Walt Disney World, did you know that....?
Disney World never, ever has any “lost children” at their theme parks. It is the parents that are lost! Cast members undergo special training to make sure that children who become separated from their parents are made to feel comfortable. This way is it hoped that the children will not become stressed and it makes it easier for the missing parents to be found.
The bricks in Cinderella’s Castle become smaller the higher up they are. This is a particular method called “forced perspective”. It gives the appearance of the castle being taller than it actually is.
Every mosaic in the Moroccan pavilion in Epcot has one cracked or flawed tile within it. Artisans, who were brought to Orlando from their home country of Morocco, created the mosaics and their belief is that only Allah can produce something which is perfect. So in order to respect this belief they purposely included flaws in all the mosaics.
Animal Kingdom is the largest Disney theme park in the world. It is five times the size of Magic Kingdom.
Chewing gum is not sold in any of the outlets in any of the Disney parks. However, if you ride the Tower of Terror in Hollywood Studios there is fake gum stuck to the walkways in the basement!
The pavements in Epcot are painted pink in order to make the grass look greener.
On the opening day of Magic Kingdom only ten thousand guests attended. It had been estimated that one hundred thousand guests would come through the gates, so it must have been a big disappointment for the Disney chiefs.
The windows on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom open and shut just before and after the parades. This is where the speakers are located that play the music for the parades.
Never one to miss a trick Disney designed Main Street with the food shops on the right as you enter the park and souvenir shops on the left. This is because most people walk on the right hand side when entering the park and leave using the opposite side, thus enabling guests to buy their breakfasts on the way in and their souvenirs on the way out!
All the produce, which is grown at The Land pavilion, is served in the restaurants in Epcot.
Mickey Mouse has more than one hundred and seventy five different costumes whereas his girlfriend, Minnie, has over two hundred. Well, you know what they say, “A girl can never have too many clothes! ”
On the ride Test Track in Epcot, each vehicle will travel fifty thousand miles every year.
This is one fact that is definitely important to remember if you are visiting during the Christmas period. Christmas Day is the busiest day of the year. Don’t say you weren’t warned!
The most bizarre items to be handed in to lost property in the parks have been a glass eye and a potty trainer. Surprisingly, their owners claimed both of them!
