9 Things You Probably Don't Know About Disney

by: Jenna

For more great info, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook!

Traveling with small children? You can still go on thrill rides. Disney offers a Rider Swap option, perfect for those of us traveling with littles. Just send one adult to the line and tell the Cast Member that you need a Rider Swap ticket. Adult #1 will go through the standard line and Adult #2 will be able to enter via the fast pass line. Bonus? If you have a child that is big enough to ride, you can take them with you both times.

Want to go fast? Pick the plain lavender teacup. Rumor has it that it spins the fastest!

Try the grey stuff, it's delicious! Are you a fan of Beauty and the Beast? If so, you know the song, and you can actually try the grey stuff at Be Our Guest restaurant!

You're never more than 30 steps from a trash can...and some of them talk back. Allegedly, Walt observed how long people would hold on to trash before dropping it on the ground. His answer? Thirty steps. That's why you are never more than 30 steps away from a trash can. Also? Keep your eyes peeled for Push, the talking trash can. We ran into him last time and the boys had a blast talking to him.  

Updated to add: PUSH has officially been retired. =(
I owe you a bonus fact how about two of them! 

Bonus Fact One: Disney World is the size of San Francisco! 
Bonus Fact Two: You won't be able to get a plastic lid or straw for your drink at Animal Kingdom. They can be life threatening to some of the animals, should they get their paws on them!

Bored in line? Look for Mickey. There are literally thousands of hidden Mickey heads all over the park. Next time you're standing in line, look around. What you see might surprise you!

Staying onsite and need a wake up call? It might just be a character that calls you!

BYOG. Disney is a bring your own gum park. If you don't bring it, you won't have any because Disney parks do not sell it as part of their effort to keep the parks as clean and tidy as possible.

There are tunnels under the park at Magic Kingdom. Hence, you'll never seen a character out of the land that they should reside in (or a cast member for that matter!).

Keep everything in the palm of your hand. Disney has a free app that is basically the same as your My Disney Experience online. You can view and make dining and fast pass reservations and even see how long the wait times for rides are.
