1.  As you enter Sleeping Beauty's castle from the drawbridge, look up to see the Disney family crest over the archway.

2. This drawbridge has only been lowered twice: once at the opening of the park and again in the 1980's when Fantasyland was refurbished.

2.  The dog holding the keys on The Pirates of the Carribean and the Carousel of Progress are both modeled after Walt Disney's dog.

3. Walt Disney kept a private apartment over the Main Street Fire House.  When the light was on in the window, it was a signal to the crew that Walt was onsite.  Today the light remains on in his honor.

4. Steve Martin's first job was in the Magic Shop on Main Street.

5. The organ in the Haunted Mansion is from the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

6. Main Street is said to be modeled after Walt's boyhood hometown: Marceline (represented by one of the candy shops, Missouri and set in 1910.  The scent of vanilla is pumped into the air along Main Street and peppermint is pumped in during the holidays.

7. The floor to the entrance of Disneyland is red because Walt Disney wanted everyone to feel like a celebrity walking the red carpet.

8. Pay attention to the sound track running in Main Street.  You'll hear: a dentist drilling (near the dental office), a piano student who makes an obvious mistake, a man showering, a detective's dog barking, and more.  Ficticious names of the businesses are painted on the windows.

9. Disneyland's address is 1313 for M being the 13th letter of the alphabet (MM).

10. The Tiki Room was originally designed to be a restaurant.  That is why it is the only attraction with restrooms attached.
