There have been a lot of Disney fact posts lately-so why not do a Disney fact thread! They are always fun when new people enter the lounge....so what's your favorite Disney fact?

The fact that the old man playing the banjo in Pirates is not some random old man. He is actually A pirate named Jean Laffite. He hid in the Lousiana swamp lands and that's also why the loading dock is called "Laffite's Landing" 😊 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 9:43AM

And the ride, well before they put all the movie stuff in, is a journey through his memories of being a pirate. When you go down the first drop, you are supposed to be descending into his mind and he appears several other places during the ride. The story is also tied in with Haunted Mansion, that's why the weather vane is a ship. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 11:36AM
Oh my gosh! So cool. Where else does he appear in the ride? - BlackCanary86  64.2 #4160 11:48AM
Between these two rides there was supposed to be a crypt. You can still see the top arch of the would be doorway along the wall/bench/sidewalk dividers (don't know how to describe it) between potc and hm. it has a date on top of the arch - Pixarprincess  541.0 #362 11:50AM
I did not know that. Cool - cesium55  531.6 #371 11:51AM
Absolutely correct. It was going to be a tunnel walkway thing linking the attractions into one story. The date is the birth year of the imagineer who came up with it minus 200 years I believe. Every attraction in the parks has a story tied to it. The mansion one is very interesting. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 11:53AM
I've read so much into Pirates! This has to be my favorite thing! I love it!! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 12:13PM
Really?! I had no idea! He still creeps me out, there is banjo music but no banjo.... Also I alway feel like he is watching me like a crazy stalker.... - tiggertwin  331.7 #691 12:58PM
I'd love to hear the haunted mansion story! Can anyone send it to me? - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 1:48PM
The Haunted Mansion story goes that The pirate Capt. Blood built the mansion for his wife and she made him promise to never go out to sea again. He told her that he had to go one last time and he was gone for a long time. When he finally came back they got into a big argument and he ended up killing her. Not sure if he killed her accidentally or out of rage. Well, he was so distraught over her death that it's rumored he hung himself in the gallery.. This is why there is a ship weathervane and the picture of the ship in the portrait hall, and also obviously the hanging man in the gallery is Capt. Blood. =) Disney has added stuff with the bride in the attic and killing her husbands and stuff.. but this is one of the original stories. Enjoy! - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 2:00PM
Very cool :-) - LAFDWifey  81.5 #3792 2:05PM
WOW!! CMJenKWorth will you be my new best friend?! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 2:08PM
Haha.. Sure! I used to be a Mansion Maid.. Loved every second of it. I miss it sometimes. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 2:12PM
Yup I'm claiming you as my new BFF! I want to hear all your stories! Lol - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 2:18PM
I've always wondered if there was something going on with that guy! Thanks for sharing! - DisneylAndy  205.6 #1856 4:19PM
Huh. I always heard that the bride's death was caused by her overprotective father. When the sailor was gone at sea, he came in as she was trying on her wedding dress. He lied to her, telling her that the captain died at sea. She killed herself, then when the captain came back and heard of the news, he hung himself. - snowwannab  733.9 #244 8:19PM
Wow I love both these stories! Thanks for Sharing guys! #extremequality. - NeverlandTink  423.1 #484 9:12PM
Right Tink! I love all this info! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 9:34PM

http://longforgottenhauntedmansion.blogspot.com/2010/09/jean-lafitte-and-mega-theme-temptation.html this is one of probably a few different blogs about the Jean Lafitte story. this one really gets in depth on the story, even more so than what you have learned thus far. check it out!!!! - littleoysterz  242.3 #1393 1:06AM
Wow! Very interesting article! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 2:17AM
Walt passed before the POTC attraction was complete, this was one of his babies and he took pride in it. - GoofyJoe  1906.6 #79 10:38AM
Goofy that is why I love it so much! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 10:50AM
Mine is the one in which iasw opened any Walt had children from different cultures represented and they all poured one gallon of water into the attraction, now when they drain the water they take a gallon of water out to keep the "culture" πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨ - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #660 9:23AM
I didnt know this! Cool!! - vanGoghsStarryNight  37.1 #5128 9:44AM

