This week I’ve got several “Fact for the Day”  items from you from one of my favorite sites, This Day in Disney History.

Fact for the Day…

Since this week seems to have so many great facts for the day, I’ve actually got a couple for you to enjoy!

Disney World built the Fairy Tale Wedding Pavilion so that Cinderella Castle is perfectly framed in two views: through the window behind the altar where the couple is married, and through a hedge archway outside the chapel.

In addition to the Fairy Tale Wedding Pavilion, I’ve also got one that directly relates to the most common form of Disney Transportation: buses!

About 300 Walt Disney World buses transport guests around the Florida resort, making the Walt Disney World fleet the third largest in Florida behind Miami and Jacksonville!

I hope that you found these two trivia tidbits to your liking!  Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to write your posts and share them with ours!  Make it a Disney Day everyone!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia – Steamboat Willie

While Steamboat Willie wasn’t introduced to the world until November 18, 1928, today, September 30 is still a big day in the history of Steamboat Willie. It was on this day in 1928 that the following Disney Trivia was created:

September 30, 1928:
A second recording session for Steamboat Willie takes place in New York with conductor Carl Edouarde and a 15-piece band. The first session on September 15 had been a disaster as the musicians couldn’t play in time with the animated film. This time Walt is prepared to deal with the problem of synchronization. Ub Iwerks has made a special print of the film with an animated bouncing ball – on both the soundtrack and the film. The ball rises and falls to the accent of the beat, thus creating a visual signal and a soft audio click. Instead of being projected above the band, Iwerks’ print is projected directly down onto Edouarde’s printed score. The session takes place in just three hours and is a complete success! (The cartoon short will debut November 18.)

Thanks for stopping by today as we explore some unique Disney Trivia!  I always enjoy reading the trivia that my friends Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse have to share, as well as the ones that you all add to our group!  It makes for a fun time for everyone!  To read the rest of the entries, just click on them below, and thanks for stopping by!  Whatever you do, make sure to make it a Disney Day, and don’t forget to enter to win a $400 or $200 Disney Gift Card!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia – Tree of Life

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

 

Hello everyone, and welcome to Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia, the weekly Disney Trivia series that I host along with my friend Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head!  Today I’ve got a unique piece of trivia for you that is based around the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park!

Did you know?

That the Tree of Life measures 145 feet tall and 160 feet wide, and that it features 325 extinct, contemporary, or imaginary creatures?  Additionally, there are over 103,000 leaves situated on the over 8,000 branches, and that each leaf was done by hand?  That is an incredible amount of detail that they put into the Tree!  Also, there is the 430 seat theater that houses the show “It’s a Bugs Life” that is located underneath the tree!

All of this detail is courtesy of the incredible book titled “Magical Mouse Schoolhouse: Learn While You Play at Walt Disney World Resort” by our very own Jodi Whisenhunt!  If you don’t have this book, go out and get it, I’ve linked over to where you can get it in the title.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Now, please go check out the rest of the entries this week!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia – BTMRR Opens!

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

September 2, 1979: The day BTMRR opened at Disneyland!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post!  Today I’m joined with my friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse (who is soaking up the Disney Magic as we speak!), Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head.  Thanks friends for joining us!  Today I have a couple of different trivia tidbits for you, but the first one involves one of my favorite Disney roller coasters — Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!  It was on this day in 1979 that BTMRR opened at Disneyland, 34 years ago!  Regular readers will remember that I have featured it before in the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia posts, but that was for a different reason, so I decided it’s anniversary date was reason enough to feature it again.  Unfortunately we were unable to ride it when we went out because it was going through a major refurbishment, but I love riding it at Walt Disney World!  For the record, the Walt Disney World version opened on November 15, 1980.

Now, of course, today is also Labor Day in the United States, and I found something in this day in Disney History that I just had to share with you.  It turned out that on this day in 1959 the Donald Duck short cartoon How to have an Accident at Work was released!  Now, Labor Day was first started in 1882, and the first state observance was in 1887 in Oregon, but by 1959 had been an established holiday for many years.  As a result, I can only think that the date for this short to be released was not an accident, and proved just how much of a sense of humor Walt Disney and his staff had.  Now, for your enjoyment, I present How to have an Accident at Work, via YouTube!  Enjoy, but remember, it’s just a cartoon, not something you should strive for in your own jobs!

Thanks for stopping by today, now, go check out the rest of the entries for this week!  Have fun, and be careful — accidents happen naturally, don’t do anything to bring them on yourself!
