    In 1957, the average Disneyland guest shelled out $4.90 ($2.72 for rides & admission, $2 for food, and another 18 cents for various souvenirs).

    "Dalmatians" is probably the most-misspelled Disney word (most people spell it "dalmations"). However, it is a place ... so people and dogs from there are dalmatians.

    1787, the year that appears on top of the entrance to the Hall of Presidents refers to the year the U.S. Constitution was signed.

    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.
