Let’s Have Some Fun “with the Land”! This Week’s Trivia BLAST!

Good Wednesday, folks!  One has to wonder … with Disney pretty much refurbishing everything in sight, is Epcot’s Living with the Land on their ‘hit list’?

As attractions go, it’s not the most exciting experience in Walt Disney World.  Having said that, it’s one of our family favorites.

It sure does serve a purpose, though, doesn’t it?  Hey!  What else are you going to do while you’re waiting for your Soarin’ FP+ to come to life?

Like us, I bet you’ve enjoyed Living with the Land dozens of times.  Have you paid attention to its detail, however?

Tackle these trivia questions, folks.  Are you an expert in each of The Land’s nuances?  Yes?  Let’s see!

The answers will come in a few days, my friends, so stay tuned!  Oh!  And, by the way, I’ll unveil yet another exciting “challenge” tomorrow!  Stop back!

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?

“Magical” Trivia Revealed! A Video Answer To Yesterday’s Question?

I want to thank Pat Jeanetti of the The Mickey Dudes Podcast for the lead in to today’s post.  In a comment, yesterday, he said …

“Now I see the ‘trick’ in the wording … as many of these were Opening Day attractions.  Four out of the five, in fact.  But, actual ‘physical age’ … that is the key to unlocking this answer!  Great question!”

Thanks a lot, Pat!  You are exactly right!  What I asked was … “in physical age, what is the oldest attraction in Magic Kingdom?”

Folks, currently closed for refurbishment, from late April through mid-May , Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, is not your everyday ‘merry–go–round’!

Yes, formerly known as Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel, it was built in 1917 for the Detroit Palace Garden Park.  It was later moved to Maplewood Olympic Park in New Jersey.  That’s where Disney designers discovered it!

Of course, they turned it into the wonderful attraction it is today.  As a matter of fact, it’s one of Mrs. All in WDW’s favorites!

So, my friends.  Was the question, itself, too “tricky”?  Was it much too hard?  Most people think about Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress being designed for the 1964 New York World’s Fair and think … that’s old!

There were two potentially correct answers to our trivia question.  Carrousel, naturally.  I think that’s the right answer, for the record.

However, one of the Walt Disney World Railroad’s locomotives – the Roy O. Disney – was built in 1916.  The rest of the attraction, though?  Well, let’s just say it can’t beat Prince Charming!

If you chose Magic Kingdom’s ‘Regal Carrousel’ when you selected an answer, give yourself a ‘gold star’.  The railroad?  Humbly accept a ‘silver’.  Great answer, but not quite the park’s oldest attraction!
