1. Plane as Day
When you’re traipsing through the Hollywood Studios back lot, you might notice part of an airplane. It’s real and belonged to the one and only Walt Disney.
2. Not True Flags
In order not to run afoul of flag laws, the American flags to line Main Street are all either missing a star or a stripe. Cool, right?
3. The Early Bird Catches the Worm
Get the kids up early and head to the park before it opens. If you’re there at least 15 minutes in advance, you can catch the Train Station Welcome Show.
4. No More Smells
You’ve probably heard that they used to pipe in the scent of baked cookies into Main Street? That’s true, actually. However, they’ve stopped doing it, but the vents (and the delivery system) still exist!
5. Waste Not Want Not
