Did you know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia About The Water in the Seas with Nemo and Friends?
Do you add a little salt to your meal, how about a truck load? The Seas with Nemo and Friends (formally The Living Seas) takes a lot of water and salt to keep the Friends happy. But how much, let’s take a guess.
To get the water prepared how many truckloads of salt was required???
The recipe called for 27 truckloads of sodium chloride, or common table salt. Just a tad bit more than what comes on your fries. And some other fun facts, spaceship earth could fit inside the aquarium with room to spare. It is 203 feet in diameter, 27 feet deep and holds 5.7 million gallons of salt water. As you look in at the over 8,000 fish and other sea animals you are looking through 6 to 8 inches of acrylic windows. And, to keep all the friends fed they go through over two tons of food each week, yes each week.

Did You Know This Week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Beauty and the Beast?
This week’s trivia is from one of my wife’s favorite Disney classics, Beauty and the Beast. The history of this movie goes back to Walt Disney himself as he attempted to adapt the story into an animated feature in the 1930’s and again in the 1950’s, both were unsuccessful. The film’s original version was directed by Richard Purdum and was a non-musical and a bit more dark than the final feature. Below is Purdum’s original story line.
After the success of The Little Mermaid in 1989 the Disney Company decided to move forward with Beauty and the Beast, but this time as a musical. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival in 1991 with very positive reviews. Of course, Beauty and the Beast was a huge box office success and has gone on to garner over $420 million. The movie was also graced with many awards including the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture and was the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. In 1994, Beauty and the Beast became the first Disney animated film to be adapted into a Broadway musical.
It’s amazing to see how the movie started and what was finally released. I’m glad they went the musical route as I can’t imagine the movie without Tale As Old As Time, what do you think? Don’t miss all the great trivia on the hop below.
Did You Know This Week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia About Spaceship Earth?
Riding Spaceship Earth this past weekend I began to wonder, how many ride vehicles are there? The omnimover style ride is constantly moving and the ride lasts around 15 minutes from start to end. So what would your guess be?
D is correct. There are 152 vehicles on Spaceship Earth. With 4 people per vehicle that puts a little over 600 people on the attraction at one time. A couple other facts. Spaceship earth is 180 feet tall and weighs in at 16,000,000 pounds. With it’s size, it has an amazing gutter system and virtually no water drips from it during the Florida downpours, water goes from the gutters into underground pipes and finally into the World Showcase Lagoon. And for those of you that like to call it the golf ball, if it was a golf ball the golfer would need to be over 1 mile tall. Fore!

Did you know Today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Disneyland?
On a recent trip to Disneyland, my brother pointed out that you should take a look at the gold marker located on the ground just as you pass through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle into Fantasyland. Though nothing very fancy, this golden marker marks an important location at Disneyland…….What could it be?
This golden marker marks the geographical center of Disneyland today. The original center is at the middle of the large compass south of the castle but with park expansion (Mickey’s Toontown) it has moved and is now marked by this golden marker. Take a look next time you are there.
