But, even if you can’t imagine it, the place where all your dreams can come true, has some mysteries yet revealed. As a matter of fact, Disney parks have tricks to trick the senses of visitors.
From the mirage of making really long lines seem shorter, have you ever noticed that Disney parks don’t have mirrors in their bathrooms? Well, this is another trick for visitors… Do you want to know why?
Sorry to tell you, but Disney parks are full of deceptions. If you don’t believe me, take for instance the very long lines to enter the attractions, but, surprisingly, they seem short. Do you know how they do it?
The queues do not form a straight line, instead, they are separated by opaque walls and it makes it difficult for the visitor to calculate the number of people who are really ahead. And there’s the first deception. However, it’s not the only one.
In Disney parks, they decorate the corridors with striking motifs and install screens on which you can see stories related to Disney characters. And also, the timer is at the beginning of the queue.
The Mirror Trick
To all these deceptions add the mirror trick. For several years, nobody has really known why there are no mirrors in the Disney parks’ bathrooms. But now it has been revealed. And, as it turns out, it is a deliberate decision.
It has been demonstrated that in the bathrooms, a lot of people gather so they needed to ensure that people spend little time there. The mirrors over the sinks tempt visitors to look at each other, check their hair, clothes, and makeup when they finish washing their hands, all of which adds up to time. Without them, people wash their hands, dry them, and leave.
So in conclusion, without mirrors, people stay less in the bathrooms. This way, people have more time to continue consuming attractions, food, and merchandising in the Park.
