Ok guys (and gals), I'd like to try a new game here, and let's see how far we can get. The next poster will put up a disney fact. Can be anything pertaining to Disney. Let's see how long we can keep it going.

I'll start....

Did you know- Walt Disney only attended one year of high school?

Did you know- Walt Disney's own voice was the first film voice of Mickey Mouse, and he continued speaking for Mickey for many years?

Even after Walt had long-since retired from regularly doing this job for the cartoons in theaters,
he returned to the recording studio to voice all of the show "opens and closes" as Mickey on the original Mickey Mouse Club TV shows.

Here's mine:

Did you know that Paul Winchell, the original voice of Tigger, was a ventriloquist star on TV and in movies in the 1950s and 60s? He was also an amateur medical inventor who held several patents in artificial organ development.

Did you know that Small World was originally sponsered by Mattel.

I know that several trivia sites say this, but it's not entirely true. Magic Kingdom's IASW opened with the park on October 1, 1971. Mattel didn't begin its sponsorship of the attraction until 1991, and it only lasted until 1999. Mattel also sponsored Disneyland's version during roughly the same time period.

Did you know that Paul Winchell (the original voice of Tigger) won a Grammy in 1974 for "Best Children's Recording"? It was for the song, "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers". That song should have won a Grammy for Song of the Year!!! :laughing: ;)

Did you know that "Feed the Birds" (from Mary Poppins) was one of Walt Disney's all-time favorite songs? Robert Sherman, the composer of the song, said "The point of the song- that it doesn't take much to give a little kindness- was what really registered with Walt." Awwww!! I love that!! :)

The Tower of Terror is 199 feet tall. While it was being built, it was struck by lightning

Also, it's 199 feet tall, because if it were 200, a light would have to be placed on top for airplanes to see it, and they felt a light would detract from the overall feel of the building.

Did you know that Bette Davis and Angela Lansbury were considered for the part of Mary Poppins? This was because P.L. Travers, the author of the Mary Poppins books, wanted the character to be cold and intimidating (like the Mary Poppins in her books). Walt Disney eventually decided that the nanny should be cheerful and warm. This decision outraged Ms. Travers. (I am very tempted to comment on this, but I won't. :rolleyes1 )

Did you know that when Walt Disney did his first Mr. Lincoln audioanimatronic, for the Worlds Fair in 1964, during one of the first performances a hydrolic line in his chest broke (Lincoln's, to be specific, not Walt Disney's :lmao: ). The fluid was red and leaked through Lincoln's shirt. At first, people thought that Disney was reenacting Lincoln's assassination. Needless to say, Disney quickly changed things so that Lincoln would appear to just "sit down" and changed out the fluid color so that it would NOT suddenly look like blood was erupting from Mr. Lincoln.

My favorite facts I got from a Disney trivia book

Did you know cast members playing Snow White and Ariel are not allowed to get a tan even when there off duty.Snow white cant because she must have fair skin and Ariel cant because mermaids do not have tan lines

Did you know if you look up to the top floor of the Haunted mansion ( above the door) when your passing it at night you might just see two shadows walking by holding a lantern.

Did you know NO gasoline powerd vehicles are allowed in the tunnels below the Magic kingdom except one and armored car thats picks up the money collected each day but its a tight fit the driver only has about 4 inches on either side of his car in which to maneuver his vehicle.

Did you know that towering four stories over DinoLand U.S.A. at Animal Kingdom is Dino-Sue- an exact replica of the largest Tyrannosaurus Rex ever discovered.

Well... not quite. Dino-Sue stands about 14 feet tall and is on a pedestal that is about 4 feet tall. So she has a top height of no more than 20 feet in Dino-Land.

You may be thinking of the Brachiosaurus skeleton that serves as the entry way to DinoLand as part of the Oldengate bridge... or you could be thinking of the giant Cementosaurus that serves as the entry way into DinoRama.

How bout this... did you know that the actual Dino Sue skeleton can be found in the Field Museum in Chicago and that the head is actually on display on a different floor than the rest of the body. In addition, part of the preservation process of Dino-Sue's bones was done in DinoLand when the park first opened - in the area that is now home to the Dino-Rama.

Did you know... that Disney's bus system runs completely on biofuel?

Did you know... that Disney recycles almost all of the dung produced by many of the animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge (all except carnivores and primates due to health regulations) and will turn it into fertilizer to be used within the parks?

Did you know... that Disney has the largest African Elephant herd in North America? They are also one of the most successful breeders having been the home to three African Elephant births.

Did you know... that on Expedition Everest, guests never make it to Everest but are actually turned back on their journey while passing through the Forbidden Mountain? Thus, the seemingly topmost peak on the attraction is the Forbidden Mountain - not Everest. Everest is the smaller peak on the right hand side that does not have any "snow" on it because the actual peak of Everest lacks snow due to being above the precipitation line.

Did you know... that I know waaaaaay too much useless info from DAK? :thumbsup2

I just realized this when I read it in the paper the other day....of course being from ny and being one of the most taxed states in the nation, figures that I wouldn't have known that.

Also makes you think of the millions (i imagine trillions) of taxes that all the tourist parks pay together- including UO, SW, WDW, BG, etc. I'll gladly take a 1/32 fraction of that amount thank you very much.

If I'm not mistaken, that was just to get into the gate. You had to buy tickets for the rides. They were A, B, C, D & E classifications. The more expensive rides were the E tickets. My first trip to Disney was in 78 or 79, I can't quite remember, by then the rides were all inclusive but it still wasn't half the park that it is today.

Did you know that Mickey was originally going to be named Mortimer but Walt didnt like it

Did you know that it was actually his wife Lillian that didn't like the name and came up with Mickey on the train ride home from New York?

DYK that Walt never really animated Mickey or many of his cartoons after the mid-20's? The first Mickey Mouse cartoons were almost entirely animated by Ubbe (later changed to Ub) Iwerks.

Did you know that Ubbe Iwerks had to create the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, Plane Crazy, in secret because Walt's studio was still contractually obligated to produce Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons?

Walt Disney World's Space Mountain is the slowest of all the Space Mountains in the Disney theme parks, with Anaheim and Tokyo's reaching 30.5MPH and the Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris topping out at about 43.5 MPH!

Goodness, what we have been missing out on!!!

I'll have to look for an answer on this...now that you've peaked my curiosity.

For today, did you know that the jolly headhunter who shows up near the end of Jungle Cruise is known as “Trader Sam.”

the original specifications suggest that SM had a top speed of 27 mph. It is possible this might not be accurrate with any rehabs that have taken place over the years...but probably close.
