    They will soon be closing down POTC to do a makeover of the Bayou scene to tie it in with the upcoming 'Princess and the Frog' movie.

    Re: Make up a phony "urban legend" about Disneyland

    The big CALIFORNIA letters outside DCA are owned by John Stamos. When the park was built they asked him if he would like to be involved, knowing what a big fan he is. He paid for the construction of the letters under the condition Disney would be responsible for all upkeep expenses and that the letters would be transported to John's home, at Disney's expense, whenever their use came to an end.

    Re: Make up a phony "urban legend" about Disneyland

    Because the state of California considers it a waste of a natural resource, Disney is not allowed to fill the sub lagoon with water. As a result, the lagoon as actually covered with celophane to give the illusion of water. Slits in the celophane allow the subs to traverse the tracks without ripping it off completely.

    Re: Make up a phony "urban legend" about Disneyland

    The bone room in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye and the Haunted Mansion cemetery are actually populated with the bodies of retired cast members. As part of the Walt Disney Company's retirement package, Cast Members with a minimum amount of service time (20 years) are entitled to FREE burial space on Disneyland property. The deceased Cast Members become part of the rides' backstory and Disney adds to the authenticity of its rides.

    Re: Make up a phony "urban legend" about Disneyland

    The Midget Autopia was a short-lived (no pun intended) attraction that was hastily built after an association of dwarves and midgets conducted a letter-writing campaign directly to Walt Disney, complaining that the design of the Autopia cars prevented midgets from reaching the pedals. After several failed attempts to design midget-friendly cars for Autopia, Disney finally agreed to build a separate attraction for midgets. It was a very short (no pun intended) track that only took 1 minute to complete one circuit of, so midgets were allowed to complete up to 3 circuits at one sitting. It was open by appointment only, but saw such little use (an average of less than one person per day) that the park decided after just 10 weeks to open it to all children from ages 4 to 7. It was still used so infrequently that it was discontinued, although the track remained there until the construction of It's A Small World began in the 1960s. Midgets today commonly refuse to attend Disneyland, in solidarity with the midgets of the 1950s who felt they were discriminated against.