That's awesome I didn't know this! - ingridd  15.5 #7863 11:33AM
You can find a video of it on YouTube! It's really cool to see walt and all the kids from around the world! - kritomiester  364.1 #592 11:42AM
My mom was actually one of the kids who opened IASW, she poured the water and met Walt, she was about seven years old. - CM_LionGeek  352.9 #626 12:28PM
That's amazing @lion geek! What an awesome thing for yor culture and family - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #660 12:43PM
That is a really cool fact! - proudcanuck  478.6 #417 1:02PM
That's a very cool fact! - LAFDWifey  81.5 #3792 2:04PM

Neato! - Tom  9214.6 #5 4:50PM
@Lion your like MW Royalty! That's so awesome your mom got to meet the beloved Walt! - NeverlandTink  423.1 #484 9:15PM
Walt wanted to make every guest feel important when they entered the park, so he made the walk ways look like the red carpet (hence the red bricks at the main gate). Also, when you go through the tunnels, it symbolizes the curtain rising on a show. Along the sides of the walls, there are attraction posters to show the guests which attractions you'll see in your near future. Finally, the names on the Main street windows symbolize the opening credits of a movie, giving credit to those who made the production possible. - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:23PM
Dole whips give you magic powers - Mouse4life  1293.1 #123 12:40PM
In Indiana Jones, in the last scene where it looks like the jeep is backing up and the ball rolls after you, well, the car doesn't move (its just shakes). The walls move backwards and the ball is released, but spins away from you, but creates that illusion that its coming after you. imagineer Tony Baxter was inspired to put this effect in after sitting inhis car in the car wash at the gas station and watched how the water machines moved around the car, creating that illusion that you're moving, but you're not.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 7:53PM
That's cool! - nothinsuss  216.3 #1725 7:55PM
Whoa I never knew this!! I always thought the car moved backwards! Next time I'm going to pay more careful attention. Cool fact, thanks! - Jenniferr  506.7 #391 7:56PM
next time, try to sit on the ends of the rows and when its that scene, watch the walls. Try to look where the wall meets the floor and you could see it - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:03PM
The door room (first room) rotates too, right? Whenever I'm on it, I like to look behind me and see the wall rotate. - MonteKristal  311.7 #788 8:12PM
Yes, that changes too, but for me, its always the left :) - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:14PM
Yup! Saw that on the Disney channel when I was younger.. always love that part of the ride - Jacqueline  580.0 #330 9:27PM
When first promoting Disneyland, Walt chose to use Tinkerbell as its mascot, instead of Mickey. This was because if the park was a flop, he didn't want Mickey to be associated with failure.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:34PM
Are YOU the author of "Little Known Facts about Well-Known Places: Disneyland"??? hahaha you're a plethora of disney facts! :D - Jaytasmic  373.3 #574 8:42PM
haha. no. I just know a lot of Disney stuff. - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:59PM
That book has quiet a few inaccuracies in it ... Kevin is much smarter than that! - calpolyDLlover  247.9 #1322 12:39AM
I have a door on Main Street and a brick outside in the Esplenade - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 10:28PM
You have a door on Main Street? Like one of the windows? - iDreamAboutDumbo  320.0 #751 1:13AM
There's a window that's a tribute to all Cast Members. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #140 11:06AM
Me too. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 11:24AM
Here is my fact.. Where the art gallery used to be and the dream suite is now was supposed to be an apartment for Walt. It was going to be an all top of the line luxury apartment with direct access to club 33. The apartment above the firehouse was supposed to be temporary and it's very small. But Walt died before they could start construction on the luxury apartment. =( I think it's kind of cool that they put he DS up there.. Kind of like a tribute to what it was supposed to be. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 1:05PM
The railing on the Dream Suite balcony also has a W and R for Walt and Roy. - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 2:10PM
Dang it! I was gonna tell that one! - theRealDisneygirlforevr  175.3 #2249 2:33PM
I tell this story to guests all the time when I work in NOS - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:09PM
When creating the Partners statue, they researched what Walt always wanted to change. they found out that he always wanted to be a little taller, so the statue of Walt is a little taller than in reality.   - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:50PM
Back in the day the Frontierland Shooting Gallery used live .22 caliber rifles.
- CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 3:33PM
And then Changed to Compressed air pellet rifles. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 4:04PM
but not lead bullets, frangible bullets - Coaster  16135.8 #1 8:49PM
POTC and the HM were supposed to be walk throughs, until Walt saw the Omnimover system at the World's Fair in 1964. He then brought the system to DL and put it in the HM. for POTC, he thought guests would take too long walking through the scenes, so he made it a boat ride, making each experience the same amount of time.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 7:49PM
1st, AWESOME thread you started Mouseketeer! 2nd, I just finished reading Mouse Tales and More Mouse Tales by David Keonig. There is a ton of insider info and really interesting history on the park. They're both great reads for anyone interested :) - melissa_ficent  318.6 #759 9:43PM
last one: you can see the building that hosts the Indy attraction from DTD. when you get off the tram, look to the left and you'll see a green building with some green looking clouds on it. That's the building that has the last scene in it. (you can hear the rumble from WOD about every 10-15 seconds) - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 11:01PM
Another fact. Walt was at a CM orientation and was addressing the new hires. One of the newbies out of respect asked Mr. Disney a question. He answered the young man and added. Son there is only one Mr. in park, and that is Mr. Lincoln. My name is Walt. That's what's on my name tag. We are family and we use our first names here.  - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 2:53PM
Wow thats so great to learn - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #155 8:44PM
The Monsanto Mighty Microscope from Adventure Through Inner Space appears in both versions of Star Tours after it replaced the former attraction. It appears in the original attraction film during the wrong turn scene in the Space Station when you drop and pull back up. In the new version, it appears in the Death Star Scene to the bottom left before you pass the force fields protecting the hanger bay inside the Death Star.

