CreepyPasta Story Review: Abandoned by Disney

CreepyPasta is quite possibly the largest source of user-generated stories of various kinds. However, reading a story can be both a terrible and an exciting experience depending on which story you’re reading. To help you decide what are some of the stories that are worth reading — and some that aren’t — I’m starting this series where I’ll briefly talk about a particular story without containing any spoiler.

I’m quite excited to kick off the series with a story that’s as fascinating, and dark as it gets. The story is titled Abandoned by Disney, The story gained so much popularity that the author started a series. I haven’t read the later stories of the series, but I will do so and write reviews here.

Disney is one of the few world-famous names that instantly make us remember some of the most iconic characters. Even after Disney and Pixar started working together, many characters have seen the light of day and found a place in our hearts. But the character that this particular story talks about is one of the most popular, most recognized, and most fun face in the history of Disney: Mickey Mouse.
