I also just learned alot of fun little secrets about the Peter Pan ride in Fantasy Land. In the room with Big Ben , look closely and you can see a hidden Mickey in one of the windows of the clock, In the same room the layout of london, is taken from an authentic map of London!
I found some fun information about "it's a small world" on the Get Away Today Blog.In a 16 hour day" it's a small world!" song will play about 1,200 times! There are over 240 animated figures in "it's a small world" in Disneyland. When "it's a small world" first came to Disneyland Walt Disney invited children from around the world to bring containers of water from the nearest sea in thier native lands. All of the children poured their water into the ride's river and sybolically united the world.
At a young age Walt Disney moved to Marceline, Missouri. Walt loved Marceline and designed Main Street U.S.A. with several references to his home town. The small shops, movie theater, and Coke Corner are all features that can be found in Marceline, and Disneyland!
