Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: it's a small world

"It's a world of laughter, a world of tears, it's a world of hopes and a world of fears.  There's so much that we share, that it's time we're aware, it's a small world after all!"

Now that the song is firmly implanted in your brain (you're welcome!), here is a fascinating fact about the attraction.  Before the Sherman Brothers came up with this melody, they initially proposed that the music accompanying the ride be a blending of several National Anthems.  I personally can't imagine this ride without it's current theme song!  Today's trivia is courtesy of Susan Veness's great book, "The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World Trivia".  Oh, and courtesy of my hubby, who bought me the book as a "just because" gift! :)

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: Living With the Land

It's time for another round of Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia!  Do you know why there are red lights in the aqua culture area of "Living with the Land"? 

At the time when this attraction was being built, research suggested that red lights were beneficial to aqua culture.  More recent studies suggest that the color of the  light has no impact.  The red lights, though, still remain a very recognizable part of the ride through.

As always, a huge shout-out to +Disney Babies Blog+My Dreams of Disney+Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, and +Heidi's Head for co-hosting the fun!

Tiggerific Tuesday:The American Adventure

Wow.  It's been almost 2 months since my last post!  Sorry for the long hiatus -- we were renovating and moving into a new home, which cut into my blog time.  Back to it! :)

Welcome to this week's Tiggerific Tuesday!  Did you know that there were originally supposed to be 3 narrators for the American Adventure?  Will Rogers was originally to be a 20th century narrator; eventually, it was decided that 2 was enough.  Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Langhorn Clemens (AKA Mark Twain) were retained; Will Rogers still appears, but in a minor role.
