10 Walt Disney World Fascinating Facts was one of the very first articles we published here on Modern Life is Good. We have decided to give the article a cleanup for 2020. Walt Disney World is currently in a state of change as it continues its reopening plan. However, these resort facts remain interesting and relevant. Impress your friends with our Walt Disney World Facts.
Walt Disney World is Massive
The Walt Disney World resort is about the size of San Francisco, and to date, only around a third of the site has actually been developed. Walt Disney purchased the original land for around 5 Million dollars.
Talking about San Francisco. San Francisco is actually the home of the Walt Disney Family Museum. Coincidence?
Disney World Tunnels
There are service corridors under Disney World that allow cast members to walk between the different areas. Also, this allows theming to be maintained in specified areas. Ever wondered why you never see a headless Mickey Mouse?

There is never a trash can more than 30 steps from where you are at Walt Disney World. Walt Disney implemented this after working out that people would drop litter if they needed to walk more than 30 steps to a trash can. I have attempted this on several occasions, and I think it is probably true.
You can’t buy gum in Walt Disney World. Singapore famously has a ban on chewing gum. However, unlike Singapore, there are no restrictions on bringing gum into the parks at Walt Disney World.
Expedition Everest & Tower Terror are both the same size
They are both 199 feet. Structures over this need a red flashing light on top due to aviation laws. The Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel is 257 feet and has a flashing light.
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride was an original park favorite, and there were many protests before its closure. In 1999, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh opened on the site. Mr. Toad can still be seen in a picture at Winnie the Pooh, where he hands over the deeds to Owl.
Mr. Toad makes an appearance at one other location in the Magic Kingdom. In the pet cemetery of the Haunted Mansion, there is a tombstone for J.Thaddeus Toad.
2020 has been a difficult year at Walt Disney World, but over 10 million hamburgers & 1.5 million turkey legs are usually consumed at Walt Disney World.
Amazingly Walt Disney World would be the 45th largest food chain in the world if it became a food service company
The reopening of Walt Disney World has meant a reduction in crowds to maintain social distancing. However, the parks at Walt Disney World are usually bustling.
The Magic Kingdom occasionally reaches maximum capacity on Public Holidays. The maximum capacity is allegedly 100000 guests. On average, just under 50,000 people attend the Magic Kingdom each day. The Magic Kingdom is the most popular theme park in the world.
There are thousands of Hidden Mickeys throughout the resort, and more are added with each change. A Hidden Mickey is a representation of Mickey Mouse that has been inserted subtly into the design of a ride, attraction, or another site.
Why not see how many Hidden Mickeys you can find on your next visit? They are located everywhere apart from Pandora.
