You were warned. My brain is all Disney all the time. So what fun facts did you already know below?
Did you know…
…that the Walt Disney World Resort’s square footage is equal to the size of San Francisco?
…the first scene in Aladdin was not scripted? In fact, Robin Williams ad-libbed so many of his lines, the script was turned down for Best Adaptive Screenplay Academy Award nomination!
…Epcot stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow?
…that all the Disney Princesses are thought to be teenagers? Who said marrying young was a bad thing? Maybe I’m biased because I was 22 🙂 Check out their ages here!
…if you were to stay in every room at all the Disney resorts (assuming one room per night) it would take you over 68 years?
…that an estimated 1.65 million pairs of sunglasses have been turned into Disney’s Lost and Found over the years?
…when Disney World first opened it cost $3.50 to get into Magic Kingdom? It is now $85!
…Pumba from The Lion King was the first Disney character to fart in a movie? It happens 🙂
…that The Tree of Life, the centerpiece of Animal Kingdom, is 14 stories high and 50 feet wide at the trunk?
…the dance between Belle and the Prince at the end of the movie is reused animation from the dance between Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip? Looks like they were running out of time!
…you can find articles or characters from other Disney movies in a new film? For example in Princess and the Frog you can see the carpet from Aladdin being shaken up on a balcony and a float in the parade is King Triton from The Little Mermaid.
So there you have it! A bunch of random facts about Disney World and Disney movies! Did you happen to know any of them?
