    Nice post, to add to that:

    Terminology regarding break-downs and derailments refers to the number of cap shots that were fired in each situation. 3-shot meant "unable to proceed forward," like when the boats stalls. 4-shot meant a medical or security problem on the boat, and 6-shot meant derailment. These terms are not supposed to be used anymore, especially not on the radio, but many Skips use them anyway. Today, airhorn blasts are used to signal other boats to the problem because they are clearer.

    Duck!

    New trivia is always a wonderful thing. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    I really wish I had something to contribute to this thread. I really don't know all that much about WDW yet. Ummm, one thing I learned quickly was that you can get Strongbow Cider in the half-yard from the pub in England at Epcot, where you can use your Disney Dining Card, so it only ends up costing a $6. That's just the most awesome thing ever. As for little factoids and details, I'm still learning them, Disneyland is still where most of my knowledge lies. I just found out about the Mr. Toad tribute in Owl's House in Pooh not too long ago. That's a neat little thing.

It is in where the movie screen is and a bunch of stand ups to get ur pic taken with!!!!!

    Ooooh, no, I didn't know that! I don't go in there because it's irritating to get in there with a stroller. I'll have to make the extra effort next time I go... even though I never got to go on WDW's Toad (my first visit was June 2001).

    There's a Toad car at Mouse Surplus... It'll probably go on ebay at some point... http://www.mousesurplus.com/ Lots of other good stuff up right now from them.

    Awesome...Thanks for the info!!! I will check it out!

    DYK..That the Tower of Terror at WDW is only 199 feet tall... If they made it 200 they would have had to put blinking red light on it. (Some stupid FAA rule in FL) They didn't want to take any of the theming away from it so they made it exactly 199 feet tall!!!!! Also, DYK that the tower was ACTUALLY STRUCK BY LIGHTNING during the construction...This is NO joke!!!!!

    Hey Kyle, is it true that there's a hole in the scrim at the HM in the Ballroom Scene because some idiot smuggled a gun into the park on opening day and tried to shoot at the ghosts, thinking they were real?

    I hope it's okay that I jump into this one.

    You're thinking of Disneyland. I don't know if it was opening day, or what the heck the motivation was, but there's definitely a scrim in their Mansion. Just above the ballroom dancers (yeah, I'm a geek).

    After looking at urban legend sites and speaking with posters on other forums I have come to the conclusion that this never did happen, even though some sites say that it did, but these sites have no credibility in IMHO!

    DYK...Minnie has over 200 different outfits!!!!!

    While riding Pooh, be sure to kinda duck and look to the far wall in Owl's house before you crash into it. There is a pic on the wall that is of Mr. Toad hand Owl the deed to the building

    You can also find a another Mr.Toad running in the far of one of the backgrounds in Pooh!!!!!

    DYK.....Water doesn't fall off of SSE. It is funneled through cracks in the geodesic dome and sent into the World Showcase Lagoon?????

    Yes it was the scrim at DL, it is a huge one piece unit that was lowered into the building by a crane, too much to remove and replace for one small bullet hole.
