  2. Some people don't even think of "How does she get backstage?" Well its really simple!!!! Her shell or rock that she sits on is a spining slab of cement level to the ground. So, when her hour is up she just spins around and is carried away!

    You don't see the "Little Mermaid" character walk all the way from Main Street and back. It was near Disneyland's closing time, and after a little while, the lights overlooking the shell shut off, and then the camera man, the actress, and a disguised security guard went into a hidden door on the back of that building that the Rocket Rod line starts in

  3. The fountains with the jets of water that fly over you are actually a special type. Using a water property called laminar flow, the water flows out of a smooth pipe very quickly, giving it a glass tube appearance. This effect can also be found in Epcot over in Florida outside the Imagination Pavillion.
