Disneyland Resort has so much to make every Guest’s visit a magical experience. With attractions for the entire family, fantastic entertainment, heartwarming character interactions, and delicious food and drink offerings, it is easy to see why Disneyland is The Happiest Place On Earth!

However, since Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort were reopened, Guests have pointed out that their overall experience at the Parks is not quite the same as it used to be. Guests have recently shared reports of overflowing trash cans, queues full of litter, and more at both parks. This is without mentioning the breakdowns and evacuations that appear to be more frequent each time at several Disneyland attractions.

Part of this has made Guests notice some rather odd details at some of the Park’s beloved attractions and, surprisingly, instantly grow fond of them. We previously reported on the story of Gary, a piece of bubblegum that had allegedly been stuck on the final arch of “it’s a small world” for years before being removed, leaving Guests who had just learned of Gary’s existence devastated.

Recently, another bizarre item’s story came to light when Redditor u/mmmmpupusas posted a photo of a quarter stuck to one of the wooden handrails at the exit of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. You can see the image down below.

Surprisingly, Disneyland officials quickly took notice of the matter, and in less than three days, this newly found Park celebrity was gone. An update photo was posted by Redditor u/Geek_of_mario, showing the quarter had been removed in a rather harsh way. You can see the image down below.

Fellow Redditors were quick to comment on their own experiences encountering this bizarre icon, saying they had seen him since last October, with one user even mentioning they had seen the quarter a couple of years back! While many were sad to see this oddly beloved detail gone, some Redditors complained about Guests vandalizing the Park, saying Cast Members should not have to deal with situations like this in the first place.

Redditor u/pdxsean commented someone should’ve glued two pennies above it to create a Hidden Mickey. While they surely said this as a joke, Guests need to be aware of the rules and regulations that Disneyland sets out before arriving, as breaking them could result in being kicked off propertybanned for life, or in some instances, being arrested. Vandalizing of any kind is, of course, against these regulations, and Guests who engage in this behavior can expect severe consequences if they are caught.

Guests must also remember that Disney can always see the content they create and post regarding Disney Parks and take action against them, whether it be against the Guests who post the content or the situations depicted by the content as it happened in this case.

At Disneyland, there is so much for Guests to enjoy! Now that the Main Street Electrical Parade and other nighttime spectaculars have made their way back into the Parks, Guests have so much more to look forward to on their next visit. Walking up to Sleeping Beauty Castle is always a dream, especially when you get to go inside and relive the story of Aurora and Maleficent. Riding classics like “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain, and more will have you feeling the magic and craving a churro! Toontown is currently gearing up for a massive change which will be revealed in 2023 with the reopening of the land and the debut of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Plus, now at Disneyland, Guests can enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk or green milk and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run.

Plus, there is so much to see and do at Disney California Adventure Park! Guests can enjoy Buena Vista Street as they walk the roads Walt had in Hollywood, enjoy a hand-dipped corn dog at Award Wieners, Head to Cars Land to enjoy the neon signage and Radiator Springs Racers, check out the new Marvel-themed land in Avengers Campus, where they can meet Spider-Man, Loki, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, and so many more characters. And of course, you have to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: MISSION BREAKOUT. Rock on the Silly Symphony Swings as well, and catch Jack-Jack on Incredicoaster! The list of rides and attractions never ends!
