    Lightbulb Liberty Square Windows

    Back during the Revolution, soldiers took the metal hinges off of their shutters and made them into amunition. To hold the shutters up they used lether straps, and over time the windows began to sag. Ever wonder why the windows in Liberty Square sag? Well now you know!

    How did you find this out?

    When I went to Disney for the first time there was a Magic I felt. I could do anything or be anything. No feeling would ever top this......

    Then I took my daughter.

    This is a great little fact. I also learned that the brown coloured strip down the center of the pathways at Liberty Square represents the open sewers that used to flow down the streets during this time period!

    At this point, it's in pretty much every trivia book. No matter which one you buy, you're practically guaranteed it's simply a rehashing of every book out there.

    Really Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    I haven't found a good new secret in years. I mean years. I've moved on to Disneyland, partially fueled by the fact that i'm going in 27 days. Even still, some are the same.
