The Disney franchise is a Mecca, as we all know. It is most certainly a household name, and the kingdom has become a magical place for all that visit. But even the most savvy of all Disney fans might not know all there is to Disney. See how much of a Disney kid you really are with this list of little-known Disney World facts. 1. Contrary to popular belief, Walt Disney is not buried under the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland. He is actually cremated and his remains now lay in the very famous Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA. 2. There is a new ride in Walt Disney World that will open soon called “Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.” The ride is based off Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It’s an adventurous roller coaster that glides guests through the Dwarfs mines! The ride is set to open May 28, 2014. 3. We all know that the Dole Pineapple Whip line can be longer than some of the rides; however the coveted treat is only served in Disneyland and Walt Disney World! 4. An “Ariel” View of Disney’s Hollywood Studios shows something very unique to the park. You can’t possibly miss those famous ears!

5. What do Jungle Cruise, The Mad Tea Party, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and Peter Pan’s Flight have in common? They all are the original rides from the opening day of day at Disneyland! 6. Disneyland has reportedly only closed the park on 4 different occasions since opening day. That truly is magical. 7. You would think Mickey wouldn’t like cats, right? There are over 200 feral cats living in Disneyland that are released after the park closes to get rid of the vermin. 8. There is a whole lot of bustle going on in Main Street, but there is just as much activity going on below. The park is built over tunnels so cast members can make it from one side of the park to the other without encountering the crowds. images 9.  The haunting voice of the Haunted Mansion is Paul Frees who also says the phrase “Dead Men Tell No Tales” on Pirates of the Caribbean. The voice of Madame Leota, the woman in the crystal ball, is played by Eleanor Audley who also did the voice of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty and Lady Tremaine in Cinderella. 10. Pirates of the Caribbean was the last ride that Walt Disney personally oversaw. The ride opened to the public a few months after his death. 11. Disneyland was built in just 365 days. 12. Comedian Steve Martin worked at Disneyland from the age of 10 to 18. 13. Disneyland’s California Adventure’s is built on what used to be the parking lot for Disneyland. 14. There is a light on 24/7 in the window of Walt’s apartment that is built over the Fire Station on Main Street. Since his death, the light shines bright as a reminder of his dedication and hard work.

If your Mickey balloon pops or flies away, just show a cast member your receipt and you will be given another one! 17. When Pirates of the Caribbean opened in 1967, the ride harbored real human skeletons as props from UCLA Medical Center. 18. When you enter the Stars Tour ride, a deafening voice can be heard over the loud speaker saying “Egroeg Sacul.” That is George Lucas spelled backwards. 19. Love to get dizzy? Ride the purple teacup in the Mad Hatter ride. It spins the fastest! 20. Ask the host/hostess for a death certificate when you enter the Haunted Mansion. If you get lucky, you will have one waiting for you after the ride! 21. Right above the Snow White ride, look closely in the window. The Evil Queen appears every few minutes. snow-whites-scary-adventures-to-close-may-31st-EkKj 22. If you are traveling with kids, the “rider switch” policy lets both parents enjoy the attractions without double the wait. 23. Once a day the Mad Hatter and Alice will play musical chairs with the guests on Main Street on Coke Corner! 24. In the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney designed the parks in a way where when you can pass from land to land but don’t see any of the other lands. 25. If you see a human character like Mary Poppins, ask them a question about their movie and they go right into character! Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
