Sign Your Name in the Hidden Mailbox!
This one is super new to me and I'm very excited about it. Anyone here ever go geocaching? Basically, it's a treasure hunt that can take place anywhere. You leave something behind for people to find. Sometimes you can take/leave a small prize, or sometimes you just sign your name in a log book to show you've found it. Well, some dedicated fans have found a small, out of the way mailbox on Main Street and left something for other guests to find and sign! Now, sometimes Cast Members clear it out, so if you find this little box and there's nothing inside, you can start your own log! I've even heard of someone starting a new one at Mr. Bluebird's house near the exit of Splash Mountain. Who's going to go find it???

A Little Shakespeare in the Haunted Mansion
This one sure was news to me when I first heard it. Did you know that the iconic lyrics "Grim Grinning Ghosts" in the Haunted Mansion were lifted from the William Shakespeare poem Venus and Adonus? Take a look for yourself:
- Look, how the world's poor people are amaz'd
- At apparitions, signs, and prodigies,
- Whereon with fearful eyes they long have gaz'd,
- Infusing them with dreadful prophecies;
- So she at these sad sighs draws up her breath,
- And, sighing it again, exclaims on Death.
- 'Hard-favour'd tyrant, ugly, meagre, lean,
- Hateful divorce of love,'—thus chides she Death,—
- 'Grim-grinning ghost, earth's worm, what dost thou mean
- To stifle beauty and to steal his breath,
- Who when he liv'd, his breath and beauty set
- Gloss on the rose, smell to the violet?

Space Mountain is Much Bigger Than it Seems
Have you ever though about how huge the Space inside of Space Mountain is, compared to the somewhat short building you see on the outside? That's because it actually goes two stories underground to fit both the large ride space and queue areas.
