Whether young or old, we all have an incessant love of Disney that will never diminish.

From the touching moment that Bambi sets his eyes on the beautiful doe, to the second Anna breaks Queen Elsa’s icy spell, Disney has captivated us for almost a century. 

But even for the biggest Disney fanatics, there are some surprises in those much-loved cartoons that you probably missed.

From secret codes to guest appearances, Disney pulled a few fast ones on us that we still can’t believe we never noticed before!

Below are some of our favorite Disney secrets that still have us scratching our heads!

1. True love isn’t just reserved for fairytales

You’ve heard their voices time and time again, but did you know that faces behind Mickey and Minnie Mouse – Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor – are actually married in real life?!


2. And neither are wild animals

 Walt Disney consistently had animals roaming the production sets so animators had real life references.


3. There’s a thought out reason behind the name, “Wall-E”

Walter Elias Disney.


4. Even The Beatles were Disney fans

The popular boyband were originally supposed to be the voices behind the vultures in “The Jungle Book” movie, however, due to scheduling conflicts they couldn’t make it.


5. Characters often make sneaky appearances in other movies

Like here, in “Ratatouille” – Remy’s shadow looks an awful lot like Dug from “Up.”


Or here, in “Tarzan” – does that china set look familiar? You might recognize it from “Beauty and the Beast!”


6. They’ve got one heck of a sense of humor

If you actually watch through the credits of “Frozen,” they include a statement asserting that Kristoff’s belief that all men eat their own boogers is solely his own and does not necessarily reflect the view or opinions of Disney!


7. They put time…lots and lots of time…into creating each and every one of their films

Speaking of “Frozen,” take a look at this one clip below. This single moment took 132 hours to create. Now that’s devotion!


8. There was actually a lot of thought put into the creation of the characters

Take the Beast, for example. Below you can see the exact reasoning behind each feature of the character – makes sense!


9. There’s reasoning behind even the smallest of details

The next time you’re watching one of your favorite Disney films, keep an eye out for the secret code “A113.” This was the room number at the California Institute of Arts where many of Disney’s animators learned their trade.

 10. Seriously, it’s all in the details

If you happened to catch the sorcerer’s name in “Fantasia,” it’s Yen Sid. Now flip that around and what to you get? Disney.


11. They LOVE to recycle

Disney often recycled animations to save time and money.


Who knew?!


12. And not everything works on the first shot

Initially, creators had some very different ideas for the names of the little ones in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.” Names on the table included Jumpy, Deafy, Dizzy, Wheezy, Hickey, Baldy, Gabby, Nifty, Sniffy, Swift, Lazy, Puffy, Stuffy, Tubby, Shorty, and Burpy.


13. They do their research

Bernard from “The Rescuers Down Under” has a condition called triskaidekaphobia. This is, in fact, is a real thing – the fear of the number 13!
