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!