Oh good one shadow! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 2:19PM
Tbank you!! I did not know that one!! - nikole31  242.9 #1387 4:17PM
Oops I meant thank you!!! - nikole31  242.9 #1387 4:17PM
I read that the railings high up in NOS are actually made of a rubbery plastic- so that they won't rust. - princessSue  270.6 #1099 2:48PM
My favorite fact (which I'm sure everyone knows about) has always been that Walts apartment above the fire house there is a light always on in his honor. that's always been my fav. - nikole31  242.9 #1387 4:28PM
Awww I like that one too. And they turn the light off when his daughters are at the parks out of respect. - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1443 9:16PM
The plain Purple tea cup is the fastest spinning tea cup. - Miki  44.1 #4788 5:28PM
i read that in my book too :) - Jaytasmic  373.3 #574 5:29PM
Thanks for the info!! - Jenniferr  506.7 #391 7:57PM
They actually slowed all the teacups down a few yrs ago bcuz of some city mandated rule I believe - DisneyFan(tasmic)  194.9 #1996 10:12PM
On the HM dining room scene, turn around and you will see a wheelchair sitting there. A guest really loved the HM and when he died, his wife wanted to put something in there that gave a tribute to him. So Disney allowed them to put his wheelchair in the HM, for being a lifetime fan. the CMs sometimes move it around, but its kinda creepy seeing it there all by itself.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 9:39PM
When they were first in the planning stages, the imagineers had the Alice attractions be a walk through attraction, being that you were playing the role of Alice and walking through the story. Some of the concepts are still present (ie: the door knob, the flowers, etc). The best part was that when a guest got to the second floor and wantd to get back to the first, they were going to be a giant slide that you would slide down, returning you back to her "reality" - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 10:21PM
Imagine walk through Timmy hunts! - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 10:53PM
Original designs for Haunted Mansion included a restraunt inside ala Blue Bayou. I think it would have made an awesome atmosphere. - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 12:19AM
That when they first filled the Rivers of America, it all drained away. They had to seal the bottom so it wouldn't do it again. Also that there is water from all the rivers in America that was poured in it during the opening. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 1:12PM
I heard that last time they drained ROS they found two autopia cars. - Mouse4life  1293.1 #123 2:25PM
ROA* - Mouse4life  1293.1 #123 2:30PM
They found lots of pagers and cell phones and glasses - MelodyMouse  6674.2 #13 3:11PM
How could there be that stuff in there... Didn't a little boy get sucked down by the filters like gust in Willy winks and the chocolate factory. - PrincessDaisy  323.7 #732 4:44PM
When testing the Matterhorn bobselds, the imagineers didn't have a way to stop the bobsleds at the end of the ride, so they set up a pile of hey to stop the bobsleds. Walt loved the way the bobsleds stopped and the sense of a sudden stop, so they kept it in (minus the hey) - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:06PM
Hey is for horses - Mouse4life  1293.1 #123 8:11PM
horses are for ridin.....and ridin is for DISNEYLAND!!!! - NeverlandClub  390.6 #546 8:12PM
But grass is cheaper! - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 8:24PM
When Splash Mountain first opened, it was the largest attraction Disney had ever built (acreage wise)  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:16PM
i also heard the price of splash is what walt paid to open disneyland originally - NeverlandClub  390.6 #546 8:19PM
yeah, they both cost $17million - Jaytasmic  373.3 #574 8:22PM
Yep - and part of the cost was the original logs. They were too heavy, and sank. I have a friend who was on the redesign team that got the functional ones built and shipped so the ride could open! *LOL* - ThatStarWarsKimberly  398.9 #533 9:42PM
