And most of this is "urban legends" and entirely false. So,cute to read,but mostly fiction...and with very poor spelling too

I was going to ask if anyone thought some of this was false.

I knew some of it to be true, but wasn't sure about all of it.

I reckon there maybe a underground tunnel networks to get actors and workers to different parts of the park quickly. That seems quite feasable.

The underground tunnels are a fact and before you ask I have done the tour with my family and it was great .

I agree that one of them is just plain wrong. I debated sharing these, but found some of them to be very interesting.

I knew that there was an underground world and they do not sell gum on property.

The 'disney two fingered point" is definately true, hubby used to work on one of the disney cruise ships and thats one of the golden rules!

Theres a youtube video of oprah driving in a golf cart underneath disneyworld in their corridor maze.

Dont know if i believe the justin bieber one though!

They didn't build underground tunnels. The "tunnels" are literally the ground. The Magic Kingdom where you walk is the second story. Two of Walt's pet peeves about Disneyland were 1) he didn't like cast members (employees) in costume (uniform) walking through one land to get to where they worked. For example, wearing lederhosen and having to walk through Tomorrowland to get to Matterhorn. The utiladors solved that. 2) He also hated having to remove garbage from the different lands by pushing large carts through the park, ditto for restocking shops and restaurants. The utiladors solved that too. The WDW trash removal system was and still is, light years of most cities.

Of course Walt's biggest pet peeve was how substandard motels and restaurants popped up around the edges of Disneyland and intruded on the atmosphere he was trying to create which led to WDW in the first place.
