Random Thursday

Okay, we're about halfway through the article written by Hilary White regarding all the Disney World Facts! I would so loved to have been there when she talked to people. Because I mean, asking on the telephone would sooooo not do! No, no! In person interviews, and then play time at the HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH! ;)

  • There are 4,000 acres of gardens and maintained park landscapes.--That's 3,000 football fields. 
  • Epcot is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.--Walt Disney came up with the word in 1966, because he wanted Epcot Center to be a futuristic functional community where people actually lived. 
  • There are hidden Mickeys all over the parks.--There are even entire sites dedicated to logging all of the ones people have found.
  • You can camp at the happiest place on earth.--Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground boasts 409 cabins and 799 campsites for people to stay at.
  • The first movie ever filmed at Disney World was Ernest Saves Christmas.--The first movie filmed at then-unfinished Disney-MGM Studios, now called Disney Hollywood Studios, was Ernest Saves Christmas.
  • Cinderella's Castle is not built from stones.--The entire building is built out of fiberglass, concrete, steel, cement, and plaster. No bricks or stones were used at all.
  • The Liberty Oak in Liberty Square is the parent to over 500 other trees.--The trees all started out as acorns that were harvested from the tree.
  • Disney World's Beach Club Resort pool holds 750,000 gallons of water.--Stormalong Bay is the largest pool in the world with a sand bottom.

  1. A castle built using no stone- say it isn't so! I had no clue!

  2. I miss when MGM was a functioning studio! Disney seems lost with their plan for both Hollywood Studios/whatever they'll end up calling it and EPCOT.

  3. That's really interesting about EPCOT! I'm now curious to see what would have happened if it actually did become that community for people to live.
