Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! Thank you for joining Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and myself for some great Disney trivia! Today we are taking a look at the Rivers of America at Disneyland! I hope you enjoy today’s trivia!
Rivers of America 2003
Disneyland’s 6-million gallon Rivers of America is drained, putting a stop to the boat cruises and cutting off access to Tom Sawyer Island. Although a 2,000-foot long, 8-foot tall blue fence surrounds the dried up area, park guests still peek through cracks to view the boats’ underwater tracks. To entertain guests until the Rivers of America are refilled, Disney employees dressed as Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher re-enact the fence-painting scene from Mark Twain’s classic novel “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.”

My friends, as the 2013 calendar year winds down, we here at My Dreams of Disney would like to take a bit of time and look back at all of the great posts that we have had, and really look back at the impact you, our readers, have had in helping us to become one of the sites that you look to for your daily Disney fix. As a result, this post is written from the heart with you, our reader, in mind, and I hope you enjoy our take at remembering 2013! My plan is to share with you some of the posts that you really enjoyed reading about, so sit back, relax, and enjoy our own version of the wayback machine!
I wrote this post in response to some questions I had from a few friends about what I have on my iPhone, and I can tell you that all of the apps listed in that post are some of my favorite apps. What apps do you have on your phone for getting your Disney fix with? Let me know in the comments, and thanks!
We sent out a call to see if anyone was interested in pursuing their interest in Disney blogging, and Tanya was one of the people that responded and wrote some great posts for us. Among them were her tips about being selected as the First Family at Disney — they actually were selected to open Animal Kingdom one year! This is a great post, and one I highly recommend for anyone that is interested in participating in such a great Disney tradition!
The month after my post about the Disney Apps went live, my friends at TimeStream Software announced an update to their mobile guide app. This updated app included all of the new information related to the Fantasyland Expansion, and is still a must have on my iPhone! Check it out if you haven’t done so yet!
Another of my new writers, Theresa, wrote some great posts as well! In this post, Theresa wrote about some of her tips and tricks that she has found about traveling to Orlando. It’s chock full of information, so if you are planning your trip, have fun and stop by and read these tips!
In this post, Tanya is back talking about some of the ways that you can ruin your Disney Vacation. Read her advice — it may or may not apply to your situation, but they sure do give you ideas about how to make your vacation less magical than it would normally be.
In this post, I shared with you ten places that I have not eaten at over at Walt Disney World, and listed them. I received some great comments from you, but if you haven’t seen the post, check out my list, or better yet, check out our Disney Planning Resources page for reviews of the restaurants that we have eaten at. Thanks!
Outside of our Disney posts, which take up the bulk of our writing, this past year I did start a very special series of posts on March 3rd. That Sunday I started our weekly Prayers for the Week posts, and it has been my privilege to continue those posts to this day. If you ever have any prayer requests that you need us and everyone that reads these posts to pray over, please leave a comment here, or on our Facebook page, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or something, and we will do that for you.
My friends, we here at My Dreams of Disney would like to thank you for spending part of your day stopping by and visiting with us. It is truly an honor to us that you find our information helpful and fun in your Disney planning — or even just in your Disney fix! We are humbled by your presence, and want you to know that. Please have a very fun, but safe, close to 2013 and start of 2014, and remember, don’t drink and drive and don’t text and drive — all of those are tragedies waiting to happen, and totally preventable. Be safe, and we’ll talk to you in 2014!
Our October Calendar Shot comprised of pictures that Sophie and I chose!
It is our first attempt at a montage of photos put together for your enjoyment…I’m not sure we did a very good job arranging them, but the photos themselves we love! Thanks for stopping by, now go check out the rest of the entries, and as always, thank you for stopping by and thank you Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this for us!
