I think that it is about time that this thread was resurrected.

Recap of the rules:
5 Disney related trivia questions are posted. Once all questions have been correctly answered somebody else posts the next set.

How many hotdogs are consumed in WDW each year?
Where in WDW would you find the tallest Christmas Tree?
How many miles does the WDW bus fleet cover per year?
What is special about the height of the Hollywood Tower Hotel?
How many towers are there on Cinderella's Castle?

No idea on items 1, 2, 3, or 5.

But I believe what is special about the height of ToT (And Expedition Everest as well), is that they are both under 200 feet tall. If they were 200 feet or taller, then they would need lights on them to ward off aircraft...and that just ain't Disney.

1. 5 million hot dogs are consumed each year
2. Contemporary Resort has the tallest christmas tree
3. 15 million miles are covered by the bus fleet each year
4.Its 199 feet because if it was 200 feet the FAA would require a light beacon on the top
5. 18 towers on Cinderella's castle

Just a guess, mind you... but it would seem to me that #4 might possibly be TTA (formerly WEDway). I know it was ORIGINALLY to be in EPCOT and was tested in DL, so it might fit your criteria.

2. What celebration was the castle transformed into a birthday cake for? - Already answered

3. The Walt Disney World Railroad travels clockwise around the Magic Kingdom. At one time it did run counterclockwise during the construction of what attraction? Spash Mountain (opened 1992)

4. What attraction in Tomorrowland was in development and test stage for 10 years before it opened? Carousel of Progress

K, here you definitely have number 3 correct.
Number 4 and 5 are incorrect.
You are right with number 5 being the amt of land that The Walt Disney Company owns TODAY. However back then it was a slightly different number when Walt and Roy purchased it......I'm looking for a different amt of acres....

Number 4 and 5 are still open :)

#5: Not sure of the total figure but in 1964 Robert Price (a.k.a. Disney Lawyer Robert Foster) agreed to an option to purchase 12,400 acres in Florida owned by three Orlando home builders for US$145 per acre. Also documented are the purchase of 1250 acres of land north of Bay Lake and a 8500 acre cattle ranch in Osceola County

Do you want me to give you the exact acre since no one seemed to answer this one and you have a lot of info on it....plus you were correct with the amt of acres that they own today.....Let me know unless you want me to see if someone else chimes in......

YES!!! answer, please..

Joannelet
11-02-2009, 09:14 AM
K!
Here is the answer to number 5!
In total there were 27,443 acres or 43 square miles of property purchased at a cost of a little more than $5 million. (although in one other place I have seen it for 27,800 acres so I would have taken either). Today the Walt Disney Company owns over 30,000 acres. :)

Zawadi

#5 is Mel Blanc (voice of bugs bunny!)

Recorded in 1963. When Mel discovered that Orville would be smoking a cigar, he recorded the voice with a pencil in his mouth!


I think the rockin roller coaster track is 3400 feet.

It only takes 3m:12s to cover the 3403 ft of track.


LOL I think I just found the company for catastrophe canyon...
Is it Mohave Oil Company?

Close enough - Mojave Oil Co. whose logo is also on the gas pumps at Oscar's Super Service Station (stroller rental place)


awe I know number 1 too but I think I'm going to give someone else a try. :)
I don't however know the boat in Norway one. I know I've seen it...it was or is the playground one right? I could take a guess at it...but I'm not 100% sure.....

What have Roy O Disney and Admiral Joe Fowler got in common?

They both have vehicles named after them at Magic Kingdom, is that the answer you were looking for?

Admiral Joe Fowler's name was given to one of the ferry boats that take guests from the Transportation & Ticket Centre to Magic Kingdom and vice versa. This is the boat with green panelling. The blue panelled boat is the General Joe Potter while the red panelled boat is the Richard F. Irvine.

Roy O. Disney is the name of train number 4 on the Walt Disney World Railroad. Train number 1 is the Walter E. Disney and Train number 3 is the Roger E. Broggie. Train number 2 is the Lilly Belle, this one has been semi-retired from passenger service these days but is the show train that takes Mickey & Co. to the front gate on opening. She is then put on standby in the roundhouse as cover for if one of the other trains encounters problems.

You are SO, SO CLOSE!

There is a specific item that common to both the boat (Adirmal Joe Fowler), but not the one that is in service, and Engine #4 (Roy O. Disney)

Zawadi
11-08-2009, 06:46 AM
#4 The Viking longboat, in the Norway pavillion's play area, has appeared in which film?
This is a really tough question.

