Obviously, I like Disneyland. I may even go so far as to say that I love Disneyland (though writing about it a couple times a week sometimes makes me love it a little bit less).
– Back in the day, Main Street was home to both a tobacco shop and The Wizard of Bras, a women's lingerie store. The former sat in the shop that the cigar store Indian now stands in front of (duh), and the latter was located just north of the Silhouette Studio.– The stuffed heads of Max, Buff and Melvin from Country Bear Jamboree are hung/hidden on a wall in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh as a nod to the old ride it replaced.
– In the Trophy Room in Club 33, the chandeliers that hang over the tables have microphones hidden in the center of them. The original idea was to have someone listening in on whatever conversations were taking place around the room, and then “communicate” with patrons through an audio animatronic vulture that still sits perched on a branch in the corner. Eventually, this idea was stopped because of, you know, that whole “invasion of privacy” stuff.– When you first walk in the park, the spot where the flagpole now sits in the center of Town Square was originally the home of a bandstand. But when Walt realized it blocked the view of Sleeping Beauty Castle he had it moved to where Carnation Plaza now stands. He then moved it again to where Jungle Cruise is. When that ride expanded, Disney donated the bandstand to the City of Anaheim. The bandstand still exists today at Roger's Gardens in Corona Del Mar. Learn more about it here.
