A while back I scoured the forums and created a list of Disney notes that I printed and took with us to Disneyland. Here's a reformatted list which is a compilation of information gathered elsewhere on the site (spelling corrections and formatting changes applied): If you have other secrets, I will gladly add them to this original post. Hidden Restroom Myths & Facts These bathrooms are located by the Cast Members Enterance near the tunnel going to Rancho Zocalo and located in Carnation Plaza Gardens on Main Street U.S.A. They ARE NOT located on a guide map as a restroom, but located on a guide map as a baby changing center. Well the real secret bathrooms are behind the Bank, in a little alleyway (I'm totally serious, there is an alley in DL) where NO ONE EVER VENTURES. EVER. I've been there on summer days and during the holiday season and there's maybe two other people there at one time. (And then, she realizes, this little secret she has kept to herself is now out, and is no longer secret. Unless she kills everyone on this thread, which she considers, but decides it's too much trouble to track the IP numbers of everyone and find good hiding spots for the bodies so she just decides to find a new bathroom.) The secret bathroom is in the courtyard for the Tiki Room next to the front door. The bathroom is there because the Tiki Room was originally suppose to be a restaurant with a bird show above you while you ate. Locations - In Alphabetical Order Astro Orbitor When you look at the tail fins of the 12 rockets, notice that each has a different sign of the zodiac. Autopia On Autopia there is a mouse-crossing complete w/ mouse holes in the curb Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters In that white circle is the (secret) hidden target on Zurg. It's also in the same location on the Zurg in the final battle with Buzz. A couple inches below his (Z) and in between the space on his chestplate. It scores 50,000 a hit. 5-14-08: I can confirm the 50,000 hit can be done even by a terrible shot like myself, I landed it once on him. I tried to spam it but there's not much time to hit it repeatedly. Photo score proof link provided at: http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/kk318/DisneyMystic/buzz.jpg Frontierland In Frontierland, when entering from the fort gate and walking towards the river, look up to the the left and you'll see the Davy Crockett Coonskin Hat Company, F. Parker, Proprietor window, which is a tribute to Fess Parker and his Disney work. Indiana Jones Adventure While in queue for the Indiana Jones ride, you'll enter a dark cave area with warning signs for bats. If you look into the caverns, you'll see bats hanging from the ceiling. Look for the caverns with a black light glow. As you walk through the Spike Room, there is a big spike (pole) with a sign that says not to touch it. If you pull on it (and it's working that day) you'll hear a thundering crash and the ceiling drops a few inches, as if you disturbed the gods. Once the hallways open up, you'll enter an area that has a circular queue with a trunk like thing in the middle. There's a sign that says not to pull the rope. If you pull on it, you'll hear voices of men working and telling you not to pull it. After about the 3rd pull, you'll hear one yell and fall. Right after the screening room where you see the safety video, as the line takes you in a U-turn, look back into the screening room, above the projector to the left. You might be able to see a faint outline of Eyore. It is an old parking lot sign since Indy was built on top of an old parking lot. While on the ride, when you enter the first room with skeletons, turn completely around and look at the skeletons on the wall. "Bones" has Mickey ears on. This one took me several attempts to finally see him. You'll get your best view by sitting in the last row, on the driver's side. In the queuing line for Indiana Jones, deep inside, in the middle of all of the bamboo poles, there is one that looks a little crooked. Pull on it hard, and the cavern will boom like a cave in. First time someone did it, it scared me to death! It's a well, not a rock. It's in the room right before the one with the safety video. There are 3 sets of sayings. When you first pull on it you hear someone telling you that there are people working and don't pull on the rope. The next time they are meaner about it. Finally the third time you hear them falling. Just like the pole, it takes a while to reset, even in between the 3 sayings. I think I remember somewhere in this thread that there was a Dumbo sign in Indiana Jones (cause the attraction s in that part of the old parking lot). I was there last weekend and asked a CM and she showed me the sign. It is actually an Eyeore sign! In that last section of Indiana, where the film is. it's back where the projector is, ask a CM to show you with a flash light. Innoventions You may recognize the voice of Tom Morrow. It is the actor Nathan Lane, who did the voice for Timon in The Lion King. Also, if you can't read the note in his pocket, it says "Buy 10 W 30". If you have the time, watch the robot after he gives his spiel and the other guests have moved on. He will move and act like a person who is bored and waiting for his next group of guests! Mark Twain Riverboat You can 'pilot' the Mark Twain! Be the first on up to the captains door and knock politely - or ask the cast members that are on duty there to let you pilot the boat. You'll ge to pull the whistles and horns, use the huge wheel, and take the whole trip around the river up there! There is even a guest log book to sign in on. As for captaining the Mark Twain River Boat... we did it once. As we were waiting for the trip to begin, a CM tapped my shoulder and asked how many there were in my party. I thought it was an odd question (as none of them had jumped overboard or anything) but when I answered his question, he offered us a chance to pilot the ship. On our trip through the Rivers of America, the captain told us all sorts of DL trivia (and some funny jokes) Mickey's House When you enter Mickey's house, the first room contains a passport with stamps from everywhere a Disneyland is located. New Orleans Square - Train Station In New Orleans Square at the train station, you'll hear a telegraph signal, the message is Walt's opening day speech (I've only heard this once and it's never been confirmed). The telegraph that keeps clicking at the New Orleans Square railroad station is actually the first two sentences of Walt's Disneyland opening-day dedication speech ("To all who come to Disneyland, welcome. Here, age relives fond memories of the past, and here, youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.") It is not modern Morse Code but land line telegraphy as used by railroad telegraphers to communicate with train dispatchers and other telegraphers at other stations. Although the Morse code message at the telegraph office of the New Orleans railroad station only plays a small part of Walt's Disneyland Opening Day speech, it used to