I don't know if this has already been mentioned (I haven't read all of the posts) but I saw on tv that on Kilimanjaro Safaris, the rocks on which the lions lie have air conditioning. This is so the lions can be seen from the ride vehicles. I also learned that the "fallen logs" in the middle of the savannah are actually made of concrete. They are special food containers that tempt the animals to go near the side of the road, so guests can have a better look at the animals!
Just thought I'd mention that - I thought it was pretty cool

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but in Splash Mountain when you go through the part with all the laughing turtles right before your about to go up the big drop a gopher drops down from the ceiling and says, "F-S-U". Supposedly the imagineer responsible for it was a Florida State grad. I thought it was cool, now I do my best gopher voice and say it a long with him.
Also a good tip if you are staying at the Yacht or Beach club, it is probably faster to walk to EPCOT than wait for the slowest boat in the world to pick you up and take you.
And anyone at the Pop Century, take a walk to the end of the pier in the back at night time, the view of the resort is actually pretty amazing.
Try getting a boat by yourself on the jungle cruise during the fireworks or the parade. Me and my brother did this, he didn't want to because he thought it would be too weird. The skipper was from Hong Kong and he said he was going to be working in the new Hong Kong Disneyland. What was funny is that even though me and my brother were the only ones on the boat and we were sitting right next to him, he still used the mic to tell his jokes. It ended up being a cool experience though.

I have been on the Jungle Cruise during the fireworks and it really is pretty neat, but my absolute favorite is being on the last Dumbo ride of the night. The fireworks were expolding all around us. What an unbelievable view!!!!!

My favorite place to see the fireworks is splash mountain.

I actually went back and double-checked this on my last trip. I found the "bridge", the water running under it, and I saw where the water distributes into the Rivers of America. But I didn't see a water wheel. Looking up in the direction the water was coming from, it appeared to just come down from a stream which began somewhere up around the buildings, but the exact source was obscured by bushes and such. But there was definitely no water wheel. I wonder if there maybe used to be one?

I´m new here and want to say that I found a lot of useful info here ...
This is a great site and from now on I will check recently if there are any news
Normally I post at trip advisor but from now on you have to stand me
have a great day!
BTWid anyone mentioned about the geographic middle of Walt Disney World??
You can see it when you leave Innoventions West in Epcot heading to The Land...
There are concentric circles embedded in the concrete
In the beginning EPCOT was planned to be the middle of the world but unfortunatly they found a nesting of the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker and so they had to move everything about 300 feet ... therefore the middle is not the fountain but t h e s e circles...
OK, C U

Yes it is true, although we have recently taken it down due to the Lights, Motors, and Action stunt show. There used to be a button on the umbrella that produced "rain" while the lamplight above you would light up, and it would look as if you were "singing in the rain"!

I dont know many secrets that you guys probably dont already know but.... If your car battery dies(LIKE ME) the staff at All Star Movies are more than happy to send staff down with as many booster packs as you need to jump you off. They ended up sending down two staff members with booster packs. Nice guys !
