41 Little Known Facts About Disneyland

Disneyland, not to be confused with Walt Disney World in Florida, is a favorite place of many people. Die-hard Disney fans think they know everything there is to know about “the happiest place on earth”, but we’re here to enlighten you even more. Maybe you know some of these secrets or maybe some of them are exciting news.

Well-known as one of the grandest theme parks ever built, Disneyland has been an undeniable draw for tourists for decades. Built in July of 1955, this year marks the park’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration! Over the years, the park has undergone many renovations and expansions – New Orlean’s Square, Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Mickey’s Toontown just to name a few – since the time Walt Disney envisioned the park.

There are still plenty of secrets that this park holds, even after 60 years, but we’ll share a few of the ones we know with you here.

1. Disneyland was supposed to be in Burbank, CA.
Originally, Walt Disney envisioned Disneyland in Burbank, CA - right across the street from Walt Disney Studios.

Disney’s original dream was to have the park across the street from Walt Disney Studios in Burbank California. However after talking with park planners, they realized that the location would be too small for Disney’s grand plans.

2. The Edible Plants of Tomorrowland

Amidst the shiny finishes, metallic shine, and kinetic sculptures, Tomorrowland doubles as a potential farm. Disney envisioned an ecologically astute future where humanity made the most of its resources. That means any plant in the Tomorrowland area of the park is edible! Maybe not the most ideal snack, but in a pinch you could munch on a leaf.

3. The Haunted Mansion’s Pet Cemetery
There is a fake pet cemetery hidden behind the Haunted Mansion.
One of the scariest buildings in Disneyland is the Haunted Mansion.

One of the spookiest buildings in the park wouldn’t be complete without a pet cemetery – or two! Said to have been added in the 1980s, the original cemetery was only visible to park goers who used the wheelchair ramp along the side of the building.

When they built the new wheelchair ramp, they decided to add another pet cemetery to the front of the building, so people waiting in line for the ride could enjoy the sight. The first cemetery still remains but is mostly only viewed by Disney cast members now.
