  • From Disneyland in California to Walt Disney World in Florida, many tales have been told

  • over the past decades about these magical places.

  • Many tips and secrets have been shared on the dozens of Disney rides but have you ever

  • wondered if all these tales are true?

  • Does one of the teacups at Disneyland actually spin faster than the others?

  • Is Cinderella’s Horse secretly hidden on the Carousel at Magic Kingdom?

  • And what’s a basketball court really doing in the Matterhorn.

  • Well all these questions plus many more will be answered today.

  • Were gonna take a look at some Disney rides and attractions as we count down the Top 7

  • Disney Secrets & Myths: Debunked Pt 2.

  • Number 7 Main Street was designed to resemble a turn

  • of the 20th century American Town.

  • A common piece of information you hear often is that Main Street USA at Disneyland was

  • inspired off Walt’s hometown of Marceline Missouri.

  • This is even something weve mentioned here on the channel.

  • Even Tilly the ticket attendant’s name tag includes a little nod to Marceline, so this

  • has to be the land’s inspiration, right?

  • Well this is sort of a myth and is partially true.

  • Walt Disney wanted Main street to have the charm of a small town.

  • When Imagineer Harper Goff was tasked with designing Main Street, Walt used his hometown

  • of Marceline Missouri as an example of the small town feel he was after.

  • Well Goff wasn’t from Marceline but instead was from the small town of Fort Collin’s,

  • Colorado and Fort Collins is actually the true city that inspired the look of Main Street

  • USA.

  • When Goff showed Walt pictures he’d taken of Old town Fort Collins, Walt loved the look.

  • Its said that when you walk through Old Town Fort Collins there’s a sense of familiarity

  • if youve visited Disneyland.

  • Looking at what’s left today, immediately you can see the similarities in the architecture

  • and style.

  • Buildings such as the Firehouse Book Store and the former Linden Hotel among others served

  • as inspiration for the now iconic Disneyland Main Street.

  • So whenever you hear someone say Main Street was inspired by Marceline, Missouri this is

  • only partially true and the real inspiration is from old town Fort Collins in Colorado.

  • Number 6 At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Kilimanjaro

  • Safaris offers a great way to get up close with wild animals that aren’t audio animatronics.

  • Many consider this to be a once in a lifetime experience, and you wanna get to see as many

  • animals as possible.

  • There is a myth that the best time to see the animals on the safari is first thing in

  • the morning and at dusk- this tip can be found all over the internet and in many guide books.

  • Well according to an observational study done by Disney researchers published in 2014 on

  • the Disney parks blog they debunked the myth and said that the time of day does not significantly

  • change the probability of spotting animals.

  • These observations from Disney were taken since the park opened in 1998.

  • Weve personally always thought that the morning is the best time to visit the safari

  • but after taking rides all throughout the day, you realize that different species are

  • more active at different times.

  • Since youre dealing with live animals and not audio animatronics it also comes down

  • to a lot of luck.

  • There’s been times when weve been on in the morning and have seen tons of animals

  • but then other times where there’s not as many.

  • It’s said that in the afternoons you usually wont see as many animals but there’s been

  • rides in the afternoon where there’s been more animals than ever.

  • Every ride, no matter the time of day, is such a unique experience that there were always

  • animals around, but with this myth here I’m curious to know your thoughts and observations

  • on the ride.

  • Leave a comment down below!

  • Number 5 One popular Walt Disney world secret you may

  • have heard is that Cinderella has a special horse hidden on Prince Charming’s Regal

  • Carousel.

  • This horse with the gold ribbon on its tail is apparently Cinderella’s horse.

  • But this was just a myth started by Cast Members around the year 2000.

  • The carousel has 5 rows of horses and the A ring, the outside tier facing the guests,

  • are the more elaborately decorated horses.

  • As you move into the B, C, D and E tiers the horses become less elaborate but the horse

  • that’s claimed to be Cinderella’s horse is in the B tier.

  • According to Isle Vought, the former artist responsible for restoring and maintaining

  • the Carousel at Magic Kingdom, she said that if it truly was Cinderella’s horse it would

  • be on the outside ring and not an inner ring.

  • Vought’s design intention was never to have this be Cinderella’s Horse.

  • It would be much more elaborately decorated.

  • This Tweet in 2016, is the only time Disney themselves have ever awknoledged this as being

  • Cinderella’s horse, even the new backstory the attraction received in 2010 made no mention

  • of her horse.

  • With so many people now citing this myth it’s become an unofficial secret but when you look

  • into the facts it isn’t even really true.

  • Number 4 In Critter Country at Disneyland there’s

  • a little myth about some hidden animal figures on the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

  • Before this space was home to the Winnie the Pooh ride the Country Bear Jamboree entertained

  • guests until September of 2001.