play an even smaller part until an error below was pointed out to Disney. A ham radio operator noticed the sound from the telegraph office of the New Orleans train station seemed to repeat a definite "message" and not just random dots-n-dashes like a lot of places do. He decided to try and figure out the message. He searched the web and only found this page which originally stated erroneously that the message was Walt's entire opening day speech, but the message was way too short to be that. Some years ago Disney had converted the system from a long looped tape system to a digitized recording. Apparently, the engineer who did it listened to the old tape until he decided that the message was repeating... but he got it wrong. But, thanks to the work of George Eldridge (N6RVC) it now plays correctly and non-stop at the New Orleans train station. Park Entrance The entrance plaza to the park was intentionally designed to mimic entering a movie theater. Walt wanted people to believe that they were literally walking into live, 3D versions of his movies. Walking into the two tunnels (under the train tracks) simulates having to walk down the side aisles of a movie theater. As soon as you get out of the tunnels, you smell popcorn from the carts in Main Street Plaza, another intentional movie reference. The two entry tunnels (as mentioned above) are nicknamed "Voms" (short for vomitoriums) by CMs. For some unknown reason, kids frequently throw-up in the tunnels. Walt kept an apartment in the park, above the Fire Station. If you look in the window, there is always a light left on for him. The Partners Statue (Walt and Mickey holding hands) in the hub was designed after Walt's death. It symbolizes Walt pointing out the way for Mickey to continue with the company after his death. Disneyland is actually built on a slight slope. why? Because Walt wanted people to work their way into the park, going uphill. This also makes the illusion that all the building is taller. Walt also wanted the downhill to make it easier to go home knowing ppl would be tired. If you look up the pole at the fire station, you will see that you can't climb up it, there is a barrier up there. They had to do this, as people kept climbing up it! Pirates of the Caribbean When Pirates first opened, most of the skeletons were real. It was easier in that day to get true skeletons than make your own. They have, over the years been replaced...but there is still one human skull in Pirates. It's over the bed in the Captain's Quarters. You probably all know that the building above POTC was built as an apartment for Walt but he passed before it was finished, its now used as a gallery (last time i went they had props and stuff from the Haunted Mansion film) and if you ask one of the employees they will give you a tour of the apt. Theres a door way in the apt. that leads into Club 33. Sleeping Beauty's Castle In front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle is a plaque celebrating the 40th Birthday of Disneyland. Beneath that plaque is a time capsule with a lot of 1995 stuff. Snow White Outside the Snow White ride there is a 'golden' book and apple - try to take the apple and see what happens! In Fantasyland, when standing next to the sword in the anvil, look about the Snow White ride, the Evil Queen pulls the drapes apart and peeks through the second story window at the crowd. Snow White - and Enchanting Musical - Although most people flock to sit in the middle rows of the theater, one of the best places is the front row on the far right side. Characters from the musical come down to shake the hands of children sitting here! Also the apple in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs dark ride all ways gets stolen. They have tried all sorts of ways to keep people from stealing it. Soarin' Over California On the ride Soarin' Over CA - the person that hits the golf ball is Michael Eisner, and the ball has a tiny hidden mickey on it. There's also a pirate ship in the bay when you fly over the Golden Gate Bridge, I was told by a CM it is supposed to be Peter Pan's/Capt. Hook's. - Wendylady36 Space Mountain Space Mountain is sunk into the ground nearly 20 feet so that it does not dwarf Sleeping Beauty's Castle Star Tours At the end of the Star Tours ride, just as your star speeder is about to crash into a fuel truck, a man in the control booth ducks down, then stands up and picks up the phone. The man is George Lucas! While waiting to ride Star Tours, listen for the announcer to page Sacul Egroeg - that's George Lucas backwwards. The droids working and talking to the guests through the Star Wars queue were once animatronic geese in America Sings! Look at their feet.... they are still webbed! The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh On the Winnie the Pooh ride at Disneyland, if you turn around after you pass the scene where Pooh is pigging out on honey, you can see 3 animals that were from the Country Bear Jamboree (a tribute). Tower of Terror On the Tower of Terror when it first opened if you looked at the rails on the stairs in the boiler room it had scratch marks (like if someone was being dragged) on them and HELP etched on random areas. Also, when you are by the wall in the same area you can hear a young girl asking for help. General - Not Location Specific As one person already said, you can't purchase gum anywhere in Disneyland, but did you ever notice all of the gum on the ground. If you look very closely, you will notice that some of the "gum" on the ground from Main Street to the Small World is actually fake! Magnetic sensors that look like gum on the street were actually placed there to tell when parade floats enter and exit specific "zones" along the parade route. The first time I noticed a cat, it was near the haunted mansion, and it was black. I thought it was there for ambiance. I asked about it, and was told that years ago Cats were brought into Disneyland to help control a mouse problem. When the solution did not work, there was an attempt to eliminate the cat problem, but that failed also. When you walk by the Candy store you say yummy what's that good sell? Sometimes they are NOT making candy. What they do is pump sugar air out. They boil hot water with sugared added. If you look closely the vents are right under the windows. There is a tunnel under Disneyland. It runs from under Space Mountain to the restaurants in back of the park in Frontierland. It is use as a service tunnel for food distribution for the restaurants. CM walk from back stage of one part of the park to the other. Its not very impressive just a tunnel and pipes and wires. The first tunnel (TLT Tunnel) starts behind Innoventions and goes to CircleVision (the stairs come up on the Matterhorn side of Circlevision by the tables. It is mainly to get supplies to TLT (or Club Buzz if you want). The other "Vid tunnel" goes from behind Videopolis (Fantasyland Theater) and goes to the large service gates at Big Thunder Trail. You can get a list of all the hidden mickey locations at city hall.
