Disney Sunday: Abandoned Treasure Cay

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard of the infamous Abandoned by Disney creepypasta about an island resort that Disney secretly built and abandoned under mysterious circumstances. Of course, that resort doesn't really exist because Disney never built such an island resort.
