Sorcerer Mickey at The Great Movie Ride

The Great Movie Ride (an original opening day attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios), features a scene from Fantasia that includes swirling winds.

Why the wind?

That portion of the ride was originally designed to be the tornado scene from The Wizard of Oz, but was changed to feature Sorcerer Mickey at the last minute.

The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Grates

On the standby line at WDW's Rock 'n Roller Coaster, there are metal grates along the wall in the queue. The grates allow air from the indoor attraction to escape ... thus cooling off guests who are waiting outside!

Madame Leota at Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

At Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, the image of Madame Leota is that of former Disney Imagineer Leota Toombs Thomas. But Madame's voice is supplied by Eleanor Audley (the voice of Maleficent in Disney's Sleeping Beauty).

"Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat call in the spirits wherever they're at."
-Madame Leota

The California DisneySea


Instead of Disney's California Adventure, Disney considered building DisneySea - a contrasting park to Disneyland, to be built in Long Beach next to the RMS Queen Mary (which Disney at the time owned). The park was to have led to a permanent West Coast ship in the Disney Cruise Line.

Nowadays, you can find DisneySea in Tokyo Disneyland Resort!
