    Disneyland is so small, some of the rides are actually outside the park. The HM in Anaheim has a stretching room that really takes you below ground. There you walk in a tunnel under the park to the actual ride building. The house you see is just a facade.

    The best I can do is how in Pirates, the Cavran Scence is longer(then Disney World) because you leave the park to the show building, same thing for the Jail Scence.

    I know everyone knows it but its the best I can do, YOU STOLE MY MATTERHORN ONE!!!

    Not even a half-court. I saw a show about it on Comcast On-Demand. It's really exaggerating to call it a court. It's just an odd wedge shaped room with one backboard.

    Re: Your best Disneyland secret!

    In Sleeping Beauty Castle, just before you enter Fantasyland, there's a brass spike in the ground... that's the exact center of Disneyland before Mickey's Toontown was added.

    I have a picture somewhere, I'll find it and put it up!

    Take a look into the oval mirror inside the Mad Hatter. There is an animatronic Cheshire Cat character that is hidden behind the mirror.

    The Dream Suite in Disneyland is above New Orleans Square

    Again, just like the Cinderella Castle Dream Suite, it was designed by Walt himself.

    I like the Hidden Mickey in the stars over the jacuzzi

    Here's the exact center of Disneyland

    Your best Disneyland secret!-centerofdisneylandgoldspike.jpg

    The spike is right about there... Behind Walt.

    The backside of Sleeping Beauty Castle is actually the front so entering from Fantasyland, you're going through the entrance. Coming through from Main Street, you're going in the back.

    Re: Your best Disneyland secret!

    The drawbridge on Sleeping Beauty Castle has only been raised twice. Once on opening day and once for the rededication of Fantasyland

    Although Disneyland may be smaller than WDW, it's heart is much bigger

    Good one. When in New Orleans Sqare Station you hear a telegram go off. That is actully "telegraming" the speech Walt said on Opening day.
