Disney Secrets Exposed!!

She was an intern, might not be coming back after these...

Disney World intern shares its secrets: Why are their American flags short one star and stripe?

 

“The most magical place on earth” has become a little less mysterious, thanks to a Walt Disney World intern’s now-viral TikTok video series illuminating little-known facts about the Florida theme park.

Earlier this week, intern Fayth Hendley discussed all things Disney on the video-sharing platform in a series of six quick clips. The 19-year-old collegian from Illinois claimed she previously worked there through the Disney College Program during a five-month internship at Harambe Market in Animal Kingdom. She will be returning to the theme park for a second apprenticeship in January 2020, The Sun reports.

Flashing her official name badge, Hendley spoke about everything from why balloons are banned in certain places to weird facts about the Tower of Terror, Expedition Everest, Animal Kingdom and more with her 49,5000 TikTok followers in the wide-ranging videos.

Visitors won’t find gum for sale anywhere in Disney World, Hendley claimed, because of disposal issues.

"When people are done chewing their gum, they decided that there just going to stick it somewhere, instead of disposing of it properly," she said.

Nearly all of the American flags through the park are also missing a star and stripe because they “couldn't be flown permanently” otherwise, she shared.

As for the Tower of Terror and Expedition Everest rides, both attractions are exactly 199 feet because the Sunshine State requires blinking lights to be displayed for low-flying planes at heights of 200 feet.

Over at Animal Kingdom, the restrooms uniquely feature entrance and exit doors in the event of an emergency in which visitors would need to hide from an escaped animal.

"This is just [for], in the unfortunate situation, if an animal were to get out, that the guests can hide in there,” Hendley said.

In addition, balloons and plastic straws are also forbidden in Animal Kingdom, as they could threaten the wildlife inside.

 

Instead, visitors are invited to leave their balloons purchased from other parts of the theme park in a so-called “balloon daycare” at Animal Kingdom’s entrance, and also swap out their plastic straws for paper one before exploring the grounds.

Hendley’s other quirky revelations included claims that the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom is fully open for business and that Epcot's Living with the Land attraction yields “over 30 tons of fruits and vegetables each year.”

"Any of this that is not donated is still put to good use in the food and beverage locations across Disney World,” the intern said.

When disposing of uneaten food, all food and beverage locations have a specialized food waste system that converts the leftovers into biofuel, which helps fuel the shuttles that run through the park and resort.

As for personal recommendations, Hendley advised that the best times to visit Disney World are February and May, in hopes of avoiding seasonal crowds and maximizing the fun.

A spokesperson for Disney was not immediately available to offer further comment on the viral TikTok videos.

Not sure there are any actual revelations here, although I don't get the flag thing?

And gosh, you mean Disney didn't immediately reply to an article in The Sun about some TikTok videos??  Shocking.  LOL

I think since it's not an "official" flag and more of a decoration, it doesn't have to follow the rules regarding how and American Flag has to be displayed, taken down at night if no light, etc.

If the site that published the article thinks that it's news that a DCP kid posted a video of the "secrets" she learned during her program, they must have never visited YouTube.

Maybe because she posted it on Tik-Tok that's what makes it news.

I'm going with slow news day or someone saw an opportunity for a super click-baity headline.
