15 Facts You Didn't Know About Disney



(image sourced from Google)

As a massive Disney fan, I always love to read up about my favourite films and characters as well as the history of Disney. So for those who are like me,  I have created this post on 15 Facts you may or may not know about Disney. 


1. Early Disney films have no mothers in, films such as The Jungle Book, Bambi and Pinocchio. It's      been suggested that this was because of the death of Walter's mother in 1938. She died from carbon    monoxide poisoning from a faulty heating system in the house, the house that Walter brought for        his  parents. To this day there are still many Disney films where the is only one parent or tragic            strikes and leaves the lead character (s) orphaned.  E.g Frozen, Tarzan and Big Hero 6 to name a          few.  

2. Wall-E is named after Mr Disney himself, Walter Elias Disney 

3. For several years Disney held the patent for Technicolor making him the only animator allowed to       produce films in colour. 

4. Walter built an apartment for his family above the 'Fire Department' on main street in Disneyland,
    California. A lamp was used in the window to signal to staff he was in residence. This is now               always lit in his honour. 

5.  Disney has a secret cocktail club called club 33. It's hidden above the Blue Bayou in New                    Orleans Square, with a strict members list of 487 members and a waiting list of 14 years! 

6. Steve Martin ( Father of the Bride Actor )  used to work in the magic shop at Disneyland.                             
7. The actors that play Minnie and Mickey mouse married in real life, now thats a fairytale!   

8. Boo's real name is Mary, you can find it on a drawing in her room. 

9. Mickey Mouse has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

10. The ideas for Monsters Inc, Wall-E and Finding Nemo were brainstormed in 1994! So some of            these 'New' Disney films may not be so new. 

11. The Jungle Book was the last film overseen by Walt Disney. 

12. Walt Disney actually played Peter Pan in his school play!

13. Pumba was the first Disney character to pass wind. 

14.  Aladdin's face was modelled after Tom Cruise. 

15. Did you know that Ariel and Hercules are cousins! Triton's father Poseidon is brothers with                 Zeus, Hercules's Father.
