Disneyland or Disney World, whatever you choose to call it, is a great place to go to, especially if you decide to take your children there to see a Disney princess or prince. Walt Disney certainly did not have this in mind when he first started the company.
He didn’t perceive the current Disney movies that we get nowadays, let alone a whole world dedicated to the characters he created.
However, besides the Disney World resorts and the awesome Disney World rides, there are numerous secrets about Disneyland that you need to know about. Therefore, in this article, you are going to read about 10 different Disney World secrets that not anyone knows about.
Therefore, before you get a Disneyland annual pass for the sake of your children, make sure that you keep reading the article to find out all that there is to find out about Disneyland.

1. Flags Are Not Regulation
The flags that you see scattered around Disney world do not follow U.S. regulations, such as
shining light on them at night. This is not because Disney world gets to special treatment.
They get away with it because those flags are fake, meaning that they are missing a stripe or
star here and there. Therefore, don’t be distracted by them too much and feel patriotic next time you’re looking
from your Disneyland hotel window. Enjoy your Disneyland passes and the food in Disneyland restaurants.
2. The Dragon on Animal Kingdom Sign Is There For a Reason
That famous Animal Kingdom sign has a dragon on it for a reason; it is not thrown in there just
for the sake of it.
The initial plans for the Animal Kingdom consisted in displaying all varieties of animals; that
is to say, they wanted to exhibit animals that exist, those that existed once upon a time, and those that never
existed—hence, the dragons. So don’t sweat it too much and enjoy those Disneyland passes you have. Give your family
some nice Disneyland time!
3. Animatronic Designs Get Reused
It is expensive to equip Disneyland with different animatronics. For that reason, if you look
closely, you will find out that they are everywhere around the ark, with various variations on clothes and hair,
which helps bring down costs. Therefore, you will not be mistaken in thinking that the Star Wars Disneyland park
reused animatronics from Pirates of the Caribbean. However, this does not take the fun from all the Disney World
4. Cats Roam at Night
This is something that you will not notice in the morning; however, rumor has it that cats roam
around Disneyland every time night comes down.
These cats were first brought to be incorporated in the Sleeping Beauty Castle; however, they
were later left there to fight the presence of any rats or mice that might decide to come to the place. However, do
not worry! These cats will not come near Disney World hotels or the Disneyland restaurants.
5. There is a Secret Suite in Cinderella Castle
We think that you would love to hear this one. Hush! There is a secret suite in the famous
Cinderella Castle. We bet you didn’t know about it before.
Everyone would love to spend a night at this suite; however, it is mostly reserved for these people who have been
fortunate enough to win contests.
That is to say, this is not part of a Disneyland hotel that is accessible to everyone. Maybe you could try other
hotels near Disneyland, or you can just stick to the many Disneyland rides.
6. There is A Tunnel System
Another fun fact about Disneyland, which happens to be a secret as well (not anymore!), is the
fact that there is a complex tunnel system that has been designed to run underneath the Magic Kingdom.
These tunnels are used by cast members to move around without being seen to interfere in any of
the worlds. Enjoy your Disneyland rides next time knowing that there is a complex tunnel system running underneath
the whole thing.
7. Epcot Was Supposed to Be a Real City
If you’ve ever come around the name Epcot and wondered what it stood for, you’re not alone.
However, we are here to help you with that!
Epcot is an abbreviation for the phrase “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.” Walt Disney had planned it
as a city with about 20,000 people and wanted it to be an experimentation ground for technology and city
Unfortunately, it never came to pass. Therefore, and for now, enjoy the other Disneyland rides
and the awesome Disneyland hotels and do not worry too much about Epcot.
8. Buildings Only Appear Larger
The buildings around Disney land and those next to the different awesome Disneyland ride
appear to be larger than they are, but they are not. The creators rely on something called forced perspective to
sell that illusion to your eyes.
However, don’t let this information affect your enjoyment of the best homage that has ever
been done to the different Disney cartoons. Also, enjoy the Disneyland fireworks and a walk through the Disney
world Castle without worrying about forced perspective.
9. There Is a Special Shade of Green
Throughout the park, a special shade of green is used and that is called “Go Away
Green.”This is in addition to more than 20,000 different colors. It is a light green that is favored by most
painters that work inside Disneyland.
Therefore, make sure that you take note of this shade of color next time you are about to
try your favorite Disneyland ride. Also, make sure to note whether you notice this shade of green of any of the
old Disney cartoons or the new Disney cartoons or the Disney cartoon movies.
10. The Haunted Mansion is Filled with Illusions
That place that is called the Haunted mansion is a place that is filled with illusions,
which is best experienced during Disney Merry Christmas time—or any other time for that matter.
The eyes that follow you around the mansion in addition to the ghosts that roam around there
are all illusions, making it the perfect Disneyland Halloween attraction. Make sure, therefore, that you keep
this in mind next time you find yourself curious about The Haunted Mansion.
