Wednesday’s edition of random facts is ready to go!
-- Did you know that the first escalator was an amusement park ride in Coney Island, New York in 1896?! Wow, what a thrill. LOL!
-- Disney hasn't added a new country to Epcot's World Showcase since 1988, when they added Norway. But they have room for six more. Originally, Israel, equatorial Africa, and Spain were supposed to be included . . . but they were cut.
-- And finally, did you know that "Shrek" was referred to as the 'Gulag' of DreamWorks? Animators were "Shreked" as punishment for unsatisfactory work; some of them believing the movie would never see the light of day.