On the hot summer days, it can get up to 150 degrees inside a character's costume D: - Jaytasmic  373.3 #574 8:43PM
Oh my those poor CS! - NeverlandTink  423.1 #484 9:35PM
All of the buildings in Toon Town aren't straight lines, giving it take cartoon like feel. The imagineers couldn't figure out how to build crooked walls, so they build straight walls on the inside and made the facades with crooked lines. also, the paint that is used is flammable. that's why it closes early and a firetruck is always ready during the fireworks  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 9:04PM
I love all your facts BBM. I could talk to you for hours! - NeverlandTink  423.1 #484 9:38PM
Umm not sure if I believe you. We close toontown because of the close proximity but have you ever seen the mess the shells leave after? Too much clean up so it stays closed. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1659 9:22AM
Omg, I LOVE this thread so much!!! - PrincessKristin  780.8 #224 9:16PM
I agree! Thanks Mouseketeer for initiating this post! :) A lot of great information! MWers are awesome! - SarahLovesDisney  82.6 #3777 9:20PM
I love this post!!!! : D - Dlandlover  6.5 #14046 10:39PM
The old skyway station in fantasy land can still be found behind the casey jr. Circus train. - monkeboy2042_CM  317.0 #769 11:45PM
And if you look closely at the wrought iron work on the balcony of the Dream Suite in NOS, you'll see Walt and Roy Disney's initials highlighted in gold. Thank you Walt; thank you Roy. What gifts you both gave to the world. - 50sKid  254.4 #1248 2:16PM
From what I've been told about the bb bullet holes in the Grand Canyon and Haunted Mansion...prior to 9/11 There were a lot of gang members hanging at DL usually on Friday nights ( scaring a lot of families) and they usually carried fire arms into the park. No check in security then. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.8 #168 3:52PM
Oops this was supposed to post one down. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.8 #168 3:52PM
Oh I've heard that one but I thought it was some guy that went crazy. - apanda1983  186.6 #2097 4:03PM
Look closely next time on the haunted manison, in the dining room scene, there is a gun shot hole and instead of replacing that whole piece of glass a cast member went to the dollar store and got a plastic spider and placed it over the hole. - DisneyTrueLove  8.1 #11818 2:38PM
Why is there a bullet hole? - Sharkgrrl19  248.7 #1309 3:12PM
Also wonder why the bb bullet hole on the train ride through the dinosaur part has been there for years....anyone know? - MicheyMouse  343.5 #650 3:31PM
I always wanted to know the story begin all of these.....hmmmm ;) - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #660 3:42PM
The bullet hole in Mansion is there because some kid decided to shoot the glass with a BB gun during a grad night years ago. Those panes of glass are so large that they were flown in and placed by helicopter before they put the roof on the building. They are also very expensive. So, instead of spending tons of money and shutting down the attraction to take off he roof and replace it, they covered it with a fake plastic spider. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 3:47PM
Hm, well I have one. When they brought in the skeletons for POTC, Walt thought they looked like Halloween decorations. So they swapped them for actual human skeletons from UCLA. Of course, they've since been re-replaced with realistic fake ones. - snowwannab  733.9 #244 8:25PM
There's still one human skull left - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 8:29PM
It's the skull on the headboard right? - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 8:32PM
Yep - melissa_ficent  318.6 #759 9:23PM
You are correct shadowgamer - Jacqueline  580.0 #330 9:32PM
Why do I have a hard time believing this - monkeboy2042_CM  317.0 #769 9:10AM
Some parts in the Jungle Cruise are only up to 3 ft deep. That's why they painted the water brown so guests couldn't see.. - Jaytasmic  373.3 #574 8:30PM
Alice in Wonderland and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride share the same building. Β Alice is on the 2nd floor, Mr. Toad is on the 1st floor. - DisneyPhotoFan  920.2 #183 8:41PM

