I am with you.

I hated to see the plastic robot game gone too. That was one of my favorite things to tell people--you could actually get a little souvenir for free!

We will always to Innoventions. I think people really miss something when they skip those two buildings. If you stop to take the time to do actually do all the stuff, not only are you learning, but you are having fun and playing games!

I hate to ask for a copy of the list via this thread because I know I'm not supposed to, but since I don't have enough posts to email/PM, can you please email me the list at itsamanda132 @ gmail . com? (Had to use the spaces because I can't post an email address either, apparently.) Thank you!

I picked up a book the other day and flipping through it, it reminded me very much of this thread! It's called The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World by Susan Veness, and the entire book is about the little details and "secrets" throughout WDW. It's really great, and I thought fans of this thread might like it.

Tell me something I don't know so I can make the magic happen for my DH one more time...Please I don't know any more minutia...

In the MK parking lot, only 6 of the 7 dwarfs have a lot named after them. Do you know which dwarf is missing and why???

Do you know there are only two figures that represent the United States in It's a Small World? Do you know what they are?

I know the parking one! It is DOC because they were worried too many people would think it was where you go for the boat dock.

They call for a "Protein Spill" when someone throws up!

Ok, not trivia, but we found it pretty hysterical.

Also, Mr. Toad has two nods in the Magic Kingdom Park... one is in the Whinnie the Pooh ride where Mr. Toad is painted as giving Owl the deed, and the other is in the pet cemetary at the Haunted Mansion, where a statue of Mr. Toad is in the back.

In Pooh's Playhouse (unsure of proper name) inside of the tree in the door is a small submarine in tribute to the submarine ride that used to occupy that space.

Buy or check out the book "The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World." It has a lot of trivia and a lot of information about all of the amazing little details that the Imagineers put into all of their work. I already knew a bit of what was in the book but there was still loads of stuff that I'll be looking for 2 days from now!!
