When I told my dad I wanted my ashes scattered down Main Street he reminded me that somebody would be right along sweeping me back up again
VA is one of those states that don't require a casket. Or at least it was in 1987 when my dad passed. They put the ashes in a sturdy box (cardboard) and we later took them to Canada and spread them on the banks of the St. John River where he was born.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 116145

Disney officially does not allow ashes to be scattered.
However, I have friends who are CMs and when one died suddenly :( the other took her ashes and scattered them (privately) in certain places throughout WDW. So, yes it happens.
I told Jim to take a cruise and when he sees dolphins , let those ashes go .
How on earth would you get them through the security checks though?Originally Posted by Johnie, post: 116253
Here you go
Transporting the Deceased
Traveling with Crematory Remains
We understand how painful losing a loved one is, and we respect anyone traveling with crematory remains. Passengers are allowed to carry a crematory container as part of their carry-on luggage, but the container must pass through the X-ray machine. If the container is made of a material that generates an opaque image and prevents the security screener from clearly being able to see what is inside, then the container cannot be allowed through the security checkpoint.
Out of respect to the deceased and their family and friends, under no circumstances will a screener open the container even if the passenger requests this be done. Documentation from the funeral home is not sufficient to carry a crematory container through security and onto a plane without screening.
You may transport the urn as checked baggage provided that it is successfully screened. We will screen the urn for explosive materials/devices using a variety of techniques; if cleared, it will be permitted as checked baggage only.
Some airlines do not allow cremated remains as checked baggage so please check with your air carrier before attempting to transport a crematory container in checked baggage.
Crematory containers are made from many different types of materials, all with varying thickness. At present, we cannot state for certain whether your particular crematory container can successfully pass through an X-ray machine. However, we suggest that you purchase a temporary or permanent crematory container made of a lighter weight material such as wood or plastic that can be successfully X-rayed. We will continue to work with funeral home associations to provide additional guidance in the future
Traveling with Coffins
Please check with air carrier to determine their policies and procedures.
ok and in Florida a casket is not required for cremation. However there must be some sort of container to put the body in.
Thanks Johnie......but I meant security at the parks
