14 Hidden Things to Look for at Disneyland


Before boarding the Mark Twain riverboat, find one of the Disney cast members and ask them if you can visit the wheelhouse. They’ll lead you to the second floor, where you’ll see a door marked “Private.” Knock on the door and the captain will lead you to a secret ladder to the wheelhouse, where you can steer and pilot the riverboat. You’ll also get a chance to ring the Mark Twain’s bell and sound its whistle like a real riverboat captain! Once you finish, just ask for a certificate and sign the guestbook, which features all the people who also steered the riverboat in the past. | Mental Floss

I was up in that wheelhouse (or one like it) back in 1957. They called for folks from out of state and there I was.

Nice reference to the Scottish Rite.

Lived in LA in the early '70s. Took my kids (6) to D'land for a day. The only thing I wanted to locate was the Exit sign. (Surprisingly, kids didn't think much of it either compared to Sea World or Magic Mountain.)
