Not sure if any of you have ever heard the word “Dis-nerd”, it’s a combination of Disney & nerd – it’s what I call someone who remembers facts or figures, history, interesting stories, trivia, etc about Disney.
I jokingly call myself that from time to time. Sometimes when you are at Disney with friends or family you can’t even help but spurt out all kinds of info – at least that’s a problem that I have, so after a while, they will usually say “how do you know all this stuff”, and I just usually will say “I’m a Dis-nerd, a Disney nerd, I can’t help it”.
But who better to show folks the ins and outs of Walt Disney World? I can’t think of anyone better than someone who really loves all things Disney. And for anyone who loves Disney that much, it’s hard to hold in your excitement and when is there a better time to slather on that Disney knowledge on your less informed friends and family than when you are actually at Walt Disney World.
If you are reading my blog, chances are *you* might be the Disney nerd in your group of friends or in your family. You know things like how many lanterns are hanging from the Liberty Tree. Or that the Liberty Bell in Liberty Square was actually cast from the same exact mold as the real Liberty Bell! Or that the castle isn’t really made of bricks. That inside the Winnie the Pooh ride, there is a picture of Mr. Toad handing over the deed to Owl. And there is a Mr. Toad in the pet cemetery outside of the Haunted Mansion! You know about Hidden Mickeys. You know that Walt Disney didn’t live long enough to see his Florida Project completed, he died six years prior to the opening of the Magic Kingdom.
One of the best experiences I’ve had is going on some of the private tours that Walt Disney World offers. I highly recommend the Keys to the Kingdom tour at Magic Kingdom. These are great, a lot of fun, and you probably will learn some knew stuff plus you can ask the tour guide questions too. And if you aren’t a Disney nerd yet, you might just catch the Disney bug on one of these tours.
