Both my parents grew up in Southern California so plenty of my childhood was spent as Disneyland. Even while I was stationed down in San Diego in the Navy, I loved to go up to the parks on my days off to hop on the rides. Something about it just brings out the kid in all of us. It is no wonder why they call it the happiest place on earth.
Just like any other attraction though, there is a LOT that goes on behind the scenes. Fortunately for us, former employees of the park love to dish out some secrets and stories that the company itself would never release.
