Mark Twain Riverboat

If you ask one of the Disney cast members if you can visit the wheelhouse they will lead you to a secret ladder on the second floor and introduce you to the captain.

You will also get the opportunity to steer the riverboat, blow the whistle and ring the famous Mark Twain bell. You will also get a certificate to say you piloted the Mark twain Riverboat.

You can eat the plants in Tomorrowland:

Walt Disney wanted to create an area of his park that would act as a food farm so fruits and herbs were planted in Tomorrowland for visitors to consume.

Pull the rope on the Indiana Jones Adventure Ride:

While waiting to ride the Indiana Jones Adventure you’ll see a sign reading, “Caution.

Do Not Pull Rope! Handling Fragile Artifacts.” Do it. The more times you pull it the more different responses you will hear. There is also a bamboo pole with a similar sign that reads, “Danger! Do Not Touch Pole.” Same thing, touch it and you’ll hear loud crashes.

Choose the fastest and slowest tea cups:

The Mad Tea Party ride in Fantasyland has 18 teacups which all spin at different speeds.

If you want a fast spinner jump in the orange teacup with diamonds or purple one. If speed is not your cup of tea then chill out in the two teacups with hearts for a slower ride.

Get a death certificate at the Haunted Mansion:

As you enter the Haunted Mansion, if you ask one of the cast members for a Death certificate they will have it ready for you at the end of the ride. But they don’t give them out to just anyone, you have to be very convincing to the Disney cast member.

Get a free map at the Jungle Cruise:

Take a ride on the steam train tender:

If you ask the conductor at the Main Street Station to ride in the tender car you may get your request granted. The seat maybe a little small but sure is fun riding up front and seeing the engineer driving the train.