Hint: Stars Antonio Banderas and directed by John McTiernan

OK here's the next set for you...

What have Roy O Disney and Admiral Joe Fowler got in common?


K, I'm going to have to answer now since my little man has an ear infection and I don't know if I can go back on later....

The Admiral Jow Fowler was a boat that was on the rivers of america in Magic Kingdom. (don't know what year sorry). It went into refurb and when they put it up on the lift to work on it, it wasn't centered and fell....it was too much to repair. The whistle of that boat can now be found on the #4 train the Roy O. Disney.

:)
I hope someone figures out the one in Norway! :)

:congrats:
The year was 1980. The whistle on the Roy O. Disney has a much lower pitch than the whistle on each of the other WDW MK locomotives.

Joannelet
11-08-2009, 09:43 AM
Thanks for letting me know the year! :) I also didn't realize that the pitch was lower...but it makes sense :)

Disney/Touchstone film (1999) based on Michael Crichton's book "Eaters of the Dead" which in turn was adapted from Viking Folklore.

He got a new name there for a second.

Anyways, do one of the other people that guessed or answered questions want to post some new questions?

Anyone out there that wants to join in and ask?

If so ask away!!! :) If not, Zawadi just let me know if you want me to post or not.

I knew you were going to answer this one Zawadi! I had full faith in you! And you got it right!!!!
The manatee was given the name Chester when there was a contest for school children in Florida to name it. THe name CHESTER stands for Children Helping Endangered Species To Eventualy Recover :)

K! Another Disney fanatic has to post some new questions! :)

But number two is correct. The answer is 6 legs. Each leg is 18 feet long and supports a structure that weighs approx 16 million pounds :)

I have read that each leg goes approximately 100ft into the ground.

1. The answer is dreaming!! You are correct!

#4. The answer is WILDERNESS LODGE! Correct! The resort is inspired by the national lodges of the Northwest such as those found in Yosemite and Yellowstone.

#5. Martin Short is one of my favorite actors/comedians so yes of couse it is known as FRANCKS STUDIO after his performance in the movie as a wedding planner in Father of the Bride :) I went there this past July when I was there for my brother in laws wedding when the bride had to drop stuff off so I invited myself along so that I can see inside FRANCKS :) I love that movie!!!


3) The Disney Inn

Number 3: you are both correct!!! Shades of Green was called The Disney Inn from 1986 to 1994. Before that it was called the Golf Resort when it opened in 1973. Now of course its owned by the United States military (yay!) for use by its personnel. :)

Here is the next set for you Disney fanatics...

Who is represented by the first animatronic figure that you see within the Great Movie Ride?


a pyramid of audio-animatronic starlets in a scene from Busby Berkeley's Footlight Parade

I know it starts off with musicals....but I'm not sure if this is the first or not.....

The crystal ball is absolutely correct. The tombstone is good but I discounted it as you don't see Leota's face (as in the crystal ball and another location within the haunted mansion itself).
The question did ask for two references which you have given. So I'll have to give it to you. However, if you get the third then I'll be impressed! :)

For some reason I thought the tombstone with the face whose eyes open etc. was Madame Leota too....thats where I got that brillian idea from LOL :)
But now I remember the little bride at the end is also her face. :)

Leota Thomas provided both the face and voice for Little (Hurry Back) Leota.

So, question #3 is answered.

I think there was a president who wouldn't ride Dumbo because of the elephant republican thing. I don't know about Walt Disney though.

Zawadi
11-19-2009, 02:09 PM
Not sure if this applied to Walt himself but the original Disneyland ride had 10 pink elephants and Walt didn't want to have guests ride an attraction based on an alcohol induced hallucination. (The elephants were later painted gray)

That is true, but not the answer I was looking for.

11-20-2009, 09:31 AM
Wait was that the answer then? That Walt didn't ride it for the same reason that Harry Truman didn't?

I could have sworn I have seen a pic of Walt on Dumbo though.....I thought I saw it one of the pics that adorn Disneyland Hotel.

