Disney Trivia Week: Secrets Revealed


How did Club 33 get its name?

Club 33 got its name because it is located at 33 Royal Street for legal reasons. Walt Disney was insistent that the only place in DISNEYLAND Park that would be allowed to sell alcoholic beverages was Club 33. In order to enforce that prohibition, Club 33 needed its own address.

Disney Trivia Week: Walt Disney’s Joy

Why is DISNEYLAND’s Sleeping Beauty Castle the smallest of the Disney Parks castles?

The Answer is C!

When Walt Disney was building his Magic Kingdom, he often walked through the grounds on his knees to experience it the way a child would. Since the castle was one of the first buildings constructed onsite and it wasn’t originally finished on the inside, Walt Disney made sure that he had enough funds to complete the castle of his dreams.

Disney Trivia Week: Reappearing Ghosts!

Why was the Hatbox Ghost removed from The Haunted Mansion?



The Answer is: B!

While urban legends claimed that both A & C were true, the real reason why the Hatbox Ghost was removed was because the effect never looked realistic and Imagineering didn’t have time to work on improving it. 

As most guests know, the ghosts in the Haunted Mansion are more treat than trick, so nobody has ever had a fright related heart attack inside the building. While Sharon Tate did get murdered the night before the Haunted Mansion opened, the tragic event never had an effect on the operation of the attraction.
