I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son. I would recommend calling Disney and checking with a CM or even giving to the conservation efforts at Animal Kingdom.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I called Disney World's information number & asked if there's currently any sort of legacy item/product available & the answer was no.

I am so sorry for your loss. The AK conservation fund sounds good, or maybe something to do w/ Make a Wish and the facilities there.

I hope you are able to find something meaningful for your family. Hugs to you!!

thank you all so much for your help and thoughts. My daughter wants us to cut out a small picture of joe (our son) and maybe bury it somewhere in Disney and take a picture near it so that he will be with us when we go again.

I have 2 things a locket with my Dad (who took us on our first visits to DW) and our Sons picture in it, at Walmart they had things you could get pictures etched into and put on a chain and I have my Dad on that take him every Disney trip. Want to get one done with Son's picture just have not emotionally gotten to the point to be able to go do it without breaking down. Some people think its nuts but I dont care. It is the thought and it makes me feel good to do.

I'm sorry for your loss.
We tried a few years back when they were doing the bricks at DLR. No legacy bricks allowed. Also tried in 1998 in DLP - also no legacy bricks. I was told Disney do not want remembrance bricks, pavers, tiles - they want happy, positive messages displayed.
I heard that the photo place in front of S.E in Epcot still sells the legacy tiles (this was going back a year or more). Maybe if you just tell them you want to place a tile with your DS's face you might be in luck. Best Wishes.

For the sake of ideas (regardless of moral or lawful implications), I might do something like you suggested. You could create a tiny "time capsule" sort of memorial container and plant it somewhere in the park that is special to you. I'm talking very small here, like those little metal capsules for carrying pills on a keychain. Place whatever is meaningful to you in it. You might even include a tiny printed note in case the capsule was ever discovered. I probably would not include any personally identifiable information though.

If you want to secretly bury it, I would take a dowel with you about 1 foot long and the same diameter (roughly) as the capsule. Choose a location unlikely to be disturbed. Use the dowel to push vertically into the ground in order to make an indentation. Place the capsule in this shallow hole. Use the dowel again to push the capsule as deep into the ground as possible. You could probably accomplish this very quickly without drawing any attention.

I think this is a great idea. I like the thought of having your loved ones with you in a sense to give you a feeling you're sharing your enjoyment of future stays at WDW.

Burying something at WDW doesn't seem to me to be such a good idea. After all, you never know when the site you chose may be dug up for replanting, repaving or new construction. Not to mention that it seems a bit morbid to me as well as trespassing on property you're not entitled to use for your own purposes.
