Disneyland - Fun Facts

  • Disneyland's address is 1313 Harbor Boulevard because M is the 13th letter of the alphabet, making the address MM for Mickey Mouse.
  • Gum isn't sold at Disneyland because Walt Disney didn't want his guests to have to pick gum off their shoes every 10 minutes, as is common at other amusement parks.