Thats interesting....when you asked this question I do remember something in one of my Cast Member training classes but couldn't recall that it was the Democratic reason.. I knew Harry Truman did that....but didn't remember Walt Disney doing it. Now I'm 2nd guessing myself on the picture too...I'm not sure. You have stumbled me with this question LOL!! :) I am going to have to go back and look in my cast member training manuals and see if I took notes on this. :)

yay for animal kingdom questions!! :) I was a cast member at Island Mercantile :)

1 is fictional Nepalese village of Serka Zong.

3 is Kali River Rapids (I hope by attraction you are talking about rides) although the Discovery River Boats had a landing there to board the boats called Upcountry Landing...so this was technically the first attraction in that area. :)
Disney considers all of these attractions that were there at opening....(I'm reading from my training manual)-it says under attractions in Asia Caravan Stage, Upcountry Landing (discovery River boats) Maharaja Jungle Trek (opens winter 1998)-I remember when the tigers came in!!! That was such an exciting day!!! They were soooo cute! and Tiger Rapids Run opening in Spring 1999) later renamed Kali River Rapids for opening.

I was thinking of questions too my entire trip to the world last week also Zawadi. I also think its funny you mentioned the captain on the Soarin film because my dad made a funny comment about him and couldn't stop laughing....
but I'm going to try to answer number 5) Was it Kitchen Cabaret which was Food Rocks before it was Soarin?

Also, can you say how many hidden mickeys you are looking for on Tower of Terror? Are you also looking for exterior mickeys as well?

With my dad commenting about Patrick in the Soarin video:
My dad who is 68 yrs old was standing there watching it and he goes you know everytime I see this guy I always think he's a jerk. (I have no idea where he got this conclusion from...but basically he wouldn't want to meet him outside of the video/in person. My dad came to the conclusion that he wouldn't like him.....LOL

K, I have a friend that was a cast member at TOT....I think there are 2 in the boiler room....Ask a cast member the next time you go.....
There is a Hidden Mickey in the form of a watermark in the TOT. It is in the boiler room just as you past the place where the line splits left or right. Choose the left line and look at the brick wall on the left. There is a clear "tri-circle" Mickey watermark on the wall athough it may be hard to see at first. (this is a definite one)

2nd one:When you enter the basement, the first boiler you run into (right in front of you) has a hidden Mickey on the opposite side. Right before the line splits, lean and look at the door. You can see the Mickey right under the glowing door. The other boilers don't have it.
or this is another explanation of it (I think its the same one)....A Hidden Mickey can be found as you enter the basment. The first boiler's grating consists of three circles forming a Mickey. (i've never seen this one..only heard about it)....

Before you go into the library, a Cast Member is stationed at a podium with a lamp on it. In the center of the lamp, on the stem, you will see definite mouse ears.

The swirl of stars just before the main elevator doors open do form a hidden Mickey, but only on the rightmost elevators (I doubt this one is in the book-but people have claimed they've seen it...)

On the bookshelf under the trumpet on the music sheets the musical score is Mickeys and the notes have ears on them

2) Which park at opening had cast members develop (niches) or stories that they actually worked and lived at that theme park?

I don't know this one so I've got a 75% chance of getting it wrong ;)

Based on several interactions with the CMs on Tower of Terror, I'm going guess at Disney Studios.

When DAK first opened the cast members were to act as if they lived and worked there.

FALSE - Space Mountain at 183ft is comes second to Cinderella's Castle at 189ft

Space Mountain is in fact the tallest structure in the Magic Kingdom, taller than Cinderella Castle, but it was "sunk" about 15 feet into the ground as to not take focus away from the landmark of the park: Cinderellas Castle...SO, it is techically NOT the tallest structure. Got that?

You are correct.

K, I have an issue with this question :) LOL leave it to me!!!
But the Magic Kingdom Space Mountain in Florida is not 15 ft into the ground. The one in Disneyland California is :)
Space Mountain in Florida is 183 feet above the ground and 300 feet in diameter with a floor of 72,500 square feet, over 4.5 million cubic feet.
Space Mountain in California-the imagineers couldn't build a space mountain that can be viewed from every angle like the one in florida since the tighter space in Cali. So it had the same design only 200 feet diameter as opposed to 300 feet. and in order to prevent the attraction from dwarfing the castle (Sleeping Beauty's) the base of the structure was placed 17 feet underground giving the mountain a height of 117 feet from ground level to the top spire.
So the Space Mountain in Florida is much taller than the Space Mountain in Cali regardless of the amt of feet underground it is.
But yet the answer is still the same because the castle is still the highest in Magic Kingdom Florida.....
