Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler



If you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, you’ll know that we run a little game called the Mousy Mindboggler. Sometimes it’s a word game, sometimes it’s a riddle, sometimes it’s some other brain-teasing challenge — but it’s always fun!

Once each month, in the AllEars® Bits and Bites issue, our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design. The puzzles have some sort of Disney theme, of course, but will not be restricted to the Disney theme parks. The type of puzzle is up to James. Also up to him? The bestowing of a prize — a collectible Disney pin from his extensive collection.

Around the middle of each month, James also Shares the Magic in another way — by posting a puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. Again, the subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!

Here’s the link to this month’s puzzle:


So… Think you know Disney inside and out? Put on your thinking cap!

This month’s new puzzle continues the theme park subject by looking at DIsney’s Animal Kingdom. The bonus clue this month shouldn’t be near as tough as last month’s! Good Luck!

The object is of course to have fun, BUT if you want a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, arrange the letters that are circled in the puzzle to come up with the answer to the bonus question, which relates to the puzzle theme. This month, we think that the bonus clue is tough enough that you’ll actually have to complete most of the puzzle to come up with the solution! Good Luck!

Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to [email protected]

Send the bonus term or phrase by email no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on November 8, 2013. All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing, and the winner will be awarded a Disney pin. The answers and drawing winner will be posted in this Guest Blog, along with a new puzzle, in mid-November.




Here is the answer key to last month’s Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler:


As many of you discovered (142 of you!), the bonus clue answer was Capt. Horatio Witherspoon, for many years serving as the preshow narrator for the Voyage of the Little Mermaid attraction. His voice is long gone, but a picture of his wife is still hanging on the wall of the preshow area, along with many other artifacts; make it a point to check them out!

The name picked at random from all of the correct responses to receive a DIsney pin was Rachel M. of Quincy, MA.

Thanks for playing, everyone!

We hope you enjoy this Mousy Mindboggler, and we welcome any comments or suggestions.
