Disneyland is full of interesting facts about the park and its history, but here are some secrets that you might not know about it!
When you go on the Mad Tea Party ride in Fantasyland and spin around in colorful tea cups to fun music, you probably didn’t know that the purple teacup and the orange with diamonds teacup spin the fastest! The two teacups with the hearts spin the slowest, so if you get dizzy easily, ride those cups!
Also, while waiting for the Indiana Jones Adventure ride in Adventureland, you’ll see a bamboo pole with a sign that says ‘don’t pull’, and if you pull it there will be a loud booming noise and it’ll sound like the ceiling is caving in! You’ll also see a rope with a sign next to it that says not to pull it, and if you do pull it, it’ll make an unseen mine worker fall and voices scream out from the well below!
Just as well, in Snow White’s Scary Adventures in Fantasyland, if you touch the apple it will make the evil queen laugh hysterically! Be careful though, it is terrifying!
Disneyland is also home to tons of stray cats! If you ever see a cat running around the park, it’s because they keep the cats around to help control the mouse population. Don’t worry though, they make sure all the cats get their shots and are fed!
Lastly, if you decide to visit the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in New Orleans Square, here is an interesting fact: when the ride first opened all of the bones and skeletons were made of real human bones! Now most of the bones are fake, but the skull and crossbones above the captain’s chambers are still real human bones!
So, now you know some of the awesome secrets about Disneyland, and next time you visit the park keep your eyes open for these fun facts!
