    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.

    Excellent. Well Done,
    However to answer them within 23 minutes, they must have been too easy

    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

    5. How many total acres were originally purchased by Walt and Roy Disney when the park opened? 30000 of which the parks now occupy 1100 with 7100 developed in total

    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
