    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

    You've got me on this one - I have no idea

    However, a logical guess - was it when the Snow White Attraction reopened after renovation on 16 Dec 1994????

    Here's two of my recycled un-answered trivia questions:

    1. What two tributes to the original Submarine Voyage can be found in the Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage at Disneyland?

    2. Who did the Sherman Brothers initially want to donate the royalties from the song, "it's a small world" to? What did Walt Disney advise them to do with it instead?

    a) Charity
    b) Put their kids through college

    Sure. I'll accept these answers. First portion you're correct on the children's charity answer. However, as far as I know the only thing that both of the brothers mentioned came from their recently released documentary.

    Apparently, Walt was driving the two brothers back to the studio from where they were and the boys said that they wanted to donate all the royalties from the song "it's a small world" to the kids. Immediately following that, Walt slammed the brakes on and pulled over and told them that they "Weren't going to give those royalties away." and "Don't be silly... you're getting a lot of money for this."

    So, in a round-a-bout way the Sherman Brothers *could* have potentially used it to put their kids through schooling and post-secondary.

    I have *no* idea on the Submarine question; I'm not *that* familiar with the west-coast attractions

    What's the answer?
