Did you know Disney Land has underground tunnels?
In case you’re a major Disney World fan, you probably know that there are a series of tunnels underneath the Magic Kingdom, known as the Utilidors. Possibly you’ve even seen a portion of the Utilidors when you’ve taken the keys to the Kingdom visit.
In Disney theme parks, the utilidor system is an arrangement of a portion of the world’s biggest utility systems, basically for Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Florida. The utilidors, short for utility corridors, are a piece of Disney’s “behind the stage” (in the background) region. They permit Disney workers (“cast members”) to perform park support activities, for example, junk evacuation, and for costumed characters to rapidly arrive at their destination on the surface, out of the sight of visitors, to abstain from destroying the illusion that is being made.
These passages were first built for Magic Kingdom. More modest utilidor frameworks are built under the central part of Epcot’s Future World, essentially underneath Spaceship Earth and Innoventions, and formerly at Pleasure Island. Disneyland, in California, additionally has a little utilidor framework running all through Tomorrowland.
As indicated by modern legend, Walt Disney was disturbed by seeing a cowboy strolling through California Disneyland’s Tomorrowland on the way to his post in Frontierland. He felt that such a sight was jolting, and reduced the visitor experience. Since the California Disneyland was little, such a passage framework couldn’t be possibly executed. At the point when the new Florida Disney park was being arranged, engineers planned utilidors to keep park operations far away from guests.

Past getting around, the regions underground are the place where a dominant part of Magic Kingdom cast individuals to go to take a break and unwind for a bit. There are locker rooms, break rooms, and a cafeteria, grab-and-go food spots situated in the passages. The cafeteria is known as the “Mouseketeria.” This is the place where most of the Magic Kingdom cast individuals get a light meal to eat. There are three distinctive feasting choices to look over, one of which is the mainstream sandwich chain, Subway.
Costuming, changing areas, and makeup rooms are likewise situated in the passages.
