To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt’s Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!
Happy Thanksgiving – Jour de l’Action de grÃ¢ce to all the Canadian Players! I hope this year has given you a lot to be thankful for and you have even more in the upcoming year!
We also have Eid-al-Adha this week. My best wishes to everyone who is celebrating!
Cynthia Hitchcock, we totally understand the post-Disney vacation crying.
Patty Carty, are you still there in the World? Or does Cynthia need to make room on the blues bench? I’ll get the Disney bear, just in case. (And thank you for your lovely note!)
On the flip side, The Schweizer Family and Kerri Coggins are now in the World! Have a wonderful time! If you see Deb Wills, tell her what a good job I’m doing!
Just kidding, Deb.
Happy 300th to you too, Tricia Petty, The Fosbenders, and Claire Gregory! Thank you! I can’t believe you guys noticed. 🙂 When I typed 300 last week, it made me wonder how long it’s been since I started with WitW. So I looked it up:
February 13, 2011 with challenge #164! That’s when Barrie introduced me to everyone. Can you believe it? If you look at my first challenges, I was much more… succinct. 🙂 Which reminds me of when I took a Disney character quiz during “December to Remember” celebrations. It said I was quiet. The team said they never saw someone get it so wrong. LOL
Thank you also to The Young Family for their wonderful note! How’s the UK?
From last week: Challenge #300:
And here’s the answer:

Engine Co. 71, the fire station at Town Square in the Magic Kingdom. I used to love going here to see all the patches and badges from firehouses from everywhere. Now Engine Co. 71 gathers people to play the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card game.
Like John Bickers said, ” I am always excited when I see it to my left, and tired when it moves to my right.”
Jennifer Harmon, I read that many of those patches and badges from here went to Reedy Creek Fire and Rescue Department so maybe your husband’s is there? An old report said they used to give tours of the station. They have a website and a Facebook page, so maybe you can contact them through it and ask. They also have an online store where you can get shirts, although they don’t have the ones that said “Protecting the Magic” anymore. I love that phrase!) You can also find fire dept. patches for Disneyland, the actual Walt Disney Studios, and Reedy Creek on ebay. Just search for Disney fire department. So maybe you can get one of each and put them on a jacket for your husband? Something unique and the holidays are coming up.
To your husband, Chris Kelly, Chief Meeker, Mary Beth Tarbet’s uncle, Kelly Smith’s father-in-law and all the others serving in Fire and Rescue, thank you!
Tom Buck, I can’t imagine the days when you went into Disneyland and Walt was there in his apartment above the fire house. Just seeing the lamp in the window gets to me now. Walt’s apartment was going to be in Cinderella Castle in Disney World; in fact, one of his windows is above the Plaza and looks to the castle. My favorite story on why it’s there is because Roy wanted his brother to have the best view in the park.
Dave Carriere, my dogs have so many things from the old store here and the others in Walt Disney World!
This has been a long one, Players, but I hope you found at least some of it interesting and fun!
