Disney Trivia- Ray Ray Style
Alright. I am a freak. I freaking love Disney. I am just as excited, if not more to be traveling to Disney today, and as you read this, I am currently en route. So, I thought I would lend you some of my Disney knowledge and tidbits and useless facts.
Did you know that Disney World recycles all the human wastes from the hotels and parks? They do! I won’t go into the details, but it’s used to either water the grass or fertilize the tree farms. If you see a sign that says, “This is not drinking water!”- believe it!
If someone is hurt in the park and needs medical attention, a cast member requests an Alpha Unit.
Did you know that vomit is called a protein spill in Disney?
When they were building the Tower of Terror, it was actually supposed to be much taller, but they would have had to add a blinking light on the top for planes, and Disney thought it would ruin the effect, so they built it under the height requirement.
Walt Disney World covers 47 square miles, which equals the size of two Manhattan Islands. Of the 30,000 acres, only one-fourth has been developed, with the rest designated as wilderness preserve.
WDW staffs more than 54,000 employees. Which makes Disney World Resort, the largest single-site employer in the US.
More than 50 million Cokes are consumed each year at WDW.
The Lost and Found is crazy busy. An average of 100 pairs of sunglasses are turned in every day at the Magic Kingdom alone.
If you wanted to stay in every guest room in every resort currently open at WDW, staying in one room per night, it would take more than 72 years.
Space Mountain and Thunder Mountain move at 26 mph, making the Monorail the fastest ride at Disney, until Test Track was installed at Epcot.
Cinderella’s castle is NOT made of stone. It’s actually fiberglass.
Children are never lost in Disney. It’s the parents who are lost!
For every 3 trees you see in the parks, there is one in a tree farm that is the exact same size in case they need to be replaced over night from a storm or any damage.
Every night, Cast Members spray the sidewalks with 120 degree water to melt away any gum.
Here is my Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella movie knowledge that I figured out by having watched them 100+ times.
Eleanor Audley did the voices for both Maleficent and Lady Tremaine. And Verna Felton did the voices for both the Fairy Godmother and Flora( the red fairy).
Hope y’all enjoyed!
