    On POTC the guy playing the banjo in the beginning of the ride, is also the same pirate that is depicted in the jail scene holding the bone to try and entice the dog to give them the keys..it is Lafette...the pirate the ride is based on!!!
    Any day at Disneyland is a Happy Day!!!!

    Plus during the pirates of the Caribbean ship battle scene, if you have a good eye, you can see the clouds above look like Goofy's head. Believe me, I saw it.

    Approximately 30 tons of garbage is generated during a busy park day.

    yep thats right

    in potc the first waterfalls go right under the train tracks and into the main show building

    in haunted mansion when you walk through the portrait corridor you are walking under the train tracks to the show building

    also the haunted mansion building itself was completed in 1963 but the ride did not open until 1969 six years after. this is mainly because Walt was working on many worlds fair attraction including small world and great moments with mr lincolin.another worlds fair ride was ford motors magic skyway.that ride inspired the doom buggies you see now on the attraction,before it was going to be a walk through haunted mansion

    another reason for the delay is walts death.he died in 1966 of lung cancer
    and the imagineers were without a leader to have final say on the ride.

    eventually in 1969 the ride opened and became the ride we know today.

    In the line for Indy, there is an Eeyore sign from the old parking lot, on which the ride was built. PM me for a picture! Or go to:

    -Michael Eisner has a little tree house perched far above Tom Sawyers Island. He sits up there on occasion, making sure that nobody carves the names of loved ones into the wood of the forts.

    -I have also heard that, this is all speculation of course, that the chicken legs available for purchase contain small bits of the animals that once graced the Big Thunder Ranch.

    -Apparently following the completion of Alice in Wonderland, Walt Disney would periodically dress as the Queen of Hearts and scamper around the ride screaming obsenities at unsuspecting guests.

    All I remember is that they're behind you, so you have to turn around at a particular scene (I wanna say the dream scene, but I don't remember for sure). They are also above a door so they're kind of higher up.

    There was a time capsule buried on July 17, 1995 (Disneyland's 40th birthday) in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. It is to be opened on July 17th, 2035 so we still have a while before we can see the Indy merchandise and park memorabilia of the 40th.

    Or you can just go on eBay and get it all now...eBay was not a consideration in July 1995 so they probably figured people wouldn't see 1995 stuff for 40 years.

    The cement foundation by Ariel's Grotto in Disneyland, is the same foundation that was for the House of Tommorrow.Mostly plants around it.


    Also the house had to be removed piece by piece.The reason why was the wrecking ball literally bounced off it when they went to tear it down.