Ooo also you can see the three moose who did the intro to Country Bear Jamboree on the Winnie the Pooh attraction after you pass the heffalumps and woozles room and turn around! :) - SarahLovesDisney  82.6 #3777 9:10PM
I got walked off in that room! - bluefairy  643.3 #293 12:03AM
That's awesome bluefairy!! πŸ’™πŸ’™ I've only been walked off once (for splash) I love Disney behind the scenes!! Hope to get more walk offs to see more! :) - SarahLovesDisney  82.6 #3777 5:47AM
Believe it or not but the song "Tragic Kingdom" by No Doubt features the little remain seated recording from the Matterhorn and some Main Street music in the beginning. - jonagurcia  264.6 #1161 9:20PM
They also used part of the main street electrical parade recording on there trajic kingdom tour - Alex   307.3 #822 9:23PM
Yup, they are from Anaheim (: - Jacqueline  580.0 #330 10:42PM
IASW has its own generator.  During a large power outage, a friend was working on the topiaries during the night shift.  He said it was terrifyingly weird to hear that thing singing when everything else was blacked out for miles. - ThatStarWarsKimberly  398.9 #533 9:35PM
On opening day the asphalt on Main St hadn't yet dried, so all the women in heels kept getting stuck in it. Also, Walt had to choose between clean drinking H20 or running toilets so he chose toilets of course since ppl could always buy a difft beverage! - DisneyFan(tasmic)  194.9 #1996 10:24PM
There were CM's serving free water to the guests that day. They stood throughout the park with trays, glasses and pitchers of water. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 11:37AM
This is such a fun thread. Thanks all for the fun Disney facts! - PrincessLeia  306.8 #824 10:47PM
When walking down main street, take a look at the display windows . Notice that they are lower to the ground than normal . Walt purposley had imagineers design the windows like that so small children could see te displays inside the windows while walking down main street . :-) - PrincessMacy  536.5 #367 10:49PM
3 Fave Facts: 1) You can not buy chewing gum in the parks. Walt stepped in gum one time and decided to banned it from the park. Plus, it takes too long to clean it up. 2) There was a lingere shop on Main St. with its own underwear museum. 3) All but one of the golden spires on the castle are gold leafed. The painted one served as a reminder that 'Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.' Also Walt did this when his CFO(Roy) went on vacation. Roy was not pleased because they were low on funds. - MellyChelly  264.9 #1155 4:13AM
The first Tinkerbell hired to "fly" over the castle in the early 60s was 71 years old! Her name is Tiny Kline. - jacdanfan  9420.2 #3 5:37AM
LOL! I always loved that one. I hear she had a very colorfull personality! I don't know how true this is but I heard they would put a mattress up to stop her!!! - Boundin  614.7 #310 9:03PM
The droids in the queue for Star Tours were originally geese in America Sings. - Geekery  409.4 #512 9:12AM
While working W/S stores, I had theΒ privilege of working with one of the original CM's named Karen who at the time was mgr of all the W/S stores. At closing time, she would always give a little facts speech to the CM's about DL. She knew Watt very well. One was that as you walk form land to land, if you look down, you will notice that the pavement changes to show the landscape of the land you are in. Frontierland has cowboy boots and horse shoe prints. And the music in each land is also for that period.Β  - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 11:52AM
What a way to end your day! Is she still working? - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 11:57AM
No. I believe she retired several years ago. All the older mgrs and leads knew her. She was awesome. Ask the w/s leads and older girls and stockers. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 2:48PM

