OK...here goes...it looks like it's time to begin yet another edition of our beloved Parks Game...Still going strong after 3 years!
It is customary to write a new introduction to each and every thread...but Granny wrote such a good one for the last one, I decided to use that one...(slightly edited to keep it up to date :))

This continues the long-running DIS board trivia game about the WDW theme parks. This thread was begun on September 17, 2001 by supamaki in the days after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, and was a source of escapism and a safe haven in the days following that great tragedy. Since that time, this thread has stayed on this board through it’s eleven previous versions with hundreds of players partaking in the fun of asking and answering questions related to WDW theme park trivia.

There are only a few rules….

You may ask a question after correctly answering a question and being awarded an AAQ (Ask A Question) card.

Questions should be in bold to allow us to follow the game more easily.

Lurking is okay, but it’s a lot more fun to jump in and guess! There is no punishment for wrong answers here!!

Questions should be focused on the four WDW theme parks in order to maintain our place on this board. A continued thank you to the moderators for allowing this game to continue for more than 3 years.

And, in keeping with Parks Game tradition, we will begin this thread with the question that started it all….

In what WDW attraction is there a dog named Nana? And what year did it open?


Now, come on in and join the fun!

Ok.. the answer.. wait wait.. I know this one.. it's umm.. uhh...

What is Peter Pan's Flight and 1971?? :)

This one is a tough one to start off Part 13...

In Pirates of the Caribbean, what former animator, composor and imagineer narrates the introduction to the dead men's grotto in the form of a talking Jolly Roger?

Shir Kahn

Magic Kingdom, Peter Pan ride in 1983?

Oops, that was DL!

In continuation of the last thread, I need to hand out two AAQ's to N10CJT
and dzneynut for their correct answer of 'Serka Zong' being the village that you pass through on the way to Expedition Everest.

Passing along a supply of AAQ's to N10CJT & dzneynut

In deference to the history of the game, I humbly defer any right I may have to an AAQ from the previous edition. Hopefully I'll know the answer to one of the questions here and be able to ask my next question at that time!
As to the question at hand, well, I have no idea what its correct answer is. But no matter..... if Shir Kahn's answer is correct, I'd surely butcher the spelling just as I did in the answer to the final question from the previous edition..... :goodvibes
Have fun, everyone! I'm glad the game is continuing!

In truth, I don't much like the ride, and thus have no idea..... :goodvibes

Ackkk! So sorry for missing everything. The night I got my AAQ was the night I was able to book excursions for my cruise...2.5 hours of staring at little fish swim across the screen forming Mickey. Bit of trivia...did you know there are 27 fish on the DCL website when you're waiting for it to load?

Anywho, I'll hold on to this AAQ for now. Back to the game!

Mickey_Maniac

Now that my thirst is quenched, I'll toss out a softball. Sine we are on the subject of one of my favorite attractions:

How many Aerosmith songs can you hear on RNR? Name them.

outlander
02-26-2008, 05:04 PM
I think there are six but I can't think of more than four.:upsidedow

1. Love in an elevator
2. Sweet emotion
3. Dude looks like a lady
4. Walk this way

stepdisney
02-26-2008, 06:02 PM
Dude (Looks Like a Lady), Walk this Way, Love in an Elevator(which has been changed to 'Love in a Roller Coaster' as you pull in to the station at the end of the ride), Sweet Emotion, Young Lust, F.I.N.E., Back in the Saddle, and Nine Lives have been heard. Plus, What Kind of Love are You On? is played in the event of a failure.

I guess that's nine.

:thumbsup2

N10CJT
02-26-2008, 06:06 PM
I heard somewhere that there are 9, as a few of the cars play multiple songs. Name them? No way. Except for some of the old stuff and their appearance on Wayne's World, I pretty much hate Aerosmith.

ABBA.....

:rotfl2:

Mickey_Maniac
03-05-2008, 07:00 AM
ABBA.....

:rotfl2:

Too funny, I could just picture it. The coaster slowly works it's way to to a whopping 15 miles per hour as everyone mellows out and relaxes for the entire ride...

Back to reality, I believe the first group they approached was The Rolling Stones?

ryley26
03-05-2008, 08:11 AM
I believe it was U2

disneycruise05
03-05-2008, 07:05 PM
Right you are Mickey_Maniac! WDI first approached the Rolling Stones. When they discovered that they were too expensive, they looked at U2, before finally settling on Aerosmith.

A rolling AAQ to you, Mickey!

As for ABBA...well...

Mickey_Maniac

How about Ace Ventura Live

Mickey_Maniac
03-06-2008, 07:23 AM
That wasn't it, but I'm thinking I should rephrase my question to be more accurate.

What was shown in the Little Mermaid theater before Little Mermaid?

