Pocahontas with Sophie at Rafiki’s Planet Watch!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! Along with my friends Jenn “The Social Media Icon” from Disney Babies Blog, Heidi “I live at the beach” from Heidi’s Head, and Jodi “The Author, NutriSystem blogger, Disney Contest Queen, and so much more” from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, I’m Mike “I can’t wait til Disneyland” from My Dreams of Disney, here to share another Disney trivia tidbit!

In today’s post, we are taking a look at the Disney movie Pocahontas.

Did You Know…about Pocahontas

In 1995, over 100,000 people attended a free outdoor premiere of Disney’s Pocahontas on the Great Lawn in New York City’s Central Park. Shown on four 80-foot high screens, it is the largest opening ever for an animated film. A majority of the tickets were given away in advance in a random lottery to those who responded to newspaper advertisements. Pocahontas will be released to select theaters in the U.S. June 16 and generally released June 23.

That is incredible! I never knew that. Special thanks, of course, to the Disney History site This Day in Disney History for that neat piece of Disney trivia!

Now, please take a look at the rest of the Disney trivia for today, and thanks for stopping by!  If you have a blog, and some Disney trivia to share, please write up a post, click on the image below, and add it to the list!

10 Days til Disneyland – Space Mountain!

Space Mountain at Disneyland is a uniquely different ride from the one at Walt Disney World.  Sophie doesn’t like the Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, but I’m hoping that she will at least give it a try at Disneyland Park because the biggest difference is that the space vehicles have side-by-side seating, not one after another.  With this in mind, Sophie has told me that she is going to try the roller coaster out — because, as she puts it, “If I’m terrified, I can grab onto someone!”

We are sitting at an even 10 days until our trip to Disneyland, and each day is one day closer to a fantastic trip!  Some of the readers of My Dreams of Disney have told me that they are going to be there also, so we’ll see if we happen to come across them in our travels!  Wouldn’t that be fun?  Also, my buddy Denny has told me that I need to be his eyes and ears over there since he won’t be there, and I have to report back all that I experience!

Have you ridden the Disneyland and Walt Disney World versions of Space Mountain?  If so, which version did you like better?  Why not take a moment and answer our poll below, and thanks for stopping by!
