Subscribing. Sadly, I have nothing to contribute, but reading all of this is making me more excited for my trip. As for the Liberty Square fact, that's really interesting!

Don't they pump smells, like a cookie smell out of the bakery, to entice you in too??

Disney is amazing....

Yes. On my most recent Keys to the Kingdom tour a few weeks back, in the Utilidors, the guide showed us the container and piping, labeled "Main Street Bakery window air". It is the yummy smell you get while walking past the bakery.

Best Thread Ever

They even mess with the animals heads.....

I was speaking with CM in the petting zoo/vet section of Animal Kingdom and I asked how they get all the animals back to their living quarters at the end of the day. He asked if I had a dog. I do. He asked if that dog comes every time he hears the cookie jar open. That sure he does. He said "EXACTLY". He said that each species has there own sound they play over loud speaker that they know to come back to their living quarters area because its feed time. He said it is amazing tho, every day at 5PM, you will be amazed to find most of the animals just waiting at the gate before the sound even goes off. Thought this was pretty cool.

In AK, behind the employee commissary, is a lone tall pine tree which is actually a Nextel Tower.

This is so interesting! Really makes me want to do the tour!

I didn't notice this at the fountains when I was there but I read he has the water fountains side by side and the spouts in an agle where parent and child will naturally looking at each other while getting drinks. It was to build a bonding moment.

The funny thing to me is that the baked goods smell is always stronger outside than it is inside thanks to this!

To me, the most pervasive psychological aspect (and perhaps the most scary) is the strong, almost psychotic customer loyalty that Disneyphiles exhibit about all things Disney.

It goes beyond preference -- it's practically a syndrome... (no pun intended).

When we took the KTTK tour a couple of years ago, the CM told us the red sidewalks on Main Street were that way for people with depth perception trouble. The red made it easier to see where the road merged into the curbing or the ramping.

Over behind BTMR there is a huge building that is a trash compactor. I mean HUGE! As tall at the ride in front of it. You can see it if you really look for it at the gate that the parade comes out of by BTMR. The building is painted "Go Away Green". Meaning that whenever a person catches sight of it, they immediately look away from it. I swear we never noticed this building until he pointed it out to us & we've been at least 12 times by the time we took the tour. Disney works on all the colors with Kodak to determine the best ones.

These two tidbits always facinated me.

If you are transitioning between Frontierland & Adventureland, the side of the buildings reflect whichever land you are currently in.

Haha yes to the depth perception thing....mine is terrible so it helps me trip slightly less at WDW.

Go away green = same color that the door of club 33 is at Disneyland. Sooo many people never notice it.

This is intentionally. Walt wanted the entrance to MK to be like coming to the movies. Pardon me if I get any details wrong, I'm trying to remember from my KTTK tour.

From in front of the entrance you cannot see anything inside, just like the closed curtains at the movies (used to be at least). Then as you walk under the tunnels there are "movie posters" highlighting upcoming attractions. The smell of popcorn is of course there just like the movies. They sell it just inside on the left I believe. Finally as you walk down main street the names on the windows serve as the opening credits honoring those who helped make the "film".
