The Mousy Mindboggler – July 2016



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® newsletter, our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design.

Every month, James also Shares the Magic in another way — by posting an all-new puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. The subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!

This month, James writes:

Here is the solution to the last crossword puzzle:


We received 37 correct responses, all of you knowing that the country music label founded on June 1, 1997, was indeed Lyric Street Records. It was so-named after the street in California where Walt and Roy Disney lived. It always amazes me that almost every person, building, street, characters, attractions, roads, bridges, paths, props, etc., have some of sort of name attached, and usually derive from something else in Disney lore. I believe that is the main reason for the popularity of anything Disney.

As an example, the pathway at Walt Disney World between the Boardwalk Resort and the entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios has a name, which I dare you to try to find on any map or sign! Its name is the Judson Green Walkway, so named for Judson Green, who served as an upper level manager at WDW from 1981 to 1987. He also served as CFO of the Walt Disney Company from 1989 to 1991, was named president of Walt Disney Attractions in 1991 and chairman in 1998.

The winner of a Walt Disney World pin, randomly drawn from the correct responses, was Tracy H. of Birmingham, AL.

If you missed it, that’s OK, because here’s another chance.


This month we continue with the special crossword puzzle series, concentrating on Disney History. The subject of this month’s puzzle is “This Month in Disney History – July.” All of these events happened sometime during the month of July. Please note, for this puzzle ALL of the clues are used.

The object is, as always, to have fun, but if you’d like a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, send me the answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to [email protected].
