5 Things You May Not Know About Disney World

5 Things You May Not Know About Disney World

It's a magical, mysterious world

Parks and Resorts

!When roaming the world famous Disney World parks this week, I couldn't help but wonder what secrets are kept within the walls of the parks. Secret passages? Rooms only accessible to certain people? I doubt that I am the only one who wonders what Mickey Mouse has to hide- so with a bit of research, here are 5 secrets of Disney World.

1. Liberty Square is truly authentic

The replica Liberty Bell and Liberty Tree are notable within the Magic Kingdom, as Liberty Square is one of the first lands that you may encounter. But staying true to the time period, there are really no bathrooms in Liberty Square. What about the bathrooms in the restaurants within Liberty Square? They are so far back, that they are technically in different lands.

2. Pay close attention when going to "Be Our Guest"

Every little girl's dream is to have dinner at the most popular restaurant in Magic Kingdom. But, if you look closely at the artwork, you'll see that they were created with the original animation cells. Also, the small children that line the ceiling are made after the children of Imagineers. Baby photos of the Imagineers are also there as well

3. Main Street Flags

If you walk down Main Street in Magic Kingdom you'll see the array of our nation's flags. But because they are left there permanently, each is missing either a start or a stripe (or some small detail) because of federal regulation, that says that the flags must be raised and lowered throughout the day.

4. The creation of the tower of terror

Supposedly the Imagineers who made the tower liked to play pranks. They would take a jar of pickled sausage and hide it on one another. And one day, the day that all of the props were being glued down, the jar was left behind. You can still see the jar behind the photo pickup area.

5. Buying Mickey Mouse

From Mickey t-shirts to mugs to keychains to stuffed animals, you can buy just about anything Mickey. But there's one thing you will never know- the true color of his shorts! The exact color is proprietary and will never be known!

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
