DLR Trivia wanted

Hi Everybody,
I'm trying to compile some trivia for both Disneyland and DCA as well as the resorts and dining options if there is any. I thought it would be a good way to forget about crowds/lines while we are there. So if you have any, please comment here. I've already got some for Disneyland, but not for all lands. I don't have anything for DCA. If you'd like I can share what I have already. I'm not looking for rumors, I'm looking for actual facts. Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.

The only guidebooks I have are the 2006 Disneyland Passporter, and the Unofficial Guide to Disneyland (2013). I didn't think there was much trivia in those, although, I haven't actually read them cover to cover. I think the type of trivia I'm looking for is more like history type trivia. For instance, I have information on how much different types of rooms cost when the Disneyland Hotel first opened, and the light in the apartment above the firehouse used to be on if Walt was in the park, and now it's on all the time. etc. I know that last one is known to alot of people (but not my family. LOL!) But I'm hoping to get as much trivia like that, as I can so where ever we are in the park, if it seems like a good time, I can read a little bit of trivia to the family. But that's a good idea, I'll check the guidebooks again. Thanks Lilianna

Here's a trivia question for you. Which hotel is actually INSIDE the DCA?

When you're waiting to board the train at one of the train stations (believe it's New Orleans Square) you'll hear the tapping of a telegram being sent. The tapping is morse code & it's spelling out Walt Disney's speech from the opening day of the Disneyland park.
