Today’s #DisneyTrivia is about Maelstrom — good luck with our trivia question!

Hello everyone, and welcome to our Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia segment for this week!  Christmas is certainly coming on strong, isn’t it?  I hope everyone is ready and able to enjoy the holiday season, and that you are able to spend some good, quality time with your family.

I am pleased to be joined by my friends Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, Heidi from Heidi’s Head, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse for this week (truly, they take pity on me each week and let me join in…)

This week’s trivia is about Maelstrom, but I don’t think it will be all that difficult for you hard core fans.  Let’s see if you can get this trivia question:

In the Maelstrom in EPCOT there is a troll that tells you to disappear. How many heads does this troll have?

A) 1

B) 6

C) 3

D) 2

Read along, and you’ll get the answer at the bottom of the post.

Did you know that you can join in on our trivia segments each week?  We’ve got this thing, called a “linky” — don’t ask me where the term comes from because I don’t know — and if you have a blog, you can write your own post, publish it, and then add your information into the linky so that we can all see it.  What do you think?  Care to give it a try?  Go for it!

In the meantime, please click on the links of the other entries and read what great trivia they have for you this week!  Now, about that answer.  Of course you all know this — the troll has 3 heads.  Thanks for playing along!

The subject of this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!

Hello everyone, after our snafu last week with the server, we are back this week with our Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post for the week!  Along for the ride are Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse!  I know Jodi and myself would like to thank Jenn and Heidi for holding down the fort for us last week!  I also know that Jodi and I would have much rather written our TTT posts than deal with server issues!

Expedition Everest

Today’s trivia comes to us from the Walt Disney World Trivia Book, Volume 2, by Lou Mongello!  I was thumbing through it, when I happened upon this very interesting tidbit — at least, I thought it was interesting!

Did you know…that 1,800 tons of steel was used in Expedition Everest’s mountain structure? That is about 6 times the amount of steel that would be used in a traditional office building of the same size!

1,800 tons = 3,600,000 pounds of steel!

When I read that, I was floored!  It is a ton (pun intended!) of steel in that mountain, which, at 199 1/2 feet tall, is the tallest structure in all of Walt Disney World.  Quick followup trivia question:

Why is Expedition Everest specifically 199 1/2 feet tall?  Why not 200′ tall?

A) Because mechanically, it had to be exactly 199 1/2 feet tall.
B) Because if it was 200 feet tall, it would need a red FAA airline beacon to warn aircraft.
C) Because the Imagineers have an odd sense of humor.
D) I don’t know why…

While all four of those answers make sense, and might be actually part of the backstory that I don’t know about, the answer that I actually have read about is B.  Did you get it right?  Let me know if you did, and congratulations!  Now, head on over and read the posts from my friends, and thanks for stopping by!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia – the Garden Grill Restaurant!

The Garden Grill Restaurant Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!  Today we are exploring trivia from the Walt Disney World Trivia Book, Volume 2, by Lou Mongello.  This weekly series is the brainchild of Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, who invited Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and myself to join her in our weekly look at trivia from around Disney!

Today we have a good one for you, let’s see if you can figure it out:

The Trivia Question:

Q: What was the original name of The Garden Grill restaurant located in the Land Pavilion?

a.) The Circle of Food
b.) The Good Turn
c.) The Land Grille Room
d.) Lunching with The Land

Did You Know?

That The Garden Grill, a revolving restaurant in The Land Pavilion, rotates faster at breakfast than at dinner because Disney wants diners to experience an entire revolution during their meal and people spend less time eating breakfast.

And now, the Answer!

b.) The Good Turn!  Like many of the eateries in The Land Pavilion, the original table-service restaurant has been renamed a number of times since the pavilion’s opening. It opened as The Good Turn on October 1, 1982, and then became the Land Grille Room in 1986.  Today it is known as The Garden Grill and offers Character Dining.  Whatever its name, the restaurant has (literally) revolved around the boat ride below since its opening.
