Question about secret entrance through Rainforest Cafe
This will sound dumb but how do you get to the Rainforest Cafe to do this? Is that in Downtown Disney?

Old Prop from original Spaceship Earth sponsor
I was at WDW in mid December 2006 and I had the good fortune to see a relic of the original sponsor of Spaceship Earth.
I'm a huge fan of Spaceship Earth and rode it when it first opened in the summer of 1983 (it opened in October of 1982). Every time I visit WDW, I ride Spaceship Earth at least once (if not multiple times).
This last time, my older daughter and I rode it one night before closing. As we were getting off the ride, I was telling my daughter that there used to be a big exhibit beneath the "golf ball" and they don't have it any more.
A cast member heard me talking and let me in on a little treasure. He told me that Siemens was going to open something up in October of this year (which isn't news) and that the ride was going to be "improved" for the 25th anniversary, but he wasn't supposed to tell me that.
In addition, he said that if I wanted to look at the original phone prop used in the Bell Systems exhibit, I could go look behind a storage door to his left. However, he said he would have to tell me to "get out of there" once I looked.
Sure enough, my daughter and I opened the door and saw a giant handset of the Bell Systems exhibit. I wish I thought to take a picture.
After about 8 seconds or so, the cast member was good to his word and he said "hey you, you're not supposed to look in there!" I continued the little charade and said "sorry, sorry" and walked away.
It was a little slice of magic for me and my daughter...but mostly for me.

That's pretty cool, I never thought of that. I guess this is the only time it's cool that a ride broke down! Thanks

That is one of the coolest WDW stories I've heard. I would love to have an experience like that. That cast member deserves and award. He rocks \m/_(><)_\m/

And if you go back throughout the year they change the flowers to reflect the seasons in Canada. Like, yellow, gold, and red flowers for fall, and white ones for winter. The difference is often subtle, only changing a few at a time till they get the full effect. (A good reason to return to WDW at different times of the year)

This may not be a secret to many of you. However, each night before the fireworks begin at MK, as the lights go down and the voice narration begins......look up at the balcony on the right side of the castle and see Tinkerbell climb out and attach herself to a cable. She then "flies" out over Tomorrowland to start the magical beginning of the fireworks display. Many people miss it!!!

the lake infront of magic kingdom is manmade, with the dirt used to dig it placed on top of the current mk site to create those utilidors. also, in the lake east of here (riles lake?) , a real one near fort wilderness and river county there is an island, now deserted which was planned as a vacation area for the disney family.

I don't know if this one has been mentioned yet...in fact, I don't know if my eyes were playing tricks on me or not...
But you know on Soarin' when the golf ball is coming at you? I think I saw the Soarin' logo on the golf ball. It comes at you pretty fast, but I'm always looking for such details. Can anyone confirm? Keep your eyes open!

I can't confirm that it is the Soarin' logo on the ball, but I always thought that it was a Hidden Mickey on the ball.
