Hidden Treasures

I've been to Walt Disney World in my life too many times to count.  Actually, I can't give an accurate count, because neither my parents nor I have any clue how many times I went as a child (multiple, but no exact numbers).

Anyways, with over 20 visits under my belt, it still amazes me when I "discover" new things.  This trip was a trip of many discoveries.  I had a few missions - things I had heard about and wanted to experience for myself.  With 3 days in the parks, we had time to explore and discover "new to us" treasures.

One of the most exciting to me was the legendary telephone, located in one of the stores on Main Street.  Don't know what I'm talking about?  Well, thanks to my collection of Disney Trivia books that I recieved for Chanuka (books 1 and 2 by Lou Mongello and more!), I read about a lot of "secrets" left to us by the Imagineers.  One of the most interesting is this telephone!  

If you're heading down Main Street U.S.A. towards Cinderella Castle, stop in the stores on the right and look for it or simply ask (that's what I did!) for the telephone.  They'll know what you're talking about. Pick up the phone, and you can hear a conversation between a mother and her daughter.  The mother is advising her daughter on what kind of man to marry - "He should make at least $7 a week" and other words of wisdom from the day.  And, if you listen closely, you can hear the next door neighbor hang up her phone last.  Silly eavesdropper!
Adam needed to know what to look for in a husband!
While we were listening, another Disney visitor saw us on the phone - she had no idea these phones may actually work!  I saw another similar phone in the Harmony Barbershop, but was told that it no longer worked.  I wonder what that conversation was like!

I've got a few more of these great Hidden Treasures.  Keep checking out the blog for more fun finds!

Thanks for stopping by,
