6. The boats used for the Plaza Swan Boats attraction, which operated seasonally at Disney’s Magic Kingdom from 1974-1983, now float in Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. (The Lake Eola “swan boats” are two-person pedal boats as opposed to the Plaza Swan Boats, which were 26-passenger, natural gas-powered boats that were put up for sale soon after the attraction closed. Their whereabouts are currently unknown.)

Cinderella Castle at Disney’s Magic Kingdom contains a secret apartment that was originally built for Walt Disney and his family. (Walt Disney died in 1966 – long before construction began on Cinderella Castle. The “Cinderella Castle Suite” used for Disney’s Year of a Million Dreams celebration was constructed out of an unused space in the castle.)

4. In case of a hurricane, the Cinderella Castle’s 10 spires can be easily removed to prevent them from damage. (Although the castle was built to withstand hurricane force winds, no part of it can be disassembled in the event of a hurricane.)

3. The plane from the Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios OR from the Jungle Cruise at Disney’s Magic Kingdom is the same one that was used in the famous final scene of the classic 1942 film, Casablanca. (Actually, the plane from Casablanca was just a movie prop.)

2. A Disney World guest was decapitated after standing up while riding Space Mountain. (According to some reports, it was a “test dummy” that had its head severed during testing by Disney Imagineers before Space Mountain was opened to the public.)

Walt Disney’s body lies cryogenically frozen in a secret chamber buried deep beneath Disney’s Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. (Disney was actually cremated and buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.)