  • Buff, Max and Melvin from the Country Bear Jamboree are the well known animal busts mounted

  • on wall and these characters can actually be found in The Many Adventures of Winnie

  • the Pooh.

  • As you leave the Hefelump and Woozles scene, take a look behind you and youll spot Buff,

  • Max and Melvin up on the wall.

  • A lot of people do miss these characters but there’s one common misconception- they actually

  • aren’t the old animatronics from the Country Bear Jamboree.

  • The current Winnie the Pooh gift shop used to be home to the Mile Long Bar and in the

  • Mile Long there were static, non animatronic busts of Buff, Max and Melvin.

  • These figures from the one were recycled and not the animatronics from the attraction.

  • If you look at the mouths, you can see there aren’t any joints that would have allowed

  • them to move.

  • So the next time youre on the ride, take a look behind you to spot these long lost

  • friends.

  • They still act as a little nod to the extinct attraction but they are in no way audio Animatronics.

  • Number 3 This next one sort of goes back to the topic

  • of illusions we spoke about in a previous video.

  • Now the stretching room at the Haunted Mansion is an iconic part of the attraction.

  • As the ghost host’s voice moves around the room he asks *insert* Well as you take a look

  • around the room is clearly stretching, its a convincing illusion and many people seem

  • to think the effect is achieved by being lowered on an elevator.

  • This is where the misconception comes into play because depending on the park you go

  • to, its stretching in a different direction.

  • The original Haunted Mansion opened at Disneyland in 1969 and the stretching room was designed

  • out of necessity.

  • The Disneyland railroad circles around the park and the only way to have room for the

  • Haunted Mansion was to build the main show building on the other side of the tracks,

  • but the entrance needed to be built inside the park boundaries.

  • So Imagineers came up with the idea of building the stretching room that uses an elevator

  • to lower you below the train tracks underground.

  • So yes, at Disneyland you are actually being lowered.

  • When it came time to build the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, there

  • was no need for an elevator since there was room for the show building inside the park

  • boundaries.

  • Imagineers wanted to keep the stretching room effect so in Florida the floor doesn’t move

  • at all.

  • There’s no elevator at Magic Kingdom and instead it’s the ceiling that rises to create

  • the stretching illusion.

  • Number 2 A common myth and secret you hear a lot about

  • the Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland is that there’s a basketball court at the top of

  • the mountain which is partially true.

  • We say partially because its only one hoop and a backboard with some floor markings,

  • which you can see here in this rare look from a program Disney produced called Fact or fiction.

  • So with there being only one hoop calling it a court is kind of a stretch.

  • So why is there this quote on quote basketball court in the matterhorn, well thats whats

  • gonna be debunked today.

  • The long time myth was that Disney built a basketball court in the Matterhorn to get

  • around a city of Anaheim building code.

  • It’s said that there was a law that structures could only exceed a certain height if it was

  • a spots facilities.

  • Since the Matterhorn stands 147 feet tall the myth is that a basketball court was installed

  • so they could call the building a sports facility.

  • This would get them around the law.

  • Well this isn’t true but the basketball court was the result of an idea from Walt

  • Disney himself.

  • The top 3rd of the matterhorn building was empty and Walt Disney thought about what the

  • strangest thing would be to occupy that space.

  • He asked matterhorn cast members and they said a basketball court, so Walt delivered.

  • For many years the area served as a break room for the matterhorn mountain climbers

  • and to this day that basketball net is still there.

  • Number 1 Taking a spin in one of the 18 teacups on

  • the Mad Tea Party at Disneyland is a doozy and there’s been a longtime myth that a

  • couple of the ride vehicles spin faster than the others.

  • Its been said that the purple colored teacup along with the Orange Diamond teacup spin

  • the fastest, and numerous books and tip lists have citied this as being true.

  • Back in 2004 Disney made the wheel inside the cup that guests manual spin much harder

  • to move allowing for much less spinning on the ride, but due to guests complaints, Disney

  • made it easier again to spin but it wasn’t restored to how it originally was.

  • So maybe prior to 2004 this was true but with that being said, when maintenance went back

  • to adjust the teacups in late 2004 they were all adjusted to have equivalent speed.

  • Werner Weis of Yesterdland says that this myth is just a myth and is no longer true,

  • if it ever actually was true.

  • Multiple Cast members whove worked the Mad Tea Party have stated that this myth is

  • false and they all spin at the same speed.

  • We even heard from some Fantasyland Cast Members that said this was something that was never

  • shared by Disney.

  • Some were not even aware of the myth but still said they all spin at the same speed.

  • Usually the more weight you have in a teacup the faster you spin, so cram as many family

  • members and friends into one teacup and youll really, really go for a spin!

  • So were you aware of any of these myths and secrets?

  • What’s one thing youve heard someone say about the Disney Theme Parks that is completely

  • false and not true.

  • I’d love to know!
