Disney has lot of stuff that is marketed to be right out in front. Sometimes, though, there are little-known hidden Disney gems.
El Capitan Theater and Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Store – Disney owns the El Capitan Theater located in downtown Hollywood in California. This small-ish theater is always decorated to the nines, premieres and shows only Disney films, often has a secondary side event (kids play area, art gallery, movie props, etc.) that coordinate with what is showing, and special events. Disney also owns the ice cream soda fountain next door. Not only is the food and ice cream great, but the small store there sells a few things I haven’t seen anywhere else.
Character Calls – You can get a Disney character to call your child up on their birthday for free! How cool is that?! You can set the phone number, select a character from the available list, and select the time.
Harmony Barber Shop – You can get a haircut right off of Mainstreet USA at DisneyWorld in Florida! The barbers there pay special care and attention to children going in for their very first haircuts!
Baked Potato Stand – There is a baked potato and corn stand at Disney World in the Magic Kingdom. I am not sure why no one believes me, but it is one of the best places to stop for a hot and filling snack/meal.
Disney Mickey Mouse Flip Book – This new tool lets you play with animation, learn how it works, and create your own animated clip! Check it out, I had fun playing with it for hours!
