#DCAtrivia Here is some fun with names. The Hyperion bridge was designed after and named for the real Hyperion bridge in Glendale. The Hyperion Theater, home to the Aladdin show, never existed. It is styled after the Los Angeles Theater and the name remembers Hyperion Street which was a Walt Disney Studio location. The Carthay Circle Theater is designed after and named for the real theater where S  More...

Since I was so excited to have learned so much about DLR and DCA this weekend, thought I'd share some trivia bits now and then. Other CMs, please feel free to join in with things from your area. 1- when entering Buena Vista St, you are transported to LA in 1923. By the end of Buena Vista St, you are in LA in 1937. #DCAtrivia

The bride that you cross under is the "timeline." The area before is 1923, with the buildings and designs. After the bridge is 1937 with the more Art Deco style. - idoit4mickeyCM  26.4 #6162 9:52AM
I have to go underneath a bride? Is she bowlegged? - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #180 11:34AM
@ dodger ears Lmao! Don't look up! - stevesdisneyprincess  141.0 #2837 10:56PM
OH! or how paradise bay acts like a real bay! It may be hard to notice but the water does rise and fall throughout the day as it would in a real bay. So in the morning the water is shallow, middle of the day it'll be full, and in the evening it will be shallow again :) - CMallyg92  108.7 #3414 2:37PM
I've noticed that before and thought I was crazy!!! - MousekaNinja  422.4 #500 2:39PM
I noticed that but it didnt click until I just read this! - ambear72  192.1 #2061 10:47PM
If I remember correctly there used to be a wave maker that also sent swells across the bay. - Boundin  652.1 #295 10:56PM
Thanks for sharing, great info! - Admin 11:33AM
