Last week I shared a bit about the white beaches along Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon. But, did you know the Seven Seas Lagoon is a man made lake?
When they were building the Magic Kingdom, they created utilidors (tunnels) under the park to help cast members get from one place in the park to another in a short amount of time. So the park is actually on the second level and the utilidors are on the first level. Once the utilidors were complete, they used the soil from creating Seven Seas Lagoon to cover the utilidors and raise the land for the park to be built. Seven Seas Lagoon is 14 feet at it's deepest point.
So, when you walk through the Magic Kingdom, you're actually walking on "land" that was once in front of the Polynesian Resort!
