French Trivia Answered! Who Misses the Earffel Tower? [Poll]

Marvelous Monday, my friends!  Shake off those beginning-of-the-week blues and get after the week!

So … did you tackle yesterday’s trivia question?  No?  Here’s your chance to take a step back and test your Epcot IQ … click this link!

How tall is Disney’s version of France’s Eiffel Tower, you ask?  Why, it reaches 103 feet into the Florida sky!

The challenge turned out to be a little bit tougher than I expected.  Only 24% of you got it right!  Congrats to those of you who scored with the correct choice.

Of course, the Eiffel Tower inspired another piece of Walt Disney World, as well.  Even if it was by its name only.

Opened on May 1, 1989, the Earffel Tower was once a Hollywood Studios park icon.

Based on water towers commonly found in 20th century movie studios, Disney closed this structure on April 29, 2016.  It leads me to ask …

 

Epcot Trivia! Welcome to France!

Good morning, folks!  Are you ready to test your Disney knowledge?  Yes?  Then, let’s go!

Constructed from 1887–89 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, the Eiffel Tower in Paris is the most-visited paid monument in the world.

It has become a global cultural icon of France, is one of the most recognizable structures in the world, and stands 1,063 feet tall.  Thank you, Wikipedia, for all the info!

Of course, as you all know, Epcot’s France Pavilion is centered around a smaller-scale replica of this Parisian monument.  How tall is Disney’s version?

Different Poll … Same Result! The Watercraft Rule!

Well, that’s enough of Disney Springs dining for a while, don’t you think, my friends?  It sure was fun, though.  In the end, however, not even the mighty Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant could best the boats.

Two different polls on two different ‘days’ … same exact result.  The BOATHOUSE is our overwhelming choice.  It is the place to be!

Like I said at the beginning of this little voting journey, “One of the things I truly love about Disney Dining as a topic is that, no matter what particular venue or menu item is under discussion, anyone can have a different opinion.”

Likewise, everyone can have a favorite.  Everyone can have a restaurant that they long to try.  “The morale of the story?  Someone else’s favorite might not end up being yours.  And, yours might not end up being theirs!”

I’ll end by quoting one of our readers – Rob – who commented, “#StandWithTheBoathouse”.  As a group, you certainly did.  Twice!  Congratulations, Boathouse.  You’ve successfully won over the fans!

Just when you thought we were done with Disney Springs dining … its back again!  Oh, come on.  You know you love it!

Hey!  I couldn’t resist the opportunity to ask you a question that’s been burning in my mind since the last time Mrs. All in WDW and I visited Orlando.  What is it, you ask?

Well, we just completed a “survey” that placed The BOATHOUSE, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, Morimoto Asia, and Paddlefish as our new “downtown darlings”.

How do they stack up to “The Icon” of Disney Springs?  Huh?  Icon?  My friends, there’s one restaurant that is always packed beyond belief.

Folks?  This poll is simply Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant against … the best of the “newbies”!  You’ve got one choice.  Which venue do you love?  Where do you want to go?  VOTE!
