12 Things Nobody Tells You About Walt Disney World

11. Utilidors -- The Magic Kingdom is a favorite park of many guests as it is filled with many different lands that each feature their own unique themes, attractions, entertainment, shopping, and dining. Many of the experiences in the park are considered to be classics and must dos such as the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan’s Flight, and It’s A Small World. Since so many guests love the Magic Kingdom, it is no surprise that they spend lots of time there exploring all of the lands, but guests might be shocked to learn that they are actually on the second floor of the park! When constructing the Magic Kingdom, Imagineers wanted to make sure that there was a system of pathways for Cast Members to use out of sight from guests. This idea came about after issues in Disneyland where characters from one area of the park were found walking through another area looking very much out of place. When construction began in Florida, a massive area of land was excavated and special tunnels called Utilidors were created. The park was then built on top of the Utilidors so that guests could go about their day without ever noticing them. Utilidors combine utility and corridor and they are used for many different behind the scenes functions like garbage disposal, costuming, break rooms, and much more.
