Overview

You have probably heard a few "interesting facts" about Disneyland over the years. Perhaps you've heard that Walt Disney kept an apartment on Main Street? Or that there is a secret, members-only club in New Orleans Square? It's all true... but these are only two of the interesting facts pointed out in "101 Things You Never Knew About Disneyland." Many of the stories here deal with more obscure, yet equally interesting, histories of Disneyland. In fact, the majority of the material comes straight from interviews with the Imagineers who helped to build, maintain, and revitalize Disneyland. The book pays special attention to the inside jokes and hidden references to Disneyland's past, as these samples illustrate:

Do you know which play on words pays tribute to a former Mexican restaurant at a certain site?

Do you know how Tarzan's Treehouse honors its predecessor in two different ways?

Do you know what is so unusual about the decorations atop "It's a Small World"?

Do you know why one palm tree in Adventureland is special?

Do you know what the sign says at the bottom of Splash Mountain's big drop?

Do you know which pumpkin is an homage to a Disneyland official?

It's a certainty that you haven't heard all these stories before. Although there are 101 such highlighted stories, each comes with a fuller description and is followed by a second story that is thematically related, so this volume really offers 202 Things you haven't heard about Disneyland before. You will find these facts delightful and unforgettable once you've heard them!
