So without further ado, let’s unravel the secrets of Disneyland…
Secret Suite in Cinderella’s Castle:
Inside Cinderella’s castle, there’s a hidden secret suite that you must see. This secret suite is located above the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Actually, it was intended to be an apartment for Mr. Walt Disney’s family, however, he passed away before the suite was finished.
It has 24-karat gold floor tiles, stained glass windows, and a big magic mirror that can be built as a television. Disneyland uses this suite as a gift or prize for families who’ll win at competition inside the park.
Skull on The Pirates of The Caribbean Ride is Freakin’ Real!
Yeah, you read it right! Scary isn’t? Imagine, a real skull is hanging inside that ride?!
The first ride was opened at Disneyland in 1967, the designers didn’t like the fake skeletons at that time, because it’s too plastic and looks unrealistic. One of the designers came up to an idea to look for a real one and placed it inside the ride.
Aside from the creepiness aura, they found out that an actual human skeleton would actually suit the ride, so they used a lot of skeletons from UCLA Medical School and ask for permission to use.
However, as the years passed by, it was then replaced by fake skeletons. But the one with the skull and cross bone that looks old were genuine human skull and skeletons inside the ride.
Toy Story Characters – Say the Magic Word!
A lot of Disney characters are loitering around the park, but what’s more interesting in those characters are the cast members of Toy Story. Here’s the catch, if you yell “Andy’s coming!” all of the characters will stop and drop as a toy just like in the movie! Fun, isn’t?
