There's a Secret Suite in Cinderella's Castle
It was originally intended to be an apartment for Walt Disney and his family, but he passed away before it was finished being built. It rocks 24 karat gold floor tiles, stained glass windows, and a magic mirror that doubles as a television. Disney now occasionally allows families who win a competition to stay in the suite for the night.

Disneyland Has a Cat Infestation
Though knowledge of their existence has been carefully guarded from reaching the ears of Mickey for decades, Disneyland actually has a number of feral cats who roam the park at night in order to help control the... mouse population. In exchange, the kitties are all spayed/neutered, given regular shots, fed, and even have their own website at disneylandcats.com.

The Skull on the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride Is Real
When the ride first opened at Disneyland in 1967, its designers found that the fake skeletons available were too flimsy. Despite the creepiness factor, they discovered that actual human skeletons worked much more to their liking and originally used several that the UCLA Medical School had lying around. Though have since been replaced by fakes, the skull and cross bones seen above are among the few genuine human remains left inside the ride.

Animal Kingdom Was Originally Going to Be for Mythical Beasts
This is why there is so much dragon decor in Animal Kingdom. When it was first built, there was originally going to be an area called the "Beastly Kingdom" which would be dedicated to magical and mythical creatures. The idea was eventually scrapped but a dragon can still be seen among his non-mythical fellows in the logo on many Animal Kingdom signs.

They Keep You Safe with an Envelope of Protectionv
All Disneyland and Disney World attractions created since 1965 have been designed so that the human body cannot reach out and touch anything. To make sure of this, they use a special vehicle as a test (see video). This is called the "Envelope of Protection" and ensures that even if you simply MUST throw your hands up with excitement on Thunder Mountain Railroad, you won't find your hand, moving up to 45 miles per hour, coming into contact with any part of the ride.
This played a role in the banning of Selfie Sticks in the parks, as they would extend beyond this safe and cozy envelope.
