Jack Spence is on a leave of absence until 2014. This is a reprint of a blog he wrote several years ago. This blog originally ran in 2010 and was accurate at the time of publication.
Here are the answers to yesterday’s quiz. Remember, you might have come up with an equally good answer – something I didn’t think about.
Once again, DO NOT send me your answers. No winners will be announced and there are no prizes to win. This is strictly for your amusement.
A: Picture 3 is an AudioAnimatronics animal on the Jungle Cruise. The others are of real animals on Kilimanjaro Safaris.
B: Pictures 2, 3, and 4 were all opening day countries in Epcot (October 1, 1982). Norway (Picture 1) didn’t open until June 1988.
C: Although all of these rides are extremely similar to one another, the attractions in Florida, Tokyo, and California are all named Haunted Mansion. Picture 4 is of Phantom Manor in Paris, a different name.
D: Picture 1 is of the All Star Sports Resort, a budget accommodation. The other pictures are of the Yacht, Polynesian, and Contemporary, all deluxe resorts.
E: Horizons in Picture 1 no longer exists. Tower of Terror, Dinosaur, and Carousel of Progress are all still going strong.
F: Although all four rides depicted spin, Pictures 1, 2, and 3 fly while the Teacups in Picture 4 stays on the ground. However, Picture 3, Triceratop Spin is in the Animal Kingdom while the other three are all in the Magic Kingdom. So both 3 and 4 are correct. (But I was going for 4).
G: Although all of the pictures are of cars, Picture 2 of a Main Street Vehicle is the only one that doesn’t run on a track.
H: All of the pictures were taken at Downtown Disney, but Picture 4 was the only one taken at the Westside. The other three were taken at the Marketplace.
I: Only Picture 2, the General Joe Potter is a real boat.
J: Although all of the pictures depict attractions that no longer exist, only Picture 4, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was located in Fantasyland, the other three were in Tomorrowland.
K: Picture 3 of the Main Street Train Station is the only picture that can still be duplicated today. Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat obscures the Chinese Theater in Picture 1. Bay Lake Tower now stands next to the Contemporary, making Picture 3 impossible. And Mickey’s Hand was removed from Picture 4.
L: Picture 3 is at Disneyland. Pictures 1, 2, and 4 are at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.
M: The castle in Picture 3 is named Cinderella Castle. The castles in Pictures 1, 2, and 4 are all Sleeping Beauty Castle.
N: Attraction poster Number 1 is from Disneyland, California. All the others are from the Magic Kingdom in Florida.
O: Picture 2 of Goofy’s House is at Disneyland, California. All the others are from the Magic Kingdom in Florida.
P: That’s Typhoon Lagoon in Picture 1 while the rest were all taken at Blizzard Beach.
Q: Picture 3 is the odd picture. All the other attractions have Cast Members narrating your adventure.
R: Picture 2 of the Liberty Tree in the Magic Kingdom is the only real tree.
S: Picture 4 is of the Hong Kong Jungle Cruise and this scene only exists at this park. The others are all at the Magic Kingdom in Florida.
T: Picture 3 is at Disney’s California Adventure while the other three are all at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
U: Picture 3 was taken in the Horizons attraction. Pictures 1, 2, and 4 were taken in the World of Motion attraction.
V: The gorilla in Picture 1 was taken on the Pangani Jungle Exploration Trail. The Komodo dragon, taper, and tiger were taken on the Maharaja Jungle Trek. I realize that the Komodo dragon is a reptile and the other three are mammals, but I thought that was too easy.
W: Picture 2 is of African Outpost at Epcot’s World Showcase. The other three were taken at Harambe in the Africa section of the Animal Kingdom.
X: Picture 1 is of the Seattle monorail. Picture 2 is the Tokyo Disney Resort monorail. Picture 3 is the Disneyland Resort monorail. And Picture 4 is of the Walt Disney World monorail.
Y: Picture 4 was taken at the All Star Sports Resort. The other three were taken at the Pop Century Resort.
Z: Picture 2 no longer exists in Dinoland USA at the Animal Kingdom. This dinosaur was removed to make room for Aladar.
