    Although it was always rumored that Marilyn Monroe was the model for Disney's Tinker Bell ... actress Margaret Kerry actually was.

    The Disneyland television series moved from ABC to NBC in 1961 to take advantage of that network's ability to broadcast in color.

    There is wind gauge installed in Disney World's Wilderness Lodge's marina. The computer that runs the geyser senses wind speed for each "eruption" and adjusts the height of the water. This prevents any blowing water from hitting the balconies of lake view rooms.

    As early as 1963, Walt Disney sent his brother, Roy, with several close friends and business associates to find a place where he could build his new park. His team traveled across the country in secrecy, checking into hotels under assumed names, and making anonymous inquiries on available land.

    Rule #1 for a successful Mad Tea Party:

    Always have plenty of clean teacups and empty chairs. When your cup is empty, simply move to the next chair.

    Rule 2 for a successful Mad Tea Party

    Remember to be invited, or else it is very rude (indeed!) to sit at the table.

    In 1976, Disney aired a bicentennial TV special entitled America on Parade, hosted by comedian Red Skelton.
