I love random facts. There is something exciting about learning things most people don’t know. Maybe I’m just a curious soul, but I want to know as much as possible. Disney is fantastic about that. The amount of time and care they put into the little touches is incredible.
For Disney geeks like myself, I thought it would be fun to look at the most random side of Disney. The little things most people don’t think about or notice.
This series will touch on topics less covered. There are a million articles that show you how to pack, but few who tell us which attractions are named after puns. Come on this random journey through the Disney parks with me. I can’t promise life-changing information, but I can promise many “Wow I never knew that” moments.
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin is a dark ride attraction in Disneyland. Inspired by the 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which won an Academy Award. The Disneyland version opened in January 1994 and is located in Mickey’s Toontown. It’s fantastic and a must do. The incredible queue area has numerous license plates hanging on the wall. They all have code-like puns of various Disney characters and sayings.

They say Disney is all about the details, and I appreciate the extra steps Disney takes. It keeps my eyes open, always scanning for things I’ve never noticed. This is just one of the reasons why Disneyland is so Gr8!
