While there are many rumors many are unaware of the simple facts of everyday happenings in the park such as the underground tunnel system that helps employees and characters navigate to and from areas all over the park without having to fight the crowds.

Did you know about Walt’s personal apartment above the fire station on Main Street? Walt was adamant about overseeing work done at Disneyland so much that he would often stay overnight at the park. If you look in the window you will see an ever burning candle/light to signify Walt’s presence at the park. The Pirates of the Caribbean ride was the last project Walt personally oversaw during construction before passing away.

Since its opening in 1955, Disneyland has continued to grow exponentially. When the gates were first opened, only 18 attractions existed in the park. Today the park is approximately 85 acres with more than 60 attractions and welcomes 65,000 visitors on a daily basis. This totals 10 to 12 million visitors a year.
