    Disney Tidbit of the Day

    In the early days of Disneyland, the park had pay toilets. It was believed that people expected to pay for restrooms because they were supposedly cleaner. Walt put an end to pay toilets ... and insisted they be kept spotless

    Walt Disney personally selected Richard Fleischer (son of his old competitor in animation, Max Fleischer) to direct the live-action film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    Don Iwerks (the son of legendary Disney animator Ub Iwerks) is the co-founder of Iwerks Entertainment. He has been associated with many accomplishments, including the 360-degree CircleVision camera and projection systems that he worked on with his father. Don's department designed and manufactured hundreds of unique film projection systems for Disney theme parks and also worked on developing the projection systems for Disney's Star Tours simulator.

    It took more than 650 Walt Disney Imagineers more than 350,000 hours (the equivalent of 40 years of time) to develop Epcot's Mission: Space.
