Everything about Disney is magic and it is so interesting to know more about the man and his awesome creations. Back in the 60's, while flying over miles of swamp land in Central Florida region, Disney had conceived the layout of his world famous dream project. What happened next is another much bigger and better Disney illusion - the creation of an amazing Adventureland, all run, staffed and controlled from an immense, underground complex, consisting of about 2.5 km long tunnels. And inside these mysterious tunnels there is a whole city of magic which is hidden from the regular visitors. One can have a closer look at the real secrets of the Disney Magic inside these huge tunnels underneath Magic Kingdom.
As a visitor to the park, it doesn't occur to us at first sight, but when observe keenly there is a whole new discovery. The underground tunnels are physically not underground. They are located above the ground floor level, and are considered to be at the First Floor; while the entire Magic Kingdom is built above the tunnel complex and occupies the Second and Third Floor positions.
Technically, the tunnels are referred as 'Utilidors' (i.e. Utility Doors), and entrances to these utilidors can be found all across the park. They are mainly used by caste members and utility crews, including deliveries and food preparation to keep the magic alive and undisturbed above. When guests are enjoying the rides and attractions there are a whole lot of activities going around below their feet inside the tunnel complex.
Today with every reference to World's Premier Theme Parks, the immediate picture which comes to our mind is the ever-glittering Cinderella Castle straight across the Main Street, crowning the Magic Kingdom. But for Disney fanatics and returning visitors there is more to have then the awe-inspiring attractions and activities the park offers. Disney provides a more unique and in-depth behind-the-scene tour for all those who want to have a real experience with the Disney Magic.
