  • Disneyland Resort: Did you know...?

    This is an Idea I thought of where perhaps people can post Disneyland "Did you know's" and other people can read them and perhaps think to themselves "Nope, or Yep"

    You don't actually have to say yes or no.. but if you know something... Add it!


    I'm start with something that most people know....


    Did you know that part of the attraction "Pirates of the Caribbean" goes outside the park boundary?

    Did you know there are multicolored dinosaur eggs down in the seating area of the pizza port next to the Space Mountain enterance?

      Did you know that on opening day the Bank of Main Street was an actual working branch of the Bank of America and that it was the only bank branch in the U.S. that was open seven days a week?

        Did you know that the shape of Disneyland is the same shape as the nametags the CMs wear?

          The big 'baskets' that surround the tall pine-like plants in the esplanade have Mickey shaped bolts holding them together.

            Did you know...

            ...the fort entrance to Frontierland as it looked in 1955 had fake tree stumps around it, answering the question you'd never think to ask - where the settlers got the logs to build it. [source: The Nickel Tour]

            ...the company that built the Golden Zephyr in Paradise Pier positioned it 12 inches further out into the bay than the plans called for, so when construction was completed it was given to Disney for free, no charge. [source: picked up this info when CM's were given a tour of DCA]

            ...When the new DCA water show, World of Color, opens in 2009, it will make use of 1,200 nozzles with 1,200 individually controlled underwater LEDs, plus 300 various lighting fixtures around the lagoon, over 5,000 strobes spread over the area (similar to those used on the castle) and possibly 15,000 more over the Sun Wheel and CA Screamin' (similar to the ending of Luminaria). [source: MiceChat member SparkyLD]

            ...According to FAA regulations, no lasers are allowed to be shot directly into the air. It must point straight forward or at a 3 to 8 degree angle, and in addition, it must have something to hit; so during R...DCT the laser hits the train station at the far end of Main Street, and the F! lasers hit New Orleans Square buildings and the trees behind. [source: same as above]

            ...Walt wanted guests entering Disneyland to feel like VIPs, and since red carpet was impractical underneath the soles of millions of shoes, red bricks were used instead. Attraction posters that line the two tunnels into the park (and once appeared on either side of the Mickey floral) reinforce the idea of stepping into your own movie. No facet of the experience was overlooked to make you feel like a star. [source: Pictures I've seen and knowledge I've gained right here at MC ]

                Did you know that Walt was so drunk one night that he rode a horse down Main Street backwards?

                In fact he was looking up at the sky, and that's when When You Wish Upon a Star was created.

                That's funny right there. I don't care who you are.

                    Did you know that the little store front with the porch on Main Street was once a ladies brassiere shop? The porch is there so that gentlemen could politely wait outside while women shopped for lingerie.

                          Did you know the petrified tree was a gift from Walt Disney to his wife? Then Lillian Disney "regifted" it to Disneyland.

                            POTC was supposed to be a pirate museum that you walked through.

                            Walt changed that idea after the world's fair.