N10CJT
03-06-2008, 02:22 PM
It was "Here Come the Muppets"

Mickey_Maniac

Not Beauty and the Beast.

Another little hint, when it moved, it moved to a different park.

Mickey_Maniac

OK, Lets see if we can revive this thread. Here's another hint.

It moved from the Studios to MK

If that's correct, I don't recall that at all. How long was it in DS?

Mickey_Maniac
03-10-2008, 12:09 PM
astrostan is correct. The Legend of the Lion King was previewed in the Studios for about 3-4 months to gauge audience opinion before the decision was made to make it a permanent show and move it to the MK. It wasnt even really heavily advertised. They had CMs approach guests to ask if they would like to see a new show. Audiences were pretty small in size. DW and I were fortunate enough to see it during this time.

Here's a roaring AAQ to astrostan...

cabanafrau
03-17-2008, 09:33 AM

Animal Kingdom, the Safari ride, for the protection and safety of the animals.

I think Cheshire is pretty close here, but Test Track is a roller coaster. So my guess is actually the Lights, Motors Action Stuntshow, since those cars would need to pass all sorts of tests.

cabanafrau

Thanks Outlander. I don't like to look up the answers, but I did to confirm this one. Turns out I was 1/2 a foot off..... the correct answer is precisely 52 1/2 feet.
But let me keep things going with a question.........

What Disney World attraction required the development of technology more advanced than that utilized by NASA at that time?

Mickey_Maniac

That would be Mission:Space

N10CJT

Sticking with Test Track:

How many wheels are on each car?

N10CJT
04-17-2008, 02:03 PM
Well I don't remember any more than four being visible. But of course all cars have steering wheels, and Test Track seats six. So I'm going to say that there are 10 wheels total.
(I could, of course, be omitting those on the roller track itself)

outlander
04-17-2008, 02:48 PM
We have had this question recent enough that I really should remember the answer....but....I don't exactly. I know it was something crazy....

How about ..... 32?

CheshireSmile
04-17-2008, 03:30 PM
I believe it's 22, but there's only 4 visible so the car looks 'normal'

Woo hoo!!! Okay, this is my first attempt at a question and it's a two-parter. I have no idea how easy or hard it is, but it was told to me and I found it interesting and hadn't heard it before.

A car in the GMR has a license plate that reads 021-429, where is the car and what does the plate signify?

disneycruise05
04-18-2008, 01:08 AM
No rules on how hard or easy a question should be. Just that the question should pertain to the four WDW parks, and that you post the question in bold so that it's easy to find.

Oh, and that you ask a question only after getting an AAQ card.










And the answer is it refers to the Valentine's Day Massacre and I believe is in the sense with the gangsters.

Wow, guess it WAS easy!! I'm a history major so I'm always on the look-out for historical references at Disney. So a Super Quick Answer AAQ to you!!!

disneycruise05
04-20-2008, 03:06 AM
Love Disney history as well. I was a history major up until last semester...couldn't stand it anymore. Too many 15-page papers on stuff that I don't care about. Oh well. Now I'm public relations. I would LOVE to do event planning at WDW. However, if a spot ever opened up at the Disney Archive, I would apply in a heartbeat.

Here's a softball, sticking with TGMR (yeah...really original...I like to stay in one area) that could kinda be historical (or just for movie buffs...):

True or false: the plane used in the Casablanca scene is the exact same one used in the movie.

Mickey_Maniac
04-20-2008, 11:03 AM
Even though everyone seems to believe it is actually the same plane, it is not.

CheshireSmile
04-20-2008, 11:03 AM
That would be False! It is a very popular Disney urban legend. The soundstage where that scene was filmed was not large enough to accommodate a full-sized plane. The scene was originally planed to be filmed on location with a real plane, but Casablanca filming began a few months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and location filming particularly at airports or with planes was severely restricted.

(I know Mickey_Maniac beat me, but I decided to leave my post up anyhow. Yay Mickey_Maniac!)

Mickey_Maniac
04-20-2008, 11:07 AM
Ya, but you had the actual history behind the answer (for all these history buffs...).

What are the names of the Tom Sawyer Island rafts?

N10CJT
04-25-2008, 12:57 AM
I don't know how many of them there are, but I imagine they're named for the main characters in the book. Jim's pretty minor in it, and I doubt the Judge, Joe, Sid, Muff or Mary would make the cut.
So some combination of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, Injun Joe, and Widow Douglas would be my guess. Since I don't know how many rafts there are, I'll go with all six as my answer!

Mickey_Maniac
04-25-2008, 08:57 AM
Kind of like taking the scater gun approach, huh?

There are three active rafts although only 2 are usually in use. The names are Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Injun Joe.
