Grab your poncho and your sunscreen, because we’re heading to Florida. This week, for the park’s 50th birthday, we’ve got Walt Disney World Trivia. We hit Disneyland before, so it only seemed right to cover the park hitting the big 5-0 this month. Test your Disney Trivia skills with thirty questions this week. Good luck and keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times.

Put the torches and pitchforks away, my friends. Spidey is staying with the MCU.
Whatever money issues between Sony and Disney that were an impasse have, apparently, been sorted out. So we can look forward to seeing Spider-Man in other MCU movies as well as MCU characters appearing in Spider-Man films.
Happy Friday everyone!
You’ve got a friend in us. This week, ahead of Toy Story 4, we’re putting up thirty questions about the animation juggernaut, Pixar. From their humble beginnings in the 1980’s to one of the highest grossing studios in the world, Pixar has come a long way.
It took over 50 years, but this Disney classic finally got a sequel. Is it a Toy Story level sequel that easily stands beside or above the original, is it a direct to video cash grab quality sequel that never should have been made, or is it something in between?
It’s been awhile gang, but there’s a couple of big ones to show off.
- Anna and the Apocalypse
- Captain Marvel
- Halloween (2018)
- Mary Poppins Returns
Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.
The final box office tallies are in for 2016, and Disney made six of the top ten grossing films of the year. Of course, it helps to have Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel in your inventory. Disney’s performance this past year is the first time a movie studio broke $1 billion in ticket sales.
- Finding Dory ($486 million)
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($451 million)
- Captain America: Civil War ($408 million)
- The Secret Life of Pets ($368 million)
- The Jungle Book ($364 million)
- Deadpool ($363 million)
- Zootopia ($341 million)
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($330 million)
- Suicide Squad ($325 million)
- Doctor Strange ($230 million)
Nice timing, Disney. With everyone re-discovering The Force Awakens from the comforts of their own homes, the studio follows up with our first real look at the stand-alone Star Wars story.
