dead to stay dead. But they don't know Walt Disney!
