    Young Walt Disney's first pet was a Maltese terrier, on his family's farm in Marceline, Missouri.

    And that last figure is why the archives must love me right now. After PLENTY of research on my part..... ask Lou about it.... Walking the center the entire way around is 1.0 miles. Still have not heard back of where/how Disney got 1.2. Awaiting the response.

    As far as I can tell, the reason it is supposed to be approx. 1.2 miles, is it is actually 2 kilometers. That's probably measured around the circumference where the pavilions are, and not necessarily the shortest walking distance.

    I did lots and lots and lots of research.... Even the outermost loop is only 1.1 the inside varies because of all the nooks and crannies and is really the longest.

    That's why i am waiting on the response from Disney. -insert extended Jeopardy song here-
