Three Secrets You (Probably) Didn't Know About DisneylandJaime Morrison Curtis
Disneyland holds a special place in many a grown-ups’ heart. We may all share memories – from riding “It’s A Small World” to frolicking in Tarzan’s treehouse back when it was still the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse – but there’s a few secrets from the park that you’ve probably never heard. I’ll reveal three fun disneyland secrets after the jump…
#1. The matterhorn is more than just a ride.
That’s right – there’s more to that snow-capped peak than bobsleds. Hidden inside matterhorn mountain is a gym, where cast members can work out, relax, and play basketball on a court with one goal.
#2. The train is trying to tell you something.
The telegraph at the new New Orleans train station is always ticking away, but did you know that the sound is actually trying to tell you something? Yep, it’s ticking out morse code of the speech Walt Disney gave on the park’s opening day. Pretty neat, right?
#3. There’s a secret club.
If you look carefully, just to the right of the Blue Bayou restaurant entrance and around the corner from the Pirates of the Carribean ride in New Orleans square, you’ll see a door with a subtle sign labeled simply “33.” Club 33 is Disneyland’s special hideaway open to members only – to gain admittance you’ll need to join a ten year waiting list and pay over $10,000 just to join. But membership has it’s privileges, Club 33 is the one restaurant at Disneyland to serve up alcohol.
While you may never see the inside of Club 33, if you have the Verizon Disney Mobile Magic app, you can unlock all the secrets your family will need for a perfect day at the park.
