    Tunnels under Disney World revealed!

    http://www.ekday.com/blog/files/8036d653b430ffa276d8767dde659c06-28.html

    The reason I'm writing this is because, for some strange reason, my last two clients asked me what I did before becoming a real estate broker. I went through my resume, discussing my experience as a financial planner, licensed stock broker, marketing specialist, teacher, and yep, a little bit of time at Disney during high school and college. Why that's the ONLY job they hear, I'll never know, but it is. Then the conversation turns to Disney stuff. Are there really tunnels under Disney? Are there really hidden Mickeys? Did you see Walt's frozen head? I guess these questions really only come from buyers from outside of Florida, but having 2 clients in the past week get into this discussion prompted me to write about "The Tunnels."
    There's a map in there, too.
    Pretty cool read.

    Interesting.
    I guess it makes sense in a Walt Disney sort of way.

    The most fascinating fact for me was that the tunnels are actually at ground level and that the park is built above that.
    That's some slick engineering and some pretty prescient foresight on Walt's part.

    It wasn't foresight.
    It was more like, "I want tunnels."
    Then they found out the water table was only a few feet below the ground and they said, "shit".
    Then they adapted the plans.
    My first thought was how the hell can they put tunnels there, I'm glad they addressed that question in the article.

    That's pretty interesting, but these tunnels are still cooler.

    No, he was a pervert.
    He needed a place to touch Mickey without getting caught.

    Showing a reconstructed trapdoor, Jones demonstrates how quickly a drinking buddy could disappear from his place at the bar, and land below. Jones says "If you were standing in the right place at the wrong time, you could be on a ship bound for China and not make it back for three to six years."
    That sucks.


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.
