3/7 for the latest round of trivia. I want to give myself a half point for the question about the America Pavilion Song because I know the words to the song. Lol.

Adding 75 minutes for my final exercise of the 2-week program. Going to rest tomorrow, then finish the month with some more enjoyable routines.

I did well on much of the EPCOT trivia. The Guinness World Record answer was a fun one that I did not already know.

I’m still not doing too well on the trivia this week (2 correct, and 1 that I “knew” and could completely picture, but couldn’t think of the actual name). It's fun to learn the answers, though!

No new minutes because I fell askeep on the couch last night! I intended to just watch TV for a bit after dinner before getting on the treadmill, but I guess the early dark got to me.

    Good morning, and Merry Christmas Eve to those who are celebrating!

    Here are some Disney Christmas-season trivia questions:

    From 1995-2016, Disney's Hollywood Studios featured a holiday light display named after what family?

    The Osborne Family. Fun fact: my father lived in Little Rock in the early 1990s, and we saw the Osborne lights on the Osbornes' house (a very large property on a major road). They actually bought the two adjacent houses to have more room to display lights. Traffic was a real mess, and I can see why their neighbors ended up suing them to stop the light display.

    What has replaced the lights on Cinderella's Castle this year?


    What EPCOT holiday celebration (sadly canceled this year) has a celebrity narrator and a choir?

    The Candlelight Processional. Disneyland has a smaller version of this event (also sadly cancelled this year).

    Which WDW park featured the Merry Menagerie for the 2019 holiday season?


    Which WDW resort featured a gingerbread carousel for the 2019 holiday season?

    Beach Club.

    Over on the West Coast, which Disneyland attraction is transformed with lights for the holidays (in normal years)?

    It's a Small World. Disneyland's Haunted Mansion gets the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay.

    Is Disneyland's Main Street, U.S.A. Christmas tree 40-49 feet, 50-59 feet, 60-69 feet, or 70-79 feet tall?

    60 feet tall.

    At Disney California Adventure, which two Cars Land attractions get holiday makeovers?

    Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters becomes Luigi's Joy to the Whirl and Mater's Junkyard Jamboree becomes Mater's Jingle Jamboree
