Ten Cool Secrets About Disneyland

Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Night

Where I grew up in Orange County, California, we were about fifteen minutes away from Disneyland by car. As a child, my family visited the park a few times a year and I can still remember nearly losing my mind with excitement as we drove up to the gates outside the massive parking lot.  When I was a rebelious teenager, I’d escape the eagle eyes of my parents by spending entire days at Disneyland with friends, and always had the time of my life. I haven’t been back to Disneyland now for over ten years so I haven’t seen all the changes it’s gone through firsthand. For example, I know that much of the Tomorowland section of the park has been updated, since what was considered to be futuristic in 1979 is laughably outdated today. This morning I saw that Neatorama has posted a very cool story on Ten Secrets you may or may not have known about the history of The Happiest Place on Earth, such as how many deaths have occurred in the park, the only place inside Disneyland that sells alcohol, and the location of Walt Disney’s secret apartment. It’s a very cool read located at this link: Ten Cool Secrets About Disneyland!