And the ride, well before they put all the movie stuff in, is a journey through his memories of being a pirate. When you go down the first drop, you are supposed to be descending into his mind and he appears several other places during the ride. The story is also tied in with Haunted Mansion, that's why the weather vane is a ship. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 11:36AM
You can find a video of it on YouTube! It's really cool to see walt and all the kids from around the world! - kritomiester  364.1 #592 11:42AM
Oh my gosh! So cool. Where else does he appear in the ride? - BlackCanary86  64.2 #4160 11:48AM
Between these two rides there was supposed to be a crypt. You can still see the top arch of the would be doorway along the wall/bench/sidewalk dividers (don't know how to describe it) between potc and hm. it has a date on top of the arch - Pixarprincess  541.0 #362 11:50AM
I did not know that. Cool - cesium55  531.6 #371 11:51AM
Absolutely correct. It was going to be a tunnel walkway thing linking the attractions into one story. The date is the birth year of the imagineer who came up with it minus 200 years I believe. Every attraction in the parks has a story tied to it. The mansion one is very interesting. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 11:53AM
I've read so much into Pirates! This has to be my favorite thing! I love it!! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 12:13PM

I'd love to hear the haunted mansion story! Can anyone send it to me? - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #219 1:48PM
The Haunted Mansion story goes that The pirate Capt. Blood built the mansion for his wife and she made him promise to never go out to sea again. He told her that he had to go one last time and he was gone for a long time. When he finally came back they got into a big argument and he ended up killing her. Not sure if he killed her accidentally or out of rage. Well, he was so distraught over her death that it's rumored he hung himself in the gallery.. This is why there is a ship weathervane and the picture of the ship in the portrait hall, and also obviously the hanging man in the gallery is Capt. Blood. =) Disney has added stuff with the bride in the attic and killing her husbands and stuff.. but this is one of the original stories. Enjoy! - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 2:00PM

Why is there a bullet hole? - Sharkgrrl19  248.7 #1309 3:12PM
Also wonder why the bb bullet hole on the train ride through the dinosaur part has been there for years....anyone know? - MicheyMouse  343.5 #650 3:31PM
I always wanted to know the story begin all of these.....hmmmm ;) - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #660 3:42PM
The bullet hole in Mansion is there because some kid decided to shoot the glass with a BB gun during a grad night years ago. Those panes of glass are so large that they were flown in and placed by helicopter before they put the roof on the building. They are also very expensive. So, instead of spending tons of money and shutting down the attraction to take off he roof and replace it, they covered it with a fake plastic spider. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 3:47PM
From what I've been told about the bb bullet holes in the Grand Canyon and Haunted Mansion...prior to 9/11 There were a lot of gang members hanging at DL usually on Friday nights ( scaring a lot of families) and they usually carried fire arms into the park. No check in security then. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1035.8 #168 3:52PM

another bit of info about the lamp that is always on in Walt's apartment above the firestation: when Walt's daughters are in the park they turn the lamp off out of respect for them.  - purrplepokin  3.4 #28715 4:38PM

