Downtown Disney, Tommorowland, Disneyland Hotel.there's only two - the DTD station used to be called the DLH station - they are one in the same.

Here's my tidbits - from my newly gleaned VMK knowledge:

the Castle at Disneyland Paris has a dragon in the dungeon. :eek:

and Disneyland Paris is the only Disneyland park without a Jungle Cruise

You know the part of the Jungle Cruise where you first start to hear the natives chanting? If you listen carefully, you can hear one of them say, "I Love Disco!"

The smell of baked goods from the bakery is an artificial scent that is pumped out into the street.

Both the Blue Ribbon Bakery and Gibson Girls smell stronger outside than inside. ;)

The big Pirates of the Caribbean show building is NOT underground.

For some reason people always refuse to believe that when I tell them...

...that all of the "green" freshwater bodies of water at Disneyland are all actually part of one waterway. Fantasia Gardens (old Motor Boat Cruise), Storybookland, Castle Moat, Jungle Cruise, and the Rivers of America...are all interconnected bodies of water...flowing continuously from point to point.
