    The ones Ive shared already:

    1. Cinderella's horse is the one with the golden bow on its tail at the carrousel
    2. There is only one "real" flag on the Mainstreet shops that gets taken down nightly
    3. The entrance floor to the Magic Kingdom is painted red, representing a red carpet :)
    4. There is a sowrd in the stone ceremony and whoever takes the sword out becomes king (thats all I remember, any extra info is much appreciated)

    Did a little research...this looks cool

    The names of 2 of the approach procedures that all aircraft follow into their arrival at Orlando International Airport are named GOOFY TWO and MINEE TWO. Any pilot that flies into there can confirm this

    Actually, I think you'll find that they're the GOOFY FIVE and MINEE FIVE arrivals.

    GOOFY FIVE Arrival

    MINEE FIVE Arrival

    There's also the PIGLT TWO Arrival but that one's RNAV.

    PIGLT TWO Arrival

    My tip: if you ask for a cup of ice water, at any counter service, you will receive a FREE cup of ice water.

    Bottled water costs a fortune, and I'm okay with FL water, so it's an excellent thing to me. :)

    The water in the counter service places comes out of the Coke fountain machine so the water should be filtered

    Not sure what my favorite was...think it was ...er Coke....

    Some of the stuff really was kind of freaky and to my American palate...kind of nasty.

    But to each his own...Tink that was a good idea, glad you remember it. Kind of cool to think the formula has to be tweaked to fit culuture's tastes.
