I love lists like this. Hilary White:
The happiest place on Earth also happens to be one of the most interesting. Disney World has been around for nearly half a century, and with age comes good stories — and lots of them.
The stories are a good read if you can stomach the more than 40 clicks to view them all. My favorites:
- Since 1971, an estimated 1.65 million pairs of glasses have found their way into the ‘lost’ bin. On an annual basis, Lost and Found cast members collect more than 6,000 cell phones, 3,500 digital cameras, 18,000 hats and 7,500 autograph books.
- The camel outside the Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride actually spits on you. Rumor has it a cast member operates the camel and decides which guests to spray with water.
- Cinderella’s Castle is not built from stones. The entire building is built out of fiberglass, concrete, steel, cement, and plaster. No bricks or stones were used at all.
