    During the early planning stages of Disneyland, a Thomas A. Edison Square was to be built as an addition to the Main Street area.

    Walt's cozy apartment above the firehouse in Disneyland included a sitting room with built in sleeper sofas, a dressing room, a bath, and a kitchenette. It's Victorian decor reflected Lillian Disney's tastes. A fire pole led downstairs for a quick exit; however it soon had to be blocked up after a curious visitor climbed up it and into the abode.

    Kathryn Beaumont the voice of Alice in Wonderland also portrayed Alice on film ... but only for the benefit of the Disney animators, as a live-action reference for their work.

    "I think our pleasure comes from survival. The first thing we strive for as an infant is this kind of life experience, and it's the last thing we want to give up. We strive for the experience of being alive."

    One of Walt's favorite vacation places was Smoke Tree Ranch. The tie that Walt is wearing on Partners bears the monogram of the resort STR.

    Walt Disney World Inside Out appeared on The Disney Channel starting on 6/7/1994. The host was Scott Herriott. It provided a wacky and witty offbeat look of life at WDW.

    In the early days of Disneyland, Mr. Toad did not appear in Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, nor did Peter Pan or Snow White feature in their own rides. Disney's idea was that riders would view these attractions from the lead character's point of view. Hardly anyone understood this concept, and now each character makes a brief appearance.

    In Disneyland's early days, Walt had an agreement with the city of Anaheim that no outside buildings could be tall enough to be visible from within the park.
