The Disney World parks are known to have several Hidden Gems. One of our favorite Magic Kingdom secrets is the Sword in the Stone. This unassuming monument is a great place to take a photo, but it also contains some magical Disney powers.
Unfamiliar with Sword in the Stone?
This 1963 Disney animated classic tells the story of a 12 year of Arthur who will one day become the King of England.
Part of the reason Sword in the Stone is so iconic is that it was the last animated film to be released during Walt Disney’s lifetime

BUT if you read the plaque on the front, you will find out that it is possible to remove the sword.
Whoso Pullath out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise ruler born of England.
If you are able to release the sword from the stone, you can claim to be the Hero of Fantasyland!
