    try checking out the windows in the entrance of MK, youll see the "credits" on the windows. If you dont know what I mean by credits consider that walking into MK is like entering a show, the train is the unvailing and the castle is what walt called the "wenie" (same theory behind holding a wenie in front of a dog). It draws you in and then there are things from each land that draw you into those areas.

    Im not positive if it was Roy or Walt that called it the wenie.

    Nevertheless check out those windows, its pretty cool. There are actually offices up there for security and park managment etc.

    it was walt who called it a wenie. And there's even more to the windows the very first window that you see is on the front of the railroad station. You can see it from the front gates. It is Walt's window. Then if you keep walking down Main Street there is another window for Walt above the plaza. They did this like book ends so the most important person would be first and last.

    Oh so many...

    The Frontierland buildings all have dates on them, to show when they were erected in storyline terms. In a typical Western town, the buildings would be constructed in the order of greatest importance. So for example, the saloon has a more recent date than the trading post.

    There are directional signposts near the entrance to Disney/MGM studios. They confusingly list "Orlando, FL" as being several thousand miles away. Confusing, that is, until you remember that you're in Hollywood, CA in the storyline. :-)

    Outside Echo Lake at MGM, the Dinosaur that's in the lake has left her foot prints on the shore.

    As you go from Frontierland to Liberty Square, you cross a small bridge, signifying crossing the mighty Mississippi river from the West to the East.

    As you ride the TTA, when your car goes past the Carousel of Progress, you can hear "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" in the background of the TTA soundtrack.

    The mosaics of the Cinderella story inside the castle feature one evil stepsister with a greenish tinge, one with a reddish tinge. Because they're "envious" and "enraged", you see.

    One of the doors on your way to the Journey Into Imagination ride is marked as the office of "Dean Finder", in tribute to the previous incarnation of the ride that starred the DreamFinder.

    Looking at Cinderella Castle from Main street, looking through the entrance way, immediately behind it is Cinderella's Golden Caroussel, to keep everything in visual alignment.

    At the fountain in the back of the castle, there is a statue of Cinderella and a mosaic behind her featuring a crown. If you crouch down to child-eyes level, the perspective makes it appear that the crown is resting on her head.

    The first few shots in the opening of Circle of Life are live-action renditions of the first few shots in the opening of The Lion King.

    I could go on and on and on, but I should really be, you know, working.

    On "it's a small world" there is a clown holding up a sign that says "help." He is to your left on a baloon with two clowns on it after the boat circles to the right in the room where the figures of all nations are in white. Some say that it's the song that has pushed him over the edge. Also, in Pinocchio Village Haus (a restraunt in Fantacyland) there is a window that gives diners a peek inside "its's a small world."
