Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler (April 2013)



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 is also going to Share the Magic in another way — by posting a puzzle 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!

This second Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler Puzzle (a little bit late this month, sorry) is a crossword-style puzzle with the theme: Walt Disney World Resorts.

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


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

The purpose of this puzzle is to provide a fun way to learn, but if you want to take it a step further, 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.

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 May 5, 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-May. (And we promise we’ll be on time next month!)


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


The winner of a Walt Disney World Tinker Bell pin was Amy Wolter from Temple, PA. Her name was randomly selected from 82 correct responses who knew that John Ratzenberger was indeed considered PIXAR’s lucky charm, since his voice is heard in every one of PIXAR’s animated features.

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

Have fun!

  1. This was fun! This was the first I’ve seen the puzzles. Any chance that there’s an archive of the old puzzles available somewhere for those of us who are just finding these fun games? Thanks!!!