Huh. I always heard that the bride's death was caused by her overprotective father. When the sailor was gone at sea, he came in as she was trying on her wedding dress. He lied to her, telling her that the captain died at sea. She killed herself, then when the captain came back and heard of the news, he hung himself. - snowwannab  733.9 #244 8:19PM

Walt was going to build another type of Main Street to the left of the Disney opera house. It was going to be called Liberty Street, and it was to open in 1959. Complete with a blacksmith, glass maker, and weaver, Liberty Street would also have a Hall of Presidents. Instead of developing it as planned, he used the funds to update Tomorrowland.

On the Haunted Mansion, if a guest with a wheelchair cannot transfer quick enough to unload on the moving sidewalk, they stay in the car which then continues backstage and around to just before the loading area, where they can transfer back to their wheelchair. They are then taken to the elevator/stretching room, and then ride UP in the elevator. (I experienced this once when I was visiting with my mother-in-law). - PrincessKristin  780.8 #224 9:34PM

It's actually kind of creepy.. Haha. I didn't like it the first couple times I did it. .. Ooh.. Also, the stretching room is not an elevator, it's a hydraulic lift and can't carry much weight up.

There were original plans to create Chinatown on Mainstreet (East Center St., just north of Market House...this area used to have the Flower Mart where the fruitstand is today). Chinatown's main attraction was to be an audio-animatronic stage show in an elegant Chinese restaurant starring Confucius, a talking dragon, and singing birds.  By the summer of 1960, the idea was scrapped, but the animatronic birds idea survived, where it flew over to Adventureland and landed three years later in the Enchanted Tiki Room. - Alicewhoareyou  2070.3 #69 9:46PM

The train tracks you see in front of the currently used ones at Main Street Station are the original rails from opening, not just a prop. - CM_Shadowgamer  2468.7 #49 12:09AM
This is because dl used to have what is called a 2 track system. And that small section connected back into the tracks (as opposed to just being that little segment) it was left in memory of the older system when the rails were updated. - Pixarprincess  541.0 #362 11:37AM

I'm sure you all know this one... The building on Main Street are larger near the entrance and get smaller as you move towards the hub. This is to make Main St look longer as you enter the park and shorter at the end of the day when you are tired. Also the names on the windows are actual names of people who have contributed to Disney in some way. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3050 12:16AM

Umm not sure if I believe you. We close toontown because of the close proximity but have you ever seen the mess the shells leave after? Too much clean up so it stays closed. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1659 9:22AM
Ever wonder why chip and dales treehouse in toontown doesn't have leaves? They were made of plastic and would often catch on fire. So no leaves. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1659 9:25AM

When the imagineers were taking out the audio-animatronics from Nature's Wonderland, some of them were used again for their parts and some were put around the park in other places, but most of them were buried underground of what is today Rancho Del Zocalo. :/ - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.9 #8 11:20AM

There were CM's serving free water to the guests that day. They stood throughout the park with trays, glasses and pitchers of water. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #191 11:37AM
This is because dl used to have what is called a 2 track system. And that small section connected back into the tracks (as opposed to just being that little segment) it was left in memory of the older system when the rails were updated. - Pixarprincess  541.0 #362 11:37AM
Some of the audio-animatronics that were once used in America sings were brought back and placed in the new star tours. The two droids that you see in the baggage check queue (not rex) are the "reused" AA's. - GreenLantern  746.6 #236 11:48AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 24, 2015
Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week. If you've been waiting for the summer madness to end, this might be your week to hit the Parks! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 24, 2015 11:03AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  495.8 #399 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7163 11:53PM

I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10619 9:33AM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
