10 Things You Didn't Know About Disney

1. The Beatles officially broke up at the Polynesian Resort

On vacation there in December of 1974, John Lennon signed the papers to make their dissolution legal

2. 14 of the original rides still operate today

1. It's a Small World

10. The Hall of Presidents

11. Country Bear Jamboree

12. Walt Disney World Railroad

13. Swiss Family Tree House

14. Peter Pan's Flight

3. The ground is painted to enhance photos

After an experiment was done by Kodak, Disney opted for a painted ground to make each photo appear more vivid.

4. The hitching posts on Main Street are painted every night

Disney is known for how much detail they put into everything but did you know that each night, the hitching posts are stripped and repainted so they look fresh the next morning for guests?

5. The plants in Tomorrowland are edible

Because Walt believed the future would be self-sustaining, each plant is edible.

6. You'll never see a store in a Disney Park selling gum

No store in Disney is allowed to sell gum, a caution to keep the pavement as clean as possible

7. Presidental Fashion

Each presidents outfit in the Hall of President's is made tailored to their time Era. If there wasn't a sewing machine in their time, then Disney makes their suit hand-stitched. Another fun fact....Bill Clinton is made to be wearing his favorite Iron Man Watch

8. Every costume is handmade

The Presidents aren't the only ones to get handmade costumes. Each costume at Disney is handmade to create authenticity and detail.

9 . Disneyland has about 200 Cats to help rodent control

All spayed and neutered and properly taken care of, Disneyland is actually home to about 200 cats..what did those cats do to get lucky with such a sweet gig?

10. A Lifetime Of Disney Hotels

If you were to stay in each Disney World Hotel Room for 1 night, it would take you about 68 years.....68 years in Disney? Doesn't sound too bad to me.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
