Good morning, All in WDW fans!
According to the backstory supplied by our friends at Disney, “the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel, the onetime haunt of Tinseltown’s rich and famous”, experienced a mysterious incident that forced it to close in 1939! 20 out of 47 (42.55%) of you got that one right. Great work!
Borrowing from Wikipedia, “The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, commonly known as Tower of Terror, is an accelerated drop-tower thrill ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, Disney California Adventure, Tokyo DisneySea, and Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris.
All but the Tokyo version are based upon the television show ‘The Twilight Zone’ and take place in the fictional Hollywood Tower Hotel. The Tokyo version, which features an original storyline not derived from The Twilight Zone, takes place in the fictional Hotel Hightower.”
17 of you (41.46%) knew the correct response to the second question. Geez, you guys are too smart for me! Officially opened on July 29, 1999, the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is a thrilling dash in a super-stretch limo-type coaster to attend an Aerosmith concert. Packed with speakers, each coaster broadcasts different Aerosmith songs. Tunes include:
- “Walk This Way”
- “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)”
- “Sweet Emotion”
- “Back in the Saddle”
Plus, the lyrics to “Love in an Elevator” were rewritten to become “Love in a Roller Coaster”!
Another version of the coaster can be found at Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris.
Enough of that! It’s Epcot trivia you stopped by to see. Let’s pay some attention to the two attractions that “ruled the roost”, back in January, over at the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow! Maybe these questions will get ya’!
Question #1: According to Disney, the story being told by Illuminations unfolds in three parts. Which one of these is not a name of one of those parts?
Illuminations is a fantastic attraction. Mrs. All in WDW and I often enjoy it with a glass of wine while sitting at an umbrella table in the Italy pavilion. Outstanding!
Question #2: The structure of Spaceship Earth was designed with the help of science fiction writer __________. He also helped write the original storyline for the attraction.
